Description: Houndaer is a somewhat unattractive
and quiet drow elf (which makes him unremarkable and easily ignored by
human standards). He wears black pants, a dark gray shirt, a black vest,
and dark gray boots, all of which are usually concealed by his threadbare
of blending. He wears no armor, and keeps a short sword on his left
side and a small quiver of wands on his right. He truly becomes animate
when in combat, protecting himself with spells and using either his wands
or his sword against his enemies. He often uses the change self
power of his robe to go about in disguise.
History and Personality: Houndaer was a soldier in a noble house in a southern drow city, and when he was recruited to aid in a teleport-raid on a rival house, he swiped the spellbook from an apprentice he killed during the raid. Determined to figure out the cryptic text in the book, he was suprised to find that learning it came fairly easy to him, and he began studying the Art in secret. After several years of living a strange double life, he fled his house and came to the surface, where he joined with other expatriated drow and furthered his magical studies. He now travels the surface lands looking for unusual magic items and spells to augment his martial prowess, for he still retains a fondness for direct combat, enjoying the surprised looks on the faces of those whom he skewers with his sword after unleashing a fireball.
He normally uses one 1st-level spell slot each day to cast mage armor (reflected in the above statistics) or uses a charge from his wand if he anticipates only a short schedule, and gives himself a charge from his wands of cat's grace and endurance when he expects to be fighting.
