Emrid, older brother to Morael (Little_lulah#6528 arch vigilant of Fenn), grew up in the small huts outside of Fenn under the supervision of foster parents, whom he helped manage the fields. The two grew up happily and without worry, following the teachings of wyvrun under their devout carers and working happily in the cities farms. However, after their foster parents passed of old age, having been a rather elderly couple, they left everything to their children. Emrid took over the fields and Morael left to become a priestess of Wyvrun, effectively separating the two siblings.
Emrid, for a short while, felt suffocated by his ties to the farm. He had wanted to become a knight and serve the people, fulfilling the heroic dreams of his childhood. However, Just as he was about to throw away his childhood home for good, he met a dashing young snow elf whom he fell deeply in love with. She was pretty and timid, but loved to make him coats and socks to keep him warm while he worked. They weren't rich, but they were happy.
After their eventual marriage, they finally fell with child, and the community rejoiced at the joy of such a rarity. They counted the months gleefully, ecstatic at the awaited arrival. Alas, not all good things last, and the child came still borne and Emrid's wife perished soon after, feverous from the strain of a difficult birth.
Emrid thus spent his days toiling alone in the fields, using his physical abilities and mental hardening to singlehandedly tend to the farm and its many responsibilities. He felt little, wallowing in the immense loss of what could have been. He ate, worked and slept in an endless cycle of gloom.
Although, this time would soon come to an end, as after hearing of his sister's sudden promotion to Arch Vigilant he decided to move to the city in order to support his sister and the Princedom. It had been a long time since the two had seen each other, and both had long lost the bright eyes and soft glow of childhood. Though after a long talk and a few drinks, it was as though nothing had changed, and the two returned to their happy days, if even for a moment.
