The Tribulations of Bai'Shahoi
Grew up in a human settlement with the typical distrust and apprehension from the town folk. Living with his human mother and never knowing his elven father Revan found much comfort in the surrounding wilderness. His friends weren’t other children but rather those creatures of the forest. Games of cat & mouse would occupy most of his time at his early age. The companionship with the forest and its inhabitants developed to the point of Revan attempting to physical touch and mark each bear within a 5 mile radius by the age of 15. Revan found the bear packs to be the most enjoyable to spend time with and aided a few dens from time to time from being disturbed by human intervention.
Once Revan saw the group of adventures interacting and making a difference he knew he could do that as well. Beyond just the bear dens in his backyard but for the forest as a whole gave Revan the courage to say farewell to his mother and head off in search of trouble within the Wood.
