Blood in the River
Lord of Varnhold
In life Maegar had short chestnut brown hair kept in a way that appeared to be unkempt, as the ladies thought it makes him look ‘rugged’, and kept a neatly trimmed beard.
In death, most of his flesh has rotted away, leaving a cracked skull with ghastly bits of hair and beard left clinging to bone. A frightening purple glow burns from inside his eye sockets. His golden brown platemail was decorated with a two-headed firebird design painted in an orange-red hue- now the image is faded and tarnished.

He now serves his master’s interests, stationed in the Stolen Lands waiting for further orders.
