Dark Sun: The Scorched World of Athas
Dwarf Rogue (Thief)
Birk is a wide-eyed dwarf who can be seen wandering Altaruk attempting to make a living by begging. He constantly mumbles nonsense. Most locals believe he’s a harmless loon but he is in fact a member of the Veiled Alliance who is tasked with uncovering any attempts to undermine the cities authority.
Birk typically wears tattered leather armor and carries a wooden staff carved to resemble an serpent. He carries little else except for a begging bowl.
Birk arrived in Altaruk shortly after Arisphistaneles took charge as the governor and found a role within the settlement’s Veiled Alliance as a spy.
Birk has had a few adventures in which he…
- uncovered a plot by the guard captain Tellemon to assassinate Arisphistaneles and arranged for another chapter member Arnye to assassinate Tellemon.
- traveled with Arnye in pursuit of the defiler Tethrades, killing him and recovering the Crystal of Ebon Flame.
- survived two attacks on Altaruk by Abalach-Re.
- escaped Galanaki, joing forces with Daqiq and his allies.
