Behind the Scenes
You see Lord Maruko Ashimine the Half-Elf.
He appears to be in his 80's, has long, braided black hair, brown eyes, and tanned skin.
He is in good shape.
He is wearing an elaborate weapon's harness, a shining knight's shield, some rugged elven boots, some polished keron-weave battlearmor, a girded black leather kilt, a beautiful necklace of Lorminstra Tears, a Talisman of Summoning suspended from a fine gold chain, a silver-linked black silk cloak, a silver-threaded backpack, a beautifully hand-tooled leatherbound map case, a rippling sable-hued sash emblazoned with a silver phoenix, an engraved silver wedding band, and a six-inch black metal rod.
