Vander is a firbolg, once an assassin of the Night Masks (guild), later a companion of Cadderly Bonaduce and his friends.

DescriptionEdit

Vander has red hair and beard, is about twelve feet tall and weighs over 800 pounds[1], being thick-muscled and bearing scars of many battles[2]. He has dark eyes under bushy brows[3]. Vander wears wide studded bracers, glittering with dozens of small jewels, on his wrists[4], a white bearskin cloak and has a giant-sized sword belted at his side[5].

BackgroundEdit

He was born and raised in a firbolg community at the Spine of the World Mountains[6].

Somehow the assassin Ghost got a hold on him and since then uses Vander's body through the powers of his Ghearufu to perform his gruesome craft. Once Vander fled from the assassin and got almost all the way back to the Spine of the World Mountains. But Ghost found him. Merely to humiliate Vander even more, Ghost forced a body switch and mercilessly slaughtered several of Vander's fellow firbolgs, including his brother. Ghost reversed the body switch leaving Vander holding his eldest son's left arm in Vander's own hands[7].

Cadderly Bonaduce finally frees Vander from his predicament.[8]

AbilitiesEdit

As a firbolg, Vander has the strength and height common to all giant-kin. But due to his heritage he has the innate ability to reduce his imposing hulk to that of a large man or one of barbarian lineage[9].

Fighting styleEdit

Vander prefers to fight with his huge sword but also knows how to use his bare hands to kill a man in mere seconds[10].

Relationship with other racesEdit

As firbolgs are friends of the land, Vander naturally befriended the dwarven brothers Ivan and Pikel Bouldershoulder, along with the elf Shayleigh and the humans Cadderly Bonaduce and Danica Maupoissant[11].
