About Janosz Frogshanks
Appearance: 5’7", 180 lbs. Janosz is a short, broad man with deeply suntanned skin, brown eyes and black hair. Complex interlocking ritual tribal scarification covers the backs of his hands, and long, jagged scars, vivid reminders of numerous too-close fights, run across his forehead and throat. He dresses in dark forest colours and well-oiled mail, with his upper body crisscrossed by a multitude of straps and bandoliers holding both adventuring gear and good-luck fetishes.
Janosz likes collecting and keeping trophies - prominent ones include a dragon skull, a demon-wolf pelt and a tea mug fashioned from a warforged head. He also has a number of tattoos commemorating important events and particularly memorable foes. They include:

Before Combat Janosz casts Longstrider before battle starts. If given time, he will hide and then strike from concealment.
Janosz hails from a tribe of near-feral humans living deep in the Shadow Marches. In this area, the cults of the Dragon Below are common, and religious and ethnic tribal raiding is a major danger. Recently, while he was out hunting, crazed disciples of the Dragon Below burned and pillaged his tiny village, killing many and driving away the rest. After burying his friends and family, Janosz left, intending to join the Gatekeepers and take revenge on the Khyber cultists. However, after being rejected by the local druids, Janosz left the swamps in a huff and signed on with a Tharashk caravan bound for the distant metropolis of Sharn. Once there, he decided to join the great House. In their service, he hopes to explore hidden lands, increase his power and knowledge, and take his vengeance upon those that worship the dark powers. After that, perhaps the Gatekeepers will accept him into their ranks as well?
