Devin was the 7th born in a large gnomish family living in the hills outside of a large forest of elvish settlements. As a result, he was frequently recruited to play with the neighboring elf children and spent a good deal of time in both gnomish and elvish towns.
One day while showing off his prestidigitation skills to the local elvish children, an elven elder appeared and requested that Devin accompany him to his abode. There, he revealed that he was a wizard elder and that he had observed the spark of magic in Devin and believed that the path of wizardry was in his future. The old wizard agreed to apprentice Devin until such time as he believed that he was unlikely to endanger himself or others, and also expose him to more than simple gnomish tricks, such as changing the color of one’s hair or enlarging various body parts so as to impress the opposite sex. Devin flourished under his instruction, and together with his best friend, Loki, a high level elven cleric of Obad-hai, eventually formed the adventuring company the Valkyries. After little more than 10 years, Devin, Loki and the remaining Valkyries brought water to the desert, and formed a new city to further their own schemes and reputations. After several centuries Devin amassed considerable wealth, but lost it all in a ill-placed bet with a halfling merchant named Feet, and was forced to consider a lucrative job teaching new adventurers the basics of arcane magic.
He is to this day still friends with Loki the elf, and continues to think of Loki’s son, Sif, as his nephew. He is on reasonably good terms with his ex-wife, Nadia, and is ever proud of his son, Nebin, who is also an adventurer. He spends his time now adding uncommon and rare spells to his books, playing with his dog, Devi the 203rd, and perfecting the perfect pot of gnomish stew.
