Personality Traits: (5+6) The World of Men is easier for me to understand when I can relate it to the nature. It is the things to which there are no comparisons that I find confusing. Wealth, for example. Wealthy men are often times the most powerful in the World of Men yet you can neither eat gold nor slay a rampaging beast with it.

Ideals: (Change) Life is like the seasons, in constant change, and we must change with it. (Chaotic)

Bond: (2) An undo injury to the unspoiled wilderness of my home is an injury to me.

Flaw: (6) Don’t expect me to save those who can’t save themselves. It is nature’s way that the strong survive and the weak perish.


Smazanny’s origins are a mystery to him. The first thing he remembers is being in the forest as a young child. Whether he had been abandoned there as a baby or gotten lost as a toddler, all he had every known was living in the wilds without his parents. Nature itself had provided for him instead. The animals had always accepted him and he learned how to survive on his own from them by observing how they hunt and gather food.

Civilization shunned him though. In the few times he stumbled upon a village or a city, they would chase him out with swords and arrows. He learned to avoid the World of Men entirely after a while.

He quickly rose to the top of the food chain in his own domain though. Not having claws, fur or feathers of his own, he took them from his prey and wore them to intimidate other predators. Almost a fully grown man now, he had a chance encounter with a ranger who mistook him for an owlbear. After a short skirmish, Smazanny tasted defeat and waited for the man to kill him as he felt nature dictated.

Instead the half-orc ranger, who Smazanny learned to call Mossman, took him under his wing and taught him about the world of man and the ways of the Ranger. Smazanny was resistant at first but, when he realized that weapons and armor would make him a better predator, he became more enthusiastic about integrating into society. Still, he spends as little time in the city as needed to make a few coins to maintain his gear. Nature provides him with everything else he could need.
