Rolwaz Character in Elmaloris | World Anvil


Close and trusted friend of Tilkaz, he's a quiet creature who packs quite a powerful punch. Early into adventuring with the half-undead gnoll, he started gaining an interest in body art, in the form of tattooing, and after the pair arrived at Telhoken, he started practicing this craft in full, and actually earned a fair bit of coin in the process.
  Alongside his friend, he fought in Shasys' Rebellion, valiant and powerful though he was, one can never beat the numbers game. Defeated and injured, he departed the battlefield, clutching his friend's phylactery close, tearful for having witnessed her fall in the fray. Taken in and sheltered by the Gravetenders of Elimond, he huddled in the undercroft, tending to his wounds and watching over the ornate box for the week it took for Tilkaz to reform, fiber by fiber.
  Though he recovered, mostly, the injury didn't set right, and over the course of 20 years, the state of his old wounds worsened, leaving him with a slight limp. Gone were his days of adventuring, but, this did allow him to put more focus on the art of tattooing.
