Somewhat obsessive in his habits, Jostin is clearly fascinated by the intricacies of the mechanisms with which he works. He will talk for hours about the sweet balance of his latest creation – not so much as a salesman would, but rather as an enthusiast must when describing the object of his passion.
Jostin is of middling height and slim build. His auburn hair is always a mess – a bit too long and badly in need of combing. He has long, sensitive fingers which are never still. They are always tapping out a beat on lock components, fitting and removing tumblers, checking and rechecking the contents of the arcane pouch he wears at his belt.
Background: The middle son of a mage couple, Jostin decided quite early in his life that he didn’t want to be just another magician. Although taken with the intricacies of arcane knowledge, it was the physical manifestation of patterns, permutations and possibilities to be found in all manner of locking devices which really fascinated him.
A lover of knowledge for its own sake, he rapidly became fascinated with the process of securing and protecting that knowledge – and other, more material things, as well – from the incursions of outsiders.
During his early teens, Jostin’s stubborn, rebellious nature led him to experiment outside the confines of the law. Coming quickly to the notice of the Thieves’ Guild, he was recruited as a street runner. Through his intelligence and his interest in locks and traps, he quickly found a niche as a burglar.
Unconcerned by traditional moralities, he nevertheless drew the line at violence, reasoning that if he were not adept enough to break and enter without attracting the attentions of the residents, then it was far better for him to make off quickly and quietly.
Recent experiences, however, have encouraged him to develop his archery skills, and to acquire a couple of wands to give him an edge, should he be drawn into combat against his will.
Codes are a hobby of his, but one which he has little time to indulge these days. Instead, he has taken to studying a variety of disciplines – all with an eye to generating an income which will, eventually, allow him to focus his efforts on what he really loves, the acquisition of knowledge.
To that end, Jostin eventually acquiesced to his parents’ entreaties that he attend the arcane university in the city of his birth – the university where both his parents work on the academic staff. It was not easy being a student in the establishment where they both taught – not because of the demands of study, since he romped through the basic apprenticeship studies in record time, but rather because of the social expectations of his parents and their colleagues that Ashwin and Sarai’s son was destined for magical greatness. Who knows? At some stage he might go back, and prove them right.
Jostin works as a locksmith and trapmaker, as well as a fence and burglar. He has also been known to “enhance” small items brought to him on commission, through judicious use of the spell “Nystul’s Magic Aura”. His favourite lurk is to claim that said items have a luck spell, which, when called upon, will dramatically improve the bearer’s fortune. He is careful, however, only to sell such items to customers who are manifestly too stupid to notice – or are on their way to distant parts on the morrow.
He has made it clear to the Thieves’ Guild that, although he is happy to be counted on for any mission that requires a top-notch “admissions expert”, he will not break in to his own clients’ establishments. There’s no challenge in defeating his own creations, and besides, he’s out to make a reputation for himself as the finest locksmith and trap-maker around. Of course, if his clients also purchase from other craftsmen, he has no qualms about defeating their devices.
The fact that he’s happy to pay a tithe to the Guild on his legitimate business means that they’re happy (at least for now) to allow him his little eccentricity.

Spellbinder (Lvl 16)
Thravar Blackhill is a vile and unpleasant dwarf burglar and safe-cracker.
He is all but covered in thick black hair, with dark eyes peeping out over leathery cheeks that form one of the few breaks in the pelt that covers almost his entire body. His nose was badly broken long before he came to the city, and cut with a blade besides, and a bright pink scar runs across the broken ruin of his nose. At least one gold tooth peeps through his black beard and mustache when he speaks.
Whatever caused Thravar to leave his ancestral dwarfhall home, he refuses to say, but buried beneath the black hair of his thick right forearm is a spot where the hair does not grow and he has been branded with a dwarf rune. Most believe it signifies that he is a thief, traitor and exile. (Speakers of Dwarven also indicate that "Thravar" is almost certainly not the name he bore before his exile.)
Thravar's speech is punctuated with three languages' worth of profanity and he is typically crude and insulting to anyone he thinks he can beat in a fight. He smokes truly vile-smelling orcweed cigars that he gestures with to emphasize his points.
Today, he lives in a filthy shack in the midst of a junkyard, where he nominally serves as the watchman. This mostly consists of throwing raw meat to the various half-wild dogs that roam the property. It's sufficient security -- it really is all junk, for the most part -- and the dogs also end up guarding his shack in the middle of it, providing excellent personal security for Thravar.
Like most dwarves, he finds himself naturally gravitating towards structure, in this case, the city's thieves guild. Unfortunately, an encounter he'd had with an obnoxious young bravo prior to joining has come back to haunt him: The now one-eyed boy whom he'd chosen to extinguish his cigar on turned out to be a nephew of a guild lieutenant. The lieutenant knew his nephew well enough to know it was probably deserved, but for the sake of appearance and honor, he's had to make sure the dwarf burglar's ascent through the guild hierarchy was visibly difficult. Despite this -- and the very real concern about a one-eyed bravo slipping a knife into his ribs, should he be caught unawares -- Thravar has begun his ascent. The Blackhills have always been excellent mountaineers.

Fhel in his natural form is five and a half feet tall, slight of build, with no body hair and incredibly smooth gray-blue skin. He has white hair which is generally short. His eyes are pupil-less pits of white. However, it is nearly impossible to catch him in his natural form, more often appearing as one of many different personas, most commonly that of Fhel (see Roles section).
Fhel is a manipulator and planner. He prefers to get others to do the dirty work. Should it come to violence, he’d much rather have it stacked to his advantage or slip away as quickly as possible. Fhel is neither particularly cruel nor particularly violent, but he is incredibly dangerous when pressed. Much more willing to turn a persons life upside down with his ability to exhort social control than merely cut on a person, he finds it is a mark of civility on his part. Fhel is still quite young, but a master of organizing crime and acquiring information.
Fhel grew up on the streets. Born to a changeling passing through, he was abandoned at a local church. He spent his youth as an orphan, slipping out of the church as often as possible, unconsciously assuming the figure of a human boy or girl. Once he realized his cunning ability, he began to play upon it to get those thing which he wanted. He would watch children with rich parents, then when one of them ran off to get something, he would mimic their appearance and return to the parents, demand a bit of money for some trinket and then run off again.
This is how he first got started. His talents soon bloomed to include assuming the identity of child beggars (anyone would give a copper to a starving girl or boy), halflings, gnomes, he even began to organize the street children in his neighborhood into small gangs. They would distract merchants while others pocketed food or minor items. With a mind for organized crime and deceit, Fhel got the attention of the local guild and was soon “picked up” as a new recruit.
Since the age of ten or twelve, he doesn’t exactly know his own age, Fhel has worked within the guild structure moving cautiously up, deflecting criticism and social antagonism within the ranks onto others so that he can advance with as few worries as possible.
Fhel’s roles in the guild is often as a face, or faces to be more accurate. His ability to manipulate people and get the best deal possible means that he is often sent to warn/deal with people who cross the guild in some way, often times with a bruiser or two as backup. He has an incredible knack for getting individuals to bow to the demands of the guild while seemingly providing nothing or as little as possible in return as possible.
His innate ability at disguise makes him ideal for couriering packages, meeting with informants, infiltrating social gatherings and guarded locations without all the fuss of breaking and entering.
Most important however, is that with his ability to gather key information, organize talented individuals and work out plans, he often is the lead on specific missions. Almost everyone in the guild has probably worked with Fhel as the lead on a mission, sometimes working with him more than once but with different identities and not realizing it.
Fhel: Fhel is the name that he goes by right now in the guild, he has collected many other names but rarely uses them in the guild. When not in another disguise this chosen form is that of a human male, roughly thirty-five years of age with salt-and-pepper hair, green eyes and sharp features. A slight regality to his posture and manner implies that he was or is of noble birth. He often wears a signet ring and finely tailored clothing, but nothing so particular as to stand out. Distinct but easily forgettable.
Kaz: Kaz is the role that Fhel adopts when dealing with the street urchins that he grew up with. A stout youth probably in his early teens, he’s got a number of scars. A tough looking type who has seen himself through a hard life on the streets.
Lament: Fhel maintains the identity of Lament, a street girl turned pusher and seductress. Often times changing the colour of her basic features (eyes, hair, skin) but maintaining the same general form, she is a particularly striking elf with sharp features and exotic looks. Fhel uses this role to create dependency (whether sexual or drug related), blackmail opportunity, etc.
Beggar: Fhel often takes on the role of a beggar in the streets. People rarely notice the ragamuffin at their feet, willing to drop a few coppers to ignore their plight and make themselves feel good. As a beggar Fhel acts as a lookout or contact.
Courier: Fhel maintains a number of minor identities as a courier, often receiving the package to be sent as one, then delivering it as another to make as little correlation as possible.
William Burrough: Fhel maintains the identity of one William Burrough, a human lad who happens to work and study under one of the city’s chief architects and engineers. This has given him minor access to some of the city layouts as well as interesting knowledge on how buildings are laid out.
Esarius Windwright: Fhel occasionally parades as one Esarius Windwright, a half-elf card shark and playboy who frequents the brothels and taverns. Fhel enjoys this raucous character every once in a while. Esarius may not be the best cheat, but he’s an expert at manipulating the other players and reading their ticks and habits.

Ashlyn is a beautiful 'tall' halfling female, Ashlyn has merry green eyes, shoulder length curly brown hair, and possesses an athletic toned figure.
When disguised as Amber, she dyes her hair black, and half of her beautiful face appears to be disfigured by a terrible scar as if her face has been ravaged by fire, Amber wears dark clothing which covers all parts of her flesh and commonly hides her face within the deep cowl of her cloak.
Outwardly Ashlyn is a cheerful, fun, vivacious halfling with a dry sense of humour, few know of the dark heart that beats beneath this outwards exterior, while cheerful to all she meets, Ashlyn is prone to hold a grudge and takes great pleasure in destroying those who cross her.
When disguised as Amber, she allows the darker side of her nature to come to the fore, and speaks with a ragged whisper, as if her vocal cords were also damaged with the fire..
Ashlyn is the daughter of reknowned arts forger Dirkil Ambermead, Dirkil was highly successful but was eventually caught and died in prison for his crimes, resolving not to share in his fate Ashlyn decided that she need an air of respectability while still having the option of using her skills for forgery and information gathering.
Ashlyn has always had a passion for knowledge and realised at an early age, that knowledge can bring both great power and wealth, realising this Ashlyn managed to get a job as a clerk in the 'Hall of Records', Ashlyn rapidly rose thru the ranks, those who were in her way had a habit of meeting unfortunate accidents.
Ashlyn is now a trusted and respected Senior Clerk, who is recongnised as an expert in spotting forged documents, within the city. Ashlyn is a well known face among the city watch and has worked with them on many occasions to help identify and track down would-be forgers.
Few realise that Ashlyn leads a double life selling forged documents, blueprints and information to the Thieves and Assassins guilds, well known among the guilds as Amber, she provides a valuable service to any who can meet her price, due to the power of her magical ring of sustenance, Ashlyn is able to effectively lead two lives, one as Ashlyn Ambermead respected Senior Clerk with the Hall of Records and another as Amber Master forger, and information gatherer.
Ashlyn makes her home in a slightly run down section of town, Ashlyn lives alone in her parents small one bedroom home which was built over a long forgotten cellar, which in turn has access to the cities sewer system, from her home she is able to come and go without being seen, as well as providing a safe place for her to exercise her forgery skills.
Amber works with the approval of the Thieves Guild, any who wish to avail themselves of her services much first approach the Guild with their request, Amber goes to the Guild 2-3 times a week to check for any new information requests.
Amber also maintains a large information network of informants in both important and mundanes areas of the city, this enables her to keep abreast of what is goings on in the city, as well as providering her with the leverage to blackmail important members of the city, who wish to keep their secrets safe.
