Odd Pale Ranger
Skald is a shifty-looking, hunch-shouldered character with pale skin, a nasal voice, and unsettling eyes. Yet despite appearances he has shown himself to be an honorable, dependable and courageous man. Skald keeps his reasons for joining the expedition to himself, although rumor is he is fleeing something, maybe the law or something more deadly.
His unusual appearance and morose attitude has meant he has been blamed for all sorts of ill fortune in previous voyages, but Amella has always come to his defense.
