Posted by Adaen of Bridgewater on January 6, 2007

Some Background Jottings…..we never did write this up formally…too hard after the 2nd TPK:

Sparrow (Child #3 –Denarus Entarius)

Alassa (Rhenee background) mother (source of magical ability….possibly a sorceress focused on Divination/Charms/Enchantments) and Tolian Entarius (Elreddi) father (merchant: textiles, rare spices, fine oils, imports/exports of the exotic)…..they met in a tavern….it was all very racy and scandalous.. Brother1 (Tolian) is taking up the father’s trade (very serious about the family business and wants to live up to expectations of an oldest son….mother thinks he works too hard). Brother2 (Gentius) is a historian (know’s of Alistar professionally, not personally, but have corresponded on historical matters….they disagree on some sticking point…..he is very bookish….we get along well.). Sister4 (Marissa) is a bard (serves in the Elreddi Army as a scout….bit of a wildchild….like her mother). Brother5 ( Gaius) is a bouncer/part-owner at a tavern….has been saving his money and he and friends opened the tavern….not clear where the money came from.

Sparrow has an Uncle Orasi (mother’s brother) who occasionally visits. He still lives with the Rhenee and is one of the few of her people with whom she (or her children) still has contact. Sparrow is on very friendly terms with Uncle Orasi (whom he resembles very much and whom he suspects is an Arcanist of some sort).

Sparrow has established effective use of spells for intelligence gathering, protections, and firepower as needed. During the Battle of Sky’s Wrath, he had been on a scouting mission and ended up fighting in the ranks with none other than Master Shadwell. Shadwell recognized his valor during the worst of the battle and recommended to his master that he be elevated to Initiate Level. During the battle, Sparrow very nearly lost his life and at that point opted to take a sentinel…..

Has a familiar: a sparrow (perhaps use the raven stats….or could I come up with something appropriate) named Zephyr. Zephyr likes to sing and sometimes seems startled when spoken to (a bit of an airhead…I’d recommend)…..Change this as you see fit.

Sparrow is the nickname that his mother called him “my little sparrow”.

Sparrow knows a lot of people who travel a lot due to his father’s import/export business. He has a friend in the Imperial Headhunters (Shade maybe…..whomever you like).

The Blackwolf did business with his father prior to being outed as a gangster by the Emperor’s Hammer…..Mother never approved.

Currently riding a horse named Rutigliano who has “two-words”….Extreme Diarrhea….Always seems to try to go on farm animals….esp. pigs. Very odd. That is unless you’d like for me to carry on with Amato…

I’m thinking the voice will be a Irish/Scottish/Cockney mix….we’ll see. Any recommendations/requests…I could do a German or Indian/Egyptian accent too? Anything works for me really.

I imagine that this is will likely be pretty boring for all but I thought “why the hell not?”
