If given time he has the ability to call upon strange spirits that sleep within the environment around him which can cause some very dramatic effects. He guards this knowledge and preserves it because it is an old form of magic from his own people, vowing to the Hist never to reveal its secrets to an non argonian.
When not fighting or adventuring he can be found teaching anyone who wishes to learn the beauty of reading and writing.
He doesn't speak much of his history, but from what friends have found out from him during the long nights at the campfire or drunk in the taverns is as follows.
He is a father but left Black March when his life mate and eldest son were killed by a dunmer slave catchers groups, his other children were taken to Morrowind and vanished without trace. Striken with grief he left Black Marsh and wandered the lands of Skyrim learning all he could about the land, the spirits that slumbered within and its people.
It was in an old dwemer city ruin where he met Ulfbert Shatter-Shield.
Ulfbert's expedition had fallen foul of some deadly traps and dwemer steam powered guardians, Left-Paw-Alight and his team had entered the city from another point, it was only chance that the two groups met. Upon seeing Ulfbert and the survivors of his group Left-Paw-Alight decided to lend aid to the stricken nords. During the daring rescue Left-Paw-Alight lost three of his own team to the deadly guardians and his right hand, but still managed to free Ulfbert and Kavak from the traps and guardians that had trapped them. The remaining survivors from both teams joined forces and continued to complete their tasks within the city. It was at this point Ulfbert found he couldn't pronounce Left-Paw-Alight's saxhleel name so gave him the name of Left-Paw-Alight due to his magic fireballs being summoned from his left hand.
Ulbert offered Left-Paw-Alight employment to teach his son Kym to read and write, a job the argonian took with delight he also became known as the clan holds healer as he knew about herbs and healing magic. During his time in the Shatter-Shield clan hold his right hand grew back which was a testament to the argonians regenerative powers.
In time he saw the birth of Volk and then Brom and taught them also how to read and write, out of the three brothers though Volk and Left-Paw-Alight had gained a friendship that none could explain.
When Volk signed up with general Veldam for three years of service to the Pact Ulfbert pleaded with Left-Paw-Alight to go with his son and make sure he was safe. Left-Paw-Alight agreed and it came to be a relief to him as he was starting to get itchy feet anyway.
His view on magic is very different from his peers. He sees spirits living in the land, trees, air, water and fire; he has also found a way to call on their help with some very devastating effects in the past. Although he can still use his own reserves of magicka like other mages he prefers to use sympathetic magic or the spirits that answer his call.
Left-Paw-Alight is very tolerant of other races in Tamriel, and is very quick to make fun or joke in the situations he finds himself in. This has in the past put him bad light with other mages who view him as a simpleton, only to find out to late that there is a cunning mind behind the façade.
