Background:

Born in Elturel, Taurven's young life was difficult. He never knew his father and his mother was forced to make her living as a seamstress, disowned by her family. They had taken a dim view of her dalliance with an elf, and had no room for a half-elf child. Taurven's mother had little time for him so he grew up on Elturel's streets. It seemed like there was never enough food, so Taurven turned to pick-pocketing and burglary to supplement his income. Taurven always managed to stay one jump ahead of the law and when he was old enough, he joined the Hellriders as a recruit. In that organization he learned to ride, fight, and use a bow. He was assigned to the scout division of the Hellriders, where he learned to be sneaky, even in heavy armor. Taurven really didn't take to the military life, though. He mustered out as soon as his first term was up. Taurven next joined the High Moor Hero's Guild, earning some notoriety as a successful explorer of old ruins in the High Moor. Currently Taurven is a wanderer. He takes on contracts with trade caravans going to places he has never seen before. Taurven's travels have taken him as far North as Waterdeep, and as far South as Calimport. He has walked the busy streets of Baldur's Gate and the Gothic maze that is Zhentil Keep. In Zhentil keep he, and a band, calling themselves the Ascendant Eight, fought a shadow war against the Zhentarim. Taurven does not speak of this, for it was a loosing battle. The Eight are dead or scattered. Taurven is best known among the merchants who travel the ways of Faerun for his skill as a scout and guide.

Appearance and personality.:
Taurven is 6' tall and weighs 182 lbs. Taurven has brown, long hair that he draws back in a pony-tail most of the time. His goatee is of darker brown than his hair. Taurven's eyes are black and expressive.
Taurven wears a black leather armor. His long sleeved undershirt and trousers are dove-gray. He wears a black cape with a hood that is usually thrown back. His leather boots are black and dagger hilts jut out of his boot-tops. Taurven's forearms are guarded by black leather bracers. He keeps his bow in a black leather case on his back, along with a black leather quiver and backpack. His rapier is scabbarded on his left hip.

Though he started life as a thief, Taurven long ago grew disinterested in stealing. Instead he wants to make up for past mistakes. Even well intentioned ones. He wants to leave the world a better place than he found it. Taurven is willing to help the helpless and innocent, wherever he finds the need.
