Any who are lucky enough to see him often wish that they hadn’t. A slim, yet muscular, man with clever green eyes and dark red hair wearing black boots, dark grey pants, a black sleeveless shirt, black gloves, a black bandanna, a cloth with a strange design on it hiding his face, and a black cloak covering much of his body; he has the look of a man who is best left alone. To most strangers his eyes have a neutral emotion. He seems neither to enjoy or dislike most strangers. Kind people and friends are often reassured by the genuinely kind look in his eyes and his normally good mannered nature.

Since the moment of his birth, Darien Nathair was raided as a member of the shadowy unofficial house of isiles. During one of his training evaluations, Darien made a grab for a ledge close to the top of a bell tower. The tower was tall, the stones where loose at the top, and o top of that, it was raining.
