Raised in Turmish by her Cormyrian father and Turmian mother, Caladnei (kah-lad-nay) left home to join an adventuring company.
Traveling far via portals her group discovered, she became acquainted with the people and cultures of other parts of the world. She trained with fighters in Waterdeep, exchanged spells with Halruaan wizards, and learned to forge metal with the gold dwarves of the Great Rift. She came to Cormyr to tend to her ailing father, who returned to his homeland after Caladnei's mother drowned in a storm at sea, and supported herself as a local mercenary spellcaster and crafter of minor magic items.
Caladnei attracted the attention of Vangerdahast, the Royal Magician of Cormyr, when she single-handedly wiped out an orc raiding party from the Thunder Peaks.
The fact that this powerful sorcerer was content to lead a life without fame impressed him. Her refusal to accept the knighthood he arranged for her cemented his interest. In subtle ways he began training her for work under the royal banner of Cormyr, and Vangerdahast decided to retire after the recent troubles, he named her as his successor. Humbly, she accepted.
Despite her typical humility, Caladnei is feisty and opinionated, which makes dealing with court intrigue difficult for her at times. Fortunately for her, the Regent Alusair is of similar temperament and the two can discuss matters of state in a direct fashion. Caladnei prefers to remain a silent figure in the background, but she is slowly being pushed into the limelight by Alusair as the Steel Regent seeks time to herself away from the gossip and infighting.
