Andion Isurand is a tall elf standing three inches over six feet tall, with deep discerning emerald green eyes, light bronze skin and precise handsome features. Lithe and long-limbed, the muscles of his lean and flexible frame are well tuned. His strait platinum blonde hair, marked by a few small white forelocks, is woven into one exceedingly long braid that falls past his knees when not kept within his fedora.
Andion's broad-collared long coat, woven of fine green-gray gossamer thread to be as resilient as leather, ends at the knee. It bears large lapels with leaf-like edges and a line of scrimshaw buttons with soft iridescent olive-drab and pearl hues down each front edge. His wide-brimmed fedora, neck sock half mask, baldrics, tactical vest, shirt, utility belt, breeches, legband pouches and knee high boots are crafted from much the same materials and colors as to match his long coat, varying in their thicknesses and alchemical treatments.
The lower portions of his neck sock half mask travel smoothly under the edge of his vest. His vest and belt bear many utility pockets held closed by short lengths of scrimshaw. The sleeves of the shirt worn under his vest end just above his elbows. A pair of smooth and supple black dragonscale bracers are tied firmly about his forearms, extending just past the elbows and protecting the back of his hands. His fingerless gloves are crafted from worn dire shark hide, thus possessing a coarse exterior for exceptional grip. He also wears a simple scrimshaw ring on either hand.
His large scrimshaw belt buckle of iridescent hues bears a unique draconic visage with black pearls for its eyes. Around each thigh he wears two modest legband pouches. His comfort-fit breeches billow slightly above the knee, before tucking into his tall boots. The neck of each boot is made to fold around each leg to where its straps are fastened with scrimshaw buckles along the outside.
Andion primarily exists in an alternate "3.5e
" version of Toril where the goddess Mystra lays dormant in a suspended twilight close to death after nearly being killed by god Cyric in the year 1385 DR. Various lesser deities now preside over the different magic schools or portions of the Weave thereof, thereby sharing stewardship over it in Mystra's stead. The unique powers granted to Mystra's chosen and faithful have greatly diminished. The forces of magic and the world itself are never beset by the Spellplague and its azure flames. In addition, the Feywild and the Plane of Radiance (Dragon Magazine 321
) have existed all along, but have only recently been rediscovered
Andion has long been in the habit of passing along enspelled missive tokens
to his friends and to the allies of his order, Rell'thond'en'i' Vand'orn. The magic laid upon one of these small objects, when properly triggered by the object's possessor, can be expended to send a short mental message of up to twenty five words from the user's mind directly to Andion's own mind, a message capable of crossing from one plane of existence to another.
Andion has also been a long-serving steward and guardian of Uvaeren's hidden library caches, which lay in and around the area occupied by present day Mistledale, between Ashenbenford and the Seventh Sanctum Tavern
). The lore and valuable articles contained within these ancient vaults, are also protected by deathless attendants, golems, traps, magical wards and a small number of baelnorns.
