Character Name: Zidus Bloodfuse
Profession: Engineer, demolitions expert
Apparent age: Late twenties
Hair/mane/leaves: singed, short
Skin/fur/bark: coal black fur with a white muzzle
Appearance details: two missing claws on the left due to an…. explosive mishap, one missing claw on the right due to a drunken escapade with warband brother Baethul Bloodfist
Personality: Zidus is generally very laid back and relaxed for a Charr, possessing a sharp, if somewhat dark, sense of humour…. Right up until he loses his temper which can be on a surprisingly short fuse considering his general demeanor. Truthfully, both his calm and his temper often overshadow and hide a deep rooted sense of failure and guilt (see recent history). These bouts of anger are uniformly followed by a period of resigned acceptance and then a return to a normal frame of mind.
Philosophy: “There is always a way”,”anything can be resolved with generous application of his explosives”

Sighing, Zidus looks up from reading the report.
“How did you come by this Maryid?“ He Grumbled, trying to hold onto his calm.
“One of the guys snagged it during an Op a month ago” replied the striking, human, woman leaning against the bar. ”Your name popped up when we were going through the documents, I thought you may be interested... You can keep that, it’s a copy.”
Chuckling quietly, Zidus folded and stashed the report “Is the gonna cause a problem with any one in the guild? I mean, working with me?”
“Doubt it.” Maryid replied taking a drink of her ale, ”Besides, Skeleton said he’s heard rumours about this Kodaz character for the last few months - apparently he’s operating as a saboteur for the Fire Legion.”
At the mention of his former warband brother, Zidus froze. He growled, “He’s alive?”
“It would seem so, you never mentioned this guy... “ Maryid paused, then swirled her drink while continuing, “You only ever spoke about… Who was it? Bathel ...Brothel?“. Zidus snorted, ”No, Baethul. Yeah. Him. What's the deal? They executed him for being too noble and stupid for his own good.” he said, his voice strained. ”I’ll see you around Maryid, you know how to find me”
Zidus stood dropping a few silver on the bar “Her drink is on me.” Maryid simply smiled and nodded a goodbye as Zidus spoke to the man behind the bar. After that, the ashen charr left the Nightfall tavern and disappeared into the nighttime bustle.
Maryid swirled her drink, a smile tugging at her mouth, “Perhaps not as dead as you think.”
