Barca Khaarthanius, a graduate of Stratos Tower, is a new face on the Elven Elder Council. He has only been president of Stratos Tower for a little over a year, but the academy has seen increases in enrollment from every race (besides Dwarves) since he took office. Though quiet and reserved, Khaarthanius believes that magic should be available to every race, not something Elven to be jealously guarded. While some on the Council believe him too liberal with his enrollment standards, Stratos Tower’s most recent graduates (many Humans and Gnomes) have made big impressions on the front lines in battles against the Orcs. While not outspoken in Council meetings, Khaarthanius supports providing aid to the Dwarves.
