Nalasc grew up in the Northlands, in a remote gnomish community called Lonelystone. As a child, Nalasc was drawn to the forests and the mountains, so when he was called to embrace a druidic path, no one was truly surprised.
As a servant of nature, Nalasc became a formidable warden of the forests around his home. When the war began, he offered protection and safe conduct to any good creature that wished to pass through his wood. Tha was how he met the goliath ranger, Gorg, and, later on, the gnome barbarian called Kip.
When the Draconic Empire took the Northlands, the trio moved south. Nalasc accompanied Gorg and Kip to look after them. In Darkwater, the trio encountered other adventurers and would form the group known as Lux Tenebris.
Of all the members of Lux Tenebris, Nalasc is probably the most at-peace. Although he would like to return to the Northlands, he is content to make his home in the south. The world has been badly treated by the war and the druid knows he can use his powers to help restore the natural order wherever he may be.
Also, he’s curious to see what will happen with Gorg and Thylic.

Author's Note: Although Nalasc has the Hermit background, instead of Discovery as a feature, I swapped it out for the Healer feature as detailed on page 167 of the Player's Handbook.
