Gorthaur "Worst Wizard Ever" Shai'tan
Gorthaur is a 100-year-old high elf wizard (mechromancer). He is the only other survivor–along with Calderón–of the calamity that befell Hithliam. Gorthaur grew up in Hithliam and had begun planning his wedding to a beautiful elf named Melion when the disaster struck. Miraculously surviving, he tried to heal his dying love, using old tomes beyond his understanding. The books were necromantic in origin, and Gorthaur only succeeded in crippling his own leg while watching his beloved die. He resolved to study the necromantic arts to gain control of them. He and Calderón have been traveling together the last 28 years trying to figure out the source of his village’s destruction. His nickname is largely unearned.
Gorthaur currently wields Alda the Staff.
