Background

General information

Turf is the Sheriff Baron of Erewhon, a barony ruled by Saydar. He is known as an honest and fair elf. Many ask why Turf works so closely with Saydar, given his cruel reputation. Some suggest he is controlled by the Necromancer, others that his presence curbs his cruelty. The third suggestion, spoken only in whispers, is that he is monitoring the Necromancer and will enact the final solution if Saydar ever turns away from humanity. Nobody has ever heard of Saydar.

Turf is known to have strong morals and alleged to be aligned with the Powers of Light. He is vocal in his contempt for demons, their pacted minions and other evil beings. He advocated that guild members pacted to Demon and their ilk should be put to the sword.

Appearance

Turf is a tall, muscular looking Elf that moves with incredible grace. He is completely bald with unusual tattoos running across his head and disappearing down his back. Upon his face he wears a porcelain mask which is covered in minute figures, he is alleged to be beautiful but is rarely seen without the mask. He is dressed in bronze coloured plate armour that is known to occasionally sparkle, with a glowing weapon resting upon each hip. Opon his back hangs a black cloak that is covered in fine silver writing. A number of potions and amulets hang from his body.


Abilities

Turf is an extremely talented warrior and deadly in combat, having studied many secret tomes. His skills within the Naming college are known to be heavily modified.

Comments

Scab: I knew Pink when he was just a little elf with none of this whole leaping-about-tatoo-head thing going on. He was fine then, it's all that high power magic and living with an orc that done it to him. Or being a namer, that's bound to have driven him crazy, all the other namers are stark raving bonkers. Mind you I thought about being a namer once but the starched underwear didn't agree with me.

Sith the Necromancer: Turf stop pretending, you don't need to be butch all the time darlingk.

Uzi: "Good"? Ha! Rumour is he sucked off demons to get Master in Warrior... He's good in a fight though. For a dancing elf-type.
