About Drovya Gregorovitch


Drovya stands an even 6 feet tall and weighs 200lbs. His glossy black hair hangs to his shoulders in a wild mane, and his light blue eyes seem to pierce those the fix on. He usually wears well cut clothes in somber greys and blacks under his bright, golden cloak.
Drovya has a dark scar on his cheek that is also his arcane mark. He does not discuss it and will ignore attempts to discuss it or questions about it.
He carries a strange, two-bladed sword with cruel hooks at the tips in a scabbard at his side

300 years ago, the Gregorovitches were respected swordsmiths in Ardis, boasting blades as artistic as any sculpture. One day, Ivan Gregorovitch, patriarch and master smith was retained by a wealthy but secretive patron to craft a weapon to strange and exacting specifics. Ivan labored for two years on the sword, forsaking all other work. More than once he came close to bankruptcy in his fevered craft, for the blade had become his obsession.
When the patron finally returned to claim his prize, he heaped praise and wealth on the smith, but these things no longer meant anything to Ivan. Before the mysterious man could take the blade from him, Ivan struck him down and then went on a brutal rampage through the family home. Finally, covered in the blood of his wife and children, Ivan's eldest son killed him in self defense. And so, ‘Black Ivan’ has been passed from Gregorovitch to Gregorovitch ever since. Most caretakers of the weapon are wise enough to lock it away, and not so much as gaze upon it, for fear that it might take their minds like it did its creator’s.
Young Drovya however, was not as wise as his elders. From the first moment he found the blade hidden in the vault under his father's forge, the sword became his obsession. In an effort to prove that he should be the caretaker of his family's shame, he abandoned the family trade and spent all his time studying combat and the arcane arts. His elven mother encouraged his study of magic, hoping that in time he would come to embrace it wholly as his eleven forebears had, but the sword had the young man in its grip.
One balmy spring night, he returned home to the gruesome scene of his slaughtered family. Someone had killed them all in a search for Black Ivan. In a rage, Drovya took up the sword and hunted down his family's slayers, but they were only thieves, hired to do a job by an anonymous patron. Drovya left the lone survivor for the local gendarmes and began his long search.
The search for his quarry and for the truth of the blade he carries have lead Drovya all over the Inner Sea and he has gained a limited mastery over Black Ivan. The price for his dream has been sleepless nights and consuming guilt as the trail grows colder. These days, the only humor that Drovya knows is as black as his blade, and only time will tell if his long sought vengeance will bring him peace.
