Master Ricard "Ricochet" Shearwater, "Swirling Fury"
Half-Elf Fighter (Swashbuckler)
Master Ricard of clan Shearwater, also known as “Ric of the Shearwater”, or “Ricochet”, is a young man born in Mornhaven, the City of Bright Sails, and whose natural good looks have taken him far in life. Of average height and build, Ricard has a very fair complexion, as a heritage of his sylvan ancestry. His black hair and blue, piercing eyes always make him stand out in a crowd, and there is no denying that by the gauge of humanity, he is very attractive. Ricard moves with a certain grace, and has very good hearing (+1 to all “Hearing” Perception checks). His eyesight and voice are otherwise unremarkable.
Ric is always debonair and sly, as though he always has some trick up his sleeve, and the knowledge of this makes him somewhat overconfident. In addition, he always feels compelled to use stealth whenever possible against his foes, and likes to sneak and surprise them. Many of the people of Green Dagger refer to him as “master”, in deference to his constant concern over their well-being, and his young consort, Mistress Vesina “Shearwater”, who has taken over most of the manor’s household duties.
Ricard of Clan Shearwater, was born on the 7th of Kythorn, the 6th month of the year, best known as “The Time of Roses”. That he was raised in a wealthy environment is undeniable upon meeting Ricochet, but he does not discuss the matter, nor does he talk much about his time away from the creche and his friends. He does, however, consistently talk about the various gambling dens of Mornhaven with some fondness.
He had captured a goblin warrior named Gore for a time, in order to learn the Goblin language. During his first expedition into a dungeon, however, while bearing a torch and most of Ricochet’s heavy supplies and equipment, he was swarmed by a large pack of hungry rats and eaten alive. The trauma of this event seems to have made Ric somewhat spiteful towards other small creatures.
Ric has also taken a fancy to the young courtesan Vesina “Ironstone” that he rescued from her “master”, treating her well with gifts of clothing and other small treasures over the last few months. He is also doggedly pursuing an interest in Lady Tiressia, having learned tracking and gaining fellowship among the good-aligned huntsmen of Thornkeep. Many of the folk who reside on Green Dagger Farm have begun to see him as the manor’s leader.
