Giridharan Kalravani

The Werewolf Prince

Prince of Bhalrooz Giridharan Kalravani

Giridharan Kalravani is a noble werewolf prince from the Akarren kingdom of Bhalrooz. In Illivan, he led the Werewolves of Kalravani, marshaling a well-organized clandestine conspiracy and helping to manage a secret railroad of tunnels under the city to harbor werewolves traveling north to answer Tunak's Call.   Giridharan is blessed with "Tunak's Gift," what he believed to be the divine right to hunt whatever (and whomever) he chooses and the source of his lycanthropy. He is also much more acutely in control of his lycanthropy than most werewolves, seemingly able to take his forms at will.   Wanted for murder in Illivan, Giridharan was seemingly killed by Ambrose François using a dark spell leaving behind a silvery wolf's head medallion and a pile of ash. However, the curse of Ogorian's evil magic instead trapped Giridharan in the Dreamlands (Oban).   With the help of the Elves of Soala'Sar and Chrysanthemum Ostander , Giridharan was freed coincidentally from the Dreamlands and brought back to the waking world, alive and well, during an effort to rid Ambrose of Ogorian's thrall. Kept away from others by the Elves, Giridharan was forced unto tutelage in Soala'Sar for a number of months until he agreed the same Trials that Ambrose and the others faced. The results of said trial altered Giridharan's world view in such a way that he renounced his past and vowed the Oaths of the Weané'Elle .   After completing the year-and-a-day in accordance to Elven tradition, Giridharan was considered a fully realized Paladin of Tunak. Under the guidance of Soala'Sar, Giridharan was sent to rendezvous with the Lantern trio in Rosara, but was quickly redirected to Roue D'or. There he reunited with the Lantern Bearers and agreed to accompany them wherever they may go. To his surprise and intrigue, their first destination would be Lun'Dun, the plane of demons.
