Archdruid Hygar Athame:
Leader of Voraniss and respected Alpha Wolf, Hygar towers over most others quite literally. Known as the Duke of Storms, and a proud Templar of Vandor, Hygar has a long history of being an accomplished adventurer who specializes in regional magics. He is also a celebrated leatherworker in the Realms who has received numerous victories in crafting tournaments for his armor. Hygar was recently inducted into the Order of the Peacock and Squired to Sir Therian and the Knights of the Hinterlands.
High Druid Gavin the Green:
Second in command, Gavin is Hygar’s voice when he cannot speak. A fun and feisty spirit, Gavin strives to protect the lands as a child of Gaia. Often referred to as the fairest maiden in all the Realms, Gavin is a proud member of the Order of the Peacock and strives for excellence in prop building, costuming, and fashion. On top of all of this, Gavin founded the Medics Guild to contribute to the safety and wellbeing of all people, and was promoted out of the Order of the Magi as a Journeyman Mage.
Lady Kindrianna Athame a/k/a Mouse:
Hygar’s self appointed wrangler, and Knight of the Sable Dragon, Mouse can be found always looking out for members of Voraniss and worrying about their wellbeing like a protective mama bear. As the new High Priestess of the Church of Vandor, Mouse is passionate about spiritual matters and communing with the Gods. She enjoys helping organize projects, designing armor and garb, and scribing stories and songs. Many of her efforts can be read in the View from Valehaven publication.
A former champion of Gaia, Artair took what he believed to be the long vigil. He turned to his bear form and let the beast take control for many years, awakening into a world that was not familiar to him. He ventured forth out of his den and soon found himself in Voraniss where he has vowed to continue his work against corruption of the natural world; and ponder on the true nature of Gaia.
If he told you what he was doing, he’d have to kill you. Stewhart is an accomplished scout and hunter who recently made his home within Voraniss after following his nephew, Gavin. Quiet but steadfast, he acts as the solid backbone of the group and is always keeping a watchful eye out for danger. Not much is known about his personal life, so he presents as a little bit of a mystery to outsiders.
Fallen from the stars, Wynn is a sweet celestial bear in search of a tasty snack. She still isn’t used to life in the Realms, but she’s learning. Recently introduced to plates and cups, she’s fascinated by the smallest details of our daily lives. She’s curious and a little shy, but very attached to her new friends. Wynn wants to learn enough to help protect the pack, and won’t hesitate to raise a spear in its defense. Blessed by the great bear spirit Osag that dwells deep within the forest of Voraniss, Wynn is a kind adventurer with a pure heart.
One of the only humans to ever seek refuge in the forests of Voraniss, Varrmagn is a loyal soldier and competent woodsman. Always striving to sharpen his skills with the sword and shield, he is a warrior before anything else; a defender of the Pack that welcomed him when others wouldn’t. Offering Vandor a begrudging respect, Varrmagn is one of the first people to answer a call for aid. When he’s not adventuring, he can be found working on various construction projects around Voraniss and helping the locals learn how to best utilize their ample lumber supply.
Esther the Fisher Cat:
The newest member of the pack as of Black & White 2017, Esther was found wandering around the forest a little lost. She enjoys digging holes and attempting to walk on two legs, which can be quite challenging for her. Curious about the outside world, everything is still new and exciting to Esther. She excitedly volunteers for missions and quests, never knowing exactly what she’s going to get into.
Exiled from his homeland, Mogar was a lone Orc on a quest to find a home for himself. A proud and aggressive warrior, he struggles to navigate a world filled with rules and social expectations that he doesn’t quite understand. Battle, on the other hand, is something he understands intimately; and you can usually find him leading the charge when Voraniss must march into conflict.
Commander Cronin Barbaria:
As Commander of The Broken Spears Free Company, Cronin was fortunate to have signed a treaty with Arch-Druid Hygar and ensure the prosperity for his people. Hygar and Kindrianna gifted him the mighty angel blade Azure Wrath and named him “Druid of the Mountain” as he would stand vigil in Kenkilit and defend Voraniss from the threats to the east. With his new position he balances his responsibilities as a field commander and seasoned diplomat to the benefit of Voraniss and its peoples. Around the campfire he is often found playing music, drinking mead and raising the spirits of his countrymen but on the battlefield he is grim and focused, knowing all too well the cost of war.
Amara is an Elf that has taken up residence within Voraniss due to its vast collection of herbs and undisturbed wilderness. She specializes in brewing potions, telling fortunes, and telling the others which plants are edible and which ones are not. She is a cheerful soul, and always grateful for company even if she seems a little distracted. She worships both Gaia and Luna, maintaining a healthy respect for the natural world and all its glory.
