I'm looking to be more specific with the locations for my character's backstory. I was wondering if any of you had suggestions in Faerūn that would fit the descriptions well. I'm doing the LMoP campaign right now.
Hometown: My character is a half-elf. He's from a large, predominately human city and didn't have much contact with elves growing up. He had an elvish first name and blue hair so he's not being subtle about being a half-elf. His last name is a Mulan name. He felt alienated by both human and elvish societies, but not necessarily discriminated against.
University: He eventually left the city and went to study at a university. He desired to learn everything about every creature he could (monsters, humanoids, abominations, etc).
Forest: One day when he was in a forest studying the local wildlife, he inadvertently entered a pact with an unfathomable being.
