Character Background Information:
Edwin: Big fans of Edwin may discover that he’s out of character at times; slightly quieter, rather prone to attacks of depression and little nicer…enough to be involved in a loving relationship anyway. Although he’s still sarcastic, egotistic and everything else, and the Edwin fans I’ve spoken to haven’t had any problems with the way I’ve changed him.
Species: Human and Bhaalspawn
Profession: Fighter (Blademaster)/Thief
Alignment: Lawful Evil
Weapon Skills: Long sword +5, Dagger +1 and Long bow +4.
Other abilities: Able to cast Horror, Larloch's Minor Drain and Ghoul Touch twice a day.
Background Information: The evil, warrior Bhaalspawn who the story revolves around. Kane spent his early part of his life growing up in the slums of Athkatla, with parents who didn’t care about him, before being taken in by the assassin, Benny and trained as a Shadow Thief. He was also taken in by Gorion for a while and spent a few years at Candlekeep, before leaving and travelling the realms. Kane communicates willingly with his father from time to time and is well aware that he will one day be the one to take his father’s place as the next God of Murder. Although he does have a compassionate side, most of the time he keeps it well hidden, usually only helping the people who can afford to pay him well for his aid. He is very short-tempered, arrogant, reckless and he has no respect for anyone in authority, with the exception of Benny, his former teacher, who is the nearest thing to a real father he ever had. He’s a powerful warrior and very few who cross swords with him live to tell the tale, especially if they make the mistake of trying to take him for a fool.
Special Items: Kane’s Fury-Kane’s main long sword. It was forged for him soon after he joined the Shadow Thieves, along with Benny’s sword, Fading Light, using, amongst other things, a drop of his blood and a drop of the shapeshifter’s blood. This has caused him to develop a special bond with it, only he can use it and it grows in power as he does. It is a very heavily enchanted blade, able to hit all but the very toughest of magical enemies. Cloak of the Shadow Thieves-A special cloak used only by members of the Shadow Thieves. When worn, it allows the wearer to slip more easily into the shadows and move without being detected, as well as offering a small amount of protection against attacks. Kane’s Bloodstone Ring-A ring given to him as a gift from his mother when he was very young. Offers some magical resistance. Bag of Holding.
Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
Skills: Short Sword +2 and Short Bow +2.
Background Information: Raised from birth in the Shadow Thieves guild in Athkatla, Cory was trained to be an assassin from an early age, following in the footsteps of his mother and father, both who died when he was still a child. However, despite many years of training, Cory dislikes killing people in cold blood and much prefers turning his hand to pick pocketing, blackmailing and other fairly non-violent activities. He has few friends and is very difficult to get to know; although he is still young, years of serving under Mae’Var have taught him to keep himself to himself and his mouth shut. But he is fiercely loyal to the few people he does care about and will defend them to the death if necessary. Although fairly used to violence and a capable fighter, Cory is still new to adventuring and has seen little of the world outside Athkatla. He can be very enthusiastic about things at times, something that occasionally irritates those around him, is always keen to learn new things and is an expert at getting himself into trouble.

Background Information: Kane’s teacher, a former Shadow Thief and a powerful and skilled assassin, known across Faerun under the name of ‘Scarface’, a name he was given due to the long scar on the left side of his face. Although there are several rumours about him, he keeps himself to himself and only a handful of people really know anything certain about him or his past. He has travelled across much of Faerun and has been linked not only to the Shadow Thieves, but also the Harpers and other well-known assassins of the Realms, such as Artemis Entreri. Although he has a few things he won’t do, such as harm a child, he will generally turn his hand to any job and work for anyone who can pay good money for his services. A polite and soft-spoken man, except when angry, Benny takes little real pleasure in the act of killing, but has become an expert at switching his emotions off and doing whatever must be done in order to complete a job. Although he is wary of getting too close to people, or letting them get too close to him, he is completely devoted to Kane, viewing him as a son, and will go to any lengths to help or protect him. He is a very dangerous man to cross and anyone who crosses him or those he cares for will not live long enough to tell the tale.
Special Items: Fading Light-A long sword, brother to the one wielded by Kane. Like the warrior, Benny has a special bond with his blade and it grows in power as he does. It is a very heavily enchanted blade, able to hit all but the very toughest of magical enemies and has caused many deaths across Faerun. Cloak of the Shapeshifter-Can be worn only by Benny. Allows him to change form more easily, offers shield and magic protection and allows him to hide more easily in shadows. Randal’s Dagger-Randal’s signature dagger. A small dagger with a skull carved into the hilt and the ability to do poison damage to its target. Randal’s Ring-Forged by a powerful wizard and offers the wearer complete immunity to fire damage. Benny’s Wedding Ring-Given to the shapeshifter by his dead wife on their wedding day and has remained very precious to him.
