History: Doriath has been King of Alfheim for about two centuries. Before that, he was an adviser to King Celedryl for another century, and spent two hundred years before that as an adventurer.
Personality: The king is grave and solemn on the throne. He never makes a snap judgement and seems to have no particular prejudice against any race except goblins and trolls – and who can blame him? Off the throne, he is informal and relaxed with other adventurers, happy to trade stories and lend assistance.
Appearance: Doriath is an average-sized elf, about 6’5″ and 125 pounds. He is fair-skinned and light haired and speaks Thyatian with a decided Ierendian accent (“like, y’know really”), a legacy of the years he spent there.
DMing Notes: King Doriath is far more accessible to his people than most kings, another vestige of his adventuring career. PCs who have performed any service for Alfheim can get his ear anytime. They might also get recruited for special missions which the king feels the Council will either disapprove of or take forever to settle on.

Design changes for Character
This clan refers to itself as the “royal clan,” because it is the family of Doriath, current king of Alfheim. About 300 years ago, a branch of the clan, the Erewan, moved to Glantri and now is one of the major powers there. A member of that clan, Sire Galladin, is the ambassador to Glantri from Alfheim, just as a member of the Glantri branch is Glantri’s ambassador to Alfheim.
There is much contact between this clan and outsiders from Darokin as well as Glantri. As King, Doriath has foresworn ties to the clan. Regardless, many Eyrendyl elves hold positions within the Alfheim government, such as it is.
Erendyl elves are some of the best craftsmen in Alfheim. Artists and artisans come from all over to study under the carvers of Elleromyr, the clan holding. The profits from Elleromyr carvings and other artwork has brought the clan much outside money, which they use to equip the Elleromyr Guard.
Converting Erendyl Elves in BECMI to 5th Edition – Elves split their advancement from a martial class and a spellcasting class for the first ten levels, then dedicate themselves to either the martial or the spellcasting class for the Letter advancement starting at C and going to M. Erednyl elves prefer Bard and Druid as their match.
