Alae is a dragonborn barbarian with silvery-blue scales and a long scar across her face.

Background

In the winter of 2939 in a small village in the Free Cities, dragonborn twins hatched with scales of frosty bluish silver. One was named Elytra, and the other, Alae.

An ancient prophecy told of the two silver dragonborn. Many of the details of this prophecy had been lost to time, but one thing was clear: one of the two would die to protect the other from a great evil. In an attempt to protect them both, they were separated from each other soon after their hatching and taken to distant lands.

The Prophecy

Originally, it was believed that there were only two stanzas to the prophecy. Within the lair of the silver dragon Orantis, however, a stone plaque was discovered that bore a longer version, revealing that what was previously thought to be the entirety of the prophecy was merely the first and last stanzas.

As spiders weave, the shadow falls
And dead gods will we mourn
Within the land of cities free
Shall silver twins be born

But through deception and half-truths
Shall they be split in twain
For only through their broken bond
Can the world be safe again

By frost and fist and steel and spells
The one shall find her way
While blood and rage in snowy peaks
Led the other one away

In ancient land they’ll reunite
While the world holds its breath
Their mind and muscle combined to fight
The shadow beyond death

As chaos looms they’ll battle foes
With all that they can give
But one must sacrifice herself
That the other one may live
