Koli Inarra

Physical Description

A lithe timberwolf clad sparingly in sheer silken vestments trimmed with gold thread. The faint canine musk surrounding him is mingled with the understated scents of incense and parchment, and he is never seen far from an old tome or three. The bookish appeal is completed by the wire-rimmed glasses resting upon his snout, seeming to intensify the gaze of his already lurid golden eyes. Though he is often quiet and reserved, he moves with a sureness of step that perhaps belies his meek nature as a mere façade.


Born to the wealthy Inarra family of Auffester, Koli exhibited magical potential and a voracious appetite for knowledge as young as adolescence. Classically trained by the members of House Inarra, he grew to become one of the best magi of his house.
However, unmoved by House Inarra's self-interested desires, he departed shortly after coming of age, leaving only a simple farewell note on his chamber door.

Striking out on his own, he wandered for years under the guise of a simple scholar, living off his wits, before finally gravitating toward Elysian City to help ease the suffering brought on by the war and occupation. To this end, he joined the Runebridge Guild, working under sanction to produce affordable remedies and poultices for the sick and wounded. Some even say that during the latter half of the occupation, a tall lupine figure in obfuscating robes was sometimes seen with sorties of Runebridge Fighters, churning the very earth below to rip at the foundations of garrisons and supply dumps vital to the occupying forces. Though suspicion weighed on him heavily in the twilight days of the occupation, the Treaty of Cherry and a lack of hard evidence of his participation absolved him from the charge of treason, if only by a hair's breadth.

After the war, Koli was engaged as a representative of the Runebridge Guild to other townships in Elysia, and was frequently involved in relief efforts for the many war poor and indigent. These actions, along with his involvement in the resistance, gained him the attention of his fellows in the Runebridge Guild, and in Winter 1585 he became the Archmage of the Elysian City Lodge of the Runebridge Guild by consensus. Soon came sweeping reorganization of the guild, some saying the remarkably young "whiz kid" forged a postwar future for the Guild.

Despite his high office, Koli continues his errands of mercy. Though usually sanctioned and officially funded, these ventures are often elective and paid for out of his own pockets — after all, he believes that one's worth is best measured by his gifts, not his possessions.

Theme Song:

Genesis - Land of Confusion
There's too many men
Too many people
Making too many problems
And not much love to go around
Can't you see, this is a land of confusion?
