Journey through Elfenhart!
Pyras was born to a couple of TIefling refugees from war-torn Cantra to the neighboring Liefa. However, Liefans’ being notoriously religiously zealous and racist, his parents were lynched by a mob in a border city, lead by citizens who were sick of the lack of resources resulting from the flood of refugees. A visiting farmer caught up in the mob saved the infant tiefling, hiding him under his cloak. His wife having just lost a daughter to a miscarriage, he brought home the infant to soothe her.
