Former tavern keeper
Description: Moonpate is a fairly stout (ok, pudgy) fellow topping in at 260 lbs, 6’3”; advanced in age for a beginning adventurer at 33 years old. He prefers to wear fairly baggy yet light clothing that allows for freedom of movement and plenty of circulation, since he tends to sweat profusely (though he is careful not to “stink”, taking pride in personal hygiene). He avoids looking ostentatious and is proud of his working class background. His prodigious head is about as round as they come, with the only hair present being a pair of bushy eyebrows and some lambchop sideburns. His skin is fairly pale, turning to beet red when he exerts himself. Even though he looks ponderous and clumsy, he moves with the flowing grace of a longtime, extremely busy bartender; especially in respect to his hand movements.
Personality: He is quite the gregarious fellow and has a keen knack for knowing when to speak and when to listen. However, he will only suffer rudeness for as long as necessary. He is comfortable dealing with all walks of life, from the highest nobles to the lowest commoner; at least when it came to serving, entertaining, and listening to them in the bar. As such, his second hand knowledge of the various social strata is quite extensive.
Background: Moonpate is late to the adventuring scene, having spent most of his life working and then owning the family tavern. He earned his moniker by the time he was 18 and has not been called anything else since then. His given name remains a mystery.
Having inherited the family business, Moonpate was quite content to spend his life as a carefree tavern keeper, though he knew there was something that was missing. He always seemed to have a knack for sensing if a customer possessed magic, and the mystical threads of such auras pulled at his imagination.
Fate pulled its own strings when his tavern burned to the ground after a drunken wizard’s apprentice decided to show off his undisciplined skills. Consequently, the apprentice was arrested and later barred from further teachings. The Master Wizard took the distraught Moonpate under his tutelage as restitution, recognizing the latent talent hidden away. The only item of value Moonpate was able to save from the burning tavern was his father’s heirloom beer stein, which naturally became the bonded focus for his growing magical talents.
He has spent the last two years adventuring with his mentor throughout Qadira and has discovered the amusing wonders of dealing with Geniekind. Moonpate has now taken on the mantle of the daivrat prestige class.

When Moon affixes his new belt buckle he finds he has a new ability, though it feels so natural that it’s more like one he’s always known he’s had, he just never made a point of using it before.
Whenever Moonpate casts a spell using the once per day ability granted by his bonded focus (his Father’s beer stein), the stein now automatically fills-up with a potion.
The potion only lasts for 1 minute (10 rounds). If it’s not drunk within that time, it becomes non-magical, but remains excellent, possibly award-winning, beer.
The potion only has a magical effect if drunk by Moonpate. If someone else drinks it, it’s still good beer – just no magic. Drinking from the stein is still a standard action, just like any other potion.
the potion is chosen by the GM randomly. Generally, it will only be a level 1 potion, i.e cure light wounds, sanctuary etc. Akaymarandi's strength though might improve as Moonpate levels.
However, at the time of expending his bonded focus, Moonpate may choose to recite a Haiku such that the final 7 syllables suggest the potion he wants. If the GM can figure it out, he might just have Akaymarandi go with the suggested effect. He might not, the GM is fickle.
And that is Akaymarandi, uber-belt buckle of the Star Tribe, the eldest tribe of the janni of the Osirion desert.
