The Whisperer in Darkness
Innkeeper at The Slaughtered Lamb
A half-elf, just under 6ft tall. Physically, his elven qualities are played down in comparison to his human aspects, his hair, though a light, elvish brown, is cut short and a well trimmed goatee adorns his chin, a gift from his human father. He is well built, appearing to be more strong than sleek, his arm muscles visible despite the long sleeved shirt he wears. A long scar runs down the left side of his face, narrowly missing his eye.
A product of a violent raid on a human village; Draevek’s mother was raped by an Elven assailant who broke into her home and discovered her cowering in a cupboard. As a result of this, Draevek cannot abide a man who raises his fist to a woman, and spent his early years with a deep hatred for Elves.
During his early teens, Draevek’s mother died and he left their settlement to wander the Earth. It was during the next fifteen years of adventuring that he befriended an Elf who aided him after a bear attack. It was through this friendship that he learned to tolerate and then even respect the Elven people, most of whom. he discovered, were friendly towards humans.
Eventually the pair wound up in Raylack and Draevek quickly fell in love with the village and the surrounding area. He decided to settle down there, at least for a while, but his Elven friend continued on, wishing to explore more of the world. Draevek got a job at the local inn, The Slaughtered Lamb, and after almost a decade of employment there became its innkeeper, a role he has retained to this day.
