Weight: 41 pounds
Eyes: dark brown, squinty and expressive
Skin: Heavily tanned
Hair: Sandy blond, crudely cut. Well trimmed, curly beard and long, oiled mustache
Description: Of solid height and built for a gnome, carries himself as if he is much bigger than he is. Very light footed - seems to avoid making noise as an ingrained habit, and frequently frowns as those who do not. Easy smile. Left ear is notched from a close call from a gnoll spear. Wears a dark brown turban and a lighter brown cloak. Underneath, sandy colored robes with well worn but solid light armor and equipment. Wide belt has several small notches. Sandy dust seems to have permeated his entire being. Wears a small shield (would barely be a buckler for a human) and a particularly curvy sword, the Moon Sword. (see attached image it's similar to what was wielded by Turtle Ma in the Croutching Tiger Hidden Dragon sequel).
History: A proud warrior and guide of the Sarbani clan, Darwin was taught the trade by his father and has numerous years guiding caravans through the gnomish homeland, and has also taken part in a number of raids vs goblin tribes trying to establish themselves again in the Red Hills. Two years ago he was involved in a series of ambushes and skirmishes to push out a group of Gnolls probing the area. The Gnollish armies concluded that the area, although strategically important, was not worth the effort conquering (controlling the passes leading to it would achieve the same). Darwin and several others are under the impression that they fully trounced the gnolls. After this action, Darwin was given the Moon Sword, a great honor, to salute his bravery and cunning in battle. Darwin's mother hoped that he would marry and settle down a bit, but Darwin sees his first century as the time to fight and strive for the clan. Being skilled and without a family of his own to raise, he was suggested as a volunteer by the clan elders when it was decided to investigate the events around Hagan's Pass as well as the wider world beyond. Darwin is therefore acting on behalf of the gnomes of the Red Hill as a whole... but as his mission was given rather vague terms, his efforts have not been very focused so far.
Personality Traits: Darwin has an easy smile, is generous, likes to laugh and tell jokes... but his hand is never far from the handle of his sword. He is fiercely protective of his clan and his friends. He views battle as a test of both courage and wit - there is no such thing as a "fair" fight.
Ideals: Greater good: All gnomes must strive and fight to help the clans survive and keep the goblins from regaining a foothold.
Bonds: Tribal honor code: Darwin follows fiercely the Red hill gnomish honor code, which includes hospitality, loyalty, bravery, revenge on foes and defense of the home. The Sarbani clan in particular will fiercely defend travelers who hire them as guides.
Flaws: Over-alertness. Darwin has spent so much time in the field that he can't turn it off anymore. Anyone, any place, any situation could lead to an ambush. He can be overconfident.[/sblock]

The moon sword: (Scimitar +1)
Made by gnomes, this sword appears well made but with an unusually curved blade with a sharp point. The handle is made of wood decorated with strips of turquoise. The hilt is short and the pommel is L shaped, allowing the wielder to pull on the sword to create a "drawn cut" effect. Once the Sarbani clan was awarded the Sun Shield by a passing paladin, the members were struck by the pattern - they already had a star ring and the belt of a cloud giant, so this was profoundly significant. The mage of the clan at the time resolved to make a powerful sword, based on the moon, to help the clan fight goblins. Unfortunately, the mage was not especially skilled and the sword is a "mere" sword +1, although it does glow faintly if goblins are within 120 feet. Still, the effort was very well received by the clan and it is now considered part of the Clan regalia. The sword's long history of success in battle tends to make its wielder rather confident in their abilities.

Kini had always been shy and bookish. Slight of frame, while other halfling children were running around outside, she was curled up inside by the fire with any book she could get her hands on.
One day she got hold of a book of magic. She was fascinated by it, and soon managed to master invoking minor illusions. This caught the attention of the local wizard and he took her as his apprentice. Part of her duties was as his scribe, copying his letters and spells, and she proved adept at mastering illusion magic.
Then her life changed. Gnolls invaded the village. They seemed focused on the wizard's home. Her mentor quickly grabbed her pack and stuffed a large book into it. "Protect this at all costs!" he warned her. "Run, you fool!" He opened a small hidden panel to reveal a small hidden tunnel, too small for him but just her size. Frightened but obedient, Kini scrambled down the short tunnel to safety as her mentor fought off the gnolls.
Kini can't read what is in the book, but knows it must be something dangerous if her master sacrificed himself so that she could escape with it.
