About Javier Delgado

Who is this guy? (Background):

Since he was very young Javier had always struggled to fit with his gnoll’s clan, infected with wanderlust, unaccustomed to life away from the city and fascinated by foreign cultures, he quickly left his home to explore the world, choosing a life of adventure. Discovering a knack for manipulation and a gift for impersonation, the young Gnoll got by living as a con artist, thief and in general enjoyed the high life by separating the fools from their money.

Eventually he ended up in Risur and was briefly an apprentice of a local druid to snatch from them the secret of shapeshifting in order to become even better at his cons as Gnolls aren’t exactly trusted and there were limits to what mundane skills could do in disguising his nature. There, he made a few heists in Flint, in order to finance a luxurious life-style, but eventually came under the attention of both the RHC and a local crime family that he had stolen money from an RHC Inspector (maybe Deft?) got to him before the mobsters and while he arrested the young gnoll, he also saved him from ending up in a shallow grave or on the bottom of the bay.

Once his sentence was served, Javier, grateful toward the man who had actually saved his life and whose contact he had kept during his time in prison, intrigued by the life of the Constabulary, begun to serve first as an informant and later as a full time agent and a spy, staying infiltrated within criminal rings and terrorists cells for months if needed be in order to help disbanding them.

Recently he had been sent in his native land, after years of absence, to keep tabs on the Bruse and his intentions and he had built for himself the persona of an ambitious weapon dealer interested in all the new technologies.
