The Man Behind the Sword...and Quill
Dazyk has a love of knowledge and peace, but does not hesitate to draw his sword when his friends and loved-ones are in danger. Honour and truth are of the highest importance, in his eyes.
Through his love for exploration and adventure, Dazyk has learned to respect the immense power of the world and all its creatures. This has also translated into a passion for cartography and penning reference books, in which he records his travels and his encounters with strange and wonderful beings.
Of course, having such a proclivity for information gathering has led Dazyk to meet, and even tutor, other, like-minded, knowledge seekers and explorers; however, he often finds himself the subject of disdain and contemptuousness from the older, more conservative sages and scholars.
After all, it is difficult to be taken seriously--intellectually--when your dented and blood-stained armour squeaks and scrapes every time you squeeze yourself into your writing chair, or when your hands appear to be better suited to grasping a massive greatsword than to handling a delicate quill.
Of course, he also often wears his welcome at such 'bastions of knowledge' thin when he (accurately) corrects the sentence structure and grammar in the latest 'masterpiece' written by the Headmaster. He can’t help it if the Headmaster has syntax and verb-tense issues!
Truthfully, Dazyk would much rather be DOING the interesting and wonderful exploring and adventuring that he writes about anyway, rather than TALKING about it ad nauseam. He can, therefore, rarely be found spending any length of time in such ‘civilized’ places; he much prefers the singing wind on the open road.
