Noque was just a toddler when Kelethin was attacked during the War of the Fay. While his parents were killed, he himself was taken to be used as a slave by the Teir'dal. One of the Teir'dal, Kevaar Yez'Ra, took a liking to the Feir'dal boy and eventually contrived to win him through a bet, which he succeeded in.
Kevaar took him to his home in Neriak, and there Noque lived most of his life as a slave. Kevaar was an uncommonly kind master, and Noque looked up to him as a father figure, though in many ways the relationship was not ideal. Kevaar was still struggling with his views of Innoruuk and Tunare, and was not always kind to Noque, but considering how most Teir'dal treated Noque, that was a high mark above the usual.
During the Rending, Kevaar had to flee Neriak. Being just a slave, Noque had no idea why, but was saddened to learn Kevaar had been reportedly hunted down and slain in the Commonlands. Kevaar's firstborn son, Sirreth, took over the leadership of House Yez'Ra. The House fell out of power and favor, and eventually, Noque was able to slip away and escape back to Faydark.
Noque was born with the ability to sense spirits, but as he grew up he found he had to squelch this ability in order to not go mad from all the suffering he could sense in Neriak. Just recently, one of his ancestors returned to guide him back to the path of a mystic, which he is stubbornly resisting.
Believe nothing, no matter where you have read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense.
Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
--Martin Luther King, Jr.
