The night is long and full of terrors, that’s why I bring the light. Mathiel’s parents were fairly typical religious pilgrims of Saranrae, that were persecuted in Osirion for their beliefs. The events that transpired there led to the formation of the Cult of the Dawnflower, a rather militant religious sect of Saranrae that focuses less on healing, and more on ending threats to their existence. They took in refuges of other pilgrims, transported them to Varisia where their religious beliefs were save, and honed not only their faith, but their skill at arms as well.
Mathiel became a devoted servant of Saranrae, intent to find and stomp out darkness where it reared its ugly head. Find the missing person and save him if possible, put them to rest if not, and should undeath rear its ugly head, end it with his spear.
He is an outspoken supporter of freedom and liberty, but Saranrae preaches redemption, not failure to pay ones taxes. When the when he heard that a tax collector hadn’t been heard from in a few years in Ravenmoor, he quickly assembled with a group of likeminded adventurers to go investigate the disappearance.
Mathiel believes that all are worth saving, and thus tries to be positive and to look for the good in others. Inspire of this, he is cautious from years of training and always keeps his guard up.
Mathiel comfortably wears a breastplate after years of practice and carry a long spear with a noteworthy flag of Saranrae on it. He has sharp features and short hair from his years of militant training.
Mathiel has a flag that constantly provides bonuses in combat and will start bardic performances, and then either cast spells or fight with his long spear. Outside of combat he’ll have his spells and is a competent spell caster regardless.
