The Mark of Tyranny
A Gentleman and a Mul Arena Gladiator
“Welcome! Welcome! Come in! Don’t mind the blood, just a robber who picked the wrong house. Wine?” Slice, inviting Cha-ka to dinner when he joined the arena.
Standing around 4 feet tall, this Mul has a carefully cultivated mop of hair, and clean shaven face. He always speaks in carefully measured tones, and the tattoo on his face does nothing to mask his sophiscated heart. Slice has gone to great lengths to gather musical crystals to listen too in his downtime.
Slice’s preferred weapon is two curved daggers on the end of chains, attached to the manacles that once bound him. They offer him incredible mobility and reach during combat.
One half of a partnered arena team, Slice and his brother, Bite, have been in the arena since they reached adulthood. When King Kalak was slain, Slice and Bite executed their old master before he fled, and took his home as their own, on the borders of the noble and merchant districts.
Slice and Bite were the top paired team of gladiators currently competing when the party joined the arena. After the party beat them, they didn’t hold it against them, and even gained a measure of respect for them.
Several times, people have approached Slice and Bite, particularly before their match with the party, and asked them to break arena law, and make sure that Lyssandra and Leta died in their match. They turned down the offer, and invited the party over for dinner to inform them.
Slice and Bite helped out during both the Night of Fire, and the defense of the arena district during the riots.
When the party went into The Ziggurat of Tyr, Slice and Bite helped stand guard outside. When The Preservers came to retake the Ziggurat, Slice and Bite were captured, and taken to Fort Ianto, to be indoctrinated and converted to Titarion’s cause.
The party freed Slice and Bite from the Fort, both of them bleeding and covered with dozens of runes carved into their skin. Taken to Moiraine for healing, Slice and Bite remained hidden at The Severed Arm as they recovered.
Once the party seized control of Tyr, Slice and Bite volunteered to be guards of The Council.
Slice guards Harzen’s lab along with Bite, in Titarion’s manor.
