Eldarion Telchontar was one of the eight legendary dragon riders. He was regarded as Haven’s greatest swordsman, and together with the dragon Aeglos, is the subject of many a tale. After defeating Menzo and Fyrus with the other dragon riders, Eldarion assisted Petrin Iceblade with his quests for a few years before travelling into the unexplored reaches of Okknos with Aeglos. Eldarion returned with large amounts of treasure, and a curious, intelligent, talking construct. After taking some time to marry and raise his son, he returned to his exploration, family in tow. His son chose to live the life of a farmer, instead of an adventurer.
The final years of Eldarion’s life were marked by a conflict with the inferno tribe of fire giants. The fighting began 24 years ago when the giants invaded Haven, and culminated with Eldarion defeating the giants’ chieftain at the future spot of Twin Swords Springs. During the fighting, most of the Telchontar family was killed when the giants attacked Eldarion’s son’s farmstead. Neither Eldarion nor the dragon Aeglos has been seen since the end of the war.
