Palinthusian is a large fellow for a half-elf standing at 6'1", his broad frame tends to make him come off quite imposing. He thus tends to prefer to dress in simple clothing with minimum frills, but also make sure to keep himself well-armed at all times when he travels. His human blood gives him a darker complexion then a full-blooded silvanesti elf and Palinthusian has gone to growing a conspicuous mustache to show his human heritage. While he has some skill in the use of a harp, his singing voice is downright wretched leaving many listeners bewilder and the sound of a harp music followed by a most wretched singing to it.


Palinthusian see things in very simple terms in which there is only black and white. To those whom he considers his friends are paragons of virtue. Else they are his enemies and the most unforgivable of villainy. He had learned this attitude from his foster father who has a soldier's view of the world. This attitude has nonetheless gotten Pal into a number of trouble spots throughout his travels, but despite this he has still steadfastly held onto this view.

Perhaps one reason for his continual survival is Pal's penchant for wandering off into the wilds of nature whenever the mood strikes him. These bouts tend to result in his disappearances for years as Pal tends to lose track of time while immerse in the nature that he adores. This adoration does lead to one of the few sorrow in his life as he long to have been born as a full-blooded Silvanesti elf which he believes would grant him a greater connection to nature.


Palinthusian was born to Curathas and Elineaeri Chaine in the city of Silvanost. His mother was a full-blooded Silvanesti elf of the House of Gardener whom had been kidnapped & assaulted by highwaymen, but was rescued by Curathas an officer of the Silvanesti army. Elineaeri soon gave birth to Palinthusian and later married Curathas despite this stain to her honor.

In Silvanesti, a half-elf was considered an inferior, and Pal's childhood was fraught with problems despite his parents' loving attitude to him. To escape the scorn, Palinthusian took to sanctuary amidst the wilderness which he grew to adore for its simplicity. This finally drove him when he was old enough to set out into the world to find adventure as a mean to escaping from the harness of the other Silvanesti elves. His travels took him too many places and he saw many different sights along his journey from the great city of Palanthas to the Lords of Doom. The coming of the Chaos War was a time of sadness for him as he saw the nature he loved devastated by the cruel minions of Chaos whom he slew when encountered. The war conclusion gave him no satisfaction as his spellcasting abandoned him severing one of his connections to nature.

Time has been gentle to Palinthusian who still retain much the same vigor and strength of his youth, though it has unfortunately done little to shift him out of his stubborn view of the world. When he had heard of the raising of the Silvanesti shield, Pal returned to his homeland to confirm this for himself. While he was unable to penetrate it, he did spend many months trying. Eventually he departed traveling across the changed lands once more till the War of Souls came and brought back the familiar spellcasting power he had possess awhile back. Also news came to him that the Silvanesti shield had fallen, but that dreadful Minotaurs had claim the land driving the Silvanesti elves out. Enraged by the thought of the land being befouled by these beasts Palinthusian has once again travel back to his homeland to provide aid however it may seems fit.


Palinthusian is currently between animal companions, his latest one a black bear of some size was recently killed during an encounter with some Minotaurs. Pal is too grief stricken to seek out a new companion in the moment or at least another black bear for the time being.
