Bio:

Lazoryel was born in the Snow Eagle airy north of Rashemen. After he reached puberty, the Avariel elves exposed his mother and him and banished them from their realm. Together, they traveled to an arcanic Warmage college. That is were he received his arcanic instruction. Reaching adulthood, he left his mother behind and seeked adventures. Being a partly demonic being, he chooses to hide this fact by using his innate shape changing abilities.

After adventuring in Vaasa for a while with his partner, Galen Starrag, they joined forces with another adventuring company caught in a bizarre prophecy involving Giant kin. Together, they travelled through Damara and Impiltur, were he even finished third in the prestigious Alabaster cup competitions (but could not remain long enough in Lyrabar to be rewarded due to being wanted for the murders of three guards). After successfully accomplishing part of the prophecy, his companions and he were transported in the middle of the Anauroch desert. While travelling on the Black road, they encountered Zhentarim operatives. That when he developed an interest in joining the organisation. Further in the desert, he was given the possibility to live a transformation allowing him to become a full fledge sorcerer rather then a warmage. Seeking more arcane power and feeling restrained by the limitations of the warmage training, he accepted. Lazoryel was later on accepted in the Zhentarim organisation, where he now serves as a field agent/spy and is known as a Zhentarim Skymage. His current flying mount is a gynosphinx named Emuishéré.

Soon after his admittance into the Zhentarim, he was able to peak at his mother's doings of late. To her son's dismay, the sorceress seem to be assisting the demon prince Orcus himself. Later that year, Lazoryel and his companions were trapped in some kind of test that his mother had ordered and designed. Although they passed the test with ease, the adventurers were quite angry at the fey'ri's mother, as was Lazoryel. He now knows that a confrontation with her is imminent as she clearly indicated that she wanted him to assist her in some task. He doesn't intend to cooperate with her.

During a stop to Silverymoon while on his way to the mythical realm of Heartsvale, Lazoryel made a social experiment. Afraid of slowly being dragged into evil's arms by his association with the Zhentarim and his demonic blood, he decided to fight those impulses. He restrained from extensive chasing of women and tried to establish a healthy relationship with a young illuskan woman, Moeera. He also decided to befriend his flying mount, Emuishéré, rather then treat her as a slave.

While imprisoned within Bleak castle, the palace of the maddened titan half-god Lanaxis, Lazoryel blamed Larena for the death of their companion Ruknar. Enraged, he assaulted her using deadly fire magic. If it hadn't been for the intervention of Galen, one of them would have killed the other. They parted ways after leaving the castle, being rescued by Tavis Burdun and a thayan ally.

Lazoryel's actions weightened heavily on his recently awakened conscience. He received an atonement spell from a priestess of Sharess in Waterdeep and is now under a geas to try to please Larena on his way for forgiveness from her part.

Recently, new dilemma has plagued the fey'ri. First, going through their fallen ally Melvas the Red's note, the company encountered what is most probably a trail of tiefling birth which seems to match their past voyages from the last few months. Further investigation confirmed that the evil long spear Lazoryel carried was responsible as she counteracted mean of contraception, making sure that the fey'ri would impregnate every women he slept with. Under advisement from the church of Sharess, he decided to do the right thing and give a certain amount of money to each woman and have the malicious spear destroyed. With Moeera also carrying his child, he still has to decide what he will do with her.

He is also forced to make a decision that would make him choose between the Zhentarim and his friend Ruknar as the Chosen of Bane has personally ordered Lazoryel to hand over to the organization an artefact of giant craft that his friend possess. Lazoryel knows that there is no real choice to make between the two. His friends will always be his priority and that will probably force his hand into leaving the Zhentarim sooner then he anticipated. He will none the less try to negotiate a compromised that will make the Zhentarim wait and Ruknar keep the crown.

Lazoryel currently travels with his long time associate and friend Galen and the other adventurers caught in the prophecy's web, now known by some as the Company of the Glacier: Ruknar (formerly a sossrim human male, reincarnated into a dwarf) and Larena of the Great Glacier. Recently, however, the company lost the fighting arm of Dragon killer, then as he decided to go on his own separate way.

Lazoryel is always very concerned about his physical appearance. In his true form, he has ivory white skin covered with infernal runic tattoos, long jet black hair and leathery wings. He usually appears as a dark feathered Avariel or moon elf when traveling in regions where his nature could bring him harm. He is a very lustful person, an echo of his incubi/succubus blood running through his veins. He actively worships the demigoddess Sharess. Although he is not entirely superficial, his taste for either elegance or beauty guides most of his decisions. His current flying mount is an excellent example of such occurrences, as he could have had at his service a more powerful but less stylish mount.
