Pale, chalk-like earth that could be mistaken for snow at a distance rises in gentle mounds, as far as the eye can see in this desolate part of an otherwise beautiful place. Here and there, shapes and textures break up the alabaster ground: headstones, plaques, long-dead flowers...
The 287-year-old dwarven conman-turned-cleric used many names across his long life: Tall Gram, The Gazelle, The Right Good Duke Ellington, Jasper Honeydew, and Guntir. He was born Thoragrim Truesteel, and began his descent into the agent of chaos he was when he met the other members of the Finger Gang when the love of his life, Brunhilde, was slain. Slowly, he began to put other's needs before his own, though hesitantly. He saved each of his friends' lives at least once, and is known in Kol Taram as The Slayer of Nightmares after he supposedly dealt the killing blow to Kienscale, the deep dragon that had lain siege to Kol Taram.

A cleric to Helm, the old gnomish tinkerer combined clockwork machinery and divine magic to form miraculous prosthetics that drew people from across Alberon to Port Quinn.

He plunged into necromancy, joining the Midnight Assembly and creating Assembled Souls, twisted amalgamations of bone and metal.

The friendly firbolg Thistle left The Hollow Lodge on a pilgrimage to find an offering worthy of bringing to The Heart of Sunrest, following an ancient tradition of the Upperbow firbolgs. Fond of plants, including copious amounts of pipeleaf, he was friendly to a fault, strong, and a foil to the otherwise chaotic party. Thistle formed bonds with everyone he met, but especially with Guntir, who felt protective toward the "naive" firbolg. Upon his death, Guntir kept some of his odd clothing, and Morwen tattooed a thistle branch on her arm.
