Mastery of Elements Aifos can alter an arcane spell when cast so that it utilizes a different element from the one it normally uses. This ability can only alter a spell with the acid, cold, fire, electricity, or sonic descriptor. The spell’s casting time is unaffected. The caster decides whether to alter the spell’s energy type and chooses the new energy type when he begins casting.

Bio:

Aifos is tall for a half-elf standing just one inch short of six-feet tall. His head and face are devoid of hair. He has striking golden-hazel eyes. His complexion is a deep golden tan. His traveling clothes are leather tanned the same color as his skin. In court he wears garments of the period in a scheme of golds, browns and black either in the style of a wizard or a courtier.

Aifos was born the last day of Undecitina in the twentieth year after Tetrasol became unpredictable. Aifos’ mother was a gold half-dragon elf sorceress and his father was a human bard. He still has dreams about an elven woman dancing with dragons.

Aifos was found in a ruin under a dragon where Tesalurk Castle now stands. Aifos was raised by the famous dragonslayer and king, Tesaylidal. He celebrates his birthday on the anniversary of his rescue, which was eighteen years ago. His actual birthday is the day after he was rescued and he is actually 22 years old.

Aifos “studies” magic because King Tesaylidal claims sorcery is dragon magic and dragons must be “wiped from the face of Almebezbik.”

King Tesaylidal made sure Aifos’ real father had a proper burial with a tomb in the catacombs of the castle. King Tesaylidal told Aifos that the dragons that killed his father must have eaten his mother as she was not found and thus has no tomb in the catacombs.

King Tesaylidal is aware of Aifos’ ability to detect deception and kept him in court as much as possible. However, King Tesaylidal eventually sent Aifos out into the world as an escort for Terrishaw Perinil on her quest to rescue her kidnapped sister. In those travels, he has been swept from The Mirror and deposited upon Waagerecht Umdreher, another planet in the Saasm Space Crystal Sphere.

Also during these travels, he has discovered that he is a Traveler with alter-egos throughout the multiverse. During an encounter with the Creators, an elemental race of whales, he was transported—in spirit—to 21st century Earth. There, he shared the mind of Lou Hunter, an agent in the service of the New York City Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. He acquired Ran’s Gift, learned about his past, helped slay a demon and returned to Waagerecht Umdreher presumably to fulfill a prophecy by delivering the sword Arkturious to a corrupt elven kingdom to restore it to its proper state.

Other Traveler experiences occurred while scrying the future of the new queen of The Enclave and while rescuing the Starmages of Celestial Star.
  • Barone is a 12th century Earth priest guarding a Holy Grail and using it to keep demons from entering his world. Aifos acquired the Grail for the purpose of destroying a vampire plaguing a local village.
  • Tremaine was a 10th century Earth vampire dwelling in the 1980s that assisted Aifos in ridding a local village of another vampire who happened to be Tremaine’s brother Kian. In the process of saving his brother, Tremaine regained his humanity and is no longer one of the Undead.

While returning to the elven kingdom, it appeared to be destroyed in a cataclysmic explosion which altered many talismans in his possession. With the quest to restore the elven kingdoms apparently terminated, Terrishaw and he returned to their own planet using a greater teleport spell stored on a ring to find that her sister had hatched and bonded with a dragonkin halfling named Teren.
