Tiimons of the Dragon’s Maw was born over one hundred years ago on the island of Koalto Eomon in the region known as Minoa-Toah, a land formerly of one mass until it endured a massive arcane energy implosion. Tiimons lived on this central most island for the first fifty years of his life, living within his tribe as a powerful shaman. He was respected for his ability to command the arcane elements and his knowledge of how the Divine interacted with humanity.
In his eighty-first year, he left home and met with the M’Kecht giant known as Agguire, the famous ludae bard nick-named Cricket, a gorumar rage-eater named Badren and the ronin dreven known only as Kpen. The group quickly became a close-knit family unit. Over the course of the next ten years, they party would travel the lowlands of Mhazgardshaedar and fight the incursions of Shi’Ghat the Grey. When the ronin Kpen returned to Shonnestherra, he was reclaimed by the empire and named Lord Shogun. Though the party split ways, Tiimons had grown fond of the rough and tumble dreven and so he chose to remain within the empire and serve as adviser in the matters of mysticism, theology, and cosmology.
Tiimons has seen visions of a strange land he calls Kalos-Tein, a place he believes to be the ancestral home of the tiatoks. These visions have increased in potency and frequency over the past few years, and he has shared his opinions with everyone with a care to listen – these lands are unknown to the people across the whole of Shaedeam’s Back. He feels compelled to investigate these visions further, but he remains at the side of his long-time friend until such a time the Divine impress upon him once again to travel the world.
Like many spell casters, Tiimons does not espouse a reliance on material goods or tools, even to the exclusion of armour and many forms of weapons. He heavily relies on his magic and powers from faith.
