    Default How the HECK did Elan's Mother and Father get together?

    Got to wonder on this; how did those two get together long enough to have kids is a small wonder next to how they got MARRIED. A small fling is somewhat explainable, but getting wed and living together is strange.



    I'd love to see those two (if they're both still around) end up being in the same strip at one point just to hear the conversations. How do you guys think it happened?

    They were both once neutral, and were influenced by opposite alignment people.

    Elan's Mother fell in love with Nale's Father, Elan's mother was obviously a bard. You could hear her singing the songs in the short clip that they showed her. Bards tend to go around with legends and write their tales, bards are the ultimate henchmen.

    In the panel, we saw that the Father was always away at war while the Mother was at home in the village. She probably didn't get to know him well before he left, but you must realize that matches like this happen all the time in lust. Elan's mother was Chaotic Good and the father Lawful Evil, its not like Lawful Good and Chaotic Evil.

    It was the usual love story: love at first sight, passionate romantic fling, joyful wedding day, then 5 minutes later, KSNAM! -- Reality hit. If it weren't for lawyers, those two would still be living together, bickering about his pillaging success versus the price of horse oats.

    Let's all take a moment to be grateful for lawyers.

    Opposites attract. It was fate. Just as it was fate that brought Elan and Nale back together.

    Stranger things have happened. Look at James Carville and Mary Matalin (actually, don't look - they are scary to look at).

    I'm thinking the Two were the common cliche of "Two who bicker alot, but actually like one another". After all, he divorced her, not KILLED her, so it couldn't of been that bad.


    Their father was probably like one of the incredibly lovable evil villians, like Xyclon or thog.

    Maybe they woke up in bed together, totally hung over and unable to remember the last 48 hours, and realized they were in the Honeymoon Suite at the casino hotel... rather than get a quick annulment, they decided to try it out... but instead of true love, they found a lot of stormy passion interrupted by comic incompatibility...

    I think we have the makings of a new tv sitcom!

    Well i have to seperate ideas.

    1)( only if and mother was a bard) She is the sexual opposite of Elan and part of HER job description is she is supposed to suduce evil warlords

    2)(if and mother was any other class) opposites attract

    I guess that Elans/Nales dad met their mom, seduced her with charm person or something, was there for a week or two, fled, called the lawyer, stole Nale from their Mom, and left into the great unknown.

    I agree with the above two. Opposites do attract and the mother seems like the sort of person who would try to change her love. Also, if you remember the divorce scene, it was the father that was sueing for divorce.

    So it was those darn door-to-door evangelists who caused all the trouble! Dad was swayed by Evil's Witnesses , while Mom found the Church of Latter-Day Chipperness appealing.

    What's disturbing is how very plausible this is--although I think that at some point along the way, alcohol had to be involved.

    Actually, here's my convoluted version of events:

    Their father is a dictator, and he meets a very beautiful, practical woman (she is a bard), who he falls in love with quickly and marries. They have the twins, and argue mostly over how to raise them. Then they get divorced, father takes Nale, mother takes Elan.
    Yup.

    That's great.

    What if it was mind control? And this whole thing has secretly been plotted out by Xykon for centuries, as he plots his rise to power and eventual taking over of the galax-...erm...world. Yeah.

    Nobody ever said Elan's mother was a bard. The fact that she sings and is Elan's mother doesn't automatically mean that she's a bard. That being said, I think very wierd circumstances were involved, that probably included beer somehow.

    It was probably the specific style in which she was singing that influenced that assumption, although that might not mean anything of course.
