Scooter, a veteran from many battles and wars, has seen and been through more than most. As a consequence he is suffering from a slight case of post-traumatic stress syndrome, or “magic-missile shell shock”. This has skewed his judgment of the world and made him cynical and sarcastic.

Azrael is a natural outcast. Being Tiefling he was often a victim if discrimination. As is common with most of his race he dreamed of power. Becoming a warlock, though a stereotypical choice for his kind, seemed to be the best route. He claims that his fate is already tied to evil demons and so he must inherently become an evil power. But deep inside there is a conscience that prevents him from becoming truly evil. He has disturbing evidence that he might be a descendant of Emperor Bael Turath.

She believes strongly in the will of Melora and her strictures.
