Elgar has lived most of his life in the woods, running away from the authorities. He has long greasy hair, with twigs and leaves braided into it. His feral eyes always looking for a weakness. Elgar rarely washes and is usually dressed in filthy overalls studded with leaves to act as a crude camouflage. He has gathered a group of like minded individuals to prey upon weary travelers.

PERSONALITY

Elgar is a ruthless man with no love for anyone but himself. He has a real problem with authority of any kind.

Author's Note: Elgar is meant to be a generic bandit or bandit leader, but could easily be used as any kind of thuggish adversary, or with a change of alignment, a trusted ally.
