Nawen was a half elven rogue, founder of the way of the shadow, and companion of Aust Liadon during the events of the Elfslayer campaign. She, Aust and Riddil Halfelven met while defeating a doppelganger who had been plaguing an elven village just outside Fairport.
Their adventures eventually brought them into conflict with a clad of Dark Elves. Nawen Jadie was thought to have been lost while in combat with the Dark Elf hero deity, Valotha the Venomous. After the battle, she faded into history. Her legacy as the founder of the Shadow Dancer discipline has lasted all the way into the fifth age.
