Because people brought up Elaith and his unknown status in the Realms, I decided to create my version of what he would look like (stat-wise) for 4th Edition in the 1479 to 1487 DR time-frame.

ELAITH "THE SERPENT" CRAULNOBER; Level 18 Controller
Medium fey humanoid (eladrin); XP 2,000
HP 168; Bloodied 84; Initiative +15
AC 32, Fortitude 29, Reflex 31, Will 33; Perception +18
Speed 6; Low-light vision
Saving Throws +1 (ring of protection)

TRAITS
- Duelist’s Poise
Whenever Elaith hits an enemy granting combat advantage to him, the enemy is immobilized until the end of Elaith’s next turn.
STANDARD ACTIONS
(m) Longsword and Dagger (weapon) • At-Will
Attack: Melee 1 or Ranged 5 (dagger) (one creature); +23 vs. AC
Hit: 2d8 + 15 damage.
-
(r) Magic Missile (evocation, force) • At-Will
Effect: Range 20 (one or two creatures)
Hit: 13 force damage.
-
(M) Twin-Sword Style (weapon) • Encounter
Effect: Elaith shifts up to his speed. Each time Elaith enters a square adjacent to an enemy for the first time during the move, he makes a longsword or dagger attack against that enemy.
-
(A) Web (zone) • Daily
Attack Area burst 2 within 20 (creatures in the burst); +22 vs. Reflex
Hit: The targets are immobilized (save ends)
Effect: The burst creates a zone of difficult terrain until the end of the encounter. Any creature that ends its movement in the zone is immobilized (save ends).
-
(A) Heightened Fireball (evocation, fire) • Encounter
Attack: Area burst 3 within 20 (creatures in the burst); +22 vs. Reflex
Hit: 6d6 + 8 fire damage.
Miss: Half-damage.
-
(B) Enhanced Cone of Cold (cold, evocation) • Recharge when first bloodied
Attack: Close blast 5 (creatures in blast); +22 vs. Reflex
Hit: 3d8 + 6 cold damage and each target is slowed (save ends).
Miss: Half-damage and each target is slowed until the end of Elaith's next turn.
MOVE ACTIONS
Dimension Door (arcane, teleportation) • Daily
Effect: Elaith teleports up to 10 squares.
-
Fey Step (teleportation) • Encounter
Effect: Elaith teleports up to 5 squares.
TRIGGERED ACTIONS
Shield (arcane) • Encounter
Trigger: Elaith is hit by an attack.
Effect (No Action): Elaith adds +4 to his AC and Reflex until the end of his next turn.
Skills Acrobatics +20, Arcana +20, Stealth +20
Str 17 (+12); Dex 22 (+15); Wis 16 (+12)
Con 15 (+11); Int 23 (+15); Cha 17 (+12)
Alignment evil; Languages Chondathan, Common, Elven
Equipment bracers of defense (paragon tier), dagger +2, longsword, ring of ramming, ring of protection
Spellbook: In addition to the spells he has shown here, Elaith spent countless decades during the Wailing years perfecting his wizardry and adding spells to his expansive spellbook. He knows most Daily and Utility spells for wizards from 1st through 17th, and can certainly replace these spells with Encounter versions from the same span of levels. He also has a Ritual Book with an unknown amount of Rituals inside.

Things were progressing well for Elaith towards the end of the 14th century on Faerűn. His daughter, well off and taken care of in Evermeet, would receive the finest training and knowledge of elfdom in the world and she was safe from the perils of humankind. After tending to her place on the Island of Elves, Eliath returned to his business ventures in Waterdeep. He maintained his criminal network and activity while continuing to train in both blade and spell, plying both to his trade.

Things were going smoothly for the elf when disaster struck in 1385 DR. The year of Blue Fire ushered in an era of darkness for all of Toril as the Spellplague swept the world. Even as parts of the world burned, and others still vanished completely, Waterdeep suffering was mild by comparison. Considering that a significant portion of the city is warded magically and that there's those who tap into the Weave all over (and under) the area, it's a wonder it wasn't blown off the map entirely. Still, this was little comfort to the moon elf who was struggling to keep his magic abilities under control, not to mention finding a way to travel to Evermeet appeared to be near impossible.

For many years after the ensuing chaos that wrecked the world, Elaith was resourceful throughout. Relying on his cunning, martial prowess with the blade, and fostering what magic he had available, he began to collect the pieces of his criminal entrepreneurship during the Wailing Years. He'd learn that much of his magical abilities were intact, even gaining an ability to let him pass through Faerie for a few small seconds which was similar to many teleport spells he was already accustomed to. Much of the spells he had locked in his spellbook were re-purposed into Ritual abilities and others, still worked as intended.

By gaining these skills quickly he was ahead by most other magic users in the city. And it was through these abilities and his shrewd intellect that he was able to book passage back to the Isle of Elves. The journey was longer than anticipated, more perils awaited him and the crew aboard the Crimson Dawn, but he was victorious and found himself once again among the Tel-quessir. The reunion was more pleasant than he expected, learning that his daughter was fine and excelling in all of her training. Not only that, but he had learned that the veil between Evermeet and that of the Faerie (or as the N-Tel-Quess say, "Feywild") was as thin as gossamer strands.

Soon Elaith found himself back among Humanity and along the bustling streets of a rebuilding, and expanding Waterdeep. What new conquests could the moon elf hope to strive for?

Very well done. *applause emoji needed* Elaith would have also fit into Skirmisher mode. This example (and the invoker class) inspire me to repurchase the 4e core books and Arcane/Divine/Martial/Primal Power sourcebooks.

Thank you! With Elaith, one of the difficult decisions was what he would be in terms of role. On one hand, I can certainly see him as a Skirmisher because of his dueling and fighting style. But as this was more direction of a conversion/update, and because he had 9 levels of Wizard, I felt Controller was more important. He's a guy who doesn't want to get into unnecessary scrapes and combat, will use spells to try foes or at least keep them at bay.

BTW I love the Invoker class. So conceptually cool and does that Divine wizard aspect in a cool way.

If you mean the "Realms Personalities", yes.

Green Giant has put in appearances here, though not recently. He may have some contact info listed in his profile.

Unfortunately, I believe most of that information was lost when they shut down the gleemax forms at WotC.

Man, I wish that page had some download option, rather than trying to read truncated pages on a site where ads cover part of what you're looking at.
