About Billy:
Billy is a self-absorbed Bard who's ego is only exceeded by his need for attention. He lives to inspire his allies in glorious song while they stand boldly between him and harm's way.

Nestled amidst the Mindspun Mountains of Varisia, Billy Bardy was born into a harmonious union between an Aasimar father and a spirited halfling mother, Billy Bardy embodied the unique blend of celestial grace and halfling charisma. From his celestial lineage, he inherited a golden hue, and an otherworldly magnetism that drew eyes and hearts toward him wherever he went.

Billy Bardy's musical talent bloomed early. From the moment he plucked his first string, he knew he was destined for greatness. As he grew older, Billy's ego swelled alongside his musical prowess. Charisma dripped from him like honey, and he reveled in the adoration of his fellow halflings. Billy's insatiable desire for attention led him to set out on a grand adventure, seeking to captivate audiences far and wide with his enchanting melodies. Armed with his trusty lute and a boundless supply of self-confidence, Billy Bardy intended to carve his name into the annals of bardic legends.

He takes out a mirror and fusses with a lock of golden hair that isn't cooperating.
