Deveris01
User: Brian
Campaign: Sanctuary
Race: Nisibisi
Gender: Male
Role: Other
Class/Level: Nisi warlock/Novice
Description:
Deveris is of average height, but his glossy black hair, dead black eyes, and pale skin make it fairly clear that he is of Nisi origins. Since he knows that most folk will distrust him on sight, he makes no pretenses at flase friendliness, and instead plays on the common mistrust of Nisi and fear of Nisi sorcery to help him in "dealing" with most folk.

Deveris tends to wear dark clothing, well suited to skulking in dark alleys, or simply increasing his dark, intimidating demeanor.
Background:
Acquaintance: Toman is an apothecary, one of Alton Stulwig’s competitors. Deviris has befriended Toman, and does occasional odd jobs for him. He originally made contact when he learned that Toman’s son had disappeared and was believed to have been abducted (Deviris suspects by Dyareelans). He also considers Toman a possible connection for illicit substances (primarily poisons) to be used against Dyareelans.

Passion: Deviris has a passion for Rankan court music. As a Nisibisi, he is somewhat embarrassed by his love for Rankan music, but he finds some of the melodies so enchanting and bewitching that he simply can’t help himself. He has begun to play a violin-like instrument, central to some of the music he finds so alluring—and he longs to be able to produce the same mournful sounds he enjoys so much, but he doesn’t have many opportunities to listen to or study Rankan music.

Enemy: On several occasions, Deviris has had run-ins with Madron Thalesh, an Ilsigi wizard from Santuary’s Mage Guild. A rivalry has grown between the two, and Deviris and madron have both worked to foil the other’s plans on several occasions.
