Bio:

Fflewddur Fflam is considered to be one of the greatest storytellers to have ever existed. The trouble is, no one knows just what he looks like…

The truth is, Fflewddur Fflam never performs himself- usually utilizing illusions to tell his stories. Often, he employs more than a new look to captivate an audience: he uses different names. Maestro Fflam is actually several of the world’s greatest storytellers- as virtuossos such as Shelly Mary, Jordan Roberts, Alexander Lloyd, Toll Keen, and others are simply illusions crafted by the master manipulator.

These tactics may be necessary to keep him a step ahead of the empire. As a bard, Fflewddur Fflam possesses great bardic lore and knows the history of Angor well- so well, that he often spins hints of man’s former glory in his tales. He appears to be on a quest to remind humanity of their lost legacy, which is the exact opposite of what the elves are attempting to accomplish.
