Lament of the Riftdweller
Bominic "Bom" Brandiweiss
Halfling Bard (Level 1)
Bom is the estranged son of a local merchant Bardon Brandiweiss. Having come of age and, much to his father’s disappointment, showed precious little interest in taking over “the business” – no doubt a result of his “lack of business acumen” and “love for that silly, stringed abomination” – he has been branded the black sheep of the family. As a result, he makes a living playing strings and entertaining at the local inn, where he also resides. He has been known to spend some of his free-time playing cards and dicing, often losing. Fortunately, his fierce determination, more often than not, leads him to his lucky break.
His small stature and charming, unassuming nature make him the perfect candidate for what he amicably calls “treasure hunting”, and his ears are always open for new opportunities. His extracurricular activities have resulted in him being known to run with a few rough and tumble types, yielding fast friends and foul foes alike. That being said, he would never “stoop to criminal activity”, and he has never been wanted for, or even suspected of, breaking any laws… much to the chagrin of local thugs.
