At 101 years of age, Sheldonite is a bit weary, but very driven, even if he does not fully realize this yet. He is a former gladiator, held for decades against his will. His talent for summoning brought his captors great wealth, as crowds clamored for bloodshed, exotic creatures and spectacular fights. He eventually worked out a deal with his master, Hargus. After 31 years of slavery, Sheldonite was granted his freedom.
Upon being granted his freedom, the first thing he wanted to do was return to his homeland in the foothills of the howling mountains and see his family. He soon discovered that things just weren’t the same. Raiding goblins and trolls had forced his clan either deeper into the earth, or somewhere else entirely. The gnomes were no where to be found…not even in the 4e PHB!!! The local economy was also not what it used to be. The surface town of Silverstock had slowed down, and work was difficult to find.
Sheldonite often found himself without shelter. This is how he came to know Eon, Gingin and Maxx…none of these people had homes, and they banded together in mutual support.
Since the attacks of undeads and hellhounds started, Sheldonite has discovered a new purpose: ridding the land of this evil and oppression. But first, he needs to find a cure for his aching bones...
