Old campaigner. Knew the imperialists when they were still called rebels. While Ely was, and some say still is, an excellent ranger, he expressly removed himself from political battles. Only in a few instances is his name mentioned in the history books, bravely fending off attacks from old elven villages with his companions.
A stolid elderly face in Raven’s Roost, Ely runs the general store, and will grittily enumerate the flaws of the current generation with some prompting. A fine sword is mounted above the counter, emblazoned with Ely’s elvish characters. He believes that the day he cannot fend off a thief after his weapon is the day he is no longer a ranger.
