Every game company has its iconic characters. Here is, sans art, one of mine. Melkar K'Treva.
Melkar K'Treva is the character I am most requested to bring into games either as the player or as the DM. I've used him in 2e, Rolemaster Standard System , GURPS, 3x and of course Pathfinder in every level from 8 to 16. He is always some kind of magic user whatever the system. Presented here he is a l13 Sorcerer using Pathfinder.
Note here the stats are treated as (best 3 of 4d6) rolls and any magic items that he can create were bought at half price. As Melkar is an iconic he also has the standard two traits Other than those changes he is pretty standard Pathfinder.
Human male,mid to late 30's average height, slender and muscular like a dancer dark hair cut short with coal black eyes. Almost unremarkable features except for a certain intensity and crafters hands.
