I am Kalik Kaliso, brother to Kin Kaliso. I was raised by an Eldarin named Kelista. However, before you could understand my story. Long ago, during the age of Drow chaos, then Lolth seemed to abandon the Drows, one of my ancestors, a young leader named Korous, decided to gather a group of Drow convinces some of the Drow families to leave the under dark, to try and find a better life. They secretly met to plan there exodus, but one of the Drow in their group, was found and tempted with treasure and an extremely high ranking in Drow society. Sadly, he excepted, but most of us were able to leave the Underdark before they came to destroy us before we left. However, some of the Drow who had also planned to leave, had been trapped in there, including Kourous, and who's fates still remain a mystery to us.
However, many years have passed. The Drow who were able to leave the under dark formed a small village, growing it with from the ground with there own hands. They happily lived there, not needing to scrounge around like the did in the under dark, feeling free for the first time in ages. We selected a group of seven Drow to Govern the small settlement, and uphold the order of things, and the even formed a small militia in case someone were to invade us our of fear, greed, or some other reason. The happily began to worship Correllon, turning there backs to Lolths teachings and treachery, I grew up with this, and took these teaching seriously, hatting Lolth for seeming to seal us up for so long, my brother taking a more pleasurable look on life, singing and dancing most of the day. However, this happiness would not last long.
Even though these new surface Drow were "free" from Lolth, the Drow from the Underdark did not like them leaving. Though we were living near a town called Luskan, which was to far from the settlement to send out a large invasion force, so they instead the planned to execute a raid on the new Drow settlement. A small force attacked at night, disquisition themselves as humans, and killing many members of the village, including most of the militia and some of the Council, my mother and father also victim to the seemingly reasonless massacre. The Drow's from this settlement were outraged, but could do nothing about it, and openly blamed the humans for doing this to them out of fear and anger, for no reason. Though the humans denied this clam, no human settlement would trade with them, and during the winter months of that first argument, our village was almost destroyed.
As time passed, things were not looking good for this new village, trade was bad, there were tensions between the other non Drow villages nearby, and we were helpless to do anything about it. However, one day an Eladrin named Kelista, who had been away from the land for travel and training, came back and had found out about the new "Drow Village." She had just returned to the region, to hears of the attack on the Drow city, who supposedly did not follow Lolth, but Correllon. She found two Drowish kids, me and my brother, who had been killed during these raids, and instead of seeing us as an evil, she saw us a helpless children, and decided to take sympathy on us and adopts us, as if were we her own children, taking us under our wing and raising us, though my brother did not focus on our practices and usually played while I studied.
After she heard about these "raids" on this village from humans from a nearby settlement she decided to investigate these occurrences for herself, and during her investigations, she found evidence that the attack was done by the Drow, not humans. Soon after Kelista had collected enough evidence to convinced the Drow and the Humans to believe her story, and trade soon flourished in the town again, though trust was not easily forged, and it was still very brittle. One day, when I was still in my studies, my brother had decided to travel around the town and talk to the traders that had started to come, which they usually never came here in the first place. Out of his curiosity, he had heard rumors spread of a few local criminals, which had currently had a bounty on them. Being short on money, as we were being raised by one mother, we decided to go out and try to clam their bounty to get some extra gold. After a brief scuffle, the two have managed to capture a local criminal. When we took him to the town, their skin intimidates the entire human village, especially since we had a bound man in town. When the village discovers that we had not come to attack them, but had actually brought in the wanted criminal, the town pays us generously, giving us the full bounty on the mans head.
Soon after the first bounty, I and my brother had decided to become bounty hunters and take advantage of this. On breaks from my studies, we would go out and find some small fry criminals with bounties on there heads to gain a few extra coin between days. Not only was it a great life style, giving use some coin, and making use less feared by the population of the other towns, but it gave us something to do, and quite frankly, we found it fun. After my studies with our mother was complete, I was to set out to train on my own, and my brother had joined me, seeing as we were a team and we were both bounty hunters. We set of to Luskan to become become better bounty hunters, so we may get better coin out of it. We also left to find the Drow who had originally sent a raid out on our village, and clam justice on them for taking our blood mother and father from us.
