Varet was born a half-elf to a Kagonesti mother and raised amongst the Elves. He was never accepted as a full elf, and due to his rapid aging relative to other elves, even when he was biologically an adult he was still treated as a child by his tribe. Varet grew to despise his human side and wished to remove it as much from his identity as possible. He does not know who his father was, and he never asked, though it is possible his father is still alive.
Varet had no real friends for most of his formative years, as the Kagonesti his age were still children and unrelatable to him, and adults would not associate with him on a peer-to-peer level.
His loneliness, and the tribe’s reverence for nature, led him to study the ways of the Druids. He was considered a precocious youngster by his Circle, but his isolation and natural affinity for nature and study made him an effective student, and his basic Druid training was completed very quickly for an elf.
Upon completing his initiation in the Druid circle, Varet ventured off on his own, realizing that the Tribe would not ever really accept him as a full member. He grew increasingly more isolated, and has only gained more difficulty in relating to people. It’s weird for him to be around people he likes and trusts. His anger and awkwardness are all reflections of a need to belong and lack of understanding of what that feels like.
