Wearing worn traveller’s clothes and carrying a bulging pack on his back, this bearded middle-aged man saunters down the road whistling a jaunty tune.
Timo Hopea (N middle-aged male human cleric [Behron] 3) wanders the trails of Ashlar communing with his god and spreading word of the Farwanderer. Unsurprisingly, Timo is well-travelled and has been everywhere of note in the duchy. He also hears many interesting rumours and titbits on the road and happily exchanges news with all he meets (preferably over an ale or two).
Personality: Timo is friendly and loves being outside—he hates being cooped up for more than a day or two and has a restless spirit. He believes in live and let live, but is inquisitive. A wanderer he has nowhere to really be most of the time, and happily attaches himself to other groups of travellers—all the better to preach the Farwanderer’s message.
Mannerisms: Timo often whistles popular tunes softly to himself. He prefers jaunty, upbeat songs. He loves learning new songs which he practises obsessively until he gets them right).
Hook: The PCs encounter Timo on the road, and he asks to join them for a short while. Shortly thereafter, he begins preaching the Farwanderer’s message.
