Dwaecor, Champion of Faerinaal

Dwaecor is dedicated to Faerinaal. He can be called with a planar ally or planar binding spell.

Many decades ago, Dwaecor once rendered a service to the Court of Stars. As a reward, Faerinaal brought the young djinni to the Court of Stars and presented him with Artilf, the weapon of a former champion slain in the battle against evil.

Captivated with the beauty of the queen and her consort, Dwaecor swore his allegiance to Faerinaal on the spot and has never wavered. His tasks take him throughout the planes, and he often travels the elemental planes on Faerinaal's errands, since he is uniquely qualified to do so.

Dwaecor wears loose blue trousers, a red sash, and no shirt. His muscular arms bulge under his bracers, and his ancestral weapon is strapped at his waist. His chest is covered with star-shaped tattoos. Dwaecor has discovered a .number of powers both within himself and within his scimitar as an anointed knight.
