HistoryThoril Songsteal, human ranger Scout, is one of the founding members of group one. He has been on hand for all of the group’s adventures, and is part of the reason of the current state of things. Initially, Thoril was a steadfast member of group one, rescuing Talia Padraig and stopping a cult of Orcus. However, due to a misunderstanding, Thoril and Trias had to leave Winterhaven and moved to Overdale. It was during a mission to clean out a nest of vampires under the city that Thoril’s life changed forever. While battling the vampires, Thoril was bitten by the vampire lord, starting his transformation to become a vampire himself. Show spoiler
Weeks later, Thoril forwent treatment and became a full-fledged vampire. During this time, he became more sullen and moody and had great bloodlust. During a meeting with the defacto Overdale mayor, Zannon Carter, Thoril’s bloodlust took control and he lunged towards Carter after Carter accidentally pricked his finger and started bleeding. Carter saw this as an attempt on his life and banished the group from Overdale and branded them outlaws, sending the group back to Winterhaven. During their return to the town, Thoril was reunited with Talia Padraig, with whom he had a one-night stand. After the treaty was signed, the group ventured forth to Drock's Tomb, where they encountered the great warrior himself. During the battle, Drock unleashed the Orb of Light, blasting the party with powerful holy energy. This energy, instead of killing Thoril, cleansed him of his vampirism and returned him fully to human form. After killing Drock, the group returned south, only to find that seventeen years had passed. The group journeyed to Winterhaven and learned what had transpired in the time lapse, but also met Nathaniel,Talia and Ian's son, though it is implied that he may be Thoril’s instead. The group’s journey led them to the small town of Aubrey. In order to get the clerics on their side, the group was tasked to eliminate a nest of vampires. Once the party found the vampire lair, a long battle and a longer argument about killing or recruiting them ensued. Eventually, the main vampire, Edward, was killed by Thoril. With the vampire issue dealt with, the clerics of Aubrey joined their cause and the group set their sights on Durnhollow. When they arrived in the small one road town, the party was met with racism and slurs from everyone but the sheriff Ellis Arroway and the working girls in the Honest Harlot. Shortly after, a fight erupted with some locals who attempted to hang Rodswell from the rafters. The fight went poorly for the thugs as Briahna arrived in town and was deputized along with Malchus to sort it out while Drakonis, now Bloodrooted out of his mind let loose a fireball in the wooden building. Thoril, for his part, spent the entirety of the town visit with a prostitute named Eva and escaped the debacle without a scratch, or so he thought. The thugs were defeated, the towns source of income in flames and a shopkeeper robbed, putting the group back on the road. Thoril continued with the group, traveling to Donhurst, Stonesunder, Or'Rash and Uman' Yiro. They returned to Winterhaven and summoned the army, where they began to mount an offensive against the Overwatch. The battle seemed to be going poorly when Thoril noticed the Dragonborn leader about to blow a horn to call in the red dragon Straad. He weighed their options and in a decision that would resonate for years to come, gave Karrik "the nod" approving of the summoning. Straad responded and laid waste to the forest, the city and the gathered armies without care for which side was which. The Elves and their leader, Brettana Moonshadow took great offense to the forest being burned above all. Karrik was executed and Thoril nearly talked his way into survival when Ironhide, now in a half-Orc body rode in. He blamed Thoril for the state of things and plunged his sword through Thoril's back, killing him instantly. Arc 2
It is revealed that Thoril's remains were gathered from the forest where he was killed and laid to rest in a place of honor near Cal Cas, the Elven tree in the Evergreen. It also appears that Thoril's lineage may live on as well, as Eva appeared near the end of Arc 1 with a baby bump that may be the result of her time spent with the mighty ranger.
