The Flame of Time
Salvatore grew up in the Seven Mounting Heavens of Celestia. When he was old enough, he joined the Interplanar Guard. One day he was given a new charge of guarding Zar’ah, the princess of the Air elementals. Zar’ah had a vision one day, revealing that there were a group of murderers that had plans to murder her. She breathed her essence into Salvatore and they were attacked. Salvatore woke up and Zar’ah was gone. Salvatore followed her scent until she was not on the wind anymore. He got an anonymous lead saying that a group of five heading south from Hammerfall towards Raven’s Pointe had the body of Zar’ah. He met these travelers and fought them in a rage, killing one of them. Once seeing their reaction to their comrade’s death, his rage ended and he fled ashamed. Salvatore later found out that he was put under a spell, possibly by the same figure who gave him the lead. He wandered the land looking for Zar’ah’s body and also for this party of adventures he had wrongfully attacked. He awoke from a drunken state in a mining enslavement, and fled again though this time a familiar scent on his nose. He waited for the party in Mellorian, where he was reunited with the group of travelers and the one he killed: Darella Darkeyes, to whom he devoted his servitude.
