Aesdale Essen

Elf, Mage

Aesdale Essen When asked about his past, Aesdale Essen proudly tells you he the youngest son of the merchant house Essen in Waterdeep. Aesdale was raised with the finest tutoring in magic, politics, and diplomacy. He is less aloof than most Moon Elves and comfortable of other races and beliefs. His natural affinity for manipulative magic was honed to perfection. This skill makes him a very suitable negotiator.

Aesdale was sent with a small group to investigate why some merchants have recently stopped trade with his family. Betrayed by a mercenary hired to protect him, Aesdale was subdued and when he regained consciousness he found himself chained in a small, dark, oppressively cramped area on a ship. Aesdale has joined your group with cheerful enthusiasm. He is grateful to <charname>.
