LN Male Lizardfolk Fighter 3
Description: A huge lizardfolk, dark red to the point of nearly being pitch black, except for a tinge of lighter red around his mouth, giving the appearance of a bloody maw. He wears gleaming polished Full-Plate, a heavy shield and oversized weapons which he handles with ease. Around his neck hangs a magically preserved burned Gnome's foot in a small unbreakable bottle.
Personality: Shino is a very professional fighter, eager to accept commands, but will not act on his own initiative untill last resort. He is calm, almost zen-like, although you can detect a loneliness in him which no amount of company seems to fulfill. He is kind-hearted, always helping out the less fortunate, and will commonly adopt a cause for no reason other than to help out a person in great need. Has a soft spot for gnomes, who remind him of his lost travelling partner.
History: Shino was born in Q'barra, but sold into slavery at a young age by a rival lizardfolk tribe which had raided his village. His employment history eventually brought him to the service of a group of adventurer's as a local guide, when his group was attacked by a hill giant, Shino came to the rescue. He took the greatclub that the giant had used as his own, and the group decided that they couldn't pass up having his services for their own. They bought Shino from his slavemaster, and set him free, then asking him to join them of his own free will. Humbled by the kindly act, and knowing nowhere else to go, Shino joined them, and eventually became a skilled fighter.
He went through several adventures with the group, and became quite good friends with the gnomish sorcerer in the group. The sorcerer even purchased the set of Full Plate that Shino currently sports as a gift from the whole group for defeating a Half-Dragon which had almost killed them all. Unfortunately, the Sorcerer met a tragic end, picking up a Staff of Fire which cursed him with a compulsion to engage in Pyromania using any magical means necessary. He was killed in a massive fireball cast by a demilich when he ran straight into a group of minotaurs casting fireburst repeatadly. Shino was devastated by the loss, and finding only the gnome's foot, vowed to save up his money and one day resurrect his friend. He has said he would enter Dolurrh itself if need be to find him.
Tactics: Shino is a professional in combat, although his low will occasionally allows him to be distracted by taunts or feints. He compensates by making sure that any foe which attracts his attention is immediately taken care of, and his high AC helps deflect any unwanted physical attention. Shino rarely enters Total Defense mode, only when he feels utterly overwhelmed and wishes to buy some time for his companions to escape a confrontation.
