Elama was born on 21 Eleint 1342 DR, the Autumn Equinox, in the city of Senaliesse
in the Feywild
. Born to the Liadon family, Elama was immediately destined to become the latest in a long line of Shiere Knights in service of Queen Titania
of the Summer Court
. From a very early age, Elama was trained in various knightly arts such as swordplay, athletics, archery, magic, and courtly intrigue. Her training continued for a century, until at the age of 100 she was finally considered an adult and joined the ranks of the Shiere Knights.
Her first field assignment was fighting the fomorians in the Feydark, a task which she excelled at. She was also particularly good at getting her way in court, using her charms as effectively as her sword. After she was caught one too many times in a bedchamber she wasn't supposed to be in, she was elected to duel a champion of the Gloaming Court
to settle a dispute. Against all odds, she successfully defeated the champion, showing mercy in the process.
In 1468 DR, Elama came across a heavily injured human who had just crossed a fey passage. Elama spent several months healing the man, who was named Ander Stormwind
. The two very quickly fell in love, and Elama got to work convincing the Summer Court to accept a human as a member of their ranks. In early 1470 DR, the two married; later that year, Elama gave birth to a daughter, who she named Sariel
. Although she was famed for her many victories as a knight, Elama was also a target of various nobles she had wronged, and wanted to keep her daughter safe. Ander convinced her to allow Sariel to grow up in a safe orphanage in the Material Plane, at a place Ander trusted.
Despite keeping Sariel
out of the machinations of the Summer Court
, Elama felt regret over being unable to raise her daughter. When she discovered that a noble of the Summer Court
wanted to hide an illegitimate daughter named Enna
, Elama stepped in to adopt the young half-elf
, raising her as her own daughter.
Despite her orphanage burning down and growing up on the streets, Sariel eventually followed a mysterious dagger to the Feywild, where she made her way to Senaliesse and finally reunited with her parents. Like Elama, Sariel pledged herself to Queen Titania, though the young half-elf isn't a knight just yet.
