Devon was born and raised in Arangoth pre-Transdarianian era, only child to a farming family of fairly simple means. As he grew up, he had high moral character, doing right even if it made people unhappy, because it was the right thing to do. When he was still young, he stumbled upon a dragon egg that had been taken by poachers, but had somehow fallen free. Taking it home and hiding it in the barn, he made sure to keep it warm with blankets and the glowing embers of a fire he tended to constantly. A cold winter's night found him curled up under a blanket, when the egg finally hatched. The baby dragon had beautiful silver scales that, when she turned just so, caused the light to reflect and dance along the barn walls and ceiling. A bond was formed almost immediately, and the two were absolutely inseparable. Her true name, Solzztraxzyss, would be impossible for him to pronounce, but he wouldn't need to pronounce it anyway. He uses variations of a shortened version when he does speak of her, however.

Years later, Devon and the dragon became the leaders of a small group of dragon riders that would help what was then the Royal Guard on occasion. But eventually, the group grew apart as they sometimes do, and went their separate ways. Devon stayed in Arangoth, and for a time he and his dragon minded the farm that was now his after his parents passed. During this time, he had come across a striking half-elven woman who he became fast friends with, and then more. It was during a year's long courtship he discovered that he and his soon-to-be wife shared a strong telepathic bond, similar to what he shares with his dragon.

Character Background

Devon was born and raised in Arangoth pre-Transdarianian era, only child to a farming family of fairly simple means. As he grew up, he had high moral character, doing right even if it made people unhappy, because it was the right thing to do. When he was still young, he stumbled upon a dragon egg that had been taken by poachers, but had somehow fallen free. Taking it home and hiding it in the barn, he made sure to keep it warm with blankets and the glowing embers of a fire he tended to constantly. A cold winter's night found him curled up under a blanket, when the egg finally hatched. The baby dragon had beautiful silver scales that, when she turned just so, caused the light to reflect and dance along the barn walls and ceiling. A bond was formed almost immediately, and the two were absolutely inseparable. Her true name, Solzztraxzyss, would be impossible for him to pronounce, but he wouldn't need to, due to the bond they share. He uses variations of a shortened version when he does speak of her, however.

When they were older, he found more purpose by leading a small group of dragonriders like him, who would occasionally lend their aid to the then-Royal Guard. After a few years, the group disbanded, going their separate ways, and Devon and Solzztraxzyss returned to his childhood home, taking on the upkeep of the farm after his parents passed. During this time he met a half-elven woman, Solstice Adelind, with whom he became quite enamored with. They quickly became close friends, and with no small amount of help from his dragon putting them in situations where they could get closer, they eventually became more. After they were married, they stayed on the farm for a time, but Devon always felt there was something missing. Both Solstice and Solzztraxzyss urged him to go back to Drache, that maybe his true calling could be found there. Still, it was a few years before he did just that.

Finding that Drache's now-Civic Guard had an Aerial Defense Corp, he felt it was the right place to be. While he kept the farm, he has hired a few hands for its upkeep. Devon and Solstice have a nice cozy little home in the city, while the dragon spends most of her off-duty hours at the eyrie being pampered by the handlers.
