Thaeuss - Elven Binder, played by Stephen.

Well dressed in dark colours, light build, fine Elven appearance. Height: 6' 1" Weight: 120 lbs Usually accompanied by a golem or two, man-servant & bodyguard.

History

Little has been revealed about Thaeuss' history. How much of this is because Thaeuss has not revealed it and how much is because even Thaeuss does not know is unknown. It is known that he is over 1,000 years old, but seems to have little knowledge of any events more than about 50 years ago.

For most of the time Thaeuss has been a guild member he has appeared a bitter and wasted elf, older than his claimed years.
This year has seen some significant changes with his skin regaining a more natural colour, old scars healing, gaining health and vitality, and most recently (early Summer 806) the appearance of a youthful Elf of 42.

Services Available

From time to time Thaeuss has offered his magical and mundane services to fellow guild members, for a price. The price seems to vary a lot depending on who is asking and when.

Info for GMs

Description
Dark-haired male elf, average (elven) height and build, fair to look upon (PB 19 / 21 to Elves and other Fae) youthful looking but with old eyes.
Around town and the guild he is generally well dressed in expensive classic style rather than the latest fads.
Adventuring he wears odd looking leather (impskin) armour, a solid (mithril) breastplate completely covered by a plain black tabard, and a plain black (magical) cloak.
Thaeuss carries no visible weapons but is often accompanied by bodyguard/servant golems.
Visible Value
Thaeuss tries to minimise his apparent net worth, surface (non-magical) estimate would be 1,500sp tops.
Almost everything he is wearing is magical, if the concealed breastplate and other concealed and itemised items are included he is wearing and carrying well over 100,000sp worth of equipment.
