Champion Kazric Szithna
No matter the challenge, no matter the danger, Kazric is up for anything. His courage is enough for the bards to spin legends about him... if, that is, he was willing to tolerate any of their 'pansy shit', and if he'd stop killing half the people he meets. Whilst he might have courage and tolerance of basically anything, he's also incredibly violent, obsessed with drinking (a habit that formed after his death), and in love with both killing and torturing people due to his upbringing. Kazric died after taking a blow for Vanbrute Ironbeard, a dwarven inquisitor who formerly travelled with the party, in a bloody chapel in Port Amarin. He'd previously attacked the party due to orders from his former employer, but wild magic had confused him into thinking the dwarf was a drow, and he'd declared Vanbrute was his 'brother' and switched sides. The party promptly used a scroll of Reincarnate to restore him to life, this time as a half-orc. He was displeased and took to alcohol to recover, but did stay with the party until Vanbrute's departure.
General Physical Condition
Extremely well-muscled and in perfect shape. Various scars from his rough life, though far fewer than were on his drow body. Scars around his neck and back from the brief time he was in drow company in Undria, and deep wounds on his wrist around his Champion mark due to the nature of Shax's mark.
His once-purple skin is now a warm olive-green. He has no particularly standout features that would separate him from a usual half-orc.
His jaw is square, his eyebrows are thick and generally narrowed in either anger, confusion or mock intensity, and his beard is short but well-kept.
He has a secret bellybutton piercing and bears the mark of Shax on his left wrist.
Right-handed, struts like he owns the world. Probably believes he could if he tried.
Standard barbarian abilities.
Apparel & Accessories
Tends to wear whatever looks most intimidating, and doesn't wash his clothes often. This leads to a lot of bloodstains unless Pin can Prestidigitate him.
Wields a greatsword and uses it well, channelling his anger into his strength.
Grew up as a lesser male drow of House Szithna and was trained as an exceptional torturer and fighter. Slew his brothers to prove that he was worthy of working with those outside the Underdark to further Shax's goals and spread fear of their family's name. Worked with Kisten Piscary and Eleanor Samarkand, under his family's orders, as a leader of the Crimson Claw, a bandit group that successfully smuggled hundreds of illicit magical items and creatures into Aletheia before the Shadows noticed and assigned Azyel Lathronon and his party to infiltrate and deal with the threat.
Highly trained warrior.
Accomplishments & Achievements
- Spread fear of the Szithna name throughout Port Amarin and the ships of traders everywhere
- Caught the attention of one of the most powerful mortals in the Underdark and was given a blade in return
- Destroyed an evil creature that threatened the Underdark (and the elves, whatever) with the party
- Became the Champion of Shax, his divine patron
- Saved Vanbrute
Failures & Embarrassments
- Tricked into being mind-controlled by his House
- Manipulated by Drast
Still disturbed by the race-switch. Conditioned to obey female drow no matter what.
He's not amazingly smart. Whilst he's not too dumb, and he can actually be fairly wise if he can be bothered with it, he's never been the brightest. He's more charismatic than anything.
Morality & Philosophy
He loves the thrill of fighting, killing and torturing anyone he sees fit. Whilst travelling with the party has helped him build a better moral centre, he's prone to falling back into old habits, especially with the encouragement his god provides. He's extremely brave and values his freedom very highly, and would not hesitate to take a killing blow for someone he sees as a brother or close friend.
No mind-altering drugs.
Wants to prove he's the best. At what? Anything he feels like!
Savvies & Ineptitudes
Extremely good at torture, interrogation and execution, to the point where the dwarves were willing to use him as a specialist. Also a fantastic fighter. Absolutely horrendous at any game that requires patience.
Likes & Dislikes
Loves alcohol, weaponry, food, murder, torture, sex, darkness, sleep and pain. Very kinky. Hates mind-control, enchantment spells in general, the colour orange, oranges and cowards. Doesn't like elves, half-elves or most dwarves, and mocks half-drow.
Virtues & Personality perks
Courageous, quick to act and very loyal.
Vices & Personality flaws
Addicted to alcohol, quick to anger, and horrendously bad at identifying/resisting manipulative behaviour. Extremely violent, extremely crude.
Horrible at lying. Tends to start playing with his greatsword and threatening people/swearing more when nervous or annoyed.
Pretends to not care about hygiene. Secretly cares a lot... in a different way. Tries to keep himself smelling intimidating and looking like he's had no trouble in a fight instead of trying to keep himself clean and smelling sweet.
