Shadow of the Sea Lord - Pregen #4 - Qart Eyesore

Qart Eyesore
Level: 3 / Magician / Artificer


Qart is clever for a goblin. Clever especially with items of technology. With a small amount of magical talent as well, it was no surprise that he was able to get himself employed by an Inquisitor. What could have been a lifelong career of hunting demons was cut short when an experimental device freed a bound demon. The Inquisitor took a rather dim view of this failure on Qart's fault and the goblin had to flee to avoid becoming the next heretic hunted down by his former master.

In short order Qart found himself in Freeport, where the somewhat looser laws would ensure that any past misdeeds on the continent would probably not catch up with him. It has been a dozen years since all of that and Qart has managed to eke out a decent living building specialty items and repairing machinery in the port city.

His history aside Qart manages to stay gracious toward his clientele, which, combined with his expertise, keeps him in coin. Unfortunately that civilized veneer hides a stingy and self-centered outlook that comes from the hardships of his past. Deep down Qart is still haunted by his past mistake, and the one hole in the armor of his self interest are potential demonic incursions.
