Yntryg Nayolani, commonly called Nayolan and nicknamed 'Sparrow', is an aelotoi rogue and a citizen of Solhaven.

History

Prior to arrival in Elanthia, Nayolan served as resource scout for the Kiramon on her home world of Bre'Naere. Like others of her race currently residing in Elanthia, she came through the portal from Bre'Naere to Gyldemar Forest near Ta'Illistim in 5103. She was quite young at the time, barely into her teen years by her best estimation, and scrawny with malnutrition. Not long after, she slipped away from the refugee camps and chased her curiosity into the streets of Ta'Vaalor. It was there that she learned the rudiments of combat, theft, and began her lifelong love affair with locks.

Ta'Vaalor is also where she first met her best friends, the Mrae'ni Seralanai and the Gaeh'deh Saehnar, as well as the human Silverphenix Luminasa who came to be her protector and would eventually adopt her as his daughter.

She and her friends soon relocated to Solhaven, despite the ongoing turmoil in the area. She learned the hard way not to trust strangers, as members of the the Dark Alliance seemed to take delight in tormenting her. She became the victim of assault, kidnapping, murder and sacrifice at their hands a number of times before the campaign for the Griffin Sword was finally over.

In the face of repeated depredations, Nayolan grew stealthier and more canny, yet retained her playful sense of mischief and her defiance. Always enamored of music, she wrote songs describing the past plights of her people and their new-found freedoms and hopes, which she occasionally performed publicly at such events as the first Aelotoi Pageant, at Bardfest, and at smaller gatherings over the years. Outside of her songs, her usual manner of speech in the Common tongue is notably terse, as she demonstrates little patience and less care for its grammatical structures. Those who engage her in Aelotian may find her far more inclined to converse in depth.

These days, she is most often found in and around Solhaven, where she has gained a reputation as a skilled locksmith. She also has a standing arrangement with the officers of White Haven in Icemule Trace and provides locksmithing services as needed during their Service Nights.
