Bio:

Gorram is a wizened old man with a stooped gait and a long, white beard. He is cantankerous and proud, but generally agreeable. He walks with a limp and is missing two fingers on his left hand. He bears many other scars of his tussles with the enemy, and he is not shy to show them off. He has been assigned to the Party as the ritualist in charge of carrying out the destruction of the Shadow Relics.

Gorram is one of the oldest humans still serving in the Covenant Militia. He was conscripted to fight for Saldana when he was barely strong enough to lift a sword; after he survived his first engagement with the undead, he showed some aptitude for wizardry, and he was one of the first students of the fledgling Covenant Artillery Corps (later renamed the Crimson Order), a unit of arcanists specializing in fire magic and other destructive spells.

Since that time, Gorram has dedicated his life to fighting the undead. He is the second-highest ranking member of the Crimson Order. He has spent much of the last decade training young wizards for battle. He did take a short sabbatical to journey to Kholm, where he performed arcane research with that nation’s greatest scholars. Such a meeting of the minds was unprecedented at the time; Kholm usually keeps to itself in matters of scholarship, due to fears about the secrets of the Waygate escaping their borders. If Gorram learned anything about that particular topic, he has kept it to himself.
