About Malkith Deraythen

Malkith is an olive-skinned man with dark eyes and shoulder-length raven hair. He shares his smile freely with friend and stranger alike. He sports a leather jerkin decorated with metal studs over a loose fitting shirt and several wide scarves encircle his waist.

Malkith Deraythen is a typical Varisian man. Born and raised amongst the nomadic gypsies, he has spent his years traveling the width and breadth of Varisia along side his extended family. His education came in the form of first-hand experiences and the retelling of stories. As he reached adolescence, Malkith began to display a natural affinity for divining the future. Under the tutelage of his elders, he not only learned the art of fortune-telling, but harnessing the supernatural powers that permitted his people to glean things normally obscured to the rest of the world.

To date, he has been able to contribute a modest income for his family from reading palms and harrow cards for strangers. Recently, however, he has been noticing strange signs; omens that seem to directed at him towards the coast. With a new season approaching and his caravan preparing to migrate east towards Ustalav, Malkith knew he would need to part ways. He packed his own bags, said his farewells, and struck out to in another direction. Unsure of exactly where he needed to be going, he set his initial destination for the closest sea-side settlement - Riddleport.
