Staff of Frost Spells

Fellherm's tribe has lived in Barovia longer than anyone living can remember, occupying the forests and swamps of the land. As civilisation cleared lands the druids and barbarians were driven away from civilisation. Fellherm's father and the rest of his tribe refused to leave their ancestral lands, vowing to stay and fight. Just a boy, Fellherm fled with the tribes ancient artefact and his new wife. As the rest of the tribe died the pair settled in the swamps.

They lived here for half a century, the forest and swamp providing what they needed to survive and raising a young family. Eventually Fellherm's wife died of old age, but due to his magic and connection to the orb his life was extended. His eldest son fell in with the druids of Yesterhill, corrupted by the influence of Strahd, but still Fellherm stayed in isolation. His son made him promise not to get involved in the affairs of Count von Strahd, whom he now served, and unwilling to be tainted by the evil of the Gulthias tree Fellherm agreed. Fellherm watched for years as Strahd corrupted the lands with his evil but kept his promise. Eventually in his research he discovered something horrible about Barovia and realised he could no longer stay hidden from the world. After his son died at the hands of the Bastard of Barovia Fellherm found his magical oath removed and set out to fight the forces corrupting the natural order in Barovia.

Personality 1: I often get lost in my own thoughts, ignoring those around me.
Personality 2: I'm oblivious to social expectation.
Ideal: Contemplation is the path towards magical power.
Flaw: I crave power above all else, and will do anything to obtain it.
Flaw: Fire terrifies me.
Flaw: I am apathetic in most situations.
