Character Description
Poppo stands 3 and a half feet tall and is in slender shape for a halfling. His curly brown hair falls to shoulder length and constantly hangs in front of his sparkling green eyes causing him to absently blow upwards in a vain attempt to clear it.

Poppo dresses in comfortable trousers and linen shirt covered with a leather vest. A well-worn pair of large leather boots offset a bright patchwork cloak which can be reversed to provide a more stealthy black. Master Elwin always said that having a memorable appearance would help spread your reputation.

Poppo is a friendly peace-maker. Years of working in his parents' tavern has taught him that there is no disagreement that can't be settled with a nice hot meal or a stout drink. He dislikes conflict but will not shy away should one be unavoidable. He is loyal to a fault and doesn't like bullies.
Character History
Poppo Hardbottle was raised in his parent's inn and tavern in the town of Dagger Falls. By the time he was 15, he had mastered the family business but mostly enjoyed working as the cook's assistant. One night an older man arrived in the inn, dressed in the garb of a wizard. Poppo could tell the man had seen much and struck up a conversation with him, fascinated to hear the stories of the adventuring life. The wizard, named Elwin, agreed to take Poppo on as an apprentice provided he also served as his assistant as they travelled the roads in the surrounding area. Sometimes Elwin would arrive in a small town to provide magical entertainment for the community. Other times, he would do more traditional adventuring work with others. He never wanted to stay with a group for too long.

Poppo learned a lot from Elwin but during a trip to Baldur's Gate tragedy struck when the pair were attacked by a large group of undead. Elwin was slain by the horde but his sacrifice allowed Poppo to escape. Poppo saw a cloaked figure on a hill riding a jet black horse. As the figured turned and galloped away Poppo swore he saw fire erupt from the horse's hooves.

The loss of his master devastated Poppo but he decided to break out on his own. Travelling with caravans and playing taverns where he could and helping in the kitchen when he couldn't, Poppo scraped by finally running out of coin in ___________. He has decided that he needs to find a group to work with and perhaps find the figure watched as his master was killed.

Character Notes*
I am the voice of reason and compromise, even between the fiercest foes.

Respect: Money and status have nothing to do with whether I should treat you with respect. (Good)

My word is my bond not because of honor, but because I hate disappointing people.

Carnivorous monsters think Im the most delicious thing theyve ever smelled.
