Girruth Stormhammer

Girruth Stormhammer 
A dwarf barbarian wearing scale armor and carrying a large shield and a waraxe. 
Gir is tall for a dwarf, around 5'6", and heavily muscled appearing almost as wide as he is tall. His beard is close cut and his head is shaved. He is heavily tattooed with various dwarven runes on both arms and up the sides of his neck to his jawline. He has a faded scar running across his face from the top of his head, across his right eye, and over his nose to the left corner of his mouth. Numerous scars on his forearms, some partially covered by tattoos and some cutting through other tattoos. Loose pants and heavy boots with steel covered toes cover his lower body. His arms are bare with the exception of a pair of heavily engraved metal bracers and he is wearing a thick golden ring on his left hand engraved with elven script.

Rose Springdawn

She is a Samsaran Magus crunch wise. The young girl before you, a hand shy of six foot, stands with her hands clapsed before her, head downturned. Well kept black hair rests tied behind her head by a blue ribbon at her neck, going down to her waist. Two thick handfuls instead stream down her front, hiding her face behind it. Peering closer, behind the black strands, her face can be seen a pale coloring as though she is ill. Then realization dawns and it becomes clear her skin is actually a pale blue in color, make-up applied to give it a more natural appearance. As you scrutinize this, she looks up, giving another shock. Her eyes are a solid white color, though it almost seems as though they focus on you. The white orbs quickly look away under your scrutiny. Pulling your gaze back, she dresses in simple clothing. An earthtone tunic, long in sleeve and neck, with another shirt of links of chain on top of that. Simple trousers, matching the tunic, and sturdy black boots help round out the outfit. Surrounding her waist is a simple leather black belt with a steel buckle, on her left hip is a sheathed sword with a strange pouch dangling from her belt giving off an odd aroma of smells. Both of her hands are gloved, dyed black cotton, leaving no skin showing. The last part of her outfit is the long hooded black cloaks she wears, easily able to surround her.
Khodai the Black

He ended up being an Inquisitor/Magus (blackblade)/Anti-paladin, 20/20/20. 
He followed Hextor, and used a large bastardsword (blackblade). 
He had dark tones for a half giant, red eyes and white hair, almost charcoal skin. He wore mithral full plate, glammered to have a more imposing look. Almost everything he owned had the symbol for hextor on it. 
Khodai the Black was what he was called.

Friday, July 27, 2012


had probably been considered beautiful once, before whatever had happened to her occurred; her appearance looked to have once been fair and strong, if perhaps a little taller than some might have preferred. Her hair is slightly wavy, full and long, hanging down to the middle of her shoulderblades, and of a deep blood red so dark it seems almost black. Her skin is a dark brownish red in shade, visibly scarred and burnt over all, riddled with breaks and cracks, the whole of it reminiscent of a barren wasteland, scorched and broken by the heat of a relentless desert sun; her face bears the reddish shade and scalded texture of the rest of her body, but has been spared the riddling cracks and breaks that much of the rest of her suffered. Her teeth are black, and not at all human in shape, seeming more like fangs. The top of her head is oddly shaped: where her forehead should end it instead rises in a row of small yellowish bony spines, forming a natural crown of horns that holds her hair up and away from her face, though a few stray locks have managed to find their way down regardless. A star-shaped scar stands out vibrantly, slightly darker than the rest of her skin, in the center of her forehead. Her ears come to slight points, and have scars that suggested they had been pierced, despite lacking any adornment now. The sclera of her eyes are entirely black, veined with pale yellow rather than the expected red, with irises of a darker yellow-gold that seems to glow slightly on its own and pupils that are not the expected empty black but rather orangish-red like her eyes had been filled with fire.
She seems to be more wiry strength than raw muscle, toned and fit but not bulky. Her appearance is for all other purposes that of a human traveler in her late twenties or early thirties, save her hands - her fingers end in small white claws each approximately half an inch long and wickedly sharp. A star-shaped scar, exactly mirroring the one on her forehead, adorns the palm of her left hand.
Karish dresses in the garb of a traveler or adventurer. She wears a simple grey tunic, light blue denim traveling pants and comfortable brown mountain boots with thick leather soles. All of her clothing shows at least some wear from long use and time on the road, though it seems to remain in overall still good condition. Over her normal clothing she wears a suit of steel chainmail, overlaid with a black vest that has a few pockets for stray or useful small objects. At her wrists she wears bronze bracers, a small inscription or maker's mark of a cat and a falcon standing side-by-side adorns the one on her left hand just before the wrist. In her right hand she weilds a halberd, currently held with blade end pointed at the ground and the haft passing behind her.
She stands facing slightly to the left, head turned to look at the observer, left hand extended out towards them with hand bent back, palm out to show the star brand. Her halberd in her other hand points down at the ground, its haft passing behind her. An aura of fire surrounds the weapon's head and haft up to her hand, as well as both her arms up to her elbows. This glyph is drawn on the ground around her feet.

He is 5'11" and of a athletic build not bulky from years spent ranging. He has a handsome square-jawed face with a short beard which he uses in attempt to cover a deep, old scar down the left side of his face. His hair is thick, shaggy and blond at about shoulders length.
He wears old and an oft repaired studded leather tunic of faded black (nearly grey from years of washing, repair and wear) shirt and trousers; he carries a large sword (Great sword) and a longbow slung at his back. All of his equipment is left over from previous rangers and is well looked after and well treated.
He is a fairly happy go lucky type and is usually quick to laugh and share a joke, always having at least a half smile on his face.

Captain Janessa

I just had to try the captains quarters but obviously I have to do a lot more background Illustrations.

About 5’10”, wiry with signs of muscle tone. 
‘Soft’ rounder/oval face, sharp-ish nose 
Green/blue eyes, thick-ish eyebrows 
Impish grin 
Dark brown hair, just past shoulder-length, curly and chaotic. Perhaps in a pony-tail that refuses to stay bound. Also a braid or two, with sea shells, animal bones, feathers, etc, woven in. 
Long, slender fingers 
Breasts are on the smaller size, and amount of cleavage is left to the artist. 
Parrot familiar [blue and yellow plumage, older bird and missing some feathers] 
Cutlass with a pommel in the shape of a skull [It's the Tidewater Cutlass, if you have the Skulls & Shackles Adventure Path Book 1] 
Regular pistol in belt 
Leather belt with kraken buckle 
Barefoot, ankle jewelery (coral anklets, etc) 
Pants with bottoms rolled up, white sailor’s shirt 
Tricorne hat [black, weather-beaten and salt-stained] 
Right arm has shark bite scars 
Right upper arm has tattoo of a Megalodon [Dire Shark] 
Left upper arm has tattoo of a giant squid 
Upper Arm jewelery (coral, gold, leather, etc) 
No earrings. 
Leather and coral choker with Besmara holy symbol (skull and crossbones) 
Amulet made of human bones around neck 
Magical leather Bracers of Armor. The left Bracer has a dagger in a forearm sheath

If you really, really want to go crazy. Her ship is called the Sudden Departure, it's a three masted sailing ship, and she has converted her Captain's Quarters into a grove, with shallow-rooted fruit trees, berry bushes, and a vegetable garden.

Kimiko Kaijitsu

Kimiko Kaijitsu – Gunslinger (Musket Master) / Rogue (Sniper) 
17 years old, blue-green eyes, Human of Tian (Japanese) descent 
5’3” tall with a small frame typical of Tian women, but still some curve. Has a stubborn and feisty personality from growing up in the shadow of her older sister Ameiko. The face I see when I picture her is of Ellen Wong (played Knives in Scott Pilgrim vs the World).

Kimi has a style all her own that is somewhere between a pirate, a gunslinger, and a gypsy. She wears her pants comfortable but well-fitting, with a long-sleeved shirt under a fitted vest and a bright multicolored sash at the waist (blues, greens, and purples). Boots are knee-high with a low heel (no more than ½ inch, flat not spiked). She wears a bandolier with many pouches (think adventurer’s sash from Seekers of Secrets) to hold her various musket ammo and gear. She also wears a light, sleeveless, duster-type coat that falls to about knee-length. Leather bracers cinch up the shirt at her forearms so she doesn’t catch it when loading, and she wears a pair of light fingerless gloves to protect her hands without losing tactile senses for finer tasks.
The musket itself is nearly as long as Kimiko is tall - approx to her shoulder or a little shorter (no less than ¾ her own height). I almost see the length as semi-comical for those who initially see her carrying the rare weapon, and then the laughing stops when she applies her skill with it. She also carries a rapier and has a knife in one boot.
Born on the day of the Swallowtail Festival, Kimi has become a fan of butterflies and wears a small set of glass and wire butterfly earrings with a matching choker necklace. She wears her hair just above shoulder length, layered and with purple streaks. When out ‘adventuring’, she wears a head scarf to keep it neat (think something along the lines of a Varisian head scarf, without any coins).

Midori Aoi

Her pale skin has a very slight blue hue that sets of and enhances her expressive eyes. Eyes that reflect the hardships undergone, whilst showing a playful and flighty nature. As the shadows play across her elegant features her eyes take on a sapphire cast. Her seraphic face is framed by a swathe of thick silvery hair that curls down her back to rest on the small of her back. Her svelte body gracefully flows across the floor, hinting at the danger in her attractive frame.
She wears sleeveless scale mail, that channels the air elements blowing her long hair around her. Down each arm a snake tattoo wraps around, the head in the palm of her hand. Long thigh-high black boots, which just expose a winged serpent tattoo upon her legs.
On her hip is a long elven curved-blade (katana), jade hilted with no guard.

Friday, July 20, 2012


she has been thru many custume changes. So I'll go with the latest. Yes it is completely slutty...but she just has been thur a bad break up...and is trying to attract a mate. She is a intelligent wolf turned into a human and has very little understanding of human culture...anyway enough back story.
She is young pretty girl with straight blond hair that goes about to the mid back. Her eyes are the only thing unusual about her appearence being canine yellow. Her current custume is a black skirt with black fishnet stockings. Her top is a black leather corset with a black leather high heel low boots and wears fingerless gloves and has claws. She is a wolf shamen that cast spells...or if you could have a ghostly image of a wold in the drawing that would be great.

Akilah Swiftfoot

is a 20 year old Natural Lycanthrope Crossblooded Sorcerer. Her bloodlines are Elemental (Air) and Draconic (Silver). I would love to see both her human and her were-serval forms if possible. The descriptions will be more of when she's manifested elements of her bloodlines.
Their facial structures are very similar, but Akilah's hair is a silvery white. She also has freckles reminiscent of her Serval form, and some very light silver dragon scales mixed in with her pale human skin. Her eyes are an icy blue color. She does not have a tail nor does she have wings. Her hands have become a bit claw-like at the fingertips. I have contemplated on whether or not she has small silver dragon-like horns. I can leave that up to you if you feel it fits her image.
For her hybrid form, Akilah is a were-serval, though her fur has become silver instead of the tawny color of a normal serval. All the black markings remain (including the four arching spots she has on her forehead as her signature spot pattern. There is otherwise no set spot pattern elsewhere). Her eyes are the same icy blue as her human form. For her hair, its more or less intermixed with the fur along the back of her head and neck, and it is also silver in color.
General personality and clothing:
She's extremely inquisitive, and has a bit of a sarcastic streak when it comes to humor. While growing up, she was known for pulling pranks on her mentor and had disliked reading. This has changed quite a bit as she began adventuring (she is absolutely fascinated by dragons, which have not been seen for centuries in her world, and that was before she found out she has dragon blood). For clothing, she tends toward more earthy colors and wears no shoes in her hybrid form. Her clan is from a forest that borders the desert, so that gives a bit of an idea on the sort of clothing she prefers. She is not afraid to get her hands dirty, fighting both in melee with her claws, and with her magic at both close and far ranges. She does have a spellstoring dagger, but its more for her human form than when she is in hybrid form. She spends most of her time in hybrid form unless she is in town.

Nicos Lebeda

A tiefling Bladebound Kensai. He is albino, with shoulder length bright white hair. He is in his late teens, tall and slim, with completely red eyes (no white at all) with slitted pupils. His horns are very small, not actually breaking the skin on his forhead, more like subdermal implants (Reference), and he usually attempts to hide them with his hair. He is the illegitimate son of an envoy to Cheliax from Brevoy, and his father doted on him (until his death) so he carries himself in a manner that tends to come off as arrogant to others. His only real signature items are his battered pewter mug that denotes him as a follower of Cayden and his fathers Aldori Dueling Sword which is also his Black Blade. It has a damascus steel blade with a swan (the symbol of his fathers house) for the pommel. His clothing should be plain and worn but clean, with no armor.

Xane and Vincenzo

Xane is a sentient skeletal warrior, usually in tattered shirt and pants, and wields a halberd. His eyes are always a nebulous blue, with a brighter blue in the center.

Vinny (Vincenzo) is a kobold dressed in pirate finery, and a devilish grin. He dual wields a rapier and dagger, but rarely draws first. A real lady's man....er humanoid.

They are the main characters of the Xane Webcomic. :)

Monday, July 16, 2012


A seasoned military man who has taken up work as a mercenary. Danny has an average build with dark features, his signature weapon is a heavy crossbow which is used to great effect at long range. His armor consist of nothing more than a old stitched up cloth uniform from his military days. Danny is based on modern special forces as inspiration.

Das ist mal wieder ein Bild das ewig gedauert hat bis ich es endlich in Angriff genommen habe. Schon Weihnachten hatte ich auf Deviantart versprochen eine Illustration dieser Kriegerin umzusetzen. Sie wurde schon von zahlreichen Künstlern interpretiert.


a dwarven barbarian/inquisitor of Besmara (the pirate goddess) named Chumbeard. He will have two peglegs, a hook hand, and an eyepatch. Armed with a boarding (battle)axe. Was called to Besmara when he fell overboard during a shark feeding frenzy and managed to survive.

Dr. Virgil Halifax

Synthesist Summoner; middle-aged half-elf from Cheliax.
Hair: short, greased back, brown and graying, trimmed goatee ;
Eyes: violet-blue, reading glasses.
He tends to wear high-brow suits (usually three pieces and tails) along with a bowler-style cap. He wear a look of kindness, but the bags under his eyes reveal more of the loneliness and horror he's seen. As he tips his hat, he reveals the bastard in his bloodline, transforming into his eidolon, a monstrous winged ape-like demon. In this form, he has beady eyes under a heavy brow and tusks that jut forward in an under-bite. his skin seams almost like stone; the veins in his immense arms could be confused with cracks in his obsidian palor.

I was thinking of him tipping his hat in the foreground and his eidolon behind (Large size) signifying the transformation. 

Rurik of Clan Delver

Rurik has black hair and green eyes. His mustache and beard are kept neatly trimmed and is beard is braided so that it requires but a single silver beard clasp to keep it secured. His beard hangs approximately 2/3 of the way down his torso. The beard clasp depicts Ruriks' makers mark of an anvil with hammer standing on its handle in front of the anvil. His face is scarless.
Rurik is in peak physical condition with barely an speck of fat on him. He is barrel chested and does not have the belly so many other dwarves do. When he is not wearing his armor he is dressed normally in an solid colored shirt that laces at the neck. He wears dark colored pants and wears black boots that turn down just below the knee. He wears a silver tipped black belt with an adjustable chest strap, with a silver buckle, that crosses his chest from the left hip to the right shoulder. The chest strap allows him to wear his Urgrosh secured on his back. He has a silver tankard that hangs on his right hip. A belt pouch is worn on the right hip behind the tankard.
The Dwarven Urgrosh that he carries with him at all times is an ancient weapon bearing his clans ancient crest of an anvil with a crossed hammer and mining pick.
Rurik's armor is self made dwarven battle plate. The helmet does not have any horns on it and open around the eyes. The armor is crafted from the finest steel available and quite heavy. The armor is finished so as to cause minimal light reflection.

Lyrysa Shadowhisper

She is an evil elven enchantress. Light skinned (almost pale), long silver colored hair (waist length, flowing), dark purple eyes (Golarion Elf style).
Style of dress would be seductive in nature, feel free for creative license on this and modify it. What I picture is a lowcut top, sleeveless but long gloves, with a skirt long in back, just above the knees in front, split on both sides. Boots coming up to around the knees. A gold chain belt surrounds the waist with a golden tiara, a gem in the middle at her forehead. Rings on fingers. A sword (either Longsword or Rapier) can hang from her side if you want to include it, though mostly decorative.

Kethil Wyvernsbane

Kethil stands 5'8". Her parents are a Desert Elf and a Vampyrri Human(like a dhampir). Her father is currently the avatar of the deity of fate. Her mother is the daughter of the avatar of the deity of Fire, who for some reason is a succubus that is good aligned. She became smitten with a cleric of that same deity and started working on getting him. She is very wealthy and so tends to wear only the finest materials. 

Through an adventure in an abandoned temple she took up being a cleric of a water god by the name of Nereus. His symbol is a wave forming a cutlass. She commissioned her Holy symbol to be made out of amethyst, sapphire and aquamarine to fit the theme and his colors. 

She has somewhat pale skin, black hair and amethyst eyes. Her succubus heritage seeps out in her beauty and ability to charm males if she wishes. She generally prefers to wear a dress and tends to wear Nereus' colors now. His colors are ocean blues and purples. She wears her hair down, but in a style that keeps it out of her face in battle. She wields a cutlass and has a whip for when she does not want to get in close. 


 is a human synthesist with the appearance of a classical roman angel. He Stands 6' tall with shoulder length red hair and green eyes. Build wise, he is, again, classical roman / greek with strong features and well defined proportions.
When fused, he appears to be wearing silver and gold Lorica Squamata i.e. Roman scale armor. No helmet is worn. He will also manifest white dove wings.

In armament he differs from the typical roman image, carrying a mithral Daisho. 

Sigfried de Aragon

Dark clothing with a symbol of a 5 headed dragon, Tiamat on the chest. He wields a massive two handed flail, and is much more draconic/reptilian looking, with an elongated snout, prominent teeth, and much coarser, dark brown (near black) scales.

'Monty' Amontillado is a half-elf rogue big on muscle and big on charm.
The sort of roguish bad-boy that all the mother warned their daughters about, Monty looks like a romance novel cover model come to life.

Had he been born on Earth instead of Golarion, his dark and swarthy looks would give clear indication of his mothers Italian ancestry, offset with some of the finer features of his fathers Elven blood.

His hair is raven black in colour, from the slicked back and tied into a long plait.

His looks are dark and smouldering, handsome, but definitely bad-boy in nature...

TLDR - Ultimately he's a pretty physical guy, a Rogue Thug with big Str and a very respectable Cha stat (and the Charming trait). He's half elven, dark hair, dark features, has an elven curve blade, and is generally a well dressed Sczarni - well dressed medieval mafiosa. His chain shirt is masterwork.

I guess for 'dark and smouldery looks' you might consider the Jake Gylenhaal Prince of Persia, or just look for any bodice ripper romance novel with 'pirate' or 'rogue' on the cover - its all swarthy looks and 5 o'clock shadows on chisel jaws and flashy biceps under manly (yet elegant) eyebrows with smouldery eyes.

Jorrah Mermont

the Grey Headhunter. He is a human fighter, and he wears full plate armor and uses a great sword. Being in his 40's his once dirty blonde hair is greying now and his face is showing his battle scars now. His armor shows once fine crafted knightly design, but has since aged hard like its wearer. With his massive sword he is lucky if he doesn't remove the upper body along with his targets head.

Sunday, July 8, 2012


(Human Barbarian/Oracle): Ulric stands at an even 6 foot, blond wavy hair flows down to his shoulders, it is keep off his eyes by a simple leather headband. Bright blue eyes look out from a pale and ruggedly handsome face. His long blond beard and moustache are both braided. Ulric body has a thin frame but it is covered with solid muscle and he is able to push all his physical limits when entering a berserker rage. His long legs can carry him with swift and sure strides.
Ulric wears an ornate set of breastplate armor over worn but serviceable travelling clothes made of seal-leather dyed blue and white. The motif on the armor shows a long-ship cresting a wave. Sturdy Whale-fur boots are tied with seal-leather cords.
Ulric carries a long hafted great-axe. The grey steel blade, forged by a master-smith of his homeland, has a similar motif to the armor. A fully stocked backpack and numerous belt pouches allow Ulric to organise his equipment, which can at times be of critical importance.
Despite his formidable appearance Ulric has an easygoing nature and is quick to smile. He is willing to buy everyone drinks and tell them tales of his homeland or his recent adventures. However there is something slightly odd about him, to most people it is just a minor feeling of unease caused by strange noises, odd shifts of breeze or a drop in temperature. To those with The Sight, mostly harmless but sometimes malevolent otherworldly spirits surround Ulric. These are only able to affect the physical world in some minor ways as noted earlier or rearranging Ulric's gear in his backpack. Ulric is, however, learning to tap into this phenomenon as a source of knowledge and power.

Saturday, July 7, 2012


not too picky about the ears per se, just deffinatly elven. standing pretty well straight up with his sword held backhand and behind him with the blade coming up past his shoulder. I like the look of a chinese style sword, the ones that sometimes have tassles or bobbles hanging off of them and a nice straight blade with the last couple inches tapering to a tip. The left hand held up with a spell charge just waiting to blast somebody.

hair should be long and dark flowing out behind his shoulders, with a long coat buttoned up over the chest

Basically a skeleton with black robes and an intelligent item talking witch hat..

Royslydale Glimmerprism Bivinshadow

a.k.a "that Rainbow Gnome".

Originally an Abjurer/Master Specialist/Initiate of the Sevenfold Veil, with a multi-colored theme, favoring spells like Color Spray, Glitterdust, and anything connected to the Prismatic series; Reflavoring spells like Blur, Grease, and Web to fit the theme. A bit gullible and naive, but a staunch defender of the innocent and protector of his companions.
He has a colorful outfit, red boots, orange pants, yellow belt, green shirt, blue vest or waistcoat, a triangular prism pendant around his neck on a indigo chain, and a purple hairband keeping his white hair in check. He has a neatly trimmed white beard, and small round glasses. His cloak has a rainbow oriented vertically, the colors blending into the all white hood near the shoulders.
He wields multicolored light balls with a light crossbow or dagger as a last resorts.

Storm Caller

She's a Shoanti Cleric of Gozreh (Weather and Air (Cloud) domains). She has a round face, a ruddy complexion, and grey eyes. She has a piercing gaze that reflects her cunning and charisma. Her eyes do not sparkle; they flash, like the lightning she commands. Like most Shoanti, she is tattooed; on one side of her face is the holy symbol of Gozreh, a leaf with a drop of water. On the other size of her face is a storm cloud and lightning bolt. Unlike most Shoanti, however, she wears her hair long. Gozreh marked her at birth, and Storm Caller- Kailani at birth- has been training to serve the god since early childhood. Her hair has never been cut. It has been elaborately locked, braided and pined up, and it's decorated with seaweed and small shells.

As warrior training came second to her priestly calling, her build is fairly lean, without visible muscle. Her real talent is the way she can manipulate the wind and call down bolts of lightning. Her clothing is simple and practical; warm furs to keep out the cold, and sturdy, high boots that allow her to walk in deep snow without getting her feet cold or wet. She wears a simple breastplate, and carries a shield and trident (though she keeps them put away most of the time). She also carries healing potions and a healer's kit; someone has to apply the bandages once the storm passes, after all.

Apart from Amiri I also got the Opportunity to contribute the Cover for Wayfinder #7

The Theme was Jervis "Chopper" Stoot. A famous Woodcarver and Serial Killer in Sandpoint who worshiped an evil birdlike Demon.

Cortland Broadcloak

Dark eyes peer from under a wide hat painted with the bright colors of Shelyn. Untidy blonde hair peeks from the sides, and when his head rises you see two clear dueling scars across both cheeks. They are deep and recently healed, still pink with fresh skin. He awkwardly fumbles a bit to push back the hat with a hand missing the two forefingers. He walks a bit off, like he is used to having his weapon balanced on his other hip, and his bright crimson, green and blue armor, seemingly made from some form of bug chitin, does not seem to make his sallow look any better. Not a man to cross, and not a man living a life he thouroughly enjoys.

Amiri - Raging Blood

This is a piece I did recently for Wayfinder #7 a great fanzine with focus on the RPG Pathfinder.

When I first read into Pathfinder I stumbled upon the background story on the iconic barbarian, Amiri. I really loved her Story and decided right there and then to illustrate one of the major moments. Unfortunately I didn't get it on until Tim gave me a really good opportunity with the theme for Wayfinder #7 witch was to illustrate the best of the first years of Pathfinder.

Here's the passage of the Story that inspired this illustration:

"...It was enough. With a roar, Amiri leapt back to her feet. Her rage filled her body, clouded her vision, stole over her soul. Two of the barbarians had been decapitated by her immense sword before they realized that death had come. The battle was swift and brutal, with Amiri not noticing the blows that landed on her, simply stepping from one traitor to the next and cutting them down.

When her rage finally subsided, Amiri realized what she had done. She knew that the hunters had certainly deserved their fates, but they were still kin. That her reasons for murdering them were, to her, valid didn't change the ties of blood. She knew that she had cut those ties, and so she turned her back on the remains, trusting that they would be discovered by another hunting party soon enough..."

Nameless Dwarfen Sorcerer 

He's bald with serpentine dragon tattoos on his scalp that seem to move when no-one's looking (not that that effect can be conveyed, but it a little sorcerer quirk). His right ear is torn at the lobe and cauliflowered on the helix and his left ear has two hoops piercing it (one lobe, one higher up, near the top. His expression is set in a near permanent scowl and a scar crosses his left eye (but doesn't touch it) and vanishes into his beard). His beard reaches to mid-chest. 
His left arm has a pentadactle dragon's claw brand on it. 
Clothing is faily simple, breeches, heavy hobnail boots, a belt with numerous pouches for alchemical items (thunderstones and what not) and a bandoleer of daggers (5) across his chest. His only other clothing is a pair of spiked brass knuckles and some monke-like wrappings to mid-forearm on his hands. He carries a Dwarven waraxe slung across his back (it hooks on the bandoleer). 
He's accompanied by his Badger familiar at all times.
