Description

Cephalus, Satyr Chieftain

Image

Age: 176
Height: 7'8”
Weight: 540lbs
Physical Description:
In the animal kingdom, authority is dictated by size, and among a group of his kin, it is simple to determine that Cephalus is in charge. With four curling horns, and his green slitted eyes, Cephalus is hardly the most attractive of a race purportedly capable of charming maidens from their beds. His already frightening features are marred by many battle-scars, a further sign of his prominence within his tribe. His heavily muscled torso is equally scarred, and covered in blue spiral tattoos, that seem to shift and change like the pattern of ivy against an aged stone wall. His stocky, reverse jointed goat-legs are covered in coarse, black hair, but through the tangle, further tattoos can be seen.

Personality:
Although his bestial appearance might suggest a creature incapable of even the most basic thought, Cephalus is a cunning and wily beast, able to win others over through sheer guile, alongside his considerable strength. While diplomacy is not his first recourse, when faced with insurmountable odds, Cephalus is capable of settling things peacefully, for the sake of his tribe.

Equipment:
Weapons:
Cephalus' primary weapon is a two-handed, single-headed axe almost as tall as he is, with a shaft carved from the still-beating heartwood of an oak tree. The head is engraved with runes, enchanting every strike with the ability to drain the vitality of the victim. Attached to his left gauntlet is a wedge-shaped blade of metal, projecting a foot over his brawny fist. This allows him to parry blows, with both the point of the blade, and the flare of metal that covers most of his forearm and a good portion of his upper bicep, and to deal massive damage with punches.

Coiled around his waist is a whip woven from briar and lash-vines. Combined with his magical abilities, this weapon is almost prehensile, able to coil around limbs and inflict massive lacerations and transmit poisons. The whip is tipped with a three-pronged steel star. Sheathed under Cephalus' left arm is a steel crescent blade, engraved with similar runes to the long-axe.

Armour:
Cephalus' armour is focussed around his gut and arms, forged from heavy plates of meteoric iron, tightly cinched with leather strapping. The gut-plate extends past his groin, with lamed pouldrons protecting his shoulders.

So begins...

Cephalus's Story

The forest was his home. It was his domain. Cephalus stalked between the trees, the haft of his long-axe trailing in the leaf-litter as he reached out to shield his bulk from the figures on the edge of the tree-line, his powers softly bending the foliage around him to cloak him in shadow and darkness.

Even from here he could taste the power of the Seelie, his fingers tightening on the grip of his axe. It was the other figure that gave him cause for concern. Outsiders did not belong on his lands.

By this time, he was close enough to eavesdrop on the conversation passing between the two, his magicks rendering him no more than a sliver of shadow against the blackness of the trees.

With the Seelie gone, Cephalus felt infinitely more confident about revealing himself. Straightening up to his full height, one hand under the head of the ax, the butt of the shaft pushed into the soft loam. The foliage bent back, the cape of shadows pealing away, his eyes flashing with brilliance.

"Be gone, Interloper." His voice was deep, ringing out like a peal of thunder over a distant sea.

His hoofed feet made no sound as Cephalus stomped forward, the ax still held upright, the whip at his waist twitching and writhing like a snake.

"It was not a request." The Satyr replied, stopping a few paces in front of the wizard, towering over the human, placing both hands on the shaft of his weapon.

Fenrias Hallvard emerged from a small hatch hidden amidst the brush. He checked his surroundings carefully - listening for disturbances in the foliage and sniffing the air.
