Lloyd the Elder
Born 229. Studied under the Archmage at the University of Genera, 247-54. Married a classmate in 252; their daughter and only child was born one year later. After graduation, Lloyd and his family moved to the Giant Province, where his father-in-law governed a mercantile settlement. Lloyd's wife and daughter were killed when the settlement was raided by orcs, 269. Afterwards, Lloyd resumed his magical studies (becoming proficient in the use of magic missile and not much else), became an alcoholic, and avenged his family's death by massacring several orc strongholds in 279. In 282, he was named a Master Wizard and inducted into the Esoteric Order of the Silver Swan, an old boys' club in the Imperial City. From 283 until he met Brekhan Spiritforged and began adventuring in 298, Lloyd served with the Generic Archmage as an ambassador to the Western Giants.
