Appearance

Rhoran Ironcairn, a Kaldar.
He has a stern face, cold leaf-green eyes and a freckled nose. He has cropped mouse brown-streaked ginger hair, with tanned skin and a well-defined build.
He is a bit over average height for a Kaldar.
He appears to be young.

He is wearing some sleek diacan brigandine gloves with twisted black gold cuffs, a gleaming agonite ceremonial shield engraved with a labyrinthine design, some brass knuckles, an etched steel parry stick with black leather straps, a metal chain balaclava, some icesteel vambraces embedded with blades of hiromin, a rugged black-hide robe, a pilgrim's badge, a grey scarf with various faces swirling across its surface, a lumpy bundle, a dashing wide-brimmed hat with a small braided band, a soft gem pouch, a braided cambrinth armband, some steel-toed marching boots, a triangular wrist blade with a serrated copper edge, a polished iron ring inset with a cambrinth shield, a stark-white globe amulet hanging from a darkened steel chain, a partitioned diacan case swirled with a watery iridescence, a simple silversteel ring, an oilcloth rucksack, some thick black wool socks, a wide leather utility belt tooled with the Estate Holder's crest, some soft ebon leather dueling pants shadow-tooled with rampaging drakes, an ivory linen swordsman's shirt with blackworked cuffs, a dark green suede jacket with narrow lapels, a black spidersilk lootsack clasped with a platinum dragon, an abyssal black thigh bag, a deeply cowled cloak with a heavy austere mantle, a darkened metal lockpick case, a dark thornweave messenger bag with weathered onyx-hide straps, a cloth-of-gold baldric clasped with an onyx scorpion, an embossed sword belt with a diamondwood nightstick hanging from it, a weathered pouch with patches of lightly scorched leather, a dark green leather thigh pouch branded with a stylized dragon and an onyx-hide thigh quiver with glaes-buckled straps.

Background

Rhoran keeps most of his background and origin to himself. When pressed by his fellow acolytes, however, he has revealed a few tidbits.

  • Grew up far from Zoluren, but was sent to Crossing to join the Cleric guild by his uncle.
  • Left his parents and two sisters (one older, one younger) behind.
  • Father was a soldier, and his mother was a Blacksmith.
  • Older sister was training in lunar magic when he left home and his younger sister was just starting to walk.
  • Very fond of the ancient tales his father would tell during the long winter months indoors.
  • Lived near many gnomes and had several as friends.

Life as a Cleric

Beliefs

Though he is a very private person, Rhoran is not overly shy about his beliefs.

  • Dedicated to Urrem'tier and upholding the sanctity of the dead.
  • Has a special interest in training to guard the tombs and spirits of the dead.
  • Is very interested in the concept of the Kaneija held by Orisas in the Gorbesh religion.

Training

Magic

  • Rhoran has trained extensively in both spells and magical feats. He records these in his spellbook.

  • Rhoran's various research efforts resulted in him delving deeply into the very nature of the Starry Road, Metaphysics, and the divine. Excited by his discoveries he delved deeper and deeper into avenues of research the guild would most certainly not approve of. In the end, he pieced together a spell he believed would allow him to modify the ritual used to align with one of the 39 Kermorian gods. To his horror, the spell did far more. In the wake of the indecent, he has sworn to never use the spell again except in the most dire of circumstances - and even then he would most likely forego it.

Memorable Moments

  • Participated in Droughtman's Challenge of 443
  • Havrandu 17 Ka'len 434
    • After being directed to speak with High Priestess Tallis in the Crossing Temple, Rhoran set out to learn a nearly forgotten technique called Mana Infusion. His attempt went poorly due to a lack of preparation or clear information on what awaited him within the abandoned church. The Grey Lach's proved beyond his combat skills and he was forced to turn back. After returning to the Crossing in defeat, his tale of defeat was overheard by an elder member of the Guild. A few days later several Lach claws were deposited in the guild's donation bin and word was passed to Rhoran to pick them up. Now, able to avoid combating the Lachs, he could return for another attempt. After traveling south to the abandoned church, this time accompanied by his teacher Teryn, Rhoran was able to utilize the claws and his wits to reach his goal: a leather-bound grimoire. Once able to study the an ancient grimoire, it took little time for him to learn both the theory and practical skill to infuse mana into active spells.
  • Stumbled upon a strange orb that whisked him away to a Time Vortex.
    • Joined with several others to venture into a tower where he got very confused, lost, and killed by a party member's spell "gone wrong". Rhoran is convinced it was all just a very strange dream.
  • Joined a small party of individuals guided by the Redeemed Necromancer Zauldin and seeking potential Redemption in the eyes of the Immortals on a trip to the Gilen Otso Steppe.
