Chronicles of Khaldun: Crux of Eternity
Noted Bard and Bosabrieln's Mentor
Elf. Bard. Iconoclast.
Vianibrar is both Nainimdul’s greatest resident and greatest shame. He is the most famous resident of Nainimdul, but openly flaunts their traditions — and likely only thrives because he is both powerful and respected.
Vianibrar has been active for quite some time, long enough to have raised Bosabrieln since puberty, long enough to have known Headmaster Ebenezer Jepson back when he was a young adventurer, long enough to be a living legend.
Vianibrar has plenty of secrets, certainly — Bosabrieln’s father alluded to such on his last visit — but he takes care of his own. He always seems to be available when Bosabrieln needs him.
Like the old proverb says, “When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.”
Given that the Shields subsequently defeated Kiaransalee at the Battle of Maldev, Vianibrar’s soul is presumably now free to return to wherever souls go after death…
