Alan the Adventurer

Alan Deruthas

"For those who have never met me, I was of a small stature, like many of my folk on Endaman, so the humans simply towered over me. They called me a 'dwarf', to which I asked if they had ever encountered my kind before. One of the humans said something into the ear of another. Somehow this whispered phrase was humorous to him, and soon we were all laughing."   ~Alan the Adventurer, Tales of Discovery on Earth

  • Apparel & Accessories

    He was fond of dark, earthy colours as far as clothing was concerned.

  • Morality & Philosophy

    He was predominantly of a good character, but he was infamous in the Gratic Empire for his mistreatment of some Hayim prisoners during the Red Rose War. He denied this.

    Personality Characteristics


    He would often be very motivated by adventure; it's the reason he travelled to Earth in the first place, as it was unexplored by the central magical culture in those days.

    Savvies & Ineptitudes

    Rudimentary testing indicated strong Affinity with Earth magic, but his passion was Illusion.

    Religious Views

    Alan went to Dwarven ceremonies all the time as a youth, but after leaving his hold did not attend such ceremonies again.

    Social Aptitude

    Although he had a celebrated confidence, he was in actuality rarely seen in public - presumably by choice.
