Kellen is a thirty year old shaman of the Frost Fox tribe. They originally lived in the western areas of Brevoy and down into the stolen lands, being nomadic as many Kellid tribes are. They nominally worshipped an amalgam of Gorum and the Frost Fox spirit, which is manifested for the shaman in his flying fox familiar, Ryllia.
About seven years ago, Kellen was following the spirits to a place shown to him by Ryllia, and left his tribe for several days. When he returned to them he found destruction everywhere – and the only clue was a weapon marked with the tribal images of the Red Tiger Tribe, he carries that magical spear to this day. His wife, Arkai, and young son, Karki, were missing, along with several other members of the tribe, but Kellen long assumed they were dead.
He tried to follow the tracks, but lost them in a snowstorm. Despondent, he set into the stolen lands and existed for a time near some ruins. Always seeking answers for the Red Tigers who destroyed his family, he carries a grudge even this many years later. His nomadic lifestyle caused him to encounter a half-Kellid, half-elf named Levn, and they together bonded about their past as men on the edges of the law, and lacking a real place of belonging. Together they enter the kingdom of Paza, where the new lords of the land had overthrown the Stag Lord (whom Kellen had met very briefly, and didn’t think highly of) to seek what new adventures take them.
Kellen will likely react poorly if he encounters the Red Tiger tribe, but he knows he isn’t enough of a warrior to exact the vengeance he thinks is due to them (BTW- its totally cool if his assumption is incorrect, but I ran with it for the background).
Kellen is accepting of outcasts, and is always willing to provide others a second chance. He knows he was in a bad place living on the edges of even tribal society, but has come back from that. He credits Levn with helping to pull him from his funk with Levn’s seemingly easy nature and wit; of course he gets frustrated with Levn’s levity at times, but appreciates the other man as a good friend.
