"Bone-Dry" Brian is a pirate and warlock.

Biography

Brian hails from a disease-ridden Kandarian port village, where he was taught how to sail while working on a fishing trawler. As a young man, Brian moved to the city of Yanille to become an apprentice wizard. He studied the magic of flesh, blood and bone, hoping to learn some curative or immunizing spells. As he started to gain power over the body, Brian was tempted by the secrets of necromancy. He traveled abroad, colluding with demons, necromancers, warlocks, witch doctors and the ZMI to learn fragments of forbidden lore.
Necromancy

Young Brian successfully reanimates a skeleton.

Brian grew to be a powerful warlock, though he had little money to his name. Turning to piracy, he reanimated a skeleton crew and salvaged a ghost ship, naming it the Coffin. As an overt threat, Brian was targeted by the Customs and Excise Officers. They surrounded his ship, destroyed his crew, arrested him, confiscated his treasure and left him to rot in prison.

Conflict

Personality

Brian is egocentric and has no regard for ethics. He works well with others, though rarely places his full trust in anyone. He carefully considers the words of others and rarely agrees to anything, a habit picked up from his demonic negotiations. He lacks disgust and fear, seeing only beauty in the macabre.

Abilities

Brian's magic gives him power over the mind, body and soul. He can charm the weak-minded, summon imps and zombies, turn both the living and deceased into undead minions, manipulate the form of organic matter and understand the speech of ghosts. In battle, he uses blood essence to empower and heal himself while doing the opposite to his enemies with a necrotic aura.
