Melee-centric ranger with canine companion
Tophos, 28, was born to a frontier village in the forests of the south. At the time of birth, a canine companion arrived named Flameos (given name) which seemed immediately to bond with the newborn. The canine companion oddly silences eye occasion magic-user found fleeing the country, and seems not to age normally (at 28 years, seems no more than mid-life).
Tophos stayed in the frontier villages until early adulthood and left for the big cities to the North. Not fitting in, he volunteered his muscle for the Order of Evula, never joining it fully and not being accepted.
An amicable outcast, suggestive of his frontier upbringing, he volunteered for the portal mission, his fate awaiting him.
