Born in Yozgad (Kingdom of Grabisco) (Grabisco Kingdom)
Solo was born in the kingdom of Grabisco, an event no one could have predicted. He was the sole survivor of a brutal attack by a man-eating creature known only as the Vulture. This creature came down from the mountains to Yozgad seeking food, and he found it in Solo’s family. The creature murdered everyone, leaving the boy for dead.
He was discovered by a passing healer, taken to her home, and nursed back to health. The healer’s name was Lestara, who was an older priestess of Baba Yaga. Lestara was the only family Solo had left, which ultimately led to him becoming a shadow knight, worshipper of Baba Yaga. Solo’s faith was well rewarded in time, when he received a vision in his dreams.
He was guided by an angel into a church, where he saw the statue of Baba Yaga in the form of a snake. The angel explained that if he would devote himself to her will, she would guide him on the path to redemption for the sins of his parents. Solo allowed himself to be guided by the angel, and once a proper temple was built in the city, he became the first shadow knight in the land of Grabisco.
He took the name of Pox Scarab Scarab because of a small scar on his back from the attack as a child.
Solo is a cold and introverted young man. He has a reputation as a fearsome warrior, but he is surprisingly weak-minded. He doesn’t have a strong sense of morality, and he can be very dishonest.
Solo is a tall man with a large muscled frame. His green eyes seem out of place with his dark skin tone. His horns are nearly as impressive as his hoofed feet. He wears a black cloak with the hood drawn to conceal his face. He carries a large mace, which he uses as a weapon and a shield.

Dorkach’s mother told her that she needed to get stronger so that she would be able to rescue her clansmate.
Dorkach did exactly that, becoming the strongest of her generation. She grew up in the family business, which was selling goods to passersby on the road. Dorkach doesn’t know anything else, so she’s content with life as it is. She likes her life, but it’d be nice to see the world outside of her village.
