Bio:

linnaeus is a strange fellow; whether due to his lineage or unusual upbringing, who is to say. he is seldom seen without his familiar, a hare named lepus, and his prized possession, a cap. the cap, (upon his insistence) is a powerful artifact. all his spells seem to originate from within this “artifact”. frequently he will reach deep inside the cap, his entire arm disappearing in the process, and pull from its innards: beasts, energy rays, hares, minerals, vegetables, and other terrible things.

at a very young age (twenty-four) linnaeus was apprenticed to a sage of the Knodian School. he spent his adolescence at the librarium amassing knowledge and causing mischief (an unfortunate combination). now fifty, though still juvenile by the standards of his race1, linnaeus is still treated as an apprentice by the sages.

one day while linnaeus was studying, a messenger from the Council of Elders was sent to his master to fetch a sage of the school for aid. his master, chafed by the request, sent linnaeus in his place. linnaeus was given a tome to assist him in paying the part and sent to the Atrium. the Atrium was empty and there was a obvious commotion in the city centered around the gate. linnaeus found the Council of Elders on the wall. there was an army outside the city.

child hood event:
linnaeus’ mother was the daughter of a noble military lord. his father was a elf who who disappeared before his memory. talking about his father was taboo as such conversation made his mother’s suitor uncomfortable. in fact linnaeus’ existence seemed to make the man uncomfortable; so it was very convenient when linnaeus was kidnapped from his bed, and sold to a traveling merchant.
apprenticeship event:
he has developed a taste for the unusual.

1 as a half elf linnaeus ages at one third the rate of a full human.
