Bio:

Reverend Millson

At first glance, this unassuming man just looks like another preacher, but an observant onlooker may notice some oddities.

Physically, the reverend is thin, fit, and older [equiv. to 40 by our standards]. He has the hard, wiry appearance of a common laborer. While he appears fit, he moves stiffly. One familiar with medicine might guess he had suffered a serious, permanent injury to his left torso in the past. And were he to remove his gloves, one would see that his left hand is heavily scarred. Since Millson is right-handed, this is rarely noticed. In these war-torn lands, such marks are all too common.

When he speaks, the reverend comes across as a simple, warm, unassuming man of good intentions. He in fact doesn’t seem interested in converting anyone, nor passing any judgments. He is unarmed, except for the simple cane he carries with an inset quartz knob (quartz is common in his homeland, the Dormo Hills region).

The first unusual aspect is his vestments. His robes mark him as a practitioner of Thennian faith. Thennism is a minor religion (Pelorian splinter faith) practiced by the poor, uneducated farmers and miners of the Dormo Hills region. Dormo-folk, as they are called, are typecast as fundamentalist, insular, close-minded, and intolerant [think the snake-handling Baptists of the Appalachian mountains]. Morever, the Dormo region is not viewed as “pulling its weight” in the war, since relatively few citizens volunteer to serve. In truth, the Dormo Hills are constantly attacked by goblinoid tribes that live in the many caves of the region. Most Dormo-folk join local militia to protect their own farms, but this detail is lost upon the outside world. Due to this stigma, an educated, roving Thennian man of the cloth is unusual.

Millson’s accent obviously marks him as Dormo-folk (i.e., a “hick”), but he is a very smart man. He is both learned and wise, and also a keen judge of character. His knowledge of the world seems encyclopedic; he has obviously been wandering the world for a long time.

The reverend provides value to the military in two roles: pathfinder and liaison.

As a pathfinder, wherever you want to go, he knows how to get there safely. He’s comfortable in any terrain, from swamps to caves to forest. He effortlessly avoids sinkholes, pitfalls and similar hazards. He’s intimately familiar with flora and fauna of all types. As a reverend, he has also developed solid people skills and can act as a liaison or messenger. He possesses the disarming, unflappable tact that clergy are famous for. But his greater talent is sensing the motives of others. He has a razor-sharp ability to judge character and notice misdirection.
