The Necessity of Choice
Lieutenant, Apprentice to Ponder
While drawing from the Wells only sparingly, Tarus is still a formidable spellcaster and tactician. His two encounters with our heroes have been marked with success in his objectives, though each survival hinged on his ability to retreat.
Born during bloody times to a fraternizing medic and trooper, he became an orphan at a young age. Kalustros, seeing the potential in the boy, took him in and raised him as an apprentice. As a test of his resolve, he was sent back to the province he was born and restored order. His task completed, he became a full wizard and demonstrated his unwavering loyalty to his Master. Frequently, he is seen attending to tasks when Ponder is unable to.
