Othniel was born a descendant of Chelaxian nobility who had fled the nascent realm of Galt ahead of the Gray Gardeners. Eventually, they settled in Restov. Young Othniel knew no other life, but was nonetheless raised on tales of the ancient glories of his house by embittered relatives who had lost all they once held dear. Such tales kindled an insatiable thirst for knowledge and power in the young half-elf. Knowledge, to know more of the glorious past. Power, to reclaim those ancient glories and take vengeance on those responsible for his house's fall. Othniel tried to gain entry into the ranks of the Aldori Swordlords, but was rebuffed. A mix of prejudices, against elves, against foreigners, against commoners combined to keep him out. The rejection humiliated him. That he was in truth none of these things, but only perceived as them because of his family's circumstances enraged him, and he added the Swordlords to those he would take vengeance upon. He turned to schools of wizardry, hoping to dabble in the arcane arts which, as a follower of Nethys, he had long revered. There too, he was rejected, unable to provide the steep fees, and without the connections needed to arrange deferred payment, he quickly found himself out on the streets again with little to show but a basic understanding of a few techniques. He was able to find acceptance in Restov, but only with the local Thieves' Guild. He put his talents to great use there, and learned ways to turn the tables on his enemies in the halls of power. How to take the things they valued, how to expose their secrets, and so on. These were talents he would come to depend on, but the fact that he had to resort to such only made him more resentful. Frustrated, he made his way into the stolen lands, where he has lived for years, away from civilization, studying what books he can acquire, practicing the few magical techniques he has any real skill at, and honing his skill with the Aldori blade he pilfered from a Swordlord.
