Fireshaper, jeweler and smithDescription:
Vernyl Fireheart is taller than wolfriders and most elves (because he is son of elder). But height difference is not much as he is fairly very young for a elf (image wise think he is head and half taller than Cutter). But no doubt once he grows few more centuries to his belt he can tower everyone in height like elder did.History:
Vernyl Fireheart comes from among Sun-Folk, but from different tribe than from what Wolfriders befriended with originally. Vernyl is a son of the elder of the village and early life he had discovered he had rare gift; ability to control fire. In old myths elves who had this gift could conjure blazes of fire and manipulate it great extend, as some elves even manifested a manifestation of fire; light. However Vernyl's gift is not that strong but potent in it's own ways. He can increase or reduce heat of any fire source. He can change coloring of fire and he can heat metal just by touching it and he does not get burned easily by fire. So he can shape metal bare handed because his intense heat burns on metal, making it softer to handle and he does not get burn in process. Naturally silver and gold which go very soft by heat was easy for him to shape while steel or harder metals asks more physical power in his part to bend. So he became village's natural expert jeweler because he could heat metal to allow squeeze gem stones into metal and make beautiful jewelry with very organic design and feel to them.
But few times when in extreme emotion he has made accidentally increased other living creatures temperatures, one case make person faint from sudden fever which lasted whole day. Another case he had caused a existing camp fire to erupt in sudden powerful blaze which scorched person near the fire. These two cases has made him focus extensively not loose his temper or go angry and so forth. As he knows the key power to cause destruction with fire is negative powerful emotions and he is sure in extreme case he could perform one the ancient fireshaper weaving which conjure fire from out thin air to cause extreme harm.
Vernyl lived in shadow of his elder mother, admiring her and her wisdom. They lived in oasis with few rocks and rich vegetation around it. They had build houses from clay and from cured leathers from their herd animals and from few trees were used as support beams. But their idyllic life ended when wandering band of troll warparty found oasis and it's occupants and attacked! Many died in attack, including Vernyl's mother who tried reason with trolls but got killed down by arrow in chaos of first confrontation. In rage his village had responded to this act with bloodlust which was not natural way of their people. They caused return casualties with simple tools but only reward was making trolls truly mad and cause more than half villagers killed in the attack. Vernyl and few others were knocked out and brought in as slaves to trolls who lived in blackstone mountain.
In there Vernyl was only male left from his village, rest had been killed in battle. Only reason why he was spared because the warparty captain had seen him melt bare hands steel sword which handle he had gripped during grappling his opponent. They forced him to work in their forges or otherwise women of the village would suffer or be even killed from his defiance far before his turn would come up! With that blackmail Vernyl endured twenty years living in trolls forge as 'heater' as they called him. He made forges embers burn brighter and hotter, allowing faster work with steel, armor and also do jewelry for them. He learned also smithcraft from trolls and he learned use his gift to forge weapons. Years in forge had given him hardy endurance and muscles, but in his back and legs are dozen whip marks from troll slave watchers who whipped him if he happened be slower than usual, even when he was sick or tired he was forced to work.
He saw his village women served as servants, bakers and so on. Also collector of herbs and one had gift with animal speak so she tended beasts of burden trolls had. Then trolls greed backfired on them when they mined suddenly onto bottom of a lake! Causing massive collapse in tunnels and causing large parts of blackstone keep to collapse! Literally wash their occupants out down into canyon into river! Vernyl was among the washed up trolls and debris and he fell down to canyon into river. By some miracle he survived the experience barely alive. He was found by one member of Wolfrider tribe in the river.
