Bio:

Short but stout, with close cropped blond hair & sqinty eyes from a youth at sea, Kankad came inland to see the wonders of land for a change, and perhaps because as a worshiper of Aon his captain thought he attracted too many storms. He came to Winterwall via the caravan routes, working as a guard & porter. He spends freely, but makes some concessions to prudence – maintaining his chain armor, battle axe, shield, and darts in top fighting condition, keeping himself & minions well supplied and fed. Maybe if he strikes it rich, he’ll go back, buy a ship, and be a captain – even if it’s only of a tiny fishing boat. For now he’s had two good runs looting the Ruins of the Winding Stair acquired 2 minions and is considering a career as a dungeoneering guide & consultant. Normally seen wearing chain armor over a canvas smock & simple leather tunic & breaches, with big sea boots, a large warm cloak. He has a chainmail coif & simple metal cap, but only wears them when prepared for combat. He usually carries his battle axe one handed & his shield (marked with a sea otter bearing a merchant’s scale). In town he’s inseperable from One-Armed Tom & nowadays Tom’s nephew Two-Arm Phil is often hanging about. When adventuring Kankad & Phil take turns carrying Kankad’s heavy equipment pack while Tom carries the ration pack. He is well known about the taverns of Winterwall and seems to be mostly on good terms with dwarves and has been known to help clerics of Loass (if they can bear some jokes about clerics in general & Loass in particular).

After the Quest for the Beer Recipes of the Charred Inn he and his henchman One-Armed Tom came back seemingly rolling in gold and had an epic debauch in the bars and inns of Winterwall. Rumor does say one of the other adventurers died and a minion went missing. When they sobered up they put up a sign as adventurers for hire and cautiously let out that for the right price they’ld guide people to the ruins where they had struck it rich. This lead to the Expedition to the Ruins of the Winding Stairs assisting quite a large party. This time Kankad & Tom lead 7 other adventurers down to the Ruins beyond the Fallow Fields, eventually the party came back, richer than they had left, but missing 2 adventurers but having picked up another adventurer on the way. Word round Winterwall is that Kankad & Co. is a risky way to make money, but they do their job & are upfront about the risk to their clients.
