Description and HistoryNadan and
his parents lived in the town of Elversult, where his father was a wealthy merchant and
former adventurer. While out one day, the Primeveran's ran across a rare Drow raiding
party. Nadan's father tried to hold them off, but was killed. Just as the Drow drew in to
kill Nadan and his mother, a group of clerics from the nearby temple of Lathander rode up
and drove the Drow away. Nadan immediately devoted his life to Lathander.
As Nadan grew older, he became more and more devoted to Lathander. He
also became more and more obnoxious. He became convinced of the superiority of elves
(especially over dwarves), and his hatred for drow grew every day. He soon decided to
leave his mother and adventure. His reasons were twofold: for the glory of Lathander, and
to hopefull find some drow to destroy. He soon joined the Fellowship of Sundyr, and had
many adventures with them. Living in Sundyr he had regular contact with many of the Riders
of the Elven Flow. He established a temple of Lathander in Sundyr, and preceeded to staff
it with only female clerics. Thus began a war between nadan and the established temple of
Lathander. Nadan had always been a lady's man (he had left his party unguarded once and
slipped away with a women, resulting in near death for many of the party members), and he
felt that only the most beautiful should serve in his temple. Many of the male clergy
found this distasteful!, as did some of the females. However, Nadan's temple did attract
many followers. He also had a practice of cooking huge breakfasts for any who would gather
to watch the sunrise.
While in Sundyr, Nadan met a young human cleric of Mystra named Gail
Voltairan. Her father was Giotto, a member of the Riders. He was not happy about Nadan
seeing his daughter, as Nadan's reputation was well known. However, Nadan was very smitten
with Gail, and he remained faithful to her. They eventually married.
As this time, the Fellowship of Sundyr broke up. Nadan joined the
Riders, and became an important part of their group. Unfortunately, Gail was killed by one
of their enemies and Nadan fell into a morose state. He allowed his temple to be run by
another priest of Lathander, and refused to join the Riders on any adventures. After
months of inactivity, his former comrades in the Fellowship convinced him to rejoin the
Riders. He relented.
In the following months, Nadan began to regain his former attitudes and
obnoxiousness. However, the Riders soon found their entire reality altered when one of
their former friends went back in time and changed history. In this new time, their was no
Riders of Elvenflow, and The Fellowship of Sundyr ruled in their place. Also in this time,
Nadan was married to a winged folk named Dove (in our time she was a relatively new Rider,
but in this time she had been in the Fellowship of Sundyr with Nadan). Once the Riders
succeeded in returning time to its proper place, Nadan and Dove still felt the feelings
they had felt in the other time. They began to court, and then married.
By now Magnus and Ambrosia had had enough of the Riders. They faked
their deaths, so they could go off by themselves, and Nadan (grown more mature since his
marriage), assumed leadership of the Riders of Elvenflow. He presided over a successfull
and stable period of time, with few membership changes or deaths.
Unfortunately, Elven Flow was soon attacked. Most of the Riders,
including Nadan, survived just long enough to see their city destroyed by a follower of
Gilgeam, and then were put into suspended animation. After getting out, Nadan and Dove
decided to go their own way, and left the group. They have been traveling for the past few
years, but are now heading to Unther to help the Riders there in their fight with Tiamat.
