Character Description and History

Vesfious grew up with a pack of lizard men living in The Twilight Marsh on the Moonsea. As he grew up he easily matched his siblings in battle and hunting.

One day a number of the pack was attacked by wolves when the ventured out into the open plains. Vesfious pulled out his rusty blade provided by the clan and slaughtered the pack thus protecting the young who would be the future of the pack.

Even though he was hornoured greatly in the pack, Vesfious wanted more. He challenged the leader of the pack and to everyones surprise he emerged victorious, for the leader, despite his experience was old and slow.

With Vesfious in charge of the pack he hoped to broaden their horizons by invading the territory of man. Vesfious needed to gain knoledge of the tactics and power of man so he lead his pack first to a small tower in the open planes.

As the pack approached the tower they spotted two guards at the door, the place seemed harmless so Vesfious ordered the attack, as the lizards men ran in the guards pulled strange weapons from their belts (crossbows) and shot the first few lizard men down, but as more came the guards fell easily. They smashed the doors and quickly ran into the tower. The guards who spotted them were quickly slaughtered and as they got to the peak of the tower a man dressed in a long red robe who shot fire and lighting from his fingers. Many of the young ran in to kill him hoping to gain honour amd glory among the pack, but they were easliy killed by the red robed figure.

Vesfious pulled out his blade but before he could charge at the stranger he was hit on the head and knocked to the floor, as he looked up he saw a human staring down at him with a sword in his hand, the human saw the the fear in his eyes and walked away to let Vesfious live, from that moment something flickered inside Vesfious and his whole way of life was about to change, he felt that from now on he owed a favour to man.

As he looked up he saw the Lizard shaman hold forth the sacred idol of the clan, a figurine of a lizard. As the shaman held forth the figurine a great lizard appeared and charged at the red robed figure, as the lizard jumped forward it sunk its teeth in to the red robed fugure for his spells could not harm it. As the the red robed figure was killed the battle would soon end.

Fesvious saw the man who had spared his life lying in a pool of blood, Vesfious ran over and picked the man up and ran to a dark corner with him. As vesfious placed the man down the mans head rested against a stone and a secret passage opened, as the man fell inside Vesfious followed just before the passage closed.

Once inside Vesfious tried to save the man but it was no use and he soon died. From that day forword Vesfious vowed to protect any man he came across. As Vesfious searched the secret room he found some studded armour that was light and strong at the same time. He also foung a shining ring that made his hard as stone and two short swords, one with a red blade and another with a blue blade, both shone with the brightest light. As he picked the blades up he found that they felt comfortable in his hands.

As Vesfious escaped the passage he found the tower was empty of lizard men and bounty. Soon Vesfious reached the home of his fellow lizard men and snuck into the home of the tribe shaman. The shaman was asleep and as Vesfious snuck up to him the shamans eyes opened 'Masssst...' the shamans sentance was'nt finished as one of Vesfious' new blades cut his head off with ease.

Vesfious took the lizard figurine and left the camp. As he travelled across the woods, swamps and plains he had killed countless numbers of wild animals. Soon he came to huge city and as he was about to enter countless numbers of armed men ran at him, he was tempted to kill them, or at least try, but he rememberd his vow and ran into the woods. As the days, months and years passed by, Vesfious hid in the woods and protected countless travelers form wild animals, orcs and other beasts and even human bandits who he decided were bad. Some times he even summoned the beast Ghashton to help, but he always disapeared before the men could thank him.

As he climbed the roof tops of the city at night he found that the name of the city was Phlan and he often heard mentioned by passers by or in taverns the tales of a mysterious lizard man, 'The Protector Of Travellers'.
