Teriliáron Er Ethil Eberoy born under the 15th of Rhaan, 23 years before the war, at the Tower of Joy in Zilargo.
At birth Teriliáron was like any other female of her race. Her parents, Idhrenniel (the mother) and Suiadan (the father), were happy to receive a daughter, having already received a son. The family stayed in the tower of joy in till some time after the war broke out, they then spent much time traveling to find work as blacksmiths and engineers wherever there was a need. Their travels were often dangerous and many times the family had to fight to stay alive in a country torn by a seemingly endless war. When they were not traveling the family would work for in one of the bigger cities, usually for some lord who wanted the best weapons and armors he could get and was willing to pay the price. Teriliáron grew up seeing the land that went past every day being burnt to the ground one day in the name of justice, only to be reclaimed again days or years later by someone else in the name of justice. Seeing fleeing refugees from cities she had never heard of became something that happened like the coming of winter. She learned the art of crafting from a very early age. First helping her mother and father with small repairs and later building her own things together with her brother, Mordemirdanian, who taught her many things that made her in the artificer that she is today. During their travels they meet many a strange people traveling to or from the great many battles of the war, and half way in to the war the family had a bit of a reputation as traveling smiths of great skill. One meeting near the end of the war hade maybe the most impact on Teriliáron then any other. The family was fleeing a particular nasty lord who had requested their services. During the flight they happened to meet a dwarven family who had also turned down the lord request and had also made a rather dashing escape. One of the sons in the dwarven family, named Adamentus Hammerforg who completely lacked the talent needed to become a blacksmith, fell head over heels (which is not very much on a dwarf) in love with Teriliáron. Teriliáron in turn had the same feelings for Amdamentus but their relationship would not last longer then the time that the two spent traveling together. They made no vow or promises of any kind since their two races are so different. They did not know if they would ever see each other after the day that they went their separate ways. Not long after the two lovers were separated did Teriliáron leave her family to find her own fortune. She went with her family’s blessing and the hope that they would see each other again under the shadow of the tower of joy. After the war Teriliárons family went back to the tower and by a coincident the Hammerforg family settled there as well. The only contact that Teriliáron now has with her family is by letters, few and far between.
