About Lodoro Balbus

Lodoro Balbus is a Warrior Poet who worships Shelyn (and who will likely become a Paladin of Shelyn in due course). Although he tries to hide it he has some Azata blood in him. He is Fed Up with Cheliax and the local regime


Lodoro is from a fairly impoverished minor noble family that has fallen on hard times since House Thrune came to power.
Although it is a carefully guarded secret outside of the family, there is Azata blood in the bloodline and many of the family (including Londoro) are actually Aasimars, albeit all Aasimars who can pass as human.

Not surprisingly, the family has always been dedicated to Shelyn (while they don't advertise this they also don't really hide it either). From an early age Lodoro has trained in the use of martial weapons (especially the Glaive). He is trained to treat combat as its own art form, fighting with beauty and grace. He has also been taught to honor Shelyn in all forms and follows the Shelynite paladin code.

He was just starting his career as an Opera Singer in the opera house when it got shut down.

This was the proverbial straw that broke the camels back. Long an opponent of the Thrune regime, this has caused him to realize that it is time to take up arms and actively try and throw the regime down.


While he can be a bit of a stickler for "doing things properly" at times his heart is always in the right place. He is cheerful but dedicated to his art and to doing what is right and proper.
He fully embraces his family creed. "Never destroy art unless doing so is part of an artful act or performance of your own. I must respect the skill of my opponents and never desecrate or purposefully humiliate a foe. If I takes a sapient life, I must create a piece of art, performance, or poem in honor of the fallen creature or creatures in order to memorialize what I have taken from the world."

Bot me:

Lodoro will nearly always attempt to feint his opponent (either as part of a full round attack OR as part of a move action) and will then generally just strike him.

He'll use non lethal if the battle as a whole is using non lethal and lethal otherwise
