Vel Ath, the Forlorn

“Glory and Glow eh? As iiif. If you can't change things when they start, you can't change them when they're dooone.” Vel Ath, in a drunken stupor.
  Vel Ath is a severely burnt, one-handed Archdemon who fell from grace after he failed to defend Oveny Fortress.   As the talented son of Demon Lord Vel Grao Truthfinder, Ath was destined to become a great general, earning the jealousy of other clans in the process.   In recent conflicts with the rising Fortern Kingdom, the loss of his arm and most of his friends have depressed him. He is now the owner and the bartender at a popular tavern in Tal Shoth's lower district.
