Daethor was born the first and only child of Theleas, the half-elven bard famed throughout the peninsula. From a young age he was fascinated by the tales spun masterfully by the skilled orator, and he enjoyed the odd occasions when as a very young boy he had been able to accompany his father to a local or foreign court. Theleas’s skill had gained him access to this elite level of society, and his charisma made him a sought-after retainer.
Rumor has it however, that he was employed by lords for more than his honeyed-tongue and dazzling wit. Underneath the veneer of amazing storyteller and skilled musician, Theleas was further a master of some of the more perfidious arts of political intrigue. While he served as an able diplomat and ambassador on several occasions, he was in fact an expert spy as well. On numerous occasions he provided his lords with information that allowed them to cement power at the expense of their rivals. Over the course of the years, his lords had the seeming tendency of extremely good political and legal luck. This tendency did not go unnoticed, and before long he had made powerful enemies of the politically astute.
The shrewd Theleas however, was aware of the risks involved in his work, and made sure that his Ledia and son Daethor were kept secret and removed from society. After the tender age of 8, Daethor and Ledia were swept from their city manor to live in a coastal community. When Daethor was 13, Theleas did not return home after a week-long journey. Ledia, acting according to a previously-arranged contingency, fled by ship along the coast to a remote Temple of Bragi, Our Lady of Winter in Hunderith. Ledia left after a few months, never to return, and so Daethor was raised by the acolytes.
It was fitting that he became so devoted to the Lady of Winter, for she alone could promise him retribution (work in progress)...
