Israphel is the 13th child of the Eladrin Shiere Aiel Wintersong. As 13th son, Istraphel’s claim to his father’s holdings is weak at best. This ensured that Israphel grew up being looked down upon by his older siblings. Isolated from his brothers and sisters and all but guaranteed no real inheritance from his parents, Israphel struck out on his own at an early age and began to dabble in the Arcane Arts. Only after recieving word from his second youngest sister, Yustiel, of a terrible accident involving the family did Israphel return to his father’s home. Israphel learned that Aiel was sent to the Abyss to rescue eladrin warriors from dark forces. However he never returned from that mission. Consumed with finding out what became of his father, Israphel betters himself in order to venture in search of answers.
