 Four years later, Bor's father also died and Bor realized he was on his own. Grieving, with nobody to care for him, he left Three Mills and spent some years in Hilltower before moving on to [[Nossed]]. In this port city, Bor started working for a dwarven bladesmith and quickly became adept at using knives, daggers and other blades. He also developed a taste for alcohol and spend more on dwarven spirits than he made at the bladesmith. His thirst, skills and debt brought him into bad company and before long he was skulking the docks of Nossed, doing odd jobs for the local crime syndicate. Four years later, Bor's father also died and Bor realized he was on his own.

 +Bor became increasingly aware of the legacy that the elves left behind after the [[724 LC]] [[Decree of Returning]]. Monuments, temples and other remnants of elven civilization intrigued him and whenever he had the possibility he would seek out information about his kind. In Nossed, this mostly came down to the tall tales told by merchants in the harbor, and the wood elf cuisine that persisted. Bor discovered he had a knack for cooking, and honed his skills in various restaurants.
 +
 +As time passed, Bor realized that his parents or other family may still be alive, somewhere. He left Nossed behind in [[890 LC]] (including some outstanding debts due to his drinking habits) and started traveling through Silimanis for years, seeking out leads in an attempt to uncover his family's past. One day, he revisited Aeclyra and once again stared at it marvelous appearance. At that point it struck him: he would leave behind Silimanis and alcohol, and travel toward the elven lands, where he would seek out his heritage.

 In the city, Bor hid Bingverd in the alchemist's guild and met with Ballelds, who was attempting to have [[Olyxx III]] declare war on the [[Labarean Empire]]. The two met with [[Hef Hasin]] in the refugee camp outside of the city and persuaded him to have the humans join a Laeryllian war against the gnomes. With this committment in place, Ballelds and Bor spread the rumor that the Citadel had been attacked by the Labareans. Together with [[Drynieth Herell]] and some of the more war-oriented [[Province Keepers]], Ballelds convinced the king to declare war. He also talked his way into a diplomatic mission to [[Qosid]] with [[Gaf Bhytear]] and Bor, to garner support from the wood elves. In the city, Bor hid Bingverd in the alchemist's guild and met with Ballelds, who was attempting to have [[Olyxx III]] declare war on the [[Labarean Empire]].

 +Unfortunately for Ballelds and Bor, they were wanted by the [[Silimani Gunslingers]] for crimes committed in [[King's Swamp]]. With a warrant out for their arrest, their diplomatic mission became jeopardized. However, with Gaf Bhytear unaware of the warrant, Bor managed to join with the Province Keeper, Thadil and Bingverd Flossbottom to head to [[Thellur]].
