Elial is an elven bard the party met when they first came to know each other. A jovial character, he was traveling with the caravan Khaska was escorting through the Niktean Wastes. He plays the mandolin. The party met him in Codex I-Chapter 1.

Apparently he is a fugitive of some note being tracked by the Knights of the Silver Dragons. Gerald Reitman and Quilleh were specifically after him shortly after the party met him.
