ROGGAN

Iron Fist Earth Warlock, Follower of Apis

On a plaque, magically sealed into the bow of the ship known across Palladium as Matilda, it says,
‘Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends.’

Roggan was an Iron Golem, all gleaming surfaces with a twinkle in his onyx eyes, a functioning mouth, and an extra pair of smaller arms at his sides for delicate tasks. He was 20 feet tall, and weighed 3,400 pounds. His form was reminiscent of a human, but almost deformed by muscular formations in his torso. As a golem, he wore no clothes, but luckily Roggan does not have a perfect working anatomic knowledge of humans, so there was no problem. He had a white cape, though it was big enough to be used as a tent by most races. Roggan crafted this Iron Golem body himself, and with the help of Master Kel-ed in Wisdom, he transferred his essence into it.

While in the city of Rivendyne, Roggan created a Stone Golem named Gina that died while CrIsis visited Wisdom.

Bio:

Roggan’s original body was a tall male Troglodyte, a picture can be found here, and he lived in it for over 60 years. He uses a magic Stone Staff, a dwarven halberd, expertly made, and a war maul with a polished wooden handle that has Apis’ symbol etched and painted on it. He has a pet rock, made of Schist, called Bluto; He never goes anywhere without him. He has a silver ring with Apis’ symbol on a neclace around his neck, and the Ring of CrIsis on his right ring finger. He’s always picking up special rocks, and putting them into his small leather pouches, as he’s always happy to take new ‘rock friends’ with him.

Here is Roggan’s Autobiography.

Roggan old. Roggan not really old, just old. Roggan remembers Trog home. Beautiful, happy place. Roggan had many friends there. Rocks, Gems, Trogs. Roggan happy there. But Trogs hate Roggan. Them not talk to rock friends. Them mean to rock friends. Them use hammers and picks, hurt rocks. Them sell Gems to Pink-faces. Roggan run away. Trogs try to hurt Roggan, for talk to rock friends. Roggan run to Pink-face – Dwahrff? – home. Nohrfowlm. Pink-faces not like Roggan. Rogan talk to Gem friends.

One dwahrff like Roggan. Roggan help dwahrff friend, help gem friends. Dwahrff name Murodin. Roggan travel with Murodin, find new gem friends Roggan not see before. Murodin give Roggan neckie. Neckie look like eye. Neckie help Roggan see in day. Murodin nice, Murodin also give Roggan Bluto. Bluto Roggan best friend. Roggan take Bluto everywhere. Roggan meet missionaries for Horus with Murodin. Roggan think Horus not nice, not like Apis. Apis nice. Murodin like Apis, too. Murodin give Roggan ring with Apis face. Roggan love Apis. Apis funny cow-lady. Roggan never see cow-people. Murodin die, Roggan leave Nohrfowlm. Roggan sad Murodin gone. Murodin give silly horse to Roggan.

Roggan horse name Murodin. Roggan go to Wrijin. Roggan live with Wakiw. Wakiw nice. Wakiw puppy-lady. Puppy-men funny the Woafin. Wakiw teach Roggan magic. Wakiw talk to Bluto. Bluto happy, Bluto like Wakiw. Wakiw not travel, stay in Wrijin. Roggan like Wrijin.

Roggan meet Apis!! Roggan never more happy in Roggan life! Apis send Roggan to new friends.

Explanation:

Troglodytes exile, but do not hunt down, any magic-wielding Trog. They don’t have as much fear of other magic-wielding races, since they rarely have contact with them.

Murodin took Roggan in after his exile. Roggan received Bluto from Murodin, which then became his best, and oldest, friend. Murodin converts Roggan to Apis, and despite his time with his next mentor, he never lets go of those teachings. After Murodin passed, Roggan received the Obaru, (not a horse) which Murodin had trained him how to ride during their travels. Roggan named his new steed ‘Murodin’ in memorium of his guardian

They passed by Wrijin a lot while Murodin was alive, on expeditions to the northern mines, where he met a Wolven Warlock, Wakiw. Wakiw taught Roggan how to harness his natural magic abilities, and lived with Roggan for a majority of his life. They grew close, and will attest to anyone that asks they are siblings.
