The Legend of Drizzt Fan Fic: Part 1 - Homeland
It all started with a story called The Crystal Shard by R.A. Salvatore. Since the Crystal Shard's release in 1988, the series has turned into a fantasy phenomenon spanning 19 books (so far), a number of spinoff books, a few video game cameos, and a comic book series.
R.A. Salvatore's Legend of Drizzt series has been adored by fantasy fans for over 20 years. I think it's about time for a movie! Here is my fan cast for Drizzt's origin story, Homeland!
Chronologically, Drizzt's tale begins with the book Homeland, the first book of the Dark Elf trilogy.
In this book, we are introduced to Menzoberranzan, Drizzt's birthplace. We also meet the first figures that would shape Drizzt into the hero he is today..................
Drizzt Do'Urden - Luke Goss
The hero of our series. His lavender eyes and kind nature make him an anomaly among his evil race.
Zaknafein Do'Urden - Liam Neeson
Drizzt's father, mentor and first real friend. He is the weapons master of House Do'Urden. He is also the one drow who shares Drizzt's kind spirit but has found no escape from his existance.
Malice Do'Urden - Julia Roberts
Drizzt's mother, priestess of Lolth and Matron of House Do'Urden. She is working to increase the standing of her house through whatever means necessary.

Vierna Do'Urden - Hayden Panettiere
The youngest of Drizzt's sisters, she also serves as his caretaker during his earlier years. She is Drizzt's only other sibling that shares Zaknafein's genes. During the years she raises Drizzt, she does show the occasional hint of kindness.

Drizzt's elder brother and Academy master. He killed Drizzt's oldest brother to become elderboy of the house and watches his back, expecting the same from Drizzt.

And that is my cast for the first story of Drizzt's long tale. If you can think of any characters that I missed from Homeland, let me know, and I'll make sure to add them!
Also, keep an eye out for my next Legend of Drizzt Fan Fic: Part 2 - Exile.
