Birthed to wood elves in the southern forest of Rostlands Vasheil was trained from an early age to a ranger. He took to the training poorly much to the dismay of a his his proud father of an ancient elven bloodline known for their warriors, Malerio Le’te’lin. Although he grew to love and appreciate nature, he was more interested in a simpler life. When he became of age he traveled the world for almost 100 years, spending years with fishermen, sailors, midwifes, and scholars alike learning what he could of anything he could. When he finally found himself near home again, he came upon a small monastery, it’s courtyard dominated by a huge white tree. The tree was supernatural, and a studied extensively by the arcane students there, and some said where they drew your magic from in the first place. Vasheil spent years there and found he had a special kinship to the tree and to the magic. When the order of mages found him ready they carved him a staff from the tree and since then it’s been a medium through which Vasheil has wielded his power.
