Rakshakvana is a giantman sorcerer and a devout follower of Tonis. His base of operations is within Solhaven, and he belongs to a branch one of the most powerful criminal underworld groups in Vornavis, known as the Pegasi, associated with the Temple of Tonis in Solhaven. The Pegasi are smugglers and couriers used by many criminal elements in Solhaven and Vornavis. Anything from Luukosian Deathwort to the forbidden tomes of Ta'Illistim can be acquired through them, for a price.


Rakshakvana's (formerly) Maeramil mother, a chief officer on of one of the many smuggling ships owned by the criminal underground, and manned by the Pegasi, was killed a year after his birth in a gang dispute. He doesn't know his father, but knows he was Araime, and a casual fling for his mother. The guild takes good care of its own, and he wanted for nothing. The youth are regarded as manifestations of Tonis and are treated well, although his training in the ways of smuggling began early, accompanying his mentors, a pair of human "merchants" to Ta'Nalfein and back. This regular work went on for his entire childhood and adolescence. For this reason he is very familiar with the culture of Ta'Nalfein, and is comfortable around other races, especially Elves and Gnomes, many of whom he has helped smuggle out of the Turamzzyrian Empire in order to help them escape the Church of Koars' "justice" for one or another trumped up charge.

He developed his magical skills naturally, at a a very young age, the best time to begin magical training. During his upbringing within the "guild" he showed promising skill in both the elementalism of wizards and the spiritualism of clerics. Feeling a natural attraction to sorcery, he began studying with help from the Temple of Tonis and his adopted family.
