The present form of Callum, is a cockroach; hardy insects commonly viewed as pests – especially for being attracted to warm buildings and unattended food in urban areas. Famously skittish, they tend to flee larger creatures and bright lights.

Despite his appearance, Callum is still fond of delicious foods and rare drinks, and spends a great deal of his free time watching over his master from the shadows or his pockets, with an unending vigil. He continues to pester Bresal and the other adventurers for sips of wine and nibbles of sweet meats, sometimes sneaking into their packs to sample whatever treats they might have hidden there.

Bio:

Callum was first summoned in 21st Savor, TR 1049.

Callum was squished by a large boulder on the 1st of Shorn, TR 1049, and upon returning to Thornkeep, Bresal summoned him once more.

On the 5th of Hammer, TR 1050, Callum met an untimely end after taking a direct blast from Mother Nanns Iceclaws Ice Storm, which also severely wounded Bresal, knocking him unconscious and nearly killing him. Callum was re-summoned soon thereafter.

On the 6th of Nolus, Bresal altered Callum into the form of a cockroach.

A Firefoot Fox appears as a small, large-eared fox possessing a distinctive pattern of flame-colored fur around their paws, rather than the typical black “socks” of more common vulpines. Firefoot Foxes are regarded as good luck symbols, and by extension their uniquely colored pelts are prized by furriers. A group of Firefoot Foxes are known as a “Skulk”.

Callum is the fox-form spirit, summoned by Bresal Darkharrow to act as his familiar, taking the form of a Firefoot Fox. Fascinated by fey things, it seemingly has a mind of its own when confronted by these features, and has proven quite independent-minded. Callum loves three things; attention, delicious foods and rare drink. When not presented with these things, Callum garners attention from all around him by both subtle and increasingly outlandish behaviour. He demands only the finest chocolates, the sweetest of meads.
