Naeldor Greengrass, is the Chancellor of the University of Shrike. Naeldor’s father is a pureblooded elf from Goldsun. His mother was a human woman from the village of Greengate, outside of Shrike.  A frail child, Naeldor spent most of his youth indoors, escaping into books of history and lore.  He went on to become an academic, studying at the University of Shrike, Shadowhold and even the Adamantine Archive. During his studies, Naeldor discovered a talent for magic and became an abjurer wizard. He participated in a few adventures, in his youth, but preferred the quite life of academe.
Several years later, Naeldor returned to the University of Shrike as an instructor. Twenty years later, Naeldor became Chancellor.
When Shrike surrendered to the Draconic Empire, the University was shut down. After the first few weeks, Governor Darrix allowed the University to reopen, but under close supervision. Chancellor Naeldor has been drafted by the governor-general into becoming a part of her informal advisory committee. Initially reluctant to participate, his attitude changed after Darrix threatened to have the contents of the University library transported en mass back to the Draconic Empire.

The Chancellor cooperates with the governor-general for the sake of the University, its faculty and its students. However, that has not stopped him from providing quiet support to the Resistance. Chancellor Naeldor has contacts in unusual places, from the noble elf households of Goldsun and the master sages of the Adamantine Archive to the mercenary companies of Swordhold and Sallir. If the imperial governor ever carried out her threat, it is likely she and the forces occupying Shrike would discover Chancellor Naeldor is far more resourceful, and vengeful, than anyone imagined.
