Grimalkin is a Drake that lives in Pallass, and the famed master of his own personal magic school, Physical Magic.

Appearance Edit

He is a huge, muscle-bound Drake[1] with green scales[2] that wears tight-fitting clothing.[1]

Personality Edit

Grimalkin is like a "drill-Sargent on steroids" who also happens to have an obsession with the physical body. He is extremely demanding of his students and typically lacks social grace, but also serves to push them to their limits. He does occasionally tone down his brash nature to encourage his students.

Background Edit

Grimalkin is considered the most powerful Mage in Pallass, as such, other Walled Cities note that the loss of Grimalkin would be a real loss for Pallass. Grimalkin's power comes from level and mage skill as much as practical expertise, he has fought in 6 wars and typically looks down on Mages without combat experience. He notes Wistram Graduates as typically lacking this practical expertise, although Grimalkin does note Wistram is still a superior school of Magic to the institution at Fissival where he learned.

Grimalkin holds an unknown formal rank in the military of Pallass and he confers with Chaldion and the [Generals] of Pallass regularly. It is implied that he has struck some form of deal with the government of Pallass to stay with the city in return for other benefits.

Grimalkin owns at least one mansion within the walls of Pallass which doubles as a location to train his students. He also regularly consults on the training of Pallass's elite military units. Grimalkin's graduated students qualify for a minimum rank of [Captain] in Pallass's military. He can also certify adventuring teams as Gold Rank, and recommends one student as a Silver Rank Adventurer and one student as a Gold Rank Adventurer every year.

Quotes Edit

Volume 6 Edit

  • (To his apprentices) “You call yourself proper apprentices? I’ve had bowel movements faster than you! Pump those legs! Do you want to be [Mages] or not!?”
  • (To Erin) “So. You’re the Human who led that Goblin army against the Goblin Lord, are you? Charged into battle with nothing but a flag and dared, dared the Goblin Lord to a fight?”
  • (To his apprentices) “Gonads, then! The point is if an [Innkeeper] can fight with only her brawn and wits against a Goblin Lord and his army, no true [Mage] should be anything less!”
  • (To Erin) “I got a lot of stares on Baleros. And I have a number of bids for my body when I die. It’s flattering, I suppose.”
  • (To Moore) “You could be the finest [Mage] I’ve ever taught. What do you say? Join me, Magus Moore, and by the time we’re through, you could punch a hole in a Wyvern and rip out its heart!”
  • (To Pisces) “If that’s supposed to impress me, it’s failing. I’ve seen [Necromancers] and you’re far from Az’kerash, Pisces. That may work for Silver-rank threats, but any decent [Mage] will just say ‘[Dispel Magic]’.”
  • (To Yvlon & Ksmvr) “Passed. I don’t need to do much to either of you. Ten more levels and or the right gear and you’d both give me trouble.”
  • (To Pisces) “Were you born with that tone of voice, or do you always sound like a sulking child?”
  • (To Ksmvr) “In your case, I’d stay afraid, Antinium.”
  • (To Drassi) “Miss Drassi, was it? Whatever the situation is, I will react when called upon by Pallass. Not by an [Innkeeper].”
  • (To everyone) “We have witnessed an extraordinary event! A feat that few in this world can boast of! The death that comes from Rhir has been slain by a team of adventurers! The Horns of Hammerad!”

Volume 7 Edit

  • (To Terreskil) “You only think you can’t! And your brain is wrong! Give me another squat! Lift with your legs!
  • (To Ferkr) “You will prove to the tribes that Gnolls can cast magic! You have what it takes, Ferkr! Don’t you dare doubt yourself after all you’ve done! You have what it takes! Willpower! Strength of character!
  • (To himself) “Strange. What am I missing? How could she possibly know all this? Beyond strange. Either her parents were [Martial Artists], or…what?”
  • (To Chaldion and Saliss) “Hmf. I’d say it’s partly unconscious. But she obfuscates intentionally. Nevertheless, I’ve experienced this before. Not in this fashion, but a quiet, normal evening in this inn is a rare phenomenon.”
  • (To himself) “Auras. Damn formality Skills. Should I go after Miss Solstice? But there is such a thing as politeness—which is of course, how the Skills work. If I was a savage-minded person with no manners, I’d be practically immune…”
