Vote for your favorite Blackwheel Company character from the list below.
Slerrn the Blade
Gnoll barbarian 6
Str 20 Dex 12 Con 16 Int 10 Wis 8 Cha
The rumor persists, despite all of the Blackwheel Company's best research, that it is completely unknown as to who is in charge: Slerrn or The Blade. In fact, some believe that Slerrn may actually be the name of The Blade. The massive greatsword commands so much respect and attention that it is wholly unclear who, exactly, is in charge. No matter the truth behind this matter, one thing remains certain: the two are a deadly pair, with swordsmanship unequaled in the Company.
"Kill, kill, kill. Blood make grass grow!"
Jaebrin marshal 6
Str 10 Dex 13 Con 14 Int 10 Wis 8 Cha 18
One of the more distinguished combat leaders in the Company, Elerinn rarely fails to inspire his hires in even the most dire of situations. His natural aptitude for diplomacy and gift for inspiration have led many a platoon to victory where only failure seemed certain. What he lacks in battle prowess, he more than makes up for in his ability to boost the combat performance of his platoon and his knack for gathering brilliant intelligence about the battlefield.
"Ask not what the Company can do for you..."
Warforged scout scout 7
Str 12 Dex 20 Con 12 Int 10 Wis 6 Cha 6
What he lacks in melee firepower, Scout more than makes up for in versatile and devastating ranged skirmish attacks and his ability to launch pinpoint strikes with his impressive collection of splash weapons. Scout proves to be a most elusive target for the enemy, and he can go from being a small annoyance to a huge problem with the simple snap of a bowstring.
"Finding a weak spot is easy, the difficult part is keeping things challenging after that..."
Lizardfolk ranger 6
Str 18 Dex 14 Con 14 Int 8 Wis 13 Cha 8
Having become integrated into the Blackwheel Company as part of their clandestine training facility in Q'barra, the lizardfolk tribes have become some of the most fiercely loyal hires in the organization. Thr'shk has distinguished himself from his peers with his familiarity for deep jungle terrain and his knack for setting up deadly ambushes. Thr'shk's talent for hunting and tracking humans has only increased his reputation for efficiency, particularly around Stormreach. Along with his dire wolverine animal companion, Saber, Thr'shk is a formidable addition to any platoon.
"Sssssso predictable, you humanssssss..."
Bugbear rogue 5/fighter 1
Str 18 Dex 16 Con 14 Int 16 Wis 8 Cha 6
After the Last War, the troops of Droaam were among the most sought after security forces in Khorvaire. They integrated seamlessly with the Blackwheel Company and have become the backbone of their special operations forces. Raeln is among the finest example of Droaamish training at work. Silent, cunning, and wickedly lethal, he combines the intelligent skill of a nimble-fingered and able-minded rogue with the sheer brutality and intestinal fortitude of a frontline fighter. He can get you through a door with a fist or with lockpicks, disarm a trap, dodge a fireball, and cripple a man's will in a single blow.
"Black, then black. It'll be the last thing you see if the Company sends me after you."
Halfling healer 7
Str 8 Dex 10 Con 12 Int 10 Wis 16 Cha 16
One of the most skilled battlefield medics in the Company, Tramel's warm smile and healing touch is a welcome addition to any platoon. Having distinguished himself first for his House and then in countless Blackwheel excursions, Trammel has proven invaluable in keeping the Blackwheel's most trained combatants in perfect fighting shape. The combination of his natural abilities as a healer and his impressive Dragonmark make him highly sought after for any mission.
