Like almost all Dragonborn, Kriv was born in to an honorable clan. Just before his hatching his clan, aligned with an Eladrin community, were fighting in a territorial war. Almost all of his clan was wiped out during a “special ops” attack. Eladrin forces arrived late to the scene and were only able to pick up the survivors (20 some women and children). Kriv was raised in an Eladrin community. He follows Correlan, and pledge himself as a Swordmage at a young age.
In a reflection of the difference between himself and his Eladrin school mates, Kriv chose the broad sword over the Eladrin long sword.
He does not doubt that there we no other survivors from his clan, but he is young and must journey back to his clan’s homeland and the battle site.
Well kept in appearance, Kriv carries himself honorably at all times. He is short for a Dragonborn, but heavily muscled. He has fine gold scales and wears leather armor of the same color. His broadsword has a bronze color, though made of steel; a trick he learned from an Eladrin craftsman.
His mannerisms are more Eladrin-like than Dragonborn-like, though most beings not of either race could not notice the subtle differences. He is extroverted around most creatures. However he is shy around other Dragonborn, as he does not believe he knows how to properly act like a Dragonborn. He is not ashamed of his upbringing (he has always been honorable), but rather he yearns to learn as much as possible about how “normal” Dragonborn act.
He currently travels with no one specifically. Upon achieving his Swordmage powers, Kriv has struck out from the Eladrin city of his upbringing. When possible, he travels employed as a body guard for merchants. He selects each of his jobs to take him closer to his clan homeland.
