Garoth has always had a deep connection to his deity, The Raven Queen. During birth, he was briefly dead, due to his own umbilical cord accidentally wrapping around his neck. In this near death experience, he came fact to face with the Raven Queen, who marked him as her own, deeming “now is not your time”. As a result, he is more serious than most other elves. He hates undead and any who manipulate the souls of the dead, as would be expected of a follower of The Raven Queen. Garoth consideres himself to have a higher purpose than most others, being an instrument of The Raven Queen’s will. “What can be a higher purpose than the will of a God?” is his reasoning. He especially dislikes any and all who attempt to alter or escape fate, though necromancy or other means. Garoth also finds himself feeling above laws and rules if they get in the way of The Raven Queen’s will as he percieves it.
In battle, Garoth pays little heed to his own safety. He is quick to action, closing distance rapidly in whatever way best suits the situation. He considers undead and necromancers “walking blasphemies” and takes pleasure in sending them to the true master of death. Garoth stands an impressive 6 feet tall, but is lithe and limber, weighting only 170 pounds. He favors black and silver, even wearing funeral robes and a silver death mask. He weilds an oversized scythe, symbolizing The Raven Queen’s dominion over death and the dead. When he can, Garoth tries to educate people on the true nature of death as he sees it: neither frightening or thrilling, simply the natural progression of the soul. “Everyone succumbs to death, and thereby to my Queen. It is fate. It is inevitable.”
Following his first encounter with Elena, the Bronze Dragon, Garoth had a majority of his capacity for fear drained from him by the Raven Queen, making him resistant to fear effects. (Powers with the FEAR keyword only have half effect.)
