About Hektir the Tracksmage


A human male, Hektir stands 5'11" tall and weighs in at about 185lbs when leaving town, and a few pounds later when returning. Clad in his worn wooden armor, Hektir sports a shiny scimitar at his hip (a tool he picked up from his Qadiran neighbors...them Sarenraens are a persuasive lot).
Like most Taldans, Hektir sports brown hair and brown eyes. On expeditions, Hektir carries his heavy backpack with him which carries most of his woodsmany supplies.


Hektir, Taldan by birth, partial outcast by choice, is a rugged individualist. Happy to live off the land, Hektir is used to spending time alone, in nature. He makes a living helping the more urban populace with matters of beast and land--tracking and trapping, hunting and gaming.
Hektir can be gruff, even acidic at times, but is good to his word and mostly honest. He will opine freely on matters and recognizes that he sometimes sees things the wrong way.
He values his skills and the skills of others for what the person can do alone is of greater value than what one does with aid. He loves unclaimed wildernesses and that is where he makes his living and feels most comfortable, but knows that part of him needs occasional human(oid) interaction.
He is somewhat boastful, but that is usually a shallow lie to pick up extra business or to sell his catches for more money.
He has some family, but is reluctant to speak of it (see colorful past).

Amazingly Colorful Past:
