No'lan Fintail

No'lan Fintail (a.k.a. Grampy)

Your Grampy Fangfin was one of the most generous, stubborn, and loving people I have ever known. We named you after him, because I know you will grow up to be even more amazing.   I know you're frustrated right now, but that doesn't mean you should stop trying. Things didn't always go well for your Grampy either, but that never stopped him either. If you really want to do something, it's worth trying again! And again, and again, and again if you have to.   All I'm trying to say is... I'm here for you. And I believe in you. If this is something you want... I know you can do. You have your Grampy's strength, and your father's cleverness, and my love. You can do anything.

Mental characteristics

Employment

No'lan Fintail worked as a Portal Guide for the Exchange for most of his life. He especially enjoyed asking travelers about their hometowns and quickly befriended most of the regulars, both clients and Guides.   This is actually where he met Fur'stav Skyroot, and subsequently how A'drol and Tianna met.

Personality Characteristics

Motivation

Family was of the utmost importance to No'lan, especially when it came to his wife Nia'la and daughter Tianna. Nothing could ever make No'lan happier than the smiles and joys of his family. His deepest desire was to give his wife and daughter a good life, and provide his daughter with the tools to build an even better life for herself.

Virtues & Personality perks

A kind, empathetic, and generous individual, No'lan was well loved by all who knew him. He worked hard as a Portal Guide to make ends meet, frequently bringing home surprise gifts from far away lands procured from travelers and merchants at the Exchange.

Vices & Personality flaws

No'lan always put his family first, even at the expense of his own needs. Tianna sometimes wonders if this was a factor in the health issues that eventually led to his death, and if there was more she should have done to care for him.

Social

Hobbies & Pets

No'lan cared for several portal horses throughout his life for his work at the exchange. Before his death he was finally able to trade for a horse of his own, Kay'la, a loyal but short-tempered mare rejected by her original breeder due to her snappish tendencies when startled. He doted on that mare until his death, treating her as family. The elderly mare is now cared for by Nai'a Skyroot.

History

Lia'na once had her own dreams of greatness and the wondrous achievements she would bring to the world. Then she met No'lan, an unassuming young Dracoling who actively encouraged her to achieve those dreams. Yet the more she tried the more she found herself distracted by daydreams of settling down with him and starting a family.   She eventually decided that raising a family with No'lan was her true dream, and requested he marry her. He was thrilled, and devoted the rest of his days to her and eventually their daughter Tianna until his death.   Lia'na misses him terribly.

History

No'lan Fangfin took a distinct liking to A'drol soon after A'drol began his courtship of No'lan's daughter Tianna. His daughter's happiness was very important to No'lan, and he could see how much the young Dracoling adored and cherished her. Before his death No'lan gave A'drol his blessing to become his future son-in-law, if Tianna wished, although he did also threaten to master Necromancy from beyond the grave if A'drol ever hurt her.

Wealth & Financial state

No'lan worked hard but never amassed much in the way of physical wealth. He was the embodiment of Rol'nara hospitality and generosity, gifting the fruits of his labors to his family and neighbors. As a result he and his family were poor by monetary standards but quite wealthy by Rol'nara beliefs, as No'lan was considered a pillar of the community and beloved by all who interacted with him.
