Tristan Cole is a member of an underground rebel group called the Free Blades. He’s a thief and an assassin who loves to rob and kill members of the Serene. He’s 5’ 11” tall, and shaved bald, but has a mustache and short beard. He has hazel eyes and is 32 years old. He’s lean and wiry, and very nimble and graceful.
Originally an orphan from Carthos Landing, Tristan’s past is unknown, but it’s clear that something terrible must have happened to him at some point, something that involved the Serene, because he hates them and kills them with inhuman zeal.
Some say he used to sing songs and draw quite a crowd in Carthos Landing, but in all the years he’s spent in the north with the Free Blades in the First City, none have ever heard him sing a single note. He needs no musician’s muse to have his way with the ladies, however. His handsome face, deep eyes, and charming wit can open a pair of legs as fast as his picks open locks and his daggers open throats.
Some also say Tristan used to be a good man, an honorable man of courage and integrity. None know how he became an incorrigible thief and cutthroat, but no one dares to ask.
