Vyaalis was from the Coral Kingdom, a sea elven kingdom in the Trackless Sea near Evermeet.


For a time, he lived in Memnon, learning the art of longsword fighting from Shieldlord Hastor el Khafar.

Something of a wanderer, Vyaalis's curiosity led him to explore the surface world in Calimshan and Tethyr. His interest in the longsword stemmed from his discovery of one among the wreckage of the Pasha's Palace, a sunken Calishite vessel.[1]
