Orivon Firefist was captured as a six-year-old child by the Nilfghar--the dark elves--who attacked his village by night on one of their surface raids. Fifteen years later he was a moon-pale, scarred, muscular giant of a man, who spent his days at forgework for a dark elf family. Now he has successfully returned to the surface world home that he thought only existed in his most distant dreams. But the score is far from settled. Years of oppression and new revelations of the dark deeds of his former captors only fuel his forge of rage. And the fact that their evil still permeates the underworld only intensifies his desire for a dark vengeance.
