The monk Agon is a giant of a man, tall-limbed and clearly strong as an ox; an image completed by the clear-cut distinctive features of his face: a powerful jaw, an almost beak-like nose and bushy, black eyebrows that are usually pulled together in a perpetual frown. His clothes look somewhat exotic, a short green robe with a yellow rim worn over woolen, brown pants. His feet are covered not by shoes or boots but rather by straps of cloth, carefully bandaged up to protect his soles.

He wears no sort of armor, and seems to carry only one single weapon on his person. This weapon, however, is quite impressive on its own merit: a longbow far larger than most of its kind, apparently made to fit the giant monk perfectly, as its obviously heavy frame and the intricate carvings along its handle indicate the work of a master craftsman.


Agon is rather withdrawn, but has a strong desire to help others. He can be brusque and somewhat grumpy, but can be relied upon like the powerful rock he often appears to be. The loss of his brothers still weighs heavily upon him and while he knows that vengeance is a petty and cruel thing, he cannot help but feel a righteous anger towards those who infiltrated and ultimately destroyed his home monastery.


Agon grew up in a monastery of monks in Goreme, who sought to express perfection through the martial discipline of archery. A very orderly, disciplined life, but a good one. While he often stood out due to his size and was easily picked upon due to his kind nature leading to a scrap or three, he was happy for the most part.

Over the years he grew up into one of their best young warrior monks, and was well in his way to becoming a master himself one day. Until, that is, a great tragedy struck. Amongst the travelers the monastery gave shelter to, and the students from other monasteries they occasionally took in to further their training, were those who had evil designs for the place and set about corrupting them so they could be used as a weapon.

Far too late they were discovered, and more than half of the members of the monastery had been secretly inducted, either seduced or ensorcelled by the dark power these intruders wielded. It was the High Monk who, accompanied by Agon himself, confronted their leader -- only to meet a grisly demise when their true horror revealed itself: undead agents of the Black Dragonflight, intent on using this monastery as a stronghold and powerful resource to strengthen their forces.

The High Monk sacrificed himself to allow Agon the moment he needed to take flight, throwing himself off of the walls of the monastery in order to at least have a remote chance of survival. And survive he did, swearing that one day these once sacred walls would be redeemed as he fled away into the night, to seek allies who would make good use of his strong arm to fight this evil.
