Edit "It is the colour of a bleached skull, his flesh; and the long hair which flows below his shoulders is milk-white. From the tapering, beautiful head stare two slanting eyes, crimson and moody He was born with albinism , making his flesh pale, his hair white, and his eyes a deep crimson.
He is very tall, slender to the point of gauntness, yet elegantly muscled. When not in armour, Elric favours all-black garb, but has been known to dress as a mercenary, donning wildly clashing barbarian attire.
He carries Stormbringer in a scabbard at his belt, and wears the ancient Ring of Kings on his left hand. Weak and sickly from birth, Elric is forced to subsist on drugs and potions to sustain his strength and health.
This changes, for better or worse, when he obtains his sword, Stormbringer. His mother died in childbirth and his father, Emperor Sadric the Eighty-Sixth, blamed her death entirely on his sole, thin-blooded son.
By the time his father died, Elric had learned a great deal, and took the Ruby Throne as one of the most powerful sorcerers the world had ever seen. Yyrkoon secretly plotted to usurp Elric is he possibly could.
Elric sent his soldiers to search the world for his traitorous cousin and his beloved Cymoril, but no trace of them could be found. Elric was desperate, he drew on the arcane knowledge of his ancestors and summoned his patron demon, the Chaos Lord Arioch, Lord of the Seven Darks.
Elric personally led an expedition to find Yyrkoon, and confronted him in his stronghold. Cymoril was rescued, but Yyrkoon fled once more, this time through the Shade Gate, a portal that led to one of the infinite hells.
Elric followed his cousin through the Gate, and found himself in a world as dark and closed as a giant cavern. Elric met a man named Rackhir the Red Archer, a wanderer of the Multiverse, and together they fought through the dark, cave-like hell to find Yyrkoon in the Pulsing Cavern, the legendary resting place for the runeswords Stormbringer and Mournblade. Within the cavern, Yyrkoon took up Mournblade and Elric took up Stormbringer, and the terrible weapons sang in joy as the cousins fought and Arioch looked on.
At the end of it, Yyrkoon had been defeated, and though the sentience within Stormbringer urged Elric to take his cousins soul, he refused, mastering Stormbringer with his own will. Against all good judgment, and against the protests of Cymoril, Elric abdicated the Ruby Throne, appointed Yyrkoon as regent and set out for the Young Kingdoms, to learn of the world and seek the truth of his destiny.
Elric and the Young Kingdoms Edit Elric lived among the humans of the Young Kingdoms, traveling and earning his way as a mercenary. During this time, Elric would get a hint of his destiny and his true nature during his adventures aboard the Dark Ship. Meanwhile, Yyrkoon had Elric declared a traitor and an outlaw, ordering his execution should he set foot in Melnibone again.

The novel had about a quarter of the text removed for reasons of length mostly in the second and third novellas and the remaining text rearranged with new bridging material added to make sense of the restructuring. These paperbacks all featured cover art work by the same young artist, Michael Whelan , and helped to define the look of both Elric and his sword Stormbringer. The DAW edition of Stormbringer restored some of the original structure and text compared to the release, but other revisions were performed and other material excised. Both would appear in later collections with "The Last Enchantment" occasionally retitled "Jesting with Chaos". Both of these two-volume compilations are arranged according to the internal chronology of the saga. The White Wolf text has minor revisions when compared to the Millennium release.
