Dark Sun: The Scorched World of Athas
Tiefling Psion (Telepath)
Jarvix, like most other Tieflings, has a pair of horns and reddish skin. His eyes are solid yellow and his teeth are pointed and sharp. He is usually wrapped in lightly colored robes and carries a simple wooden staff.
Jarvix was orphaned at a young age, but exhibited affinity towards the Way. His strong mental abilities caused him to manifest fits of rage and depression, making him anti-social and ultimately resulting in his enslavement. He was freed from slavery before the sorcerer-king Kalak fell and drifted for a time in the streets of Tyr until his telepathy helped him stumble into the mind of a passing old sage. The sage was a member of the Veiled Alliance, and with all his courage, Jarvix approached him. He demonstrated his talent and the old man recognized the potential service he could provide the Veiled Alliance. Since that time, he has used his telepathy to seek out new recruits for the Alliance and discovered Gwyn while doing so.
Jarvix has had many adventures in which he…
- got drunk on broy with his friend Gwyn after recruiting her to the Veiled Alliance and woke up the next morning with a headache and a new tattoo.
- helped establish the protection of the newly planted Tree of Life by the Veiled Alliance of Tyr.
- traveled to Kalidnay and subsequently shadow Kalidnay where she helped to defeat the Templar Thakok-An subsequently destroying the shadow Kalidnay.
- helped defeat Dregoth in the Shadow Tomb after destroying his Shadow Engine then escaping back to Shadow Kalidnay.
- failed to prevent the transformation of Abalach-Re into a dragon queen.
- allowed the combination of all five Orbs of Kalid-Ma restoring the sorcerer-king to life beneath the ruins of Giustenal.
- helped recovered the Standard of Arkhosia.
- helped restore the sorcerer-king Nibenay to power following the cataclysm that damaged that city.
- was slain by Nibenay.
