*Almost all of Lelaras’ funds are tied up in the library. He rarely carries valuables with him but owns a virtually unlimited supply of basic library essentials, such as parchment, ink, quills, magnifying glasses and the like.
Lelaras Kenivelson is a very typical bookworm. He loves everything about literature and often times forgets to take meals because he’s so wrapped up in a reading project. Early in his adult life, he signed on with an adventuring group, having heard stories about the great wealth of hidden and lost books just waiting to be found in the dark places where nobody goes. After a year, however, he woke up to the realities of the danger of adventuring when he saw one of his teammates killed. After this rude awakening, he liquidated the wealth he had acquired and bought the old library in Free Haven. Originally he just wanted the wealth of books inside, but once he saw what he had, he just couldn’t keep it to himself and began working towards sharing his new purchase with the world.
Lelaras Kenivelson is an exceptionally patient and understanding person. He works with a class as long as it takes for them to understand what he’s trying to teach them. Most of his free time is spent tutoring those with schedules that conflict with normal class times and those that just need a little bit of extra attention. He rarely loses his temper and he never allows any of his students to feel like they can’t accomplish the goals they set for themselves.
