Albryce is a gnome hailing from the village of Laurianta. Like many of his kind, he is a dabbler who tends to obsess on projects until the next shiny thing comes along. one of his longest lasting obsessions is music and he has yet to tire of the fiddle or being the focus of an appreciative audience. There are few gnomish permanent residents where he grew up so he remained rather close to both Aedin Ashai and Summeri “Summer” Ashai. He has had an on again, off again mutual romantic fascination with Summer but their friendship has recently cooled to an almost sibling-like relationship- like close cousins if you will.
A middling poet and a minor bard, Albryce cannot stand taking orders from another and so has never successfully apprenticed to a more experienced musician. It was while dicussing their respective futures that Albryce inadvertantly planted the idea in Summer’s head to make something of herself and seek out the Sword Saint Celebrist at the Shrine of Fiery Champion. After she left, he decided to follow and see where his fortune takes him as well.
