Tales of Aelyndia
Aldis Pendor was a human warrior and a vital member of the legendary party known as the Six which aided The Guardians during The Shadow War. Pendor’s party was responsible for the defeat of the powerful madman known as Xarax near the end of these conflicts. The warrior was entrusted with the protection of an obsidian box, an artifact bearing a stone imbued with the power of the Guardians, responsible for sealing Alashar within The Void Between Worlds.
When the Six disbanded following the end of the Shadow War, the hero returned to Pendor Keep, his family home located within the forest north of Dunnel, where he remained for many years. Eventually, for reasons unknown, Pendor became convinced that his reputation and profile would make protection of the relic entrusted to him difficult for his descendants, despite the fact that its existence was supposed to be a deep secret. Pendor urged his daughter, Lydia Pendor (later Clearwater), to leave the forest keep behind forever and take up a simple life within Dunnel. Shortly after entrusting the family secret to his daughter’s safekeeping, Aldis Pendor disappeared forever. Many residents of Dunnel believe the forest surrounding the isolated Pendor Keep to be haunted.
