The Whisperer in Darkness
Tarkus the Swift
Travelling goliath mercenary
A fairly badass tattooed goliath ripped straight from the front cover of the Player’s Handbook 2.
Tarkus wanders from place to place looking for work and appears to enjoy the fights he gets into. Though he claims to have a wife and family in the Gols most know him only to be some ageing mercenary who loves to eat. Despite the ‘swift’ title he does this very slowly indeed.
Like many of his kind Tarkus is very competitive, in particular displaying a chronic need to live up to his title with feats of reckless speed. Other hobbies include standing still, being quiet, sitting down and killing whatever he’s pointed at.
