Physical Appearance Edit
Anema is typically outfitted with an outfit of Purple and Gold, the colors of the Core lineage. His skin is soft like silk, his hair is always perfect, and his eyes are enchanting. He fashions a goatee and several pieces of gaudy jewelry. After becoming immortal, Anema always appears to be in his mid 20s.
When transformed under a full moon, Anema was considered still to be a handsome wolf monster.

Early Life Edit
Anema was born of the Core lineage in Golik, Amusa in 571 P.R. His father is Riccardo E. Core, and his mother was named Bella Sposa. According to Anema, his parents were "the Opera's first great stars".
Spoiled from birth, Anema is the noble son of a long reigning family of bards who run the entertainment district in the largest city in Quelmar: Galik, Amusa. For over a century he indulged in women, money, drinks, and low level addictions, all the while he performed music in Galik's underground circuit, which mostly included small taverns in odd-sides of town.
But ultimately his father beat the shit out of him for spending most of their money, Anema had realized he could be happier away from the urban lifestyle. Because hiring a boat from Galik would have drawn controversy, he fled to the nearby shanty town of Seawell.
Adventuring 691-present Edit
Werewolf Transformation Edit
Loss of Enel Edit
It was during his adventures in Sneerwell that Anema decided he would write his own book and add it to the Sneerwell library. This book would become How to Perform for Orcs, and would launch Anema on his writing career.
The Tovag Baragu Edit
Return to Minetown Edit
The Oppidan War Edit
The strings of relationship are tight and about to break, and the only way to actual peace [Motto stop writing every word] I feel that there is no other alternative to the...um...very hostile climate of this region's peace (not just faux surface peace) is to let the cities express their opinions through force.
Fondly yours, Anema E. Core. P.S. As...as...uh...as the main diplomat between Sneerwell and partnering cities, I firmly propose that you endorse Dardin [not Dardin, what is the city with the elves?] Granite, not Dardin, in the future war. This will become a world war I'm sure.
The Tovag Again Edit
On an expedition to find his friend Zugs, Anema and Doraleous once again entered the Tovag Baragu. After reuniting the team, they made their way back to Quelmar (or an alternate Quelmar). However, they arrived in the ethereal plane, and it appeared to be over 100 years later...on the day of Tiamat's attack on the city of Dolmvay.
Nearly an hour after phasing his way back onto the material plane, Anema pissed off Vecna, who then sent him back to his native timeline. Because of this, Anema now had 100 years to prepare for the events that were unfolding. He vowed to raise an army large enough to take on Tiamat, and to arrive on the day of the battle the long-way-around.
"Anema and the Life Without Death" Edit
Shortly after he retired, Anema began work on his memoir. "Anema and the Life without Death" became the stories and adventures of Anema E. Core after he became immortal. His post-mortalis life starting with The Day of Nimz in 693 and ending with the Anema and the Father of the Halls in 701, just after the turn of the century. The most notable things of this time period include the founding and growth of The Anema Institute of Discovery (AID), which he based out of Sneerwell. Additionally he lived through the birth of his and Lora's child Giustino E. Core, the death of Lora Pendergras, the marriage between Anema and Paulette, and the birth of Anema's child with Paulette: Enel E. Core.
Return to Adventuring Edit
Anema's retirement would roughly last until 740 PR (with the exception of a small number of extraordinary days). Anema would return to the adventuring trail by first putting together a new team. To do this, he went back to the company his old team founded: Sick of this Shit Incorporated. Talking to the guild leader Benny, Anema stumbled onto three members of the guild he believed could fill the hole in his heart left by his old teammates.
The Return of Dragons Edit
He would be 1 day late to Tiamat's siege on Dolmvay, having mis-remembered the day or mistaken the timeline at some point in the last century.

Powers and Abilities Edit
Anema is a magical bard, with all the powers that typically come along with such a title. However, Anema is also capable of many unique powers that he has picked up along his adventuring days.

- Accompaniment: Anema can give 2 inspiration dice to one person.

In addition, Anema is immortal due to his attunement to the Boon of Immortality .
Weapons and Equipment Edit
Anema typically equips a sword, a bow, and a magic spear he has had recreated several times. The spear returns to him in a boomerang like fashion.
