Rasdon, gnome illuminator Character in Scarterra | World Anvil

Rasdon, gnome illuminator

Son of Minbi the merchant and Saben the merchant, favorite brother of Ragani the gnome Guardian.   Rasdon is Ragani's older "gobiln twin". In other words, Ragani's mother became (somewhat unexpectedly) pregant with Ragani very quickly after Rasdon was born.     Not just close in age, Rasdon and Ragani were closest to each emotionally. They were the youngest in a large family and often did not get as much parental attention as they would have liked. Both had a fondness for books and storytellers, Both had no interest in becoming merchants like their parents though Ragani went through the motions and picked up the basics of the trade while Rasdon did not pick up any mercantile skills at all and is famously bad at math.   Rasdon tries a lot of art mediums as a hobby, but he is an illumintor by trade. He works as a copyist and book binder when paid work making illuminated manuscripts is slow.   He is unwed and childless though he is young enough that this is not odd.
