Avier was born in a small settlement. His mark of Sola was recognized, and rumors spread quickly. Word spread to a nearby Dwarven settlement, who then proceeded to steal the newborn in order to gain favor with the Eladrin. Avier spent about 7 years with these Dwarfs, basically a captive, then tried to escape. Needless to say, a 7-year-old doesn’t get too far in the mountains, and he was re-captured… but not before being noticed by an Elven party who happened to be in the area. The elves didn’t appreciate seeing an elfkin being held against his will, so they snuck into the Dwarf camp and stole Avier.
The elves took Avier back to their village, presented him to the council of elders, and then (after the elders saw Avier’s mark) proceeded to imprison him. At this point Avier realized he was in need of some serious outside help. He focused on his mark and beseeched Sola to provide him help. Sola works in funny ways, or so Avier thought, when a devil named Caliope came forth. He offered a pact in exchange for the strength to become free. Avier agreed and received training. With his new powers, he was able to escape. A couple of days later, Avier entered a glade and had a blinding vision of the future – he stood on a mountaintop and surveyed the land, and the wind walls were gone. When his vision returned, a large lizard was at his side. Avier suddenly knew that Sola had sent the Lizard to help him — this was Sola’s aid, not the opportunistic devil. In that glade, Avier received training from nature itself, forming an unbreakable bond between he and Firise the Lizard.
After his training was complete, Avier went about finding the mountain from his vision. He travelled to many parts of the continent before being captured, for trespassing, by Dwarves. However, there was a Deva with these Dwarves who, like Avier, had the mark of Sola. This Deva, Xanlannen, arranged for Avier’s release. Together they left the Dwarven camp and went towards the kingdom of Urza Major. The were met en route by Ruta Skadi, who introduced them to others that had the mark of Sola.
