Tristan is a short, but solidly built young man with shoulder length black hair and piercing green eyes. He carries himself with dignity and confidence, going about whatever task he has set himself with quiet determination.
Tristan is a second generation half-elf, the child of two half breeds. His parents had sought to follow their elven blood and lived amongst the elves, emulating their lifestyles and raising their only child after their fashion. However, as Tristan grew up, he grew discontent with the passive culture of the ageless. He left his home with little more than a handful of coins and an old sword strapped to his belt, heading out to experience life amongst the other half of his heritage. He found work among a mercenary company, serving as a common soldier. Over the next few years, Tristan fought in numerous battles and became an accomplished warrior, but he still felt unfullfilled. The bleak outlook of his fellow soldiers disheartened him as much as the blind arrogance of the elves had. Finally, he left the company and struck out on his own in order to find a destiny that more suited him.

Julian Carver lived his life for 2 things...Heronious and the High Priest in the small town of Redwidow. At 14 he joined with other recruits in a intensive training regime which tested his physical as well as mental/spiritual strength. As others broke or quit under the pressures excerted by the priests and warrior instructors Julian just grew stronger. At graduation,2 years later, he stood at the top of his class and was honored to be part of the bishops personal guard. As a newly ordained paladin, he took to his charges with the stubborness and foolishness of youth. As time passed he started noticing that some of his fellow guardsmen (along with several of the high ranking priests in the temple), were not as incorruptable as originally thought. Confronting his leader with evidence gathered, he was shocked when the old priest just nodded and said " Son, life can be hard on the masses, but it doesn't have to be that way for us...". Shocked by this flagrent disreguard for the beliefs tought to him he lost his temper and backhanded the priest knocking him off his chair. This action infuriated the old man (duh!) and wound him being drawn off to the stockaids. He was punished severly,beaten and then haved his rank stripped from him and tossed out of town. Severly depressed and spiritually hampered he wandered until finding a out of the way monastary. He petitioned the monks there and was accepted as a new member of the order (The Order of the Silent River). After several years of training he made his way back out into the world, combining that which he had learned in his youth with that of the Silent River. All that he carries from his old order is his sword he graduated with, seeking to one day end the corruption he had witnessed first hand, either by the logic he had learned from the monks, or via the sword that the clergy had once given him to protect the ways laid down by Heronious.

Kyron was born to the Luminous, a sparse race of beings composed of positive energy and devoted to the cause of good and the fight against evil. When it was discovered that he had spots of darkness on the translucent skin of his hand, many of his race feared he was contaminated by negative energy and the soul that incarnated in his body might be corrupted from the cause of good. This only drove young Kyron to devote himself fully to becoming a warrior against supernatural evil. He learned how to harness positive energy and studied the ways of undead, dedicating himself to this path of his people. His studies into undead and supernatural power only fueled the fears of some who felt he was setting himself up to be a great force of evil when his stains of darkness overcame the light within him. Mildly ostracized by his own people, Kyron never quite felt that he fit in with the world but felt on some level that there was more for him to be and do. He didn’t feel evil or diseased, just a little detached from the world, always expecting there should be more from life. This detachment allowed him to focus keenly on his chosen quest to war against evil and develop his spiritual might. He traveled far and wide to hunt down undead and study the accumulated lore relating to his chosen prey. Wherever he heard of plagues of undead he journeyed to offer his aid in fighting the forces of unlife. Eventually Kyron found that as he moved from area to area the relationship of the spots changed, leading him to believe that his hand might even be a map with one of the spots representing himself. After aiding a town that had been plagued by shadows he decided to head out on his own to investigate the spots and discover their mystery.

as both a cleric and an Aasimar, Marisa has a very powerful chaotic good aura. Because she is possessed by a demon (despite it being lawful good), Marisa’s aura is oddly tainted with evil. She usually dismisses it as a reaction to the extreme negative energy backlash she suffered when both the demon and high priest (who tried to kill her) both perished at the same time.
She can perform a feat of strength as a super natural ability. She gains an enhancement bonus to strength equal to her cleric level. Activating the power is a free action and the power lasts 1 round. It is usable 1x per day.
1x per day, she can perform a greater turning against undead in place of a regular turning. The greater turning is like a normal turning except that the undead creatures that would be turned are destroyed instead.
Endure elements. Enlarge person.
0 LEVEL CLERICAL SPELLS: Create water. Detect magic. Light. Read magic. Detect undead.
1 LEVEL CLERICAL SPELLS: Detect evil. Bless water. Cure light wounds.
1 LEVEL RANGER SPELLS: Detect poison
Marisa is a striking young woman with finely chiseled features and a slender, rangy build. She is 6ft tall and her skin is tanned from countless hours spent outdoors. Her eyes are a strange pale gold, and on occasion, they seem to glow with an unsettling light. Her jet black hair has silver highlights and is normally braided into a wrist thick braid, which hangs past her waist. She favors green and yellow clothing, both for the fact that they blend in well with forest settings and as a respectful nod to her own clergy.
The Veridath family was always odd.
About 90% of her family is composed of healers of one sort or another and the rest are equally divided between paladins, magic-workers, rangers and the like. For the most part, her family is usually well-received wherever they go. In fact, almost all of them displayed some sort of supernatural gift.
Marisa was no exception. As a child, she could call light to her fingers, and the most vicious animal was docile under her gentle influence. Despite this, she tested negative for the more usual wizardly powers and was given into the care of a cousin skilled in woodcraft and druidism.
When she was ten, Marisa’s family was attacked by an evil cult, possibly belonging to Nerull. During the fighting, she was taken prisoner. The cult’s high priest was very close to ascending to god-hood status. All he needed to complete the process was a demonic sacrifice of at least pit fiend status and a being with some celestial blood running through their veins. Marisa was chosen both for her celestial heritage and her innocence.
The cultist’s did manage to get their hands on a pit fiend, but one who had been imprisoned for thousands of years. The pit fiend had nothing to do but think. He eventually began to realize that his past actions had hurt many people and started to slide towards good. When the cultist’s ’freed’ him, the pit fiend had slid almost completely towards lawful good.
Due to the fact that he was no longer evil, the cultist’s spells did not quite hold him and he managed to break free long enough to kill the high priest and many of the rest of the cultists, before he himself was cut down. For some reason, his spirit was drawn to Marisa’s, and he inadvertently possessed her. Since then, her aura has been oddly tainted with evil, for though the demon is good and relatively harmless to her, he is still a demon.
The demon causes most sensitive people to be slightly jumpy around her. He rarely manifests himself and then, only when he absolutely has to in order to protect Marisa from soul/life destroying situations. That only happened once, when she was beset by a necromancer commanding an entire cemetery of greater undead (she was only second level). For the most part, the demon contents himself with offering mental advice and sarcastic comments, usually quite helpful.

Sugar is generally a very sweet and mild-mannered war-horse, though she can be death on four hooves if Marisa asks it of her. Sugar looks very much like a Percheron and is a dapple gray with a white mane and tale.

Baja is a half-orc albino. He is ugly and his teeth (uncharacteristically white and clean looking) jut out at rediculous angles. His face is also horribly scarred. He carries his great club on his back and although he seems unkempt actually keeps his equipment in good order.
Baja’s life was filled with strife from the day he was born. The elders in the human tribe into which he was born, having seen he was both a half-orc and an albino, declared that the “abomination” be left in the hills for the wolves to devour. Were it not for his mother stealthily making off every mid-day and night-time to feed and care for him in the cave where she had managed to hide him away. He grew strong and with an ability to weather the elements and dangers that nature could throw at him. At the age of 3 he killed a python that had slithered into his home-cave and when he was 15, he was most instrumental in both alerting and helping defending the very village that cast him out from an orcish raid. After that, the village took him back in, tentatively though. The elders still warned against accepting him in and schemed to have him removed. After three years, they came up with a plan to have the man transported to a most dangerous plane of the Abyss (His growing popularity with the common tribes people prohibiting them from openly slaying the man.) using the talents of a wilds shaman who held a dubious background.
But the shaman felt uncommon pity upon Baja and instead teleported him into a land across the “Water That Stretched to the Sun” where none would know Baja and where he would be so far from his homelands that he could never be able to return; thus fulfilling in part the shaman’s part of the bargain.
Since then, Baja has traveled the new lands and in four years of searching has not found his tribe or their grounds. In this time, the warrior has gained a small reputation for righting wrongs in his own limited way and for standing up for those who cannot do so for themselves.
Baja (Pronounced: Bah-zhah), is a dim witted kindly oaf. He isn’t taken to thinking before he acts and when he acts it is rarely a delicate fashion. He has a good natured demeanor, if a little childish, and usually sports a hearty, if ugly (And to some fearsome looking.) toothy smile. If Baja is not smiling, then people are usually going to get very, very hurt.

Description: Bedecked in the deepest of purples and blacks, embroidered with the finest silver thread, Faustus is an image for any courtly affair. His gait is smooth and unrestrained, the whorled black and purple cloak swirls about his ankles. His pitch-black hair is cut short and spiked, his ears are fine, and almost pointed with a silver stud in each lobe. Shimmering eyes of the royalest blue seem to dance with wit. The sharp, graceful lines of his face draw you to the small goatee, finely kept, and the warm too-curious smile of a man who will never see enough.
Personality: Faustus is a man who will never see enough, and has yet to see much that really excites him, despite having quite the history on the road behind him. Having insulted kings, mocked knights, wooed fair damsels, and even once challenged a dragon to a duel, he still hasn't had enough. Something out there waits for him, someday he'll find it (he never thinks that it will someday find him). Always with a tale on his tongue and a smile that would make a monk blush, he'll give almost anything a try, at least once, maybe two or three times, hell even four times if he feels up for it.
History: Supposedly born into a minor noble family, Faustus grew up without needing to do much, although he always strove to do more than anyone would let him. At five he snuck out on to the roof and decided he could fly, taking a mighty leap he almost missed the ground, save for the fact that he didn't and landed with a dull thud in a luckily placed pile of hay. At seven he tried to run away with an acting troupe, he made it about half a day out of the villa when he was discovered and returned. At eleven he challenged his history teacher to a proper duel, and promptly beat him sending the poor man into a wallowing depression that lasted years. At fifteen, during a visit to a king with his family, he decided that the king needed a better wardrobe and cook, as he thought the king's taste was wretched and the food bland and tasteless. This went well, with his family being thrown out of the court and a massive fine imposed upon them, luckily avoiding the gallows. Finally at seventeen, fed up with the life in the minor courts, he bid farewell to his family, which with much "forced" despair let him go (meaning they wanted him gone probably more than he wanted to be gone). So with a rapier at his hip, some fine threads he had specifically had tailored for himself, he headed out into the world. At eighteen he dueled with a knight of the king's court, and happily knicked the knight's fine sword as he lay bruised in the dust. At nineteen, he finally met a match, a wandering monk who wielded a strange rope weapon with weights attached to it. Despite receiving a prompt beating, he had found something finally interesting in the world, spending the next year with the monk he trained in the use of this interesting weapon, soon developing amazing skill with it. So, he set off again; again tried to fly, this time successful if only for a little bit longer, as he happened to be jumping off of a cliff into a lake (as he decided it was better than meeting up with the horde of relatively nasty looking ogres and such that chased him up to that cliff after he managed to steal his way into their camp, trick the chieften out of his bracers, and then happily proclaim himself the new chief). Traveling now on foot after his mount didn't make it out of the last drab encounter, he watches the interesting marks on the back of his hand change and shift and feels that still, despite the women, the duels, the wine, something was missing.

Bollo speak Terran but rarely choose to do so.
Earth Mastery (Ex): Bollo gains a +1 bonus on attack and damage rolls if both it and its foe are touching the ground. If an opponent is airborne or waterborne, the elemental takes a –4 penalty on attack and damage rolls. (These modifiers are not included in the statistics block.)
Push (Ex): Bollo can start a bull rush maneuver without provoking an attack of opportunity. The combat modifiers given in Earth Mastery, above, also apply to the elemental’s opposed Strength checks.
Earth Glide (Ex): Bollo can glide through stone, dirt, or almost any other sort of earth except metal as easily as a fish swims through water. Its burrowing leaves behind no tunnel or hole, nor does it create any ripple or other signs of its presence. A move earth spell cast on an area containing a burrowing earth elemental flings the elemental back 30 feet, stunning the creature for 1 round unless it succeeds on a DC 15 Fortitude save.
Bollo was summoned by Orillian to replace the raven familiar he lost in a fight with a terrible green dragon (see below). Bollo appears to be a chunk of granite roughly the form of a short humanoid. It has gruff manners and seems to deeply dislike serving Orillian (perhaps with good reasons…). Nevertheless, it’s loyal and follows the orders of its master without (much) complain.
Height: 6'0" tall
Weight: 162 lbs
Age: 23 years old
Hair: Light brown and short
Eyes: Light gray
Orillian loves to appear rich and usually wears some jewelry. He’s a tall, thin man. There always seems to be a smirk on his face.
Many would say that Orillian was born with a silver spoon in his mouth and they would be quite right. He was the only child in a family both rich and part of the local aristocracy. So, as a young child, he never had to demand something for long before he had it. His tutor discovered that, in addition of being spoiled, he was actually quite gifted for understanding magical formulas. The problem was getting the easily distracted child to concentrate long enough to learn anything. His parents decided that another wizard in the family would be quite useful and they sent him to a nearby wizardry guild for training.
At the guild, there were no servants and a heavy discipline. Orillian had to work (terrible, isn’t it ?). It took some time but he eventually became focused enough to learn the complicated art that is wizardry. But deep down, he was still that lazy and spoiled brat. So, while most students preferred to blast stuff away with their magic missiles, his favorites were the conjuration spells. He loved nothing more than call on various creatures to do his chores.
Eventually, he left the guild and, to the despair of his family, founded what could be called an ‘adventuring party’ with other young and bored nobles. They were successful for a couple of years, amassing some riches and making a name for themselves (as if they needed either of these things…). This brilliant streak was cut short by a great green dragon the group stumbled upon. Only Orillian survived and that was because he fled.
After this disaster, the young mage returned to his family. His father found him a much calmer occupation as a city official taking care of magic regulations. Still a feeling remains, a feeling that he should do more, that he could influence more than this city, more than this world. Perhaps something will take him out of his early retirement …

Haste 3.0 or 3.5 ?
Kahuna, I know you said that spells are 3.0 but haste is a special case ... So 3.0 or 3.5 ?
