Vetinari, born of a human mother and an Elven father, knew neither of his parents. The story he has been able to piece together is that his mother, an exceptional beauty in her home land, strayed from her human husband and lay with a Siellenim Elf – a very rare occurance. Her husband, being none the wiser of her deceit believed the child to be his own, until the day of his birth. Clearly the child was of Elven stock which sent her husband into a rage, upon which he throttled his wife. The midwife, fearing the child would be next, absconded to the lands of Merondor where she believed the Mianthim would be sensitive to the childs needs. It was here the child Vetinari, or Leoendithas to his elven brethren, was raised and learnt his ways – his love of nature, his kinship with animals, his ability with magic and healing and his love of whittling. Though accepted by the Mianthim, Vetinari was always seen as somewhat of a loner, with a dark cloud partially hidden behind his eyes. Those close to him would say he is a serious, intelligent man with a bluff exterior covering a kind heart. The loss of his mother, and the abandonment by his father, weighed heavily on him and vengeance for his mothers death was never far from his mind. It was this vengeance that had driven him to the Order of the Lantern – to seek his mothers murderer – as his investigations into her past led him here. He would continue his search, patient, but ever vigilent.
