Dravan is the son of Alezandaru and Sajna Nels, two well-known and highly respected archeologists. Alezandaru and Sajna were famous for their work in Osirion. Dravan traveled with his parents, learning on the field and from his parents. He often helped explore and excavate the various tombs and ruins that his parents were often hired to work on. He often worked on disarming traps and seeing things that no one else noticed. His experience with traps also led him to the creation of his own traps. The Pathfinder Society were often clients of the Nels, hiring them to aid in retrieval, excavation, and exploration. As time went on, Dravan become a famous archeologist and treasure hunter in his own right. When Dravan turned 17, the Pathfinders offered membership into the Society. Dravan was excited about this membership, having access to more resources and to work in more foreign locations. His goals in life are to find the rarest treasures, to explorer the deepest tombs in Osirion, to find and explore the lost ruins of Azlanti, and to discover the City of Saventh-Yhi.
Dravan is adventurous and excitable. He often looks for any opportunity to go down in ruins and tombs. He does show a greedy streak when it comes to treasure or valuables, showing why he’s often called a Tomb Raider. He thinks that Tomb Raider’s a term of endearment. He often spends his time researching or devising new traps to catch rival treasure hunters off guard. His philosophy is that you take any opportunity. If it’s life-threatening, that makes the rewards all the more worth it.
Standing at a mere 5’5”, Dravan is by no means an intimidating man. However, he uses his stature to his advantage, throwing his enemies off with his speed. He's relatively young at 18 years. His skin is colored with a tanned olive coloring, not only typical of a man from Osirion, but as a Varisian and a Vudrani. His chin always carries a light bit of black hair. His clothes often consists of something that is comfortable in the heat of Osirion, while being elaborate and colorful as a Varisian is oft to wear. What is puzzling is the Mithral Breastplate armor he always wears. He says that he finds comfort in the armor, despite him being a bard. On his right hip, he carries a small bag of holding. Two daggers hang from his belt. A light crossbow is often slung on his lower back and the bolts are in a quiver that is tied to his upper back. On his left hip is a very decorative rapier. His arms and back are covered in tattoos, bearing script in Varisian, Vudrani, and Osiriani. Some tattoos also bear the symbols of Nethys, Sarenrae, Shelyn, and Desna. He speaks with a light Vudrani accent. On his head, he wears a shawl that covers most of his short black hair.
