Speed 6
BasicMeleeEldritch Strike (Standard; at-will)
Melee; One creature; Attack: +13 vs. AC. Hit: 1d8+6 damage. Effect: Slide foe up to 3 squares, counts as a basic attack.
MeleeFrigid Blade (Standard; at-will) ✦ Arcane, Cold, Weapon
Melee; One creature; Attack: +13 vs. AC. Hit: 1d8+6 damage. Effect: If the target starts its turn adjacent to Garrick, it takes a -4 speed penalty until the end of its next turn.
RangedHellish Rebuke (Standard; at-will) ✦ Arcane, Fire, Implement
Ranged 10; One Creature; Attack: +13 vs. Reflex. Hit: 1d6+6 fire damage. Effect: If Garrick takes damage before the end of his next turn, the target takes an extra 1d6+6 fire damage.
Aegis of Shielding (Minor; encounter) ✦ Arcane
Close burst 2; Target: One creature in burst. Garrick marks the target. The target remains marked until you use this power against another target. If you mark other creatures using other powers, the target is still marked. A creature can be subject to only one mark at a time. A new mark supersedes a mark that was already in place. If your marked target makes an attack that doesn’t include you as a target, it takes a –2 penalty to attack rolls. If that attack hits and the marked target is within 10 squares of you, you can use an immediate interrupt to reduce the damage dealt by that attack to any one creature by an amount equal to 9.
Warlock's Curse (Minor; at-will)
Garrick can place a Warlock's curse on the nearest enemy he can see. A cursed enemy is more vulnerable to his attacks. If he hits a cursed enemy with a warlock attack he can deal 1d6 extra damage. He decides whether to apply the extra damage after making the damage roll. He can only deal this extra damage once per round. The Curse remains in effect until the end of the encounter or until the cursed enemy is defeated.Garrick can place his curse on multiple enemies over the course of an encounter; each curse requires the use of a minor action. His Curse can't be placed on a creature already affected by his or another Warlock's Curse.
Assassin's Shroud (Free; at-will) ✦ Shadow
Close burst 10; One enemy you can see in burst;You subject the target to your shroud. If any of your shrouds are already on the target, you subject it to an additional shroud, up to a maximum of four. The shrouds last until you use this power against a different enemy or until the end of the encounter. Before you make an attack roll against the target, you choose to invoke either all your shrouds on it or none of them. If you invoke your shrouds, the attack deals 1d6 damage per shroud, minus one shroud if the attack misses, and all your shrouds then vanish from the target. This damage roll never benefits from bonuses to damage rolls, and is in addition to the attack’s damage, if any. Special: You can use this power only on your turn and only once per turn, and only twice per encounter.
RangedDiabolic Grasp (Standard; encounter) ✦ Arcane, Implement
Ranged 10; One creature Large or smaller; Attack: +10 vs. Fortitude; Hit: 2d8+6 damage, and he can slide the target 5 squares.

Ranged 10; Trigger: An enemy hits an ally with a melee attack; Target: The triggering enemy; Hit: Attack +13 vs. Will; You teleport the target 5 squares.

Character Information Edit

Background Edit

Garrick was born and raised within the Orien's enclave of Journey's Home in Passage, Aundair.

During his teen years he served his house as a courier, job that allowed him to travel through most of Khorvaire, be it by lightining rail or teleportation portals. He is proud of being one of the few of his generation to even travel outside of the mainland, having crossed the Barren Sea into the dangerous lands of Sarlona.

During one of his many travels he met an old riedran swordmaster who became interested in Garrick's martial prowress when defending an Orien's caravan and offered to tutor him on a very obscure form of swordplay. The man told him that it was a dying art, transmited from master to disciple for the last 3 generations. Although he refused after at first, in the end he finally accepted, The style itself was far from orthodox, relying heavily on diverse applications of arcane power, which enhanced by an unhallowed pact that the develper of the style had made with some obscure forces when developing it, turned out in a very unique series of attacks and defenses, unlike anything Garrick had ever seen before.

The taint of the pact carried from master to disciple, and while it has considerably weakened through the generations, Garrick still can feel an evil presence every time he calls upon his arcane repertoire.

On his 24th birthday, a seer visited his house and told him that he was destined to develop a dragonmark of his own, as many form his bloodline had before, but that in order to get the blessing he would need to leave the security of his home and live a life of his own. Exited by the idea Garrick decided to become an adventurer and after 5 years he has built a decent reputation but still there have been no signs of a dragonmark develpoing on his body.

Appearance Edit

Age: 25 Gender: Male Height: 5'8" Weight: 145lb

Hazel brown hair and green eyes. Garrick usually wears a sleeveless vest over a shirt, vestments designed for maximum mobility while looking somewhat elegant. Over these he usually wears brown and golden decorated bracers. He favors the use of leather pants and boots which suit him well for his constant traveling.

Personality Edit

Alignment: Unaligned

If one where to describe Garrick's personality with only one word it would have to be "changing". It's almost disturbing just how different he acts depending on the people arround him and the situation at hand, but not all of his personality shifts according to the situation. He's usually a very well mannered man who always keeps his word, even if it brings him trouble.

Although he is a silent man, he enjoys being surrounded by people with outgoing personalities as a source of amusement.

Hooks Edit

  • Any information regarding dragonmarks or dragonmarked people.
  • Thrill seeker.
  • Interested in the Arcane & History, specially if it is related to finding more about the taint in the source of his power. Knowing is half of the battle, reason why he usually jumps at the chance to learn more about it.
  • Trying to make a name for himself.

Kicker Edit

  • He was told that by experiencing life outside of his House's walls he'd be able to attain his own dragonmark and find his destiny.

Wishlist Edit

This section if for items this player/character may like to find during the course of adventuring.

  • Shadow Warlock Armor +2 (level 10 item)
  • Gloves of Eldritch Admixture (level 8 item)
  • Iron Armbands of Power (level 6 item)
  • Rushing Cleats (level 7 item)

Power SourcesEdit

  • Arcane: Garrick's fighting style focuses on minute applications of arcane power for both attack and defense.
  • Infernal: A sideproduct of the style he learned, part of his power comes from an unholy source.
