====== Created Using Wizards of the Coast D&D Character Builder ======
Edwyn Holland Hilbert Francis Collingsworth III (known as Ed to… no one) was born into a tiefling family that still retained some wealth and unclear but supposedly noble lineage. He would have had a quiet and peaceful life as an heir, were it not for the fact that the night he was born there was a strange astral phenomenon, which half forgotten tiefling beliefs regarded as a disturbing augur for the child’s future. As a result, his parents never really warmed up to him and had certain reservations about their offspring.
Growing up, Edwyn became increasingly interested in the paranormal and magical affairs, always wanting to contact the dead, summon creatures, and perhaps set a friend on fire with his mind. Naturally, this only increased his family’s preocupation, so he was sent to live with his uncle, Ganshes Collingsworth, who resided near Fallcrest and was known for two things: his acomplshments in the study of the arcane, and his utter failure to cure his nearly total deaffness.
However Ganshes would not share with him his mystic secrets, and would only allow him to inspect the simplest of the large volumes of forgotten lore, keeping from him the occult knowledge he so eagerly craved. Edwyn was regaled instead with a multitude of bad jokes, which he was assured could be equally as powerful. This turned out not to be the case.
Feeling scorned by his uncle (although he did find the jokes amusing) Edwyn stumbled upon a book pertaining to the dealings of demons, devils, and other fauna of the night. He was tempted, then, to pursue a quicker way towards his goal of achieving true power, and entered a covenant with an ancient entity. What consequences such dealings can have remain to be seen.
Edwyn shows a stoic exterior and tries to maintain an aristocratic pose, but has the heart of a clown. A terrible clown. He has indeed the annoying habit of dispensing bad jokes at the most innapropiate times. He was extremely embarassed at the start of his carrier by the sheer lack of accuracy that he had in his first clumsy attempts to wield his recently acquired eldricht powers. He has since then improved upon them significantly and is now a force to be reckonned with. However, his shame still haunts him, and will hurt himself if he misses a crucial hit.
His companions could not be more delighted for this.
Mannerisms and appearance
Standing at 6’ 2” Edwyn is rather tall by tiefling standards. His skin has a reddish hue and his head is crowned by a pair of imposing horns, which coupled with his black goatee provide him with a rather imposing visage.
Edwyn has the odd habit of uttering a “Uuuuuuhhhh” sound (like Guillermo Francella) when he senses trouble is near. He also would like for nobody to notice his big horns, and will be terribly ashamed if they are pointed out. He prefers to clothe in black leather to further intimidate his opponents, and also to better disguise the filfth that every adventurer faces when traveling the world.
Edwyn keeps a large collection of daggers with wich he juggles when bored, since he has yet to use them in combat, where he prefers a trusty wand that allows both for a blast of dark energy to emerge from his palm, and an occasional rabbit to emerge form his sleeve to amuse the younglings. That is of course, until he acquires a blade worthy of him.
Companions and allies
From his first adventures in Fallcrest and the surrounding areas, Edwyn’s been known to travel with an elven maiden with an extraordinary pair of… blades, a dragonborn girl who reminds him of the sea for she has the voice of a mermaid and the love of booze of a sailor, a dwarven cleric with a stunning lack of knowlege about religion; a dragonbron fighter carrying a dragon hide wherever he goes, and another dwarf that values nothing more than combat, save the riches that combat can grant. Edwyn thinks he is the sane one of the group, and has affectionally nicknamed the group “United colors of Bennethor”. Who or what is Bennethor is a mistery to this date.
