Complete character sheet is Here.
Gavin looks a lot like his picture. He has dark brown hair that is short and scraggly and blue eyes. He is quite muscular for a kid, but still has some “baby fat”. He often wears his clothes so that they are baggy and hides this. He often carries his teddy bear in hand. He wears leather armor and has most of his other stuff attached to his backpack. His clothing covers the armor and the cloak covers his back side. He is around four feet tall.

Gavin was born in the Timiro Kingdom in the forests of Tanis. There he was raised in the culture of the druids. Gavin’s mother and father are both powerful psionisists and at an early age it was evident that Gavin too was blessed with the gift of psionics. There Gavin’s parents trained him in the ways of both civilization from which they were in hiding from and the ways of the druids. One of the teachings his parents taught to Gavin is that of Ra. Ra’s teachings of good and evil as absolutes fit in well with Gavin who was beginning to take after his sign of Ghundeg. Gavin was taught how to have an extremely level head in dangerous and compromising positions. His parents also taught Gavin to blend in with society by encouraging his child-like exploration. It was quickly discovered that Gavin could change from playful to extremely serious in a matter of seconds. He has often used this to fool enemies who did not suspect this child of being an extremely capable mind mage. Those who do not pay attention to Gavin in battle often turn around to see that a once seemingly harmless child is now wielding a five foot sword named Eledor. The sword has its name actually engraved into the blade and this is often the last thing many people who oppose Gavin see.Unfortunately after several raids by the druids on the intruding town of Tanis, Gavin’s parents deemed it unsafe for many of the druids. Unbeknownst to scholars, Gavin’s parents led an exodus to a land with less social unrest, the Land of the South Winds. There Gavin’s parents continued to raise Gavin in the ways of psionics and Ra. They instilled values of social equality and the coexistence of civilizations such as the druids and the Timiro population.
One day Gavin’s parents came to him with some burdensome news. The slave people of Timiro have become oppressed more than that of other lands. Gavin’s parents then stated that Gavin is to lead a group of druids into Timiro and from there work to win over the support of slaves in hopes of one day freeing them. In the meanwhile, Gavin’s parents have decided to travel the world in search of aid for this cause. The only contact that will happen is a drop box in a manor secretly owned by Gavin’s parents within the town of Tills. There his parents and Gavin are known as supposed nobles under the guise of the family, Torax. Here Gavin is able to send messages to his parents via a drop box.
From that day on Gavin has led his band of rebels through Timiro freeing slaves, and making allies. Gavin has made many allies amongst dwarves, orcs, kobolds, ogres, and even humans. His rag tag rebel group has grown into a large camp. This group has received the support of several dwarven houses and that of orc tribes. Across Timiro whispers of a slaves’ hero General Mordox have reached the ears of many a slave. These stories have been embellished to the point that in the stories General Mordox is an eight foot tall slave warrior with a nine foot tall sword. All people really know is that General Mordox could be out there and that he could come to free you at any time.
In camp General Mordox is like any other child. In fact most of the followers of General Mordox do not even know who he is. Thus Gavin is able to freely walk about camp and play like any other child would. Only his closest group of supporters know who he actually is. These warriors, druids, and former slaves make up a group of ten elite. They are the ones who announce orders from the General himself and are the figure heads of the people. Gavin often rides on the back of his close friend, Skred, into battle. This allows Gavin to meditate and prepare for upcoming events as needed. Also while going into town, Gavin pretends to be the child of a friend coming with him or an orphan to avoid any suspicions.
On his way to New Crests Gavin came to Greenbough in the Eastern Territory. There he met Nath Everall, who made his magic short bow Florius.
Gavin and Morgan are married on Ra 22, 110.
Gavin was born under the sign of Ghundeg, Od’s Sword. Those born under this sign tend to think in terms of absolutes. Most are very passionate about their beliefs, and those that are religious are avid members of their faith, resolute and unwavering.
Gavin has major influence over the towns of Erat, Tanis, and Tills.
