Nysandriel Character in Aegimius | World Anvil


Harbinger of Eternity

The old shop keeper, Nysandriel? What can I say about him really? He doesn't really talk unless we ask him a question, and every answer he gives is short and to the point, a bit rude actually. I mean if he didn't own Bloodbath and Beyond, you'd probably never even know he existed.
— Amnesia Torydark

Nysandriel exudes an air of unremarkableness, purposefully fading into the background, making sure not to draw attention to himself. He keeps his interactions with others to a minimum, speaking only when necessary, and never revealing the depths of his knowledge or the possible extent of his power.

Nysandriel has lived his entire life in the city of Kairau, inheriting the family business from his father Noka. To many in the city he is seen as a rather tactless member of society.

Key Life Events and Accomplishments

Before taking over the shop from his father, Nysandriel had a more adventurous youth. He traveled to far-off lands, delving into ancient ruins and confronting dangers that most would fear to face. These adventures granted him unique knowledge of relics and a deeper understanding of the world's mystical secrets.

During his travels, Nysandriel encountered eldritch beings and enigmatic entities beyond mortal comprehension. Some tales suggest that he was taken under the wing of an ancient being who imparted forbidden knowledge upon him. This mentoring might explain the depth of his expertise and the mysterious aura that surrounds him.
