Early Life

Davyn's early life was a life of turmoil and betrayal. Senwyr, Davyn's father, was desperate and went to work for the black robed wizard, Maddoc at Cairngorn Keep. Senwyr did not like it but had no choice. As the years passed, Davyn was born and Senwyr wanted no part of Maddoc's evil any longer. He decided to flee but was caught by Maddoc. As punishment for his betrayal, Senwyr was magically changed into The Beast and killed his wife,{Giselle}, in a beastly rage.

Maddoc decided that he would have the last laugh and decided to raise Davyn on his own. Davyn grew up thinking that his parents died and Maddoc had saved him. Maddoc tried to teach the boy the art of Magic, yet Davyn had no affinity for it. Davyn grew up loving the outdoors, exploring the grounds of Cairngorn Keep} with his friend, Ayanti. He grew up thinking that his "father" was a decent man and Maddoc sheltered him from his true goal, the resurrection of Asvoria.

Temple of the Dragonslayer

Maddoc set out to frighten a young girl Nearra enough to release Asvoria's spirit. Nearra was faced with goblins and the green dragon, Slean. Slean frightened Nearra enough that she heard whispers of Asvoria in her mind. Maddoc the black wizard appeared dressed in robes of white, with his adopted son Davyn. They cast a "sleeping" spell on the dragon, pretending to have saved Nearra's life and escort her to the small village of Treveska. With subtle manipulations over the young girl with no memory of her past life, Maddoc offered Davyn to escort her to a woman who can bring her memory back.

Davyn followed Maddoc's evil plan but did not count on the plan backfiring. When meeting their "guide", a dark dwarf named Oddvar planted by Maddoc, they instead met up with Elidor, Catriona Goodlund, and Sindri Suncatcher. During the course of these events, these Young Adventurers made a pact to help the young girl get her memories back by traveling towards the Temple of the Holy Order of the Stars, a place where true clerics had returned.

Davyn found himself torn between his adopted wizard father's plans and the feeling of friendship that started to develop, especially Nearra. He started to be the part of Nearra's protector instead of pretending. When Maddoc sent the ogre, Ugo and his Goblins to kidnap Nearra, Davyn jumped in to protect her. Nearra worried about the injured Davyn and it was there that Davyn decided to protect this woman from Maddoc's dark plans.

The Young Adventurers traveled to the Temple of the Holy Order of the Stars. They met true clerics who attempted to bring Nearra's memory back, but couldn't break Maddoc's spell. Nearra was frustrated but Davyn and the others were still dedicated to finding a way for her memory to return. Maddoc's plan was not over as the green dragon Slean was called to attack the temple and scare Nearra into releasing the dark soul she had captive.

Slean attacked the Temple and demanded they give her Nearra. The Young Adventurers stood against Slean but were losing badly. Nearra, with Asvoria's spirit as her guide, found the location of a holy weapon, Elthia's arrow. She snatched the arrow from inside a stone mosaic and stabbed Slean in the tail. With the holy energies surging through the arrow, Slean fell dead. The temple had been saved and Nearra was safe for the moment.

The Clerics of the temple found a scroll that told of powerful wizards that lived in the city-kingdom of Arngrim. They thought this might be the best chance to restore Nearra's memory. But Davyn knew this was just more of Maddoc's manipulations. Nearra was safe but Davyn swore that he would never let Maddoc cause the Emergence to happen. The Young Adventurers left the safety of the temple and started their path northwest to Arngrim.
