Alsorin, expatriated imperial elf

Alosrin was not noble born but his family line had a lot of celebrated naval heroes in it and almost all the men and women of his family lived a life at sea and was even born on a ship.   Alsorin was a shame on his noble family in that despite his watery physical traits he got sea sick, unusually easy. It turned out he was a good fisherman...from the docks. But eventually found life in his small tropical island home more than a little stifling. He moved to a major port city and worked odd jobs there though even then he felt out of place among all the sea faring folk. He always thought he got along better with humans than his fellow grey elves and wondered why he kept staying where he was.   Eventually his aptitude for dueling caught the wrong sort of attention and a criminal cartel tried to recruit him and didn't take no for an answer. He decided to leave the Elven Empire and took a long sea voyage north. It was painful and uncomfortable but once he was again on solid ground, he turned his back to the sea and kept walking.  
Eventually he settled in the Border Baronies where the casual atmosphere and ample opportunities for fresh water fishing suited him in between taking enough mercenary jobs (after screening the morals of the person hiring them).
