The Orphans of Waterdeep
Elren was discovered by the orphans and then sheltered by them for a long period of time in a makeshift urban garden/hideout they used. With a quiet, contemplative temperament he was content to improve upon their habitations and listen to the adventurous stories his friends relayed without participating in them. He is a few years older than The Orphans (Pan, Kevros etc.). He is exceedingly skilled at carpentry.
