Palen il Dalk is the larger half of the lizardfolk duo venturing from Crooked Lake. Originally, from the backwater wetlands, our hero had aspirations of making home in the nicer areas surrounding his home. He moved into high society and did his best to make ends meet, mainly working physical labor and river transport. However, in the end, he realized he was a country boy and belonged back home with loved ones. Not long after his return, he was reunited with his love, Lira and settled down. All seemed to well in his life, until a bizarre traveling prophet came to his village. This man was leader of the Red Wyrm and promised power and wealth to all that joined the cause. Almost over night, many citizens vanished, having fallen for his silver tongue lies. Among the villagers was his younger brother, Brotte. Unsure of where they were heading or what their true goal was, Palen swore he’d bring back his brother. With his beloved aiding him, they began their quest to rescue his brother, and if need be, crush any crazed cultist or false god that gets in their way.
Palen is a natural fighter who feeds off spirit of the battle. Not quite a mindless savage, but used to physical labor and roughhousing with others as a young lizard. He can be a bit rash and headstrong when he has his mindset on something. When it comes to his brother, nothing will stand in his way to bring him home. The bond is so strong that Palen will bring back Brotte on the brink of near death just to prevent further pain. Though the lack of care his brother shows lately makes it abit easier to club him and drag him home.
His fighting style is first to charge, shield and deal. He has a tendency to focus on the biggest threat and not move on until it’s down and out. He does know techniques to handle mobs, with a cleave or a swipe from the tail, but generally challenges his main opponent. He is a caring comrade to those in battle. If he can hit it, he will. If he can take a hit for you, he will. He gets his team morale from fighting along side his wife, Lira for as long as he can recall. Palen may not be the smartest individual and his “quick decisions” may bring more problems than solve, but put him in front and you’ll have a fine damaging wall.
