Description: Baragh is a tall and amazingly handsome dark elf, with fine features, sharp sweeping ears, and fierce red eyes. He wears clothing striped with black and gray, and a loose black cloak embroidered with gray drow runes. His holy symbol of Vhaeraun is worn prominently around his neck.
History and Personality: Born the eldest son of a matron mother in a major drow city, he was raised to serve Lolth and consider himself a worthless male. Publically acknowledged as a fighter, his family kept his sorcerous talents hidden in case they might be useful as a secret weapon. At the age of 150 he met a cleric of Vhaeraun, who told him of the other drow deities and exposed the fallacy of Lolth's matriarchy. Baragh began to secretly worship Vhaeraun, and two years later he betrayed his mother and fled with over a hundred slaves and warriors of his house whom he had convinced to follow him. His large band worked as mercenaries, fearing retaliation from his family for years, and eventually stumbled upon an isolated pocket of the Underdark near the surface world where his people could settle. Baragh is now a "baron" of a small town of dark elves, feared and respected by his followers. His advisor is Gelroos, the cleric of Vhaeraun that originally shattered his world.
Baragh suffers no worshipper of Lolth within his town. Any that are caught are given the chance to worship Vhaeraun, and if they refuse, they are slain. Born a noble, he expects obedience from his followers, but having been exposed to the cruelty and abuse of his spider-worshipping family, he is a decent ruler that treats his people with an even hand.
If he has time before a battle, he removes his armor and casts prepartory spells on himself to avoid the chance of arcane spell failure. Against foes he is confident of defeating, he eschews spells entirely or risks arcane spell failure. Otherwise, if pressed, he uses his Still Spell feat to prevent his spells from being ruined by casting in armor.
