His full proper elven name being Kaganthalas Amarandion Caladrel he prefers the shorter version “Kagan” a nickname given to him from his non-Elven friends. The product of a tryst between the human wizard Ixiolander and his Elven mother Merisiel a “priestess” of the Pleasure Salon of Calistria in the Ascendant Court district of Absalom.
Born a child of two worlds he struggled to find his place in society even in such a large city. The conflicting internal psychology of the human and elven elements of his psyche did not combine harmoniously. The combination of the closed mind of the elves and the open mind of humans often placed him a unique and often brittle mental dynamic.
Even as a child this lead him into occasional bouts of severe depression and borderline madness, however his unique psychic structure also enabled him to manifest unusal powers. He found that he could summon creatures at will and had some natural magical abilities. The most unusual and impressive was his ability to summon an eidolon, a being from another plane.
As time passed and his powers matured he discovered that he could actually mold this being to conform to his wishes. And conform it he did. Desperate for someone to talk to and confide in he gave his eidolon shape. He wished it to be a female and she was. Seeking acceptance he wished her to be in the shape of a half-elf like himself and she was. He found that he could even change her to be any humanoid shape he chose.
He named her Ramona which means “Protecting Hands” in the common toungue and though intelligent and with thoughts and feelings of her own she never once did object to any of his desires. Since then she has fufilled many roles over the years for him. Friend, lover, teacher and protector. As their bond grew stronger they found that they could communicate telepathically and
even sense what the other was feeling.
Ramona became his constant companion and has proven herself to be a capable fighter relying on Kagan to mold and assist her with spells and evolutions giving her unique abilities to turn the tide of battle or overcome obsticles. Like Kagan she has developed an affinity for
crystals and faceted gemstones, each seeing them as beautiful and poetic reflections of their own multifaceted character and identities. A common saying half-elves use with one another is to “polish your diamond,” meaning to refine, sharpen, and polish their best qualities
that lie within.
Beyond simply their aesthetic appreciation for gems and crystals Kagan and Ramona seem to show an almost supernatural connection with them being able to induce minor prestidigitation-like effects in crystals and gems they touch, causing them to glow or change color or even dance about in the air. Though where as Kagan is a skilled craftsman of gems and jewelry and is able to scuplt Ramona, Ramona has taken that ability to another level and is able to infuse gems, jewelry and other items with tremendous magical powers.
So they travel the world together seeking fortune and to strengthen their bond with one another.
Kagan happy to be with one who accepts him, Ramona happy to be with the one with whom she is tied to this plane of existence with. For only when Kagan sleeps or he summons another
creature using his unique ability or she dies does she have to go back. And even if she does die she will come back the next day and the next for as long as he wishes it to be so.
