Zul grew up under the care of his parents, always terrified of what might happen to him if he were to stray too far. He was fiercely loyal to them and never strayed too far from home.
As he got older, he tired of the regimented lifestyle. He wanted to see the world, to explore and see the many wonders of Grabisco. His parents were reluctant to let him go, but they knew that he was becoming independent.
For a short time, he was content to stay home, but the desire to adventure grew stronger and stronger until he felt like he couldn’t survive another day. He set out to explore the world, and now Zul sees that he can’t live without the thrill of adventure.

The wood elves of the Autumn Grove live in the wilderness, far from the cities and towns of the human races. They believe that all of nature can be destroyed in the wake of human greed and folly. Some elves, including Sarsaparilla, believe that they are the only hope for the future of the natural world. Sarsaparilla, however, is not a typical elf. She is a hermit and a recluse and is often seen as crazy by other elves. She is also the only elf known to have a spirit animal.
Sarsaparilla is the first to tell you how other people see her. She’s believes that the people who believe she’s crazy are crazy, and the people who don’t are crazy. She has no interest in making friends and is constantly travelling throughout the kingdom of Grabisco, preaching the great and powerful Jabajaba. She knows that she is on a quest that is bigger than herself, and although she has seen many setbacks, she will not stop until she has finished her mission.

She wears loose-fitting robes and at all times carries a small satchel with a variety of useful herbs and potions.

They were respected in the village, so much so that when Aonara was a student in her elementa school, she was chosen to be an initiate druid of the Order of the Tenfold Leaf. She was ecstatic, and for the next several years, she studied healing and the ways of nature, eventually becoming a full-fledged druid.
She traveled throughout the continent, tending to the needs of the common folk.

Born in Durga (Grabisco Kingdom)
Aedan Ravenhall was once a well respected priest of the gods in his home of Durga, the capital of the Kingdom of Grabisco. The acolytes of Zan began to question his faith, seemingly out of the blue, and he was forced to flee during the night, leaving behind everything that he knew and loved.

He still leads his flock, now congregating in a small village in the forest that’s not far from Durga.
Aedan is a very devout man who prays to all the gods with the utmost reverence; however, he is not a fan of cleric of Zan. He is very blunt and has a few harsh words for priests of Zan, but he will not stoop to the usual rhetoric. He is a fair and just man and tries to follow the word of the gods. He is a man of action who is always thinking ahead, although he is concerned about the future of his daughter, Lorien.

Born in Xamanagore (Grabisco Kingdom)
Vani was born to a wood elf druid. She grew up in the lush forests of Xamanagore, learning the ways of the druid from her father. She was a curious young elf and found herself wandering off to explore the rest of the realm. It was on one of her family’s excursions that she was captured and sold into a life of slavery. Her master was a cruel man, but she felt that she had to put up with the abuse and the boredom.
She prayed to the Nature Spirits and begged them to give her a way to escape. The chance came when her master’s daughter fell ill. Vani helped to care for the girl with the aid of a traveling healer. She slipped out of the manor and ran to the palace to summon the healers once the girl died. As a reward for her assistance, the king granted her her freedom, allowing her to return to her druidic life.

Nargis – Male Orc Druid
STR 10 INT 10 WIS 10 DEX 10 CON 10 CHA 11
Born in Faun (Grabisco Kingdom)
Nargis was born among the Orcs in the Fauns of the Kingdom of Grabisco. They are a proud people, viewing themselves as superior to outsiders. They tend to keep to themselves, using their remote location to keep from being bothered by anyone else. The tribe had a tradition of hunting and killing the priests of the Land of Light.
Eventually, they were overrun and massacred by a team of priests and paladins led by a paladin from the Kingdom of Grabisco. Nargis was the only one who survived. The paladin, a Halfling named Devlin, took pity on the young Orc and took him in. Over the years, Nargis watched Devlin’s faith deepen, and eventually he was baptized.
Devlin taught the young Orc everything he knew about the Church of Beldaroon and the ways of paladins. Nargis wants to find his place in the world and carry on his adopted father’s work.
Nargis can be best described as having a soft heart. He’s gullible and easily manipulated. If somebody offers him an opportunity, he jumps on it. He’ll help a friend without expecting anything in return so long as it’s the right thing to do. He’s very trusting, but he’s learned that his trust is sometimes misplaced. It’s taken a toll on him, and he’s more cynical as a result.
Nargis has black hair and dark eyes. He dresses in loose fitting robes with a small, golden crucifix pinned to the neck. His armor is dark and nondescript.
Start of Character:
Nargis has decided to adventure throughout the Kingdom of Grabisco and beyond, intent on continuing in his adopted father’s (Devlin) footsteps.

M’gron was an obedient child, but he was never really interested in the faith. Though he practiced the religious rituals, he did not believe in the Gods.
As he grew older, he felt no strong calling to worship the Gods and decided to leave Jorganor. He traveled to the east where he hoped to find new people with whom he could make a new life. During his travels, he encountered a group of people who secretly worshiped the God Zan instead of the others he had known.
He was immediately struck by the beauty of their faith and sought to learn more about their ways. Eventually, he joined the acolytes of Zan. At the age of eighteen, M’gron was given the task of leading a group to scout out the land of Grabisco. He was successful and reports that the land is rich in resources and life. He asks that you join him to learn more about their ways and to share the life that they have built.
M’gron is a very patient and observant person. He is able to put his own life on the line in order to save the lives of others, and not many people do this. His love of adventure keeps him from being overly serious about mundane things. He is emotionally reserved but warm, though he can be a bit lost in his own thoughts.
