The Domina Straits
half-elf sorcerer from across the sea
Kal and his cousin Derick were born in a continent that is unknown to the rest of the occupants of this land. It had discarded the old grudges and petty squabbles and all races lived in a kind of harmony.
The branch of the family that Kal came from prided itself on it’s achievements in the study of magic, and Kal’s particular abilities lead to him making a name for himself among the scholars of his homeland for his discoveries in elemental magics.
However not all was well on the continent. The unusual peace that Kal had grown up in had also caused a huge population expansion, and the overcrowding threatened to bring back war and destruction as families fought for land and food. As a result, a plan was concocted. Four parties of explorers were assembled, each setting off in one of the Cardinal Directions. Their goal was to find land for the populace to colonise, so that the inevitable conflict could be postponed until a more permanent solution could be found.
One of these parties, the party that headed East, included Kal and Derick. He had chosen to come on this mission in the hopes of discovering new magical phenomena to bring back to the colleges in the homeland. However, after several days of sailing the boat was destroyed in a storm and all but Kal and his cousin perished, the two only surviving due to Kal having managed, through blind luck to drag himself and Derick to shore.
Now Kal is stuck, faced with a new land full of possibilities, but without the resources or the support of his people, save for his cousin.
