A taciturn young man who arrived at the city about half a year ago. Mentioned something about smugglers and 'lost my whole crew'. The few people who might have noticed him may really a slim, red-haired halfbreed going to whatever martial arts dojo or temple would take him and leaving just as mysteriously as he came, before finding permanent work as an adventurer. Has started to form a name for himself by racking up a high name of successfully completed missions; unlike most powerful goblinoid-blooded people he doesn't seem to have any interest in rising above his station, apparently content just to do what he's told and risk his life for coin. Or so he claims.

Recently seen a lot more in the Temple district, apparently having suddenly found faith. While he worships privately at the Temple of the Maker outside of the usual crowd, some have floated rumors that he sometimes hangs around at that subversive Temple of the Drowned Star.


An attractive, epicine youth just out of his teenage years, nonetheless gives the impression of someone with a lot on their mind. The first thing one would notice about him is that his appearance doesn't conform to his species; close inspection would reveal him to be a half-orc or bugbear, but his build is nothing like the rest of his species. Instead of being tall, he's about the height of a human. Instead of being hulking, he's almost androgynous. Whoever he is, he's a runt by goblinoid standards. Except for clear tells, such as elongated canines, slitted eyes, and a very soft grunt when he's not careful how he's speaking he'd look like an attractive, if androgynous human.

And even for a human, he's barely at the low end of average in weight and height. But despite all this still manages to project a certain presence. His skin is smooth and pale, his frame overall slender except for his wide shoulders and muscular arms and stomach. Kestrel's heart-shaped face is tomboyish, feminine even, with aristocratic features and serious (but doe-ish) dark blue eyes. Both of his eyelids are painted with cherry-red makeup. His dark red hair is a fluffy glade of needles, with the back part ending in a slim ponytail and a few feather-like tufts popping up slightly near his forehead.

His clothes are simple and functional. They look like they've been mended and sewn many times, but the fabric seems as clean as if it was never worn. He's wearing a pair of worn, but well-mended leather boots with a pair of brown quilt pants tucked into the cuffs. He's wearing a mesh shirt of black that goes to mid-thigh and past his elbows; on top of that is a dark blue tunic of soft angora, short-sleeved and a black hood on top. The bottom two buttons of his tunic are left undone, showing a cute navel underneath the mesh shirt. Around his neck is a silver pendant, terminating with a carved jade dragon. A pleasant smell of smoky, understated perfume seems to follow him, seeming to strengthen just when his pendant shines.
