Character Information Edit

Background Edit

Charik Ar Bowrig was born into a large mercenaries camp south of the Torlaac Moor in Darguun. His father, the slaver Gorhik Borwig, tried to raise Charik like himself: an agressive, cold, bloodthirsty lord. Charik grew disdainful of his father, after hearing stories passed on by slaves of heroes from other lands. Intrigued he began to keep records of all the stories the slaves would tell him.

Once Charik reached adulthood he was tasked by his father to hunt down a caravan crossing the Seawall Mountain and flank them into an ambush down the mountain. Charik had grown so dissatisfied with his life as a slaver he decided to approach the caravan and strike a deal with them. If they would let Charik come with them, he would lead them safely past the ambush and down the mountain. the caravan of entertainers, named the "Roaming Sun", agreed.

Charik joined with the troupe and made good money using his book of heroes he wrote when he was younger. He would tell tales of mighty knights and powerful wizards to the commoners who would pass by the group, enthralling them with his tales. Later in the evenings he would entertain his new family of travelers with music he would make from home-made instruments.

The "Roaming Sun" was poor for a caravan, but the Sovereign Host be damned if they weren't happy.

Appearance Edit

Charik is an oaken haired Hobgoblin standing at about average height with a bulky build. His toothy grin shows a surprisingly dull set of teeth. He is noticeably hunched over when standing or sitting.

Age: 32 Gender: Male Height: 6'2" Weight: 230 lbs.

Personality Edit

Charik, for a Hobgoblin, is uncharacteristically laid back at first glance. He would rather to avoid confrontation and aggression if at all possible just to prevent any unnecessary effort. However, once he is filed with the song of his people, he changes into an aggressive warrior hell-bent on rallying his friends and allies to his cause.

Alignment: Unaligned

Hooks Edit

  • Charik never knew his family outside of his Father (His Mother was a slave)
  • The "Roaming Sun" caravan still wanders southern Khorvaire

Kicker Edit

Charik had told enough stories about brave adventurers that they became repetitive and dull. He wanted to experience the stories, he wanted to live them. During the first spring after the war he set out to become an adventurer.
