Bloodright : Rise of the Border Princes
Drew the Avaricious
Unaligned Human Male Bard (Treasure Hunter) – Heroic Level
Drew is a an unassuming, lean, dark and tall man with shaggy dark hair, grey eyes and a stern, though welcoming face. Drew has the constitution of a young man, with boundless energy, and the effacing charm of a true scoundrel.
If Drew has one over-riding trait, it is his search for wealth and status in life. He seeks to acquire wealth enough to build himself a mercenary company capable of carving a place for his dreams among the mountain realms of The Beast Shards. He was well-schooled in his youth by a distant uncle, learning Religion, History, Streetwise and the important trader’s skills of Streetwise, Bluff and Diplomacy. He also learned Arcana and Rituals in his youth.
Raised in his uncle’s household, he worked hard and earned a share of the profits, but turned them over for a cash stake to outfit himself and head to the important trade city of Brightwater – City of Coins. Searching for his future, he hired himself as a mercenary scout in the service of Edensor the Merchant, as he leads a caravan south into the Beast Shards, to reach the fortress of Frandor’s Keep before the snows fly.
Drew has found his perfect position in life. He has settled into the groove of life at Frandor’s Keep, and using his small fortune share through adventuring, invested in several mercenaries. At present, he hawks various goods for adventurers and offers small-scale protection services to visiting merchants, to maintain his troops, while he slowly gathers a small force, intent on bringing their swords into the northern realms of Cygnus – The Swan Kingdom, and carving himself a place of power. He has taken a young lover, Nepra, a local jeweller’s apprentice, and though he might protest otherwise, it seems somewhat serious. It is believed she will accompany him in his spring journey into Cygnus.
