Edint Rie is a figure that is shrouded a bit in mystery, for, while he wrote allot about the places he has been and the places he has seen, he rarely writes about himself. The only people who know for sure who or what he is are the bishops for the church of Landon and they do not wish to discuss the matter. Bishop Eoire Itum, head of the Myrcian Church of Landon and financier of the Golden Dragon Inn keeps the ancient scrolls that describe the origin and Identity and only the truly devout are allowed to view them.
Born about 1200 years after The dragon wars and lived for around 70 years. The exact figures are not known, but his first journal entry is dated 1217, the year of Volk, 3rd month on the 21st, and many historians agree he was between 16 and 20 years old at the time of the first entry. Thus he lived around the end of the Orken wars and the beginning of the second age. What is interesting about his journal is that he wrote almost constantly about what he saw and experienced on his journeys. He had traversed nearly the entire face of Rune, visiting almost every major city of the time and categorizing the people and their cultures. This invaluable information has been used in constant studies and histories of people.
The books written in an ancient tongue, but Edint often used his own version of the tongues spell when he wrote his journals, allowing him to switch between languages mid word. The reason for this practice is lost in time, but needless to say many of the journals are almost untranslatable, even with the help of magic.
