"I have wandered through forest and wilderness for five years: through Qualinesti west of the Kharolis Mountains, through the Forests of Kith-Kanan, all the way to the sea. I found no trace of healers - not even tales of them - in my travels. Still, the gods of good must exist: their signs are everywhere. The White Stag led me on good paths, the wheeling bird foretold war, and the thunderclouds warned me of danger. These are the handiwork of the good gods. But I found no cleric to the west."

History: Tanis was born to an unknown human father and an elven woman who died in childbirth. He was raised by the Speaker of Suns in Qualinost. After a conflict with his adopted family, he left Qualinesti to try to learn about his human heritage. Thanks to his diplomatic skills, he became a business partner with Flint Fireforge. Gradually a group of adventurers formed around him.
Family: Tanis is the son of the elf woman Elansa and an unknown human brigand. The brigand slew Elansa's husband Kethrenan (the Speaker of the Sons' younger brother) and left Elansa for dead. Tanis was raised as a ward of Solostaran, the Speaker of Suns in Qualinost.
Personality: Tanis works through an inner struggle. Neither human nor elven, he feels out of place in either world. He is a natural leader, though he regrets the burden of leadership. Tanis is always friendly and trusting; none but his closest companions know of his internal turmoil.
