          Bonus Feats: Bonus feats at 5th, 10th, 15th, and 20th level.
Summoner's Charm (Su): Whenever you cast a conjuration (summoning) spell,
                       increase the duration by a number of rounds equal to
                       1/2 your wizard level (minimum 1). This increase is not

                       permanent in this way at one time. If you designate

                       spell immediately ends. From Arcane School (Conjuration).
           Shift (Su): At 1st level, you can teleport to a nearby space as a
                       swift action as if using dimension door. This movement
                       does not provoke an attack of opportunity. You must be
                       able to see the space that you are moving into. You
                       cannot take other creatures with you when you use this
                       ability (except for familiars). You can move 5 feet for
                       every two wizard levels you possess (minimum 5 feet).
                       You can use this ability a number of times per day
                       equal to 3 + your Intelligence modifier.

                              points while you are under the effects of any
                              spell, you automatically confirm stabilization

Appearance: Harkoz is a slim, lightly muscled half-orc youth. His head is shaved bald but his brows are black. The teen's grey skin is marked head to toe in bold orcish black-work tattoos, and he is pierced over in many places with silver piercings. When he speaks, its can be seen that his tongue has been bifurcated to look like a snakes. He dresses in black leathers and cloth- his costume usually consists of knee-high, steel-toed boots; A leather skirt or long kilt coming past the knees with a long, thin strip of cloth, like a sash, draped down the middle; A sort of leather cinch or girdle across his stomach; long, leather, open-fingered gloves; and a tall collar. Among all the black and silver, a flash of gold betrays the presence of a gold signet ring upon his right hand. His bolt quiver, sword and dagger, money pouch, spell component pouches, and spellbook are kept hooked or tied to his belt, while his backpack and crossbow remain slung over his shoulders.

Demeanor: The young caster's demeanor is dour, taciturn, and stern.


BackgroundEdit

Harkoz' story must necessarily begin with his parents, as it usually does with half-orcs. His father, Kartor, was a warrior-shaman of his clan in the caverns deep beneath the earth. He became disillusioned with his people's culture after a number of failed surface raids in which they were repeatedly repelled by more organized surface forces, leading him to conclude that there could be no greatness or power without discipline and order. He forsook his people, traveling to the surface on his own, and became a cleric of Helmang. He traveled to Irthos, where he was cooly received but never the less welcomed into the mercenary armies. After a number of years he began forming his own mercenary band, seeking out like-minded orcs and half-orcs to fill out its ranks. This he called the Grey Legion, for the colour of their skin.

The Grey Legion grew over the years with its reputation, but Kartor keenly felt the need for arcane magical support in his mercenary company, and there simply were no orcs, or even half orcs, with the magical aptitude and flexibility he needed to provide magical utilities to his company. Unhappily, he was forced to recruit a human wizard to his cause. Her name was Desdemona D'Vorza, a minor scion of a noble family in Venza, the Vorza.

The Vorza have a bad reputation for grasping at whatever power and wealth they can get, and rumors abound of deals made with dark, supernatural forces whose influence still flows through the blood of the D'Vorza family to this day. Perhaps such speculation is right, for when Desdemona D'Vorza came into her womanhood, she began to show strange and sorcerous powers. The family privately rejoiced, and immediately began planning on how to leverage her power to their benefit, and perhaps multiply it through advantageous marriage. Desdemona had other ideas.

Headstrong, ambitious, independent, Desdemona D'Vorza was no-one's tool. She rejected her sorcerous powers, instead turning to the scholastic study of magic to prove through wizardry that she was great and powerful not because she inherited greatness, but achieved it through her own merits and character. She left her family and traveled to Irthos, where the House of Vorza held no sway. Here she met Kartor.

The two initially did not get along. With their strong personalities and sense of independence, they were at first constantly butting heads with one another. Even so, they respected each-other's power, discipline, and self-made status. Respect became admiration; admiration, friendship; and finally, friendship blossomed into fiery romance. They married, with Kartor taking Desdemona's name, and a year later, Harkoz, their first and only son was born.

Both parents were intent to see their son to greatness. Desdemona nurtured his nascent spark of genius from the moment he was able to read, teaching him the alphabet from her spellbooks, practicing writing and arithmetic using arcane formulae. She invested him with a sense of business acumen, a knack for profit, and a degree of street-smarts. Kartor drilled him with military discipline, teaching him focus, efficiency, and self sufficiency (and how to handle a whip).

When Harkoz turned fourteen and became an adult, his parents gave him two gifts. His mother's gift was more conventional, a gold signet ring bearing the arms of house D'Vorza. From his father, he received a more painful bestowal; sacred orcish tattoos from head to foot. His birthday represented a turning point in the family's life. Kartor became increasingly possessed of the idea of forging a new kingdom out of the barbaric and unsettled wilderness. For the next two years he would slowly build up the supplies and personnel needed for such an expedition, including more wizards, engineers, alchemists, doctors and other technicians, as well as more orcish and half-orc soldiers in general to expand the ranks of the Grey Legion.

Two years later, Kartor allowed the Legion's contract with Irthos to expire and took his army into the wilderness to carve out a new nation of orderly orcs, swearing to call his family to rule by his side once he had succeeded. Harkoz set out alone into the world, hunting after new magical knowledge and the wealth to fund his research. Desdemona chose to remain behind to hold down the family home in Irthos, offering her services to the small nation to keep herself in coin, while running a merchant business on the side.

(Notes for DMs: Kartor is a LE Orc Cleric of Helmang, Desdemona is a LN Human Gold Dragon Bloodline Sorcerer/Wizard. I leave the rest of their levels and build to your discretion.)
