Trees of Prophecy
Drake Aelarin is the Captain of the Guard that potects the miners of Thors Point from the horrors of the deep caves. As the miners work deep in the mines, he rushes to their aid if anything was ever unleashed as a cause of their mining. Drake is a Half-Elf in his 50’s and is a prominent member of Thors Point citizens. He is easily recognized within the town as the only member of the guard that carries two large swords at his side. He is also recognized by having the Captain’s Seal engraved on his heavily worn armor.
Drake moved to Thors Point 24 years ago, at the request of Queen Isolde. He was a young warrior ( 26 at the time) that showed promise in the ranks of the Queens army. Shortly after the opening of the mines 25 years ago there was a terrible massacre,The Black Hills Massacre, of miners caused by an unspeakable horror that was released in the mine. Not wanting to risk the closing of her mine, the Queen issued for one of her high ranking captains to take a team to Thors Point, kill the beast, and further protect the miners from such future incidents. Not wanting to risk their own lives for such a small town, the captains chosen to go sent the less experienced, more expendable warriors to do the task, Drake included. Out of the five sent to Thor’s Point, only two survived and finally killed the beast in the mines, Drake Aelarin and Samael Blackthorn (Now known as Lord Samael).
Pleased with the result in Thors Point, Queen Isolde elevated Drake to Captain and she asked him to stay in Thors Point and maintain the peace. Drake agreed to this because during his time in Thors Point, he grew attached to life in a small town, grew attached to the people, and grew attached to Isabel Moonbow ( a local girl). Drake married Isabel, had two sons (Zachariah and Xander Drake ) and Drake still remains in Thors Point to this day as Captain of the Guard.
