Bolas

Male human Wizard 3, Master Specialist 2 (focused conjurer)
CN Medium humanoid (Ulfen), age 36
Deity: Brisane
Bolas is a middle aged human, slightly taller than average, and slightly heavier. In normal circumstances he would probably be considered of average appearance, however Bolas has terrible scars down the left side of his face, and he also walks with a slight limp, also on the left side. The scars on his face make talking a little difficult, since the skin does not streatch properly, and together with the limp, give him an unsettling appearance.

Anyone who spends time with Bolas will realise that he has a lot of experience at sea, and is knowledgeable about ships and sailing. He is also noticiably strange, maybe crazy, and sometimes does not appear to realise that he is not on board a ship at any particular moment. He is sharp spoken, and might once have been a leader of some sort. People who start fights in the Grey Prince also know that Bolas is not above wanding into a frey with fists and curses flying.

Bolas came to Sandpoint about 2 years ago, after a fierce storm of the coast, and a number of other new people have been seen about town from the same time. Some of them visit Bolas in the Grey Prince, however it could be just that they want some good beer or food, which Bolas has lots of.

Verasians can recognise from his accent that Bolas grew up in the north of Verasia, specifically Brinewall, however he has also done a lot of travelling, and picked up a number of languages and accents along the way.
