About My Character

Ssylrath is a Sith-makar warrior and hunter from the jungle, out to experience the wider world. He's shorter than most lizardmen, coloured black and green from a lesser swamp-dwelling tribe, and travels around with his mount, seeking challenge and reward.


This short burly Sith-makar is a conglomeration of savage and civilized touches. His mottled hide is mostly green with black touches, extending into a series of spines from the back of his head, and his snout ends in unevenly wicked teeth which are nonetheless carefully polished. His breath smells acrid and his eyes (when not covered) are small and gold-on-black. The tip of his tail also sports several small spikes.

He is wearing a well-made suit of fullplate of shiny mithral tailored for his squat form (not even six feet) and adorning his face are a pair of goggles. There is a long curved falchion commonly across his back and he frequently holds a long spear or lance of a dark-stained wood with a cross-guard. From the back of his saddle a tall pole or stand rises from which hangs a long strip of scaled leather in the manner of a banner, it is strangely inspiring. Over all this modern gear he has a number of fetishes and dangly trophies on leather thongs presumably commemorating various events or kills. Around his head orbits a small stone, plainly held by magic. The overall impression is of a reptilian warrior from the jungle, yet outfitted with modern weaponry and armor.

Somewhere in the vicinity, quite likely actually being ridden, is a large swiftclaw that looks scarred, vicious, and similarly festooned with trophies. It is wearing chain armor, well cared for and custom fitted, with the token of the Order of Peace attached.


Anyone allied with Ssylrath who can see his banner and is within 60 feet gains a +3 Morale bonus against fear and a +2 Morale bonus on charge attacks.
