Kestryl was an outer attendant to Scyrah’s primary priests. Every day, he heard of her deteriorating condition, and he knew that Scyrah would eventually die. However, hope came to him in a dream. In it, he saw himself walking through a blizzard. As he pushed through the drifts and the biting wind, he saw a point of light in the distance. Kestryl forced himself forward, and the light grew, bringing with it a gentle warmth that took the chill from his bones. In the center of the light was a shining elven face. As Kestryl reached for it, he awoke in the night.

Kestryl consulted Scyrah’s sages about the dream. One of them reluctantly told him that the dream might point to a lost elven god outside of Ios, in a land of ice and snow. So Kestryl broke his vows and left his place at Scyrah’s temple. He exiled himself from Ios in search of answers and salvation for his people.

During his travels, Kestryl met with a gun mage named Giovanna Versalo and journeyed with her for a time. However, they were attacked by trolls on the road, and she was slain. Before the trolls could kill Kestryl, he picked up Giovanna’s gun, poured all of his will into it, and pulled the trigger. The rune-cast bullet that came out tore through the trolls, leaving nothing but charred bone behind. Kestryl buried his friend, then continued on alone. He quests to save Scyrah, but he carries the gun in memory of his Giovanna.

Kestryl believes that the answers he seeks lie somewhere in Khador. He hopes to gain access to the Golden Crucible’s archives and Korsk’s library. He knows of the Dogcatchers, and since they are outsiders who have gained some trust in the city, he thinks that joining their ranks is the swiftest course to achieve his goals.
