Brega is the middle child of 7 in a family of magic users. While her siblings all scattered to far away lands long ago, Brega apprenticed to her father and learned the art of bookbinding. After their library and bookshop was destroyed by a horde of demons, Brega buried the pain and trauma with a considerable amount of alcohol. And now she finds herself mostly sober and following a group of adventurers into the great unknown where she hopes to expand her magical knowledge and put her skills to use.
Dar-Wynn has a highly developed sense of alcohol appreciation. It stated at a young age with a dare. After she got though her first mug of ale she discovered the appeal and subsequently the after effects. This developed into a brewing passion such that you’d most often find her at the local tavern trying out the competition and alternately trying to sell her latest Arcana Brewery creation.
Her passion was destroyed with the swig of a potion that makes alcohol turn to water in her mouth. Now her new driving goal is to find a way to impress her God, Cayden Cailean, and hope for a miracle to cancel the potions effects.
Half-Elf Rogue. Disavowed, illegitimate son of a wealthy human father and poor Elf mother (both still alive). His mother is Ty Switchback's older sister, and she fell into drugs and drink, forcing Davian to become a burglar. He often broke into his father's mansion to help feed the family, and had a reputation for coming through with reliable money and food for neighborhood kids. He sees adventuring as his way of going legit, but still happily relieves the wealthy of their goods to help the poor, gamble, or search for neat equipment. He is excited by infiltrating difficult places. Hope of redemption for his father leads him to give others second chances. May give away valuables if convinced someone needs them more. He dreams of travelling and looting the world, and running a thieves' guild that puts big shots in their place.
