, thought lost. He was told to seek the Ardent
as his adventures there will either make him find the scroll or gain wealth to fund an expidition to find it.
Brave is a fast person and will always try his best to perfom well atheletically. He trains every day he can to improve this ability. Brave will not however boast this and has often lost races on purpose as not to upset Mystan Rhogar
after his first victory caused quite the tantrum.
Brave is quite the cook and always cooks food for the team while they are away from base. He cooks with the help of Damu Ubo

Brave isnt a fan of water, or rushing into things. When he was first starting to get to know Alpha Team
) held a party to introduce each other and he found that it pushed him away from the group even further. Brave isn't fond of large social gatherings and would much rather get to know and discuss with people by himself or in small groups.
Brave often disagree's with people who follow faith's outside of the Faerûnian Pantheon
and does so purely because they arent following his faith. This has lead to a number of altercations and arguments from Brave and Alpha Team
will try to hide some peoples faiths from him to stop this.
Brave tries his best to avoid water and will shudder and be very twitchy when touching water. He is much more easily spooked as the feeling of water on his skin puts him on edge. Brave has asked for Alpha Team
to adjust their course to purposely avoid water, but he will interract with water and can cope with water if need be.
Brave is known to be spotted in his room at Ardent Keep
, grooming his fur and skin during his downtime. His shiny skin can be seen in the sun. He can also be spotted in the courtyard, towers, and fields soaking up the sun on lazy warm days.

Brave is a paladin of Torm
and has devoted his life to him. He believes in peace and patience as an oath of redemption paladin. Brave has mentioned his beliefs to contrast and obect much of the brash and reckless decision making of Alpha Team's
leader Mystan Rhogar
Brave has difficulty speaking Common and has some rather strange behaviour and customs he has learnt in Chult
. Despite his difficulty with common he is still rather charasmatic and persuasive when he needs to be.
Whilst his Chultan
mannerism are very obvious, he is still confident in what he says and only speaks when he truly believes what he is saying. He thinks through every word he is saying and will not be spoken over.
Brave, hence the name, is known for his bravery and detirmination. He, is always willing to put his own life before others and will put himself before others in almost every regard. He wont run away without reason and will help anyone who is willing to fight alongside him. His detirmination and drive to fufill the teachings of Torm are very strong and not much will stop him from completing any task he is given and agrees with.
Brave is stubborn especially when it comes to faith and morals. He rarely changes his mind and will only do so with relation to the teachings of Torm. He will listen to other paladins and priests and respects their opinions above anyone elses.
They became aquaintances as they began to work at the Ardent in 1492 DR. Brave kept to himself and didn't open up to anyone outside of Alpha Team untill recently, and has started to work on being friendly to Valna. Valna has always been awkwardly friendly to all her coworkers and Brave has recently tried to reciprocate. This was also helped by the mutual respect earned by fighting side by side during The Battle of Menzoberranzan
They were introduced to one another as Brave began working at the Ardent in 1492 DR. Brave has respect for her, however is weary of her belief in the Seldarine. He still understands her importance in the organisation and her reliability. Sariel recognises his effort in working out and has taken to watching him run, train, and sun bathe on occasion. She appreciaties his ability to be relaxed around her and reliable.
Brave's wealth is rather minimal. He keeps money only to cover things he needs on a weekly basis. He donates the rest of the money he earns to the chuch of Torm and his expedition.
