Escalor Ghosthunter

 

Notes

Escalor was born in Giminanno, to the wealthy, but somewhat obscure noble family od Durreta. His family, their old holdings lost and their numbers diminished, manage to survive by selling their services as mages. In this they have strong reputation. This, together with the fact that they have no land outside the family towerhouse in the city, have largely insulated them from the feuds of the more powerful families, but it has also prevented them from being seen as good alliance partners or marriage prospects. Many of the family have thus gone elsewhere, and the Durretta tower now holds a fraction of the population that once dwelt there. Escalor is the second son of the current head of the family, and his studies in necromancy have led him to a profitable, if rather gruesome trade, which he plies throughout northen Atrios - that of Ghosthunter.

In appearance, Escalor is a tall thin man, apparently about 20, with long dark hair that curls to his shoulders. He is clean shaven, and his skin is unusually pale, reflecting the hours he keeps and the time spent indoors poring over old books and manuscripts. He has large dark eyes, that can charm the ladies or glare with almost hypnotic power.

Escalor is currently out of Gimminano. A duel over a slight to a woman ended with the severe wounding of his opponent Calatior, a member of the noble house Tomtorii. They have declared they will have him tried for attempted murder if they can catch him!
