Kevrry Telle’s mother, Eilella, was an elf and his father, Bill, a human mage. His parents had tried to live in Sayre where his father was from, but nature called to his mother and so they tried to return to her tribe when Kevrry was 8 summers old. The elves weren’t happy to have a human and his Half-Human son living among them so they were going to execute them. His mother pleaded with the Elven Council to spare them and they agreed to do so only if Bill could shoot an apple off of his son’s head. The elves were kind enough to give Bill a week to practice before the fated day.
When the day drew near, the whole tribe was present and they were confused when they saw Bill draw two arrows, one to load and one at the ready. As he aimed as his son’s quivering form, Tymora’s luck was with them and he was able to split the apple. He later explained that he’d drawn the second arrow so that he could kill himself if he’d accidentally killed his son. Bill and Kevrry were allowed to live amongst the tribe, opening the doors for better Elven-Human relations with the neighboring area. This tale dates to before the Spellplague, but it is still told far and wide as a good example of standing for what you believe in and never giving up.
