Bio:

Life should have been simple for Efram: Hatched at the Royal Aerie in northwestern Aundair and of the highest magebred stock, his days should have been spent soaring lazily over Fairhold with a permanent billet in the stable of the Greens and Golds. Should, of course, being the operative word: The young chick was chosen by Prince-Consort Sasik to be raised into the protector of Sasik’s newborn daughter, Austasia. Life as a royal pet cum protector turned out to be fairly cushy as well, save for the instances when his young charge insisted on getting into trouble. And since young Austasia was an Action Princess in training, this was entirely too often.

Then came the day of Austasia’s “escape” from Fairhold. Poor Efram bore the brunt of the blame for his ward’s disappearance in the dead of the night, though he’d been asleep at the time himself. It wasn’t his fault that the insane magics used to enhance his pedigree also hadn’t removed the necessity of sleep, after all. Worse than all the acrimony and scorn that were heaped upon him, though, were when the Knights Phantom requisitioned him to assist in their search for Austasia in Sharn. And demanded that he be teleported there: Oh, how Efram hated teleportation. It activated something in the still-feral bowels of his mind and caused him to flip out. Which he dutifully did after being zapped across Khorvaire. Things got out of hand when he was freed from his pen in the Terminus Station by Austasia in a bid to escape. Thankfully for everyone involved, the party arrived just in time to subdue the raging dragonhawk before it could kill its charge. And did the subduing with non-lethal force, no less! …though Reine continues to regret such, constantly looking skyward for fear that a circling dragonhawk will pounce on him.
