Unlikely Heroes of Fallcrest
Kael fell on hard times and took a job as a dock hand until he was approached by Niir, a Gnomish Wizard, who needed a bodyguard for a few jobs. The Goliath has enormous strength and endurance, but garnishes an easy-going attitude once battle ends.
He gets along easily with his fellow adventurers, and is well-liked by most everyone he encounters. Kael is well aware that people take advantage of his good intentions, and often defers to Niir, whom he respects, for his more hardened edge and negotiating skill.
Kael enjoys a good adventure, and keeps an eye out for melee weapons and armor.
