Tale of Three - Character Details (bio, description etc)

BIO1: Human Fighter/Rogue
BIO2: Let's do it my way


Berta was never what you might call pretty, and certainly not to her face unless
you'd got a good start on her.  Not plain, by any means - takes after her mother
in that regard, and Mary Roth got all the attention she ever wanted.  But ...
she favours leathers over silk dresses and those red tresses of hers are rarely
touched by either hairdresser or brush.  Got more muscle and bulk on her than
is considered proper for a woman too, least so her mother told her and told her
- in these parts if you see a man or a woman with a sword at her hip, you damn
well asssume he or she knows how to use it and keep a civil tongue in your head
if you know what's good for you.

Might easily mistake her for a boy, come to that, for she swears and swaggers
like one.  I'd keep that to myself if I were you, though - she's no killer, not
like some we get around here, but she has a temper on her and more than one
bravo deep in his cups has been sent sprawling and earned a few bruises into
the bargain.

Wears good leather boots, leather breeches, belt and linen shirt, with leather
gloves and a good thick woollen cloak with a hood, to keep the chill out.

BIO1: Dapper looking
BIO2: Bard / Cleric


Short and slightly built, Wyn sports longish blonde hair and has a well trimmed moustache and a small patch of beard on his chin.  Everything is neatly trimmed, but look closely and you can see that the rest of his face is as smooth as a girl’s and he doesn't need to shave.

He is always neatly dressed (stylish but not OTT) and generally wears a hat or bandanna to keep his hair under control.

It is only when he takes his hat off that you might be able to glimpse slightly pointed ears that imply that he isn't completely human.



BIO1: Half orc, half ranger,
BIO2: half sorcerer?

Gedd's half-orc heritage is fairly obvious in his facial features but fortunately not enough to make him ugly. He is solidly built, 6'2" tall and wears the hard-wearing clothes typical among woodsmen. The composite longbow he generally carries would be the envy of any huntsman after four-legged game but the longsword at his side suggests he would be equally capable of dealing with two-legged foes if necessary. However he also has a pet raven that he seems unusually fond of. It is generally either perched on his shoulder or somewhere nearby.

 Gedd is the son of Mrs Mary Roth (Nee: Marayne duFeu - Now: Sister Mary.) Marayne
 was a pretty, vivacious young lady but not particularly clever. She loved to party
 and fell pregnant after a brief liaison with an elf. The family swung into action
 and a quick marriage with a junior officer in the Town Watch, called Nathaniel Roth,
 was arranged. So, the duFeu family had a half-elf son Wyn and human daughter Roberta
 (otherwise known as Berta) before the shock arrival of a half-orc bastard son.

 Not surprisingly, the relationship between Nathaniel and Marayne changed. Nathaniel
 was eventually promoted to Captain of the Watch but took to drink as well. Wyn was
 apprenticed with the church. Berta was more of the warrior son that Nathaniel
 always wanted but she has a wild side as well. Mary Roth spent more and more time
 with the Sisters of Minor Mercies and now lives inside the cloisters of the convent
 as Sister Mary.

 The name Gedd is about the only thing the Captain ever gave him, actually. Drunk as a
 lord one night he took one look at the boy's unmistakable features and gave him the
 name that has stuck ever since.

 "Geddoudanstayoud!" Which he usually just shortened to "Gedd!" after that, and most
 folk outside the family just know him as Gedd the Gardner.

 The gardener and his wife (the family's cook) gave him shelter when he literally
 wasn't allowed back in the house (at least when the Captain was at home). They
 basically became his foster family and of course he learned enough skills from
 the gardener to help him in his work as well. As good, loyal servants they also
 made sure that Gedd didn't harbour any resentment against the rest of my family
 despite the Captain's attitude to me. He was the only villain in Gedd's life and
 the rest of the family deserved any help and protection he could offer.

 Ranger were skills partially learnt from the gardener and his friends - woodsmen,
 game-keepers, poachers, even a proper ranger or two - but sorcerer skills just
 slowly developing without any sort of formal training, just a few glimpses of
 Grandma duFeu's skills to spark a youngster's curiosity and start him experimenting
 and practicing a few neat tricks.

 Grandma duFeu never openly showed me any of her arcane skills but when she came to
 visit she always did like to go out to the garden or the woods nearby to be alone
 when she thought no one else was around. But those were Gedd's favourite hiding spots
 as well, so sometimes he did get to watch as she did the most marvellous things with
 lights and candle flames and all sorts of things. As a child he always believed she
 never knew he had seen her but later he did wonder if that was really true. He knows
 she saw him at least once trying to imitate what he had seen her do. He might have
 imagined her smile at that moment - he was never quite sure.

 The raven duNoir was given to Gedd several years ago as a gift by Grandma duFeu. It
 already spoke Orcish but learned to swear fluently in Orcish thanks to the efforts
 of Gedd's older brother and sister. It became his familiar when his sorcerer powers
 reached maturity.

 Gedd has an heirloom item - a masterwork composite longbow (+2 strength bonus).
 It was given to Gedd by his maternal grandfather Sir Robert DuFeu, who is something
 like 70 years old and living in comfortable retirement in a city some distance away.
 The gift came after the death of Grandma duFeu, who had a soft spot for Gedd as he
 seems to have inherited a little of her talent as a sorceress. Who knows, maybe
 there was something else among her possessions more suitable for a sorcerer that
 she left to Gedd in her Will but Grandpa isn't convinced that half-orc bastard Gedd
 is worthy of it yet, so the bow is a compromise to ease the old man's conscience.
 At 70 years old he is no longer strong enough to pull that bow, anyway.
 Gedd wouldn't be aware of any of that, though.

 Gedd would be very worried if the family home is being sold off by the Captain. His
 foster mum and dad will have lost their livelihood as well. He'll need to earn enough
 money to support both of them as well as himself, unless he can find an untenanted
 patch of land somewhere they can set up a new life for themselves.

 Gedd was very excited as a youngster when he first heard about the Arcane Archers.
 He already loved archery and practiced every day, so for months he dreamed that one
 day he might become one too. He was absolutely devastated when someone told him that
 only those of elven blood can become Arcane Archers. He knows it is an impossible
 dream but somehow he has never completely given up hope.


 Things the DM can incorporate into adventures and rumors.

 I wonder who Gedd's half-orc father really was? Might even have been more orc than
 half-orc, though I hope not. I wonder if mum really knew the truth about him?
 Gedd is not particularly religious but if he does pray to anyone it is more likely
 to be Mielikki - the Lady of the Forest, goddess of forests, dryads, and patron of
