Andarist the relentless
Sword of the Dragon Emperor
Andarist is a member of the Humakti (Sword of the Dragon Emperor). They are the elite special forces of the Imperial Army. With a swift blade they serve imperial justice to those outside the reach of the courts. Some are Night Stalkers patrolling lonely marshes and haunted crossroads for undead. Some also serve as Shock Troopers for they are implacable warriors and excel at breaking enemy lines. Andarist is known within his order as a Vow Sealer, he has been trained to conduct oaths; seal agreements, expose liars and most importantly punish oath-breakers.
Andarist has been sent to a backwater village called Bellinthorne. He has been instructed to report to and protect the Imperial Magistrate Alaric the Priest. He does not understand why he has been done this dishonor or how this priest could be of any consequence to his imperial masters. However, Andarist is Humakti and once put on a path of action, he is unwavering in the pursuit of his goal.
Andarist appears to be a tall warrior of grim aspect, bristling with a variety of swords about his person. He wears a set of mismatched spaulders, vambraces, greaves and breastplate. Each of the 7 pieces was taken from one of the oath-breakers he has hunted down and ended. The bandoleer of 5 daggers is his only ranged weaponry. In battle he seems completely oblivious to all form of fear (including fear for his survival).
He has been overheard uttering this vow before battle: “As of this moment, we are all dead. We go into battle to reclaim our lives. We do this gladly, for we are Humakti. Remember victory is life!”
