Bio:

Backstory

  • Lloyd came from a modest background. He grew up admiring the wealthy nobles of his hometown and vowed to find a way to the upper class.
  • He’s also lazy. So he figured the easiest way to make money was to cheat at gambling.
  • Lloyd was excellent at cheating, to the point where he became overly cocky.
  • One day, he and a particularly dreadful male elf were playing poker. The elf wagered his soul. Lloyd thought he was joking and agreed. Lloyd lost.
  • The elf demanded his payment, but Lloyd refused.
  • “Coward,” the elf muttered as he disappeared in a puff of smoke.
  • Lloyd went home with an uneasy feeling. He arrived just in time to witness the elf completing a teleportation spell with Lloyd’s sister held captive.
  • Lloyd sought every lead he could find in search of his sister. After extensive research, Lloyd discovered a way to obtain magic powers through forging a pact with an Archfey.
  • He summoned an Archfey, the Prince of Fools, and told the deity his story.
  • The Archfey agreed to help Lloyd. The elf that captured Lloyd’s sister had formed a pact with a rival Archfey, the Green Lord. The Prince of Fools saw Lloyd as an opportunity to destroy his nemesis.
  • And so began Lloyd’s search for the elf that kidnapped his sister.

Personality traits

  • Lloyd started off Chaotic Neutral but changed to Chaotic Good after his sister was kidnapped.
  • The Prince of Fools gave Lloyd the power of incredible charisma. Though many recognize Lloyd as a jerkwad, others find him oddly charming.

Other notes

  • At one point during his research, Lloyd discovered an ornate brooch of Dwarven design along the Svalich Woods near Borovia. Naturally, he pocketed it.
