Caelan lived in and around Medvyed, grew up hunting and fishing, pretty much living the simple life. His father is a Warden (ranger) of Medvyed and taught him the ways of the woods.
One night during a terrible storm Caelan was separated from his father and heard a deafing thunder clap and flash. Lighting has struck a tree and felled it to the ground. Upon investigation there was a lesser fey (pixie/sprite/something) trapped underneath and was in danger being both crushed and burned (as the tree had caught fire vigorously) Caelan without hesitation used his great strength to lift the tree clear, and spirited the fey to safety. The fey asked ‘why did you save me?’ Caelan grew thoughtful and said ‘The strong protect the weak, for one day it might be the strong one who is weak and the weak who is strong, the actions of the strong determine their worth to the weak’. ‘Wisely said’ said the fey, ‘We will remember you for that Human’ The fey vanished, and Caelan never saw it again. Later that night Caelan saw a great white stag appear to him and a voice spoke in his mind: ‘You would help that which could not help itself, how far would you go with this conviction?’ Caelan paused and thought again ‘Where ever my foot falls and my eyes see, is where I will help, this land belongs to no one being, it is shared by all’. ‘Then I will have need of you Caelan, walk in my ways and follow’ The white stag lead Caelan though the night till he found the Camp his father had made at which point the stag vanished.
Caelan knew he had seen Erastil that night, and had been a follower of Erastil since the time he could draw a bow. Caelan grew into a fair minded man, who was always willing to put the sword aside and let words have their place first. The sword is always a last resort and should only be used to defend. He would even give creatures such as Goblins a fair shake, allowing them to speak their minds as long as they were willing to put aside their own swords to do so. Sadly this rarely happened, but Caelan still has hope. He truly believes that every creature (even monsters) has a right to the land (as per the teachings of Erastil) and only when one threatens another group should they be dealt with, and only if they are not willing to communicate.
