A former Emporion spice trader, the failure of both his sons (Nystros and Taelarn) to master Sorcery has caused him to take up the mantle. He knows that it will be centuries before he learns anything of real power at home in new Ta'Faendryl and so decides to travel to Wehnimer's Landing, believing that the freedom of the frontier ("the Diaspora of Ta'Faendryl" as Maltreis calls it) will allow his Sorcery to blossom. Of course, his love Cyntherea traveled with him, his constant companion.


You see Maltreis the Defiler.
He appears to be a Faendryl Dark Elf.
He is tall.  He appears to be mature.  He has deep-set violet eyes and ashen skin.  He has long, flowing white hair with a black streak running through it.  He has a gaunt face, a sharp nose and long pointed ears.
He is in good shape.
He is holding a dark-stained spiral lor runestaff capped with a three-pronged invar spire in his right hand.
He is wearing a crudely chiseled dreamstone amulet depicting a writhing mass of tentacles, a gray cloak with a black triangular hem that has smoky wisps atop each point, a cross-body thick leather runestaff harness, an alabaster silk shirt embroidered about the cuffs with golden whorls, some scarred double leather, a black leather wand belt clasped with a Faendryl crest-enameled buckle, a waxed black leather pouch, a faceted bronze-hued glaes scroll tube, some inky black cordetum pants with slightly frayed cuffs, and some heavy black cordovan boots.
