Tavar's name, but to no avail. Whatever the truth was, it is not known to Tavar. Alvia died when Tavar was three years old and he has no memory of her.
The kind woffen that had taken care of Tavar were poor and simple people. They did not have much, but they shared their lives with the happless young human and raised him the best they could. Tavar grew among the woffen and learnt their ways. He ran the streets of Aylon with the woffen children, hunted pibber among the alleys and fought with teeth and claws like everyone else.
As Tavar grew, his life became more and more violent. He became involved with the githerins of Yobreh and started to run errands for them or "working the crowds" in the streets for money (pick-pocketing, stealing and hustling mostly). What seemed to await Tavar was, an often short, career as a diyorda of Aylon. Fate, however, had other plans.
During Tavar's 15th mullin a ship entered Aylon's harbour. Onboard was Tavar's only remaining relative - uncle Falkem Johnom, whom had travelled all the twelve seas of Jorune. He had returned home only to find his sister dead and her baby boy raised by woffen. Falkem pitied the boy and decided to "rescue" him from his githerin fate. Just before the ship set sail again, Falkem paid some of his comrades well to club the boy senseless and bring him onboard the ship. Therefore, with a roaring headache, Tavar awoke at sea, already far from home.
During the following two years Tavar travelled between the civilised realms with his uncle and learnt the respectable trade of a sailor (which -it turned out - had quite a few similarities with his previous occupation.)
One fine eris day, Falkem and Tavar found themselves left behind in Ardoth with little money in their pockets. Despite being hungover, the pair managed to get themselves aboard a new ship. This time they served on an exploratory ship bound for Hobeh. Its mission - to seek the mysterious ruins of the deep Hobeh desert. Tavar's life changed that day, as he joined a fearless band of travelling condrij and adventurers. Abandoning his life as a sailor, Tavar has since that day seen many wondrous and terrible things, such as the forbidden shantic cities of Hobeh, the closed lands of Ros Crendor, the colonies of Drail, the wilds of Temauntro, the fury of the eelshon she-evid and the terror of the Dreamlords. He has proved himself to be a cunning and fearless condrij - with a streak of githerin in him.
