Appearance: Cailte is a lightly built elf ranger, small at approximately 5’-6”. He has a medium brown complexion and dark hair and grey eyes behind dark goggles, though an abundance of feathers braided into his hair completely covers his head. His leather armor is light, and most of his costume consists of equipment straps and small storage pouches where he keeps his climbing equipment and other tools. His bow is short and highly recurved to keep it compact, and for alternate weapons he normally resorts to the picks and grapples of his climbing equipment. Biography: Cailte was born in one of the small elf communities in Sharn, and has lived there his entire life. He grew up an avid explorer, and was always particularly fascinated with the exteriors of the immense tower blocks of the city. He has grown into an accomplished climber, using the exteriors of buildings to live and travel unnoticed by the more usual residents of Sharn. As well as climbing, Cailte has spent most of his adult life working with animals. He is one of the rare people who possess a dragonmark outside the usual lineage, and therefore his mark of handling, even though he has occasionally worked at house Vadalis facilities, has remained discreetly concealed when appropriate. Currently, he does whatever animal-related work he can find, from selling sparrows in street markets to capturing renegade monsters throughout the city. Personality: Cailte is a cheerful personality, friendly to others, though somewhat erratic in his social behavior. A life in the background of the city led him to have more to do with his animal acquaintances than other people, and despite being reasonably friendly he can be uncommunicative at times. Instead of conversing normally he is just as likely to leave in the middle of a conversation and come back days or weeks later, as though nothing had happened. Nevertheless, his commitment to business engagements is absolute, making him a reliable co-worker. Goals: Cailte has throughout his life maintained a fairly stable life free of overarching ambitions. Especially after the war, he has stuck to whatever job interested him, allowing him to develop his skill with all sort of animals and broadening his experience. He is still young, but after almost sixty years of simple jobs he has begun to consider finding something more important for his life. Likes: Animals, particularly birds and flying or climbing beasts, Sharn, Dwarven ‘grease cutter’, and spectacle. Dislikes: Flat, empty spaces, being conspicuous, and homogeneity. Relationships: Cailte has remained mostly free of close long-term relationships due to his erratic work, but over time he has built up a number of acquaintances in the city which his interests bring him into contact with. As well as his casual associates, Cailte has become familiar with more than one gang or shady individual, as his work takes him to less inhabited areas of the city, and his climbing skills allow him to remain unobserved while watching curiously as others go about their more covert business.
