Dovan from Nisroch

A dark, tattooed figure with an obvious taste for pain and cruelty.


Until Akiros usurped the role,
Dovan was comfortably the second-in-command of the fort.
Secretly pleased with the Stag Lord’s alcoholism, Dovan has
been actively encouraging the man to drink, for as long as
the Stag Lord is in his cups, more power over the bandits
rests in Dovan’s hands. Dovan himself is a mystery to the
bandits—a dark, tattooed figure with an obvious taste for
pain and cruelty. All they know of him is that he claims
to hail from Nisroch. In fact, Dovan hails from Ustalav,
where he grew up amid the horrors of the Widow’s Boudoir
in Caliphas, a brothel that specialized in mixing sexual
fantasies with murder. When he discovered that he was on
the menu for a particularly violent evening, Dovan gathered
his things and quietly fled town, spending the next several
months enjoying all the decadences and freedoms the River
Kingdoms had to offer. After a close call with a press gang,
Dovan “recruited” Auchs by saving the huge man from a
brawl Dovan engineered. Dovan often grows tired of Auchs’s
simpleminded sounds, but is just as pleased with how well
the oaf takes to torture—and the security his friendship
brings can’t be denied. Of late, Dovan has been plotting
ways to kill Akiros, but he can see how much both the Stag
Lord and the other bandits admire him, and knows that he
needs to make his move subtly. Until the PCs’ arrival, his
best idea was to somehow get Auchs to attack and kill the
fallen paladin, but he has yet to come upon a reliable way to
goad Auchs into attacking Akiros.
