Dragon Scale Mail
This suit of scale mail armor was made from the first dragon that Raynar slew up in the mountains. The Large hard scales were taken and shaped into the armor by his father when he returned home from his hunt. They bear his father’s maker’s mark upon the left collar.
Type: Armor, Class: Heavy, Quality: Remarkable
Dragon Tooth Crown
The teeth of Raynar’s first kill where also taken by his mother and fashioned into a circlet that he wears around today. The teeth are positioned to lay across his skull perfectly and hold themselves in place. This somewhat morbid hunting trophy has been used to harness and channel Rayanr’s magical energies.
Type: Relic, Quality: Remarkable
This massive spear was made originally to be fired from a ballista style weapon. However when Raynar came across it it was just the right size for him to grip well, and wield as a spear. He named it the Dragon’s bane because the first creature that he killed with it was indeed a Dragon in the Mountain’s of Solaris.
Since then he has continued to hunt in the region almost specializing in hunting down and killing dragons. The original shaft of the ballista bolt has broken and been replaced While the large barbed spear head has been resharpened and maintained well over the years. The new haft for the spear was made from a young Osperian Sapling.
Taking the whole sapling and trimming it and debarking it before adding the spear head back to it. A sapling was used to allow the haft to be more flexible than the harder heart wood of an older Osperian tree. It would not do as well against hard rigid blows but it isn’t meant to be blocked with. The haft is a total of 15 feet long, and about 2 inches in diameter.
The large barbed spear head is easily 10 lbs, and a 10 lbs counter weight is on the other end of the spear giving it a hard hitting impact from either end. People smaller than most Gorgon’s or without similar strength would find this weapon to hard to wield properly at best.
Type: Weapon, Class: Heavy, Quality: Remarkable
Dragon Hide Shield
The softer underbelly of a dragon is weaker but its hide is still quiet protective and when made into leather and stretched for form can create quiet a nice shield with a few extra large Scales reinforcing its exterior as well.
Raynar's natural talent at controlling the air around him is so strong that he no longer even has to think about doing it. Anytime he is not actively using is Magical Attack for anything else the wind around him will start to move. If standing still it creates a nearly invisible wall of wind around him that keeps him cool in hot weather or warm in cold weather, To push raindrops away from his body to keep dry. If he is moving the air creates an actual slipstream in the direction that he is going. This allows him to move at a much faster rate than someone his size and bulk would ever be thought capable of without straining his body to move faster.
+20% to Hit and Dodge while not using his MA for anything else (mechanical)
Allows him to ignore weather conditions by altering the immediate air around him, and faster travel (cosmetic)
Raynar leaps into the sky and comes down upon his enemy after a brief moment of hang time. The force of his jump and the weight behind his spear as he dives down into his enemy often leaves devastating results. While the move is called Dragon Slayer it is no more effective on a Dragon than anything else.
300% Physical Damage upon a direct hit, or Normal Damage against anything withing 10 feet of the impact (mechanical)
Massive craters can be made as he lands after a powerful jump (cosmetic)
Raynar was born and raised inside of the Black Empire. Vastly controlled by the Vegonian's and their supporters. His father and mother both served in the army as front line troops. Though Gorgon's are a hearty race the front lines are notorious for having a short life span. However they seemed to have fared better than most. They survived long enough to retire from the army. Even raised 4 children the youngest of which is Raynar.
Favored by his mother and teased and picked on by his siblings for it. She would often come to his aid even when he did not wish it as a child. This was in large part due to him being her youngest and by far smallest child. No matter how much she seemed to feed him he would not bulk up as most Gorgon's do. He stayed thinner and grew taller than his siblings as the years went by. By the time he reached adulthood few were picking on him anymore except in jest. He had grown to an unusual height of 15 feet, staying a bit more trim than his siblings yet you could see he was not a weakling as his muscles are well defined.
As he got old enough to wield a weapon he found most swords where to short unless custom made which was a hassle. Instead he found and trained with polearms more. This fit is lean frame and their length was more easily adjustable by just replacing the haft. His father a battle veteran and retired soldier trained him until he announced that he himself would also be joining the army. Mixed feelings were had with his parents. His father seeing his last son becoming a man, while his mother saw her last baby leaving the house the one she favored the most still.
At the age of 30 he was enlisted into the army, though his size made him stick out during training and often the but of many Vegonian jokes. He was learning the skills he would need. Honing what his father taught him, and knew that the lessons his father taught him about the military where coming true. He was different the nail that sticks out so he would get hammered. His skills if they shined to bright would likely increase this but after training was over. And these people's lives depended upon him doing his job it would end. They would see him as a warrior to show and give respect. Due well enough and maybe he could even rise in rank. His father never sought rank just to do his tour earn his freedom and have a family. He knew that Raynar sought power not just in his body and combat but in life. He would seek to lead men not just take orders.
He served his tour of duty in the military mostly on the front lines. A few times he might have been offered an Officer's position but the Vegonians where known to be rather stingy with enlisting other races as Officers. Nearly 50 years of service to his name, countless border skirmishes, Patrol, and Guard duty. Then one day he was called in for his yearly evaluation. The Sargent and a Lieutenant where going over his stats as he sat there listening. Every time they brought up a new subject the Sargent would look at the Lieutenant and say. He has been performing poorly Sir. A curious look from the Lieutenant as he had the documents of his previous few years as well. Finally when the last subject was brought up about his rank the Sargent suggested a demotion, and pay cut due to poor work performance.
This was the last straw, at that moment Raynar didn't even care if he would get executed for doing what he was about to do. Crossing the tent like a gust of wind he snatched the Sargent around the neck with his powerful arm and locked him into a deadly hold. He could hold it and choke the man out, he could squeeze a little harder and a jerk to snap his neck. The man was grasping at his arm trying to free himself as the Lieutenant watched as Raynar snapped the mans neck and dropped him where he stood. "About damn time. I wondered how long that Sargent mocking you, and demeaning you would make you say something. Instead you did something that is even better. You start Officer Training tomorrow."
Thirty more years in the military as an officer before Raynar was finished with the military life. Though he is retired from active military duty he is sometimes called upon for special assignments, or comes looking for odd work when he gets bored.
