Farian met Thomadril while the former was in training with Tamadril Merrilyn, a renowned elder and wizard of the Wychpine. It was common for Tamadril to apprentice wizards, and Farian was one of many who sought his guidance. Farian and Thom were of age with each other, and Merrilyn—either through boredom or for his own amusement, often tried to convince Farian to shirk his studies to engage with merry making and impressing the girls. This was no mean feat, as Farian was often sour and moody, and at first only indulged Thom, thinking that it wouldn’t hurt to make friends with his master’s son. But as Farian wove magical amusements to the sounds of Thom’s fiddle, he began to enjoy the latter’s company and their friendship slowly grew over many long parties.
When Farian completed his training with Tamadril, he and Thom remained in constant communication. He is currently north of the Wychpine within the Stormpeak Mountains, attempting to contact the Raptorans as part of his membership in the Forerunners.
