Midnight is a 1/2 Black Dragon drow. When he keeps his temper under control, he is a brilliant tactician and a powerful leader. At the time of the Crossing (the Drow crossing the ocean to Khorvaire), Midnight is Sergeant of Dragon Platoon. This platoon was formed around him almost as soon as he was brought into Shadow Company due to his natural leadership skills.
Midnight was in the first group to participate in the Xen-far. He received an adamantine falchion. He likes to use the Falchion to sunder an opponent’s weapon and then intimidate his opponent (not that he is not already a scary sight).
Those members of the Dragon Platoon receive the Mark of the Dragon after their first confirmed kill. Midnight marks the individual with a ritual scar on their sword-arm that is in the shape of the horns of a black dragon.
Midnight spent his formative years with his dragon mother (Kaxxarya). He is very proud of his dragon heritage and uses dragon symbology in his platoon. However, his mother eventually cut ties with Midnight. She had hoped he would eventually be able to shift into a dragon form (much like she could shift into humanoid form). When it became clear that this would never occur, she cast him out. This hurt Midnight deeply, and he is now driven to become more powerful than a dragon.
