Name: Gary Jaxom [Alias; Real name is not something he discloses to many people]
Appearance: Gary stands at three feet and seven inches high, with shoulder length black hair that is cut neatly, but can appear frayed during and after a battle. He wears a black robe with a cowl around it, hiding his facial features most of the time.
Underneath the robe, he wears black leather armor above a black tunic, and wears black leather pants with a belt going around the waistband. Strapped to the belt on his right-hand side is a pouch for his throwing knives (up to 30 can be held in it). On his left, there is a loop for holding his mace (used when he needs the the damaging power). The scabbards for his short sword and his long knife, his favored weapons for combat, are strapped across his back. For footwear, he wears black boots commonly seen on those adventuring, though his are a bit worn as he hasn't replaced them in about a year.
On the rare occasion he puts the cowl down outside of battle, one can see that his face is covered with scars and scratches, indicating a life lived fighting. The two most prominent scars that are visible lie on his face and throat. The scar on his face runs from the inside tip of his right eyebrow to the middle of his left cheek; this scar is a deep purple due to the severity of the wound. The scar on his throat runs across his vocal cords, from when he was younger and got into a fight with someone who was harassing a barmaid. To this day, his voice is lower-toned and more gravelly than before.
The only neat thing about his face is the black goatee that he keeps neatly trimmed. If one were to look into his slate-gray eyes, they would be lucky to see any emotion at all.
Basic Personality Traits: Gary tends to keep his emotions hidden at all times, but under extreme circumstances, he will let his emotional wall break down. Naturally, he is taciturn, talking to few and making friends with even less. When he is facing down an opponent, he keeps his level, emotionless demeanor unless he gets pissed off. When he gets pissed off, he can fly into an uncontrollable rage, and will even attack team mates when angered, and will refuse to give the reason. As for those that manage to get him in a good mood, they would swear that it was a different person entirely, almost as if there were two personas living in the one body. As for whether or not that is true, no one has been able to determine.
Brief History: Gary doesn't talk about his past much, and will do what he can to turn the subject away from it. The only thing that is really known about him is that he is a famous blade-for-hire (in other words a mercenary) who rarely fails his missions.
