Male Medium Natural Humanoid, age 27, height 6’2”, weight 147lb

Born in the Marching Mountains of Calimshan during the month of Tarsakh in 1454DR, the Year of the Emerald Sun.

A tall and slender human with dusky skin, narrow brown eyes and neatly cropped black hair, his furrowed brow and clean shaven, weather-beaten features generally bear a wary or sardonic expression. He wears plain calf length desert robes with long sleeves and tight collar, woven in Eladrin style of mottled grey and brown cloth. A burnous of the same material covers his head and neck, held in place by a slender silver circlet. His worn leather boots are tied with glittering woollen laces, and ornately embroidered snug chamois gloves cover his hands. He carries a smooth 5’ quarterstaff of polished mahogany with an almost metallic sheen, shod with bands of silvered steel and capped with a large jagged shard of orange crystal. From his broad leather belt hang an ornate dagger in a finely tooled sheath, a belt pouch and a plain brass lamp.

Duban’s parents were slaves, toiling in the mines of the Marching Mountains to quarry rock for the city of Memnon. They were among a group rescued by a small band of Janessar freedom fighters in 1452DR, and while most of their companions fled to Almraiven or the Calimshite diaspora they stayed to join the struggle against their former oppressors.

Duban was born a couple of years later and raised among the Janessar, teaching him to be tough, alert and self-reliant. His magical abilities first began to manifest at the age of seven, while he was attempting to light a damp campfire early one morning. Janessar contacts soon found him a tutor in the city of Almraiven, where he spent the next dozen years developing his arcane talents under her strict tutelage. He planned to rejoin his parents and their comrades in the mountains once his studies were complete, but on going to visit their camp for the occasion of his nineteenth birthday he found the site devastated, everyone there slaughtered by blade or elemental power.

Returning to Almraiven, he swore vengeance on the Skyfire Emirates at the temple of Shevarash and threw himself into his studies with renewed determination. He hopes that through mastery of planar summoning and ritual casting he will one day discover a way to banish the djinni and efreeti of the Skyfire Emirates back to the Elemental Chaos from which they came, and in doing so help free the whole of Calimshan from their oppression. To this end he left Almraiven at the age of 23 to wander the length and breadth of Faerun to hone his skills, seek out arcane knowledge and artifacts, and make contacts and alliances which may one day be called to his homeland’s aid…
