Adventurer Conqueror King or Die!
A Mage, disguised as a simple traveler
Curio presents himself as a woodsman or a guide, whichever is appropriate for the conditions. He does not mention magic, even casually, in most conversations. He is charming and folksy. His true purpose is the acquisition of magical items and he has spent his time studying them. Immediately after learning the ways of magic in the academy, he left to seek knowledge beyond the library. He is highly proficient at overland and underland travel. He is familiar with both potions and magically crafted items. His spells are designed to facilitate entry and exit with such things. In his many travels, he has learned the language to the wild folk and he uses it to avoid unnecessary conflict. He is joining this adventuring party to put a few more bodies between him and those that might wish to do him harm.
