Alar
Alar
Hailing from the Ashenvale in the Easternmost of the Five Kingdoms, Alar works as a court wizard in the seaside citadel of Caer Caladh. Training as a swordsman in the Regent’s Army, he kept his innate magic powers a secret during less tolerant times. Now a respected battle-mage, he splits his time between swordplay and spellcraft. Alar is earnest, sometimes arrogant, but loyal to a fault… with a painfully archaic sense of humour.

Chronically single, Kim is a pub-trivia champion and on winter weekends teaches skiing at the local bunny hill.
