Ilvanos Cyrenäe "Ilvanos the Explorer"

(1066-1132/3) A great explorer and adventurer, and the father of Ilnavel Cyrenäe; the first king of Cyrendar. In the year 1085 of the Third Age, Ilvanos left his native city of Cyr, and set off from the continent of Iskandar to explore the known world, and specifically the continent of Corwyn. Many years later, he returned from Corwyn in 1099/3 with a strange wizard named Arcelor. Arcelor had foretold the Doom of Iskandar, and Ilvanos had come to believe the prophecy without hesitation. Arcelor had shown Ilvanos a great abandoned city built by the Elder-Elves. This would someday become Wyn Falas; the capitol of Cyrendar.

Iskari Legend has it that around this time, Ilvanos returned from his many travels with Arcelor accompanying him. Ilvanos told his young son Ilnavel of a great abandoned ancient elvish city, and the impending "Doom of Iskandar." It was then that Ilnavel and his father began building his great fleet of ships to escape the doomed continent. Unfortunately, Ilvanos grew ill and died before the fleet was completed. Soon thereafter, Ilnavel left the continent forever and shortly thereafter, the Iskari empire was destroyed in Skyfall.

Ilvanos was married to Empress Azonia of Khorvis.
