Appearance

You see Khylon Oakspear the Guard Captain of Wehnimer's Landing.

He has a square-jawed face, a broken nose and thick burly arms.  He has a long kempt deep red beard set with tiny onyx axe-shaped clips.  He has a missing eye and some missing fingers.
He is in good shape.
He is wearing a battered orc hide helm ornamented with chipped troll tusks, some blackened steel prayerbeads, a pair of dark mithril bracers, a dented mithril tower shield, a crisp militia uniform, a large sack, an old tattered pouch, a oiled leather pack, a mithril-bound orc hide scabbard, a large sack, a mithril alloy mesh kilt, and a pair of scuffed black boots.

Background

Khylon Oakspear was originally brought to the town by Mayor Walkar Wellington, having been an old contact of Walkar's during his time in Jantalar. Khylon was the leader of a mercenary group and has on occasion provided Walkar with some extra support in protecting the town.

After Grishom Stone's minions slaughtered many of the town's council members, Walkar appointed Khylon as a trusted councilman to help oversee the town's militia and their training. In 5112, Khylon was kidnapped by the Brotherhood of Rooks and held for ransom in return for the release of Drangell from the town's prison. After suffering over a month of torture and interrogation, Khylon was rescued by Landing Heroes and took time off to recover from his injuries.

In 5114, the witch Raznel set a curse upon Khylon that left him almost completely paralyzed and diseased. He spent two years under the care of town healers. In early 5116 he began to show positive signs of recovering and even began walking short distances. When asked if he would like to return to his former position of Town Marshal, he said it was far too soon to tell, and his main focus was fighting off the cursed witch's magic.
