He’s well-read and excellent at talking to people, especially women, but he’s a little guarded when it comes to his personal life. He’s traveled all over Khy’eras for his company (Mistfire Trading Company) to secure deals, mainly dealing in spices and foodstuffs. He has a soft spot for hard-working people who just need an opportunity and can be overly generous. He also can be impatient and abhors people who lie for their own gain and incompetent people in positions of power. That being said, he dotes on his four cats and is frequently accused of spoiling them.

Soltaevar was born to the Turco and Varni of House Velca in Órlbelle, in the winter of 13 AoV, as it is now reckoned. After Bhelest's Curse stripped the Kerasoka elves of their magic, his father and younger sister were lost in the subsequent unrest. He and his mother eventually relocated to Fellsgard, where, with the help of his mother's contacts, they founded Mistfire Trading Company. Soltaevar and his mother built up the company to the point that now, in 288 AoN, Mistfire is one of the most successful merchant companies in Fellsgard, specializing in spices and foodstuffs, with a number of ships, overland couriers, and pack animals available to its battalion of employees.
Soltaevar traveled extensively as a young adult, from Domrhask to Ajteire and beyond, mostly for business but also for pleasure. He was kind of a playboy when he was younger, up to about 20 years ago; his longest relationship lasted 6 months. He broke it off when he had to leave and he suspected the lady was trying to trick him for the purpose of keeping him around. Her lying made him distrustful of other women and he's never had anything other than short flings since then. His mother passed away fifteen years ago, leaving Soltaevar the sole owner of Mistfire and hereditary Turco of House Velca. After his mother's death, he lost some of his joie de vivre and rarely attends lavish social gatherings, preferring a quiet night in.
House Velca’s colors are red, gold, and purple; their arms are a purple flame on a gold circle surrounded by red.
