Background:

21 Sarenith 4715 AR

The nation of Cheliax is on the rise. Former outlying provinces to the north are returning to its banner. In the southeast of the realm of Varisia, the city-state of Korvosa has been strengthening its ties, and more Hellknights of the Order of the Nail have been sighted throughout the region. The goblins of the Hold of Belkzen have taken to raiding the regions eastern frontier more frequently as well, and with greater success than ever before. During less interesting times, the corrupt Lord Mayor of the rival city-state Magnimar could do as he wished, but with the new threats brewing nearby, the Council of Ushers has removed Haldmeer Grobaras from power and installed a replacement by the name of Devis Thraine. Thraine is a member of an ancient lineage of sorcerers among the historic nobility of Taldor, a major rival of Cheliax with whom Magnimar has made a defensive pact. In looking for ways to preserve the balance of power, Thraine has spent a great deal of time researching the history of the fallen empire of Thassilon which once ruled much of the northern world. He is keen on rediscovering the ancient power used by that civilization and developing it for the benefit of Magnimar.

An artifact known as the Emerald Crown, which belonged to one of the Thassilonian kings and was later plundered, has been traced to somewhere in the Bloodsworn Vale on the trade route between Cheliax and Korvosa. Fearing it could fall into the wrong hands, Lord Mayor Thraine has secretly dispatched a band of adventurers to retrieve the Crown...

Feats: Improved Natural Attack (claw)
Special: Link, share spells

Mountain lions are, on average, larger than leopards, but smaller than lions. Depending on the individual mountain lion, either set of stats could potentially apply. This one uses the "lion/tiger" stats rather than the "leopard/cheetah" stats, so it would be a large male.

Quote from: Backstory
Gerhardt Albin Richtfeld Schwarz was born to a rather wealthy family. As the second son of that family, he went into the priesthood, and attained a fairly high rank in the Church of Sarenrae. I'm afraid I can't find the exact ranks for that church, but he's somewhere below a bishop and above a pastor. In any case, he's recently become a bit worried about the potential of abuse by the adherents of the Church, and has disguised himself as a humble cleric, Gars, obstensibly out to explore the land and spread the holy word and healing of Sarenrae. His real motive, however, is to find out about the church and to make sure the priests of the church aren't abusing the population.

Magnimar, 21 Sarenith 4715 AR

The entire city had been transformed, it seemed, for the solstice festival. Market tents selling unusual items had sprung up overnight, games and celebrations were going on all day. Despite the recent publicized disappearance of Senior Priest Gerhardt from the proceedings for his trip to Absalom in the south, the traditional drama of the defeat of the chaos god Rovagug at the hands of fair Sarenrae was performed admirably.

However, dark times lay ahead for the group of adventurers hired by Lord Mayor Thraine in secret for the dangerous mission to Korvosa. This day was one of farewell, and a time to prepare for challenges ahead.
