Weyrdin Ejwyz

Weyrdin Ejwyz, Hunter

Weyrdin was the only child of a butcher and his wife in a small medieval town. His father would often go hunting with him to get wild game to sell. He made the best venison sausage in the county. As a teenager, Weyrdin took over the hunting completely, and spent much of the time in the woods. He used snares, poisoned arrows, and poisoned bait to catch animals. The poisons he uses cause unconsciousness and are made from native plants. They can be used effectively on humans. The poison wears off before the animal is killed, leaving no aftereffects or taste in the meat. 

Weyrdin occasionally still hunts for his father, but has mostly gone on his own now. He has been hired several times to capture exotic animals to put into the menageries of noblemen. On one such expedition to capture a griffin for a duke, the party came upon a cave where they spent the night.

Weyrdin ventured into the back of the cave and found some very strange equipment. He found a strange weapon that projects a beam of intense light. He nearly killed himself trying to figure out what it was. He has shot the laser three times. He doesn't know how many more times it will fire, so he is cautious about using it, beside the fact that people stare at him when he does.
