Season 2 - Characters

November 21, 2014


A former bodyguard from Tor Hea, he spent the early part of his career in the service of a rich duke.  That job ended in tragedy, and sent Dante on a quest that makes him question his role as a body guard and his reason for existing.  The loss of his employer meant his life a body guard was done, and he felt he could no longer stay in Tor Hea.  An expert in shield and one handed weaponry Dante has had no difficulty finding work around Helan-Skaa, but he has not found answers to the questions which plague him at all times.  

He has travelled to Vanamoor Fort looking for work, and hoping that he may find some thread to follow about the men who killed his master.  


Grot is a creature of darkness, both literally and figuratively.  As a 6'6 BugBear it might be hard to imagine Grot as a beast of subtlety, but with his surprising speed and intimate knowledge of the streets Grot is more than capable of appearing out of the night like a deadly shadow.  His upbringing on the streets of Vanamoor have made him cruel and lethal, and he soon garnered the attention of a criminal element in the town.  His ability to quickly and silently dispatch rival gang leaders saw him find a niche in the market as a bounty hunter beyond the law.  Over time the Duke became reliant on Grot's unique skill set and has since put Grot as a more full time hired killer, and the towns executioner.

Grot takes great pride in his work, and if the Duke gives him an opportunity to use his blades Grot will happily accept that invitation.
