The Scales of War
Captain of the Overlook Watch (Former Paladin of the Sundered Chain)
Kalad is the Dwarven paladin the players rescued from the Monastery of the Sundered Chain after it was overrun by Orcs and Orogs.
Kalad is tall for a dwarf (4’4") and thickly muscled. He has thick black hair pulled into a pony tail. His beard is in the process of growing back after it was savagely cut from his face while being tortured by his captors. His injuries both physical and mental were extensive. Although recovered from the events in the Monastery, he has a haunted look about him, for he’s plagued with the horrors of the attack and he won’t know peace until the orcs are stopped.
Deeply pious, as one would expect of a holy warrior, Kalad spends a portion of each day in deep prayer, calling out to his god for guid¬ance, comfort, and a renewal of his resolve to continue his fight against the darkness. Outside these private times, Kalad is friendly, if gruff, constant in his support, but always detached. He doesn’t have much use for humor and ignores the banter of those around him. He has a mission and he intends to see it to its end. He might be reserved in his relations, but the heroes couldn’t ask for a more committed ally. Kalad sees the party as divine agents— heroes sent by the gods to save him and reveal to him his life’s purpose. Thus, he watches the characters for further revelations that might shed light on what lies in store for him next.
