Dart, halfling bard

D'Artagnan Took (Dart) is a male halfling Bard and troubadour played by Alex Dickson


A tall (3'8") and limber (80lbs) halfling, with handsome and pleasing features, blue eyes, blonde hair and goatee, and a nonchalant, debonaire manner. He looks to be in young adulthood (born Winter 789), fit and trim, with a graceful step, and dexterous hands.

D'Artagnan will usually be well dressed in a courtly cavalier fashion: tall soft boots, shirt and pants, with a fancy jacket, and a fine hat sporting blue ostrich plumes. He will likely be wearing a rapier and main-gauche on his belt, and may also be carrying a lute.


D'Artagnan spends much of the time at his family home in Seacroft, but can be found entertaining in taverns around Carzala. Some people will know that he is the son of Guild member Mary-M.


D'Artagnan is a member of the College of Bardic Magics and a troubadour of some skill, while his other abilities run to more military pursuits.


D'Artagnan grew up in and around Seacroft, often helping out his grandfather Aloysius Took, the publican of the Adventurer's Rest tavern.

DragonQuest Personality Profile

List your skills (including College)
What motivated you to study each of these skills?
Bard's College
I spent a lot of time in taverns. Listening to stories near and far. Growing up in a family of adventurers most likely inspired me to learn Bardic magics. The idea of telling stories, the power of words. It also seemed to be the more fitting college for me. Although, the spells contained within the college are very... situational and rarely practical. Mocking a foe is great, but creating an ear you can listen through with Clairaudience... not so much.
Learning to be a performer, playing instruments and such was part of being a Bard. I find it relaxing playing music. Every day, when it's a moment to rest, I play my instruments mainly to tune them. 
While some might find it stuffy, I like visiting courts and palaces, mingling with guests. Being a part of formal dances and Entertaining guests.
Military Scientist
Having knowledge of the battlefield and tactics can certainly be useful on an adventure. You don't know when you'll be ambushed. (Skirmish and Aerial) 
You might say, "of course the Halfling is a Thief". My mother (Mary-M) hates that stereotype but having training from your grandfather (Aloysius Took) who was once the Guild's Thief certainly helps in rare cases. 
Being a Rapier wielder, being a Warrior is a major skill for me. Fighting duels and back-to-back in fights like in the stories. You could say it inspired me to practice. 
Mainly to take care of my Rapier and Main Gauche
Low Rank but it's good to have some cooking skill. Mainly from helping my grandfather at the Adventurer's Rest tavern.
Accomplishments you are proud of.
Unknown for now
Speculate on the ideal relationship.
Hmm... Having a partner who will be there for you. To pick you back up from your lowest point, to fight side-by-side with you. Someone who won't betray or abandon you. Might not be an ideal relationship, but an ideal partner.
