Edrec is an elven arcane hierophant, a follower of a path of magical study which combines both arcane magic and the natural power of the druids.

Appearance and personality[edit | edit source]

Edrec is cruel and bitter. His hatred of the human race knows no bounds. He has no sense of fair play or mercy, and believes that no method of killing is too harsh for humans.

He carries a longbow and scimitar, and wears leather armor. He is frequently accompanied by his familiar companion, the dire boar named Hruth.[1]

Edrec is neutral evil in alignment.[1]

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Spellcasting[edit | edit source]

Using the unique skill of an arcane hierophant, Edrec possesses skill with both arcane magic and druidic magic, able to treat arcane magic as if it were simply another force of nature.

Edrec has the ability to cast wizard spells of up to 4th level, and druid spells of up to 4th level.

Druidic abilities[edit | edit source]

Edrec has several nature-related abilities. He can assume the form of an animal, move through thorns and overgrown foliage without issue, and travel through wilderness without leaving a trace.

Languages[edit | edit source]

An addition to the Common tongue, Edrec speaks Elven, Draconic, Sylvan, and the languages of the gnolls and druids.[1]

Treasure[edit | edit source]

Edric carries various magically enhanced equipment, including his leather armor, wooden shield, and a scimitar. He carries a longbow with forty arrows, of which ten are silvered and ten tipped with cold iron. He wears an amuelt of health, and carries two wands: one of cure light wounds, and one of magic missile. In an emergency, he can rely on a single potion of invisibility.[1]

Relationships[edit | edit source]

Enemies[edit | edit source]

Edrec makes the human race his sworn enemy. He wields the power of nature to harass and destroy all humans who encroach upon his forest home, believing his actions justified by the endless human exploitation of the woods for for cleared farmland, timber, and furs.[1]

Allies and minions[edit | edit source]

Edrec is allied with Yeshelvarra, a young adult green dragon. Yeshelvarra accepts any loot taken from the victims of Edrec's attacks as payment for her services.

Edrec's familiar companion—both familiar and animal companion—is a dire boar named Hruth. He can cast spells through this creature.

While many arcane hierophants gather together in informal circles, it is not known with certainty if Edrec is a current member of such a group.
