Character introduction #1 – Styx
Today, we’re going to talk about the central figure of our adventure… Yes you may have guessed, it’s Styx. :)
First graphic research on Styx after OoaM…
250 years old, our hero Styx is the first known goblin. Physically, he is what you expect of this people: green and small, 1m28 (4’ 2”).
He is very agile, solitary and devious. Yet, he has not always been so bitter…
Before being changed into a small creature, Styx was an orc shaman, respected by all, a powerful mage, erudite and passionate about life’s forces. This passion will push him to study Amber, a magic and highly addictive substance, which will unfortunately seal his fate.
Both a blessing and curse, Amber possesses significant powers that Styx will put to full use during his adventures. Alas, these powers come at a significant cost…
In addition to his change of appearance, Styx’s addiction to Amber brings with it unending mental torment, causing him to sink slowly into madness.
Despite his metamorphosis, he retains some orc characteristics, such as pride, his taciturn nature as well as the body language and attitudes of this people.

To put an end to his suffering, our goblin tries to steal the heart of the World Tree, the inexhaustible source of the accursed substance which caused his mutation. His risky plan is to enter that place of damnation, the Atrium of Akenash.
The magnitude of the task will turn out to be more difficult than he had imagined and he will have to brave much hardship in order to finally free himself from torment.
