Pa’s “Pascal” Scaltula

After entering into a pact as one of Lolth’s senior wizard’s apprentices, Pa’s “Pascal” Scaltula slowly realized there was a rift between him and the other two apprentices. The rift grew over 20 years until the friends/apprentices’ disdain boiled over into a mighty confrontation. After results Pa’s does not speak of, he immediately left his native elven tribe (before the dust settled) and ventured solo into the underdark to pursue knowledge of magic how he saw fit. Five years into his solitude, he rescued an older bird (somehow found in the underdark) from a mighty spider (a further transgression against his people). For the next 15 years, he traveled and studied w/Archimedes, a nomadic life to keep him far from the other drow.

Pascal went through his “crucible” during the confrontation and subsequent flight into darkness, constantly turning an overly critical eye inward. Many nights’ sleep was lost trying to solve the riddle locked inside a bloodstained letter, sealed with magic, that would help bring peace to his soul. Wary of other magic users and their familiars, Pascal tends to keep a healthy dose of skepticism. Archimedes, the only “friend” Pascal has known since taking apprenticeship of magic, remains the one uplifting constant through his darkest times. He has self-taught himself magic and survival skills through the scav’ing, stealing, or locating information. Pascal has come to rely on himself and Archimedes for years and be very wary of any new travelers he encounters. Solitude, study, and pursuit of answers to personal questions is his preference…
