Relc Grasstongue, also known as the Gecko, is a Drake, Embria's father and the highest ranking Senior Guard in Liscor.

Appearance Edit

Relc is at least six and a half feet tall. His scales are light green, and he has huge arms, reminiscent of a bodybuilder's, with sharp claws on each hand. Relc's eyes are narrow, making them look similar to snakes', with very yellow eyes and black pupils.[1]

He also sports a forked tongue that can be observed when he smiles. Relc pronounces his words with elongated s's, and has a deeper voice then Klbkch. Clearing his throat sounds deeper and bassy then normal humans do. When rubbing his hands together, the noise his scales makes sounds like sandpaper.

Personality Edit

Blushes and becomes flustered when Erin asks him if he is a Dragon when they first meet.[1] He prefers personal gratification such as eating or finding nice rocks to laze about upon while he should be performing his duties.

When asked about his classes, he identified himself first and foremost as a [Spearmaster]. - Ch 1.07

Choleric when he is mistaken for, or called, a lizardman.

He is inordinately proud that his people are related to dragons and that some of them can breathe fire (even though he can't). He has no sexual attraction to humans, finding the lack of scales, and the presence of hair and body odour unappealing. The general epithet he applies to them is 'Fleshy', and he uses this in a derogatory sense. However, he still wouldn't mind looking, even though Klbkch labels him as a deviant for being so open minded.[1]

Background Edit

Relc served in the 1st Wing of the Liscorian army[2] He was a [Sergeant] and a [Spear Drake]. After he bested and killed a [Spearmaster] in battle, he gained the class of [Spearmaster]. He was then given an enchanted spear, which he had to leave behind when he left the army.[3] That spear and his spearfighting skill in combination with his sprinting speed made Relc ideal as a specialist in going after enemy commanders and mages in battle. He earned his nickname, "The Gecko (of Liscor)", that way.[2] He served with General Zel during the 2nd Antinium War.[4] [Iron Skin] was the last skill Relc got from his [Soldier] class.[5]

He eventually left the army and "retired" as a Guardsman, much to the present frustration of his daughter Embria.

Chronology Edit

Volume 1 Edit

When he and Klb were on patrol duty, they were told by their Captain to investigate the cause for the smoke that came from the Floodplains. After they located the source of it, they found Erin's inn.[1] When returning the other day, Relc offended Erin by trying to kill Pisces.[6] She trusted him again while visiting the city for the first time and let him help her with carrying the groceries.[5] The next day he tried to sort out the "goblin problem" they had noticed around her inn and proudly presented her three dead goblins.[7] This set Erin against him and lead to her policy of "no killing goblins".[8] When Klbkch was killed by goblins, Relc cancelled his friendship with Erin.[9]

Relc was then seen on patrols through the city, cracking down on adventurers by himself[10] and racing Ryoka[11]. It took Relc some days before he visited the Wandering Inn again, but he did so confidently with several other guards, to confront Gazi and Pisces.[12] Even so, Relc remained unfriendly with Erin even when he was willing to speak with her again.[13] However, he was trying to protect Erin from Ksmvr's machinations, but that turned out unnecessary.[14] Relc was holding heroically against the Undead during Skinner's Attack on Liscor.[15]

Volume 2 Edit

Klbkch's resurrection lifted most of Relc's bad mood towards Erin. Rejoined with his friend, he spent a great night at the Wandering Inn.[16] Near the Ruins of Liscor, he fought against Gazi, who won against him effortlessly.[17]

Relc helped with Erin's efforts to rebuild her inn when it was destroyed by Toren.[18] While doing so, he beats up Rags which drives her away from Liscor.[19] Relc is seen again when he helps fighting off a raiding party of the Goblin Lord.[20] At Rags' later returns to Erin's inn, Relc's behaviour towards her is very poor, which ultimately gets him banned from Erin's inn.[21][22]

Equipment Edit

Anti-Magic Spear Edit

An enchanted spear that was awarded to him for valor, during his time in the Liscorian Army. It looked completely normal beside having a grooved tip and the haft looked thick and made of a dark brown-grey wood. With it Relc can take on any Gold-rank adventurer, as it is enchanted to pierces magic barriers like soft cheese and is durable enough to at least hold his own weight without even bending an inch.[23]

As it is enchanted with anti-magic, it’s nearly as strong as a blade made of Naq-Alrama steel. This makes it a [Mage]-killer, or an officer-slayer.[24]

Trivia Edit

  • His surname was revealed in Ch 1.38.
  • It was revealed in Interlude - Embria that Goblins had killed his parents and wife.
  • According to Selys, he looks ugly, as his face and his jaw don't match, though it is not known if that is the general view of female drakes or only hers.[25]
  • He never got any dagger skills.[5]
  • Klbkch estimated once that if it came to a fight he would be able to hold Relc off for five minutes and inflict serious wounds before Klbkch would die. If he tried to assassinate him, though, he would have had an even chance of killing him.[2] That estimation was based on Klbkch's levels before he was reborn.
  • In Ch 2.39 a dialogue between Erin and Selys may indicate that Relc has a daughter “Look, it’s not just that. He’s older than me, you know? I mean, I’m almost the same age as his d—”'.[22] In Ch 5.13 it was revealed that he does indeed has one.
  • Relc once beat over 40 people in a fight,[22] presumably on his own.
  • Aside from Hawk, Relc, also known as the Gecko, is the only other person in Liscor with a Courier's speed.[26]
  • Relc hates adventurers, as according to him, they pick fights when they’re drunk, they run away from tough monsters, and they’re rude to guardsmen.[27]
  • He killed his first Wyvern at the age of 28.[24]
  • He is frequently banned from inns, taverns and bars, either for offending the owner or other guests; or for being involved in brawls.

  • (To Erin) “I can’t go anywhere without it, Erin! I’m a [Guardsman]! A Senior Guardsman! And I get lonely without a spear. It’s my security spear! I need it to sleep!”
  • (To Zevara) “What? We don’t know what’s out there? Come on, it’s my day off! This better not be like the time with the Carn Wolves or I’m gonna get mad!”

  • (To Embria) “You know, I think it’s because people like her. They didn’t at first, but Erin grows on you. Like a mushroom.”
  • (To Embria) “Too late. And the army’s never here. And you came in the wrong way, kid. You strode in and expected to take command. That’s not how it works.”
  • (To Erin) “Hey, this looks like fun! I can hit things and not get in trouble for it! Sign me up!”

Volume 6 Edit

  • (To Yvlon) “Uh, we’ve met. But I forget. Who are you again?”
  • (To Tekshia) “So maybe I did. I didn’t think she’d keep using that in the army. I taught her how to use a spear and nothing else. So what? That’s a terrible gift for a kid to get.”
  • (To Embria) “They say that. But they made me Senior Guardsman. And Erin let me back into her inn. Klb’s my buddy. They say tons of stuff, but they’re my guys.”
  • (To Erin) “I really like this guy. Hey, I heard you were doing something weird. Looks like it. Who’s the War Walker?
  • (To former Councilmembers) “Hi! I’m Relc. No one but the current Council goes through, got it? I’m allowed to hit you if you disagree. Please disagree.”
  • (To someone) “Shut it whoever said that! I’m a Senior Guardsman and the first guest of this inn! I deserve first slice! Plus, that one’s the biggest.”
  • (To Beza) “That’s the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard. I’m holding back.”
  • (To Klbkch) “Idiots. You know they’re into you if their tail touches yours. Right, my guy? Right, Klb?”
  • (To everyone) “Oh snap. Old Tekshia’s lost her—don’t throw it!

Volume 7 Edit

  • (To Klbkch) “Don’t be a lizard, Klb. If you’re not my buddy, who is? We’re partners, and a team! You can’t spell team without me. And…without I. Wait, how does it go again?”
  • (To Erin) “Do I have to answer that? And do you want me to answer, Erin?”
  • (To Embria) “Listen, kid. When the moment strikes, you have to take it! Didn’t I teach you that? And I told you those lines worked! Like a charm!”
  • (To Skywalker’s Company) “A toast! To the damned 4th Company of the army! New and old! Raise your mugs, you ugly bastards!
  • (Thoughts) That was five wrong’s. Might be a problem here.
  • (To Anand) “I’d be proud to have a kid like you as a son. You’re a good kid, Anand. Klbkch just doesn’t know it.”
  • (To Klbkch) “As I recall, you gave me a smack when I was being an idiot. I never thanked you for it. Thanks. Time for me to repay the favor.”
  • (To Klbkch) “You’re such a smart guy. How are you so stupid? I’m supposed to be the stupid one. Well—not stupid, but—”
