Savage Tide Adventure Path
The Dashing Deviant
Avner is a despicable cur-a slanderer, a deflowerer of maidens, and an utter cad who cares only about himself. Yet on the surface he is charming, helpful, and brave. This is all an act.
When trouble appears, he disappears. When coins go missing , he is the culprit. When ladies are left. in a-lurch at the altar, he ’s off frolicking with their sisters.
Despite the slow recovery of her wealth, Lavinia Vanderboren couldn’t quite finance her expedition to Farshore on her own. She spoke with the other noble families of Sasserine, but only one felt the profits for aiding her ‘“outweighed the dangers- the semi-notorious Meravanchis. Of course, Avner’s father, Zebula. had an additional reason to send Avner on this trip. By giving Avner the responsibility for representing Meravanchi interests in Farshore, he effectively removes the threat of him embarrassing the family in Sasserine. Avner has no concept that his father wanted to get rid of him, and carries with him a vastly inflated sense of self-import as a result. Traveling with Avner are two meek servants (Banaby Chisk and Quenge Asper, both 1st-level human experts) who defer to his every need but are otherwise unobtrusive.
