Alignment: Choatic Good
Spinner is small and slight, making it easy for others to underestimate his strength. He has warm tanned skin and large brown eyes.
He usually has his hair tied back.
Maybe the suffering should have taken me. Back before it all began. I could have left trying to save my family, I saw it this time: how it could have ended. An evil our ancestors worked so hard to lock away would not have been released, one less person for everyone to worry about. Maybe it’s selfish, but it would have been so much easier. So much less unfair.
Spinner grew up in a small desert town so he feels most at home when the sun beats down on his back. His house was made up of three separate families, though if asked any member would reply they were all one in the same.
The Daye children were adopted by Spinner’s parents when his mother found the two trekking the desert, their parents killed in a raid. Not too long after the human children were invited into their home, Spinner and Bristle were born!
Polaris, grateful to his adoptive family dedicated himself to protecting the two new halfling twins.
Along with Robin and Evers, Polaris taught the young Spinner the ways of the hunt. How to follow the stars, track animals, find plants to feed the family.
And though they were not the most well off, they were happy.
Once the twins reached thirteen they were plagued by night terrors, claiming to see a man who played the flute at their doors. This lasted for months before all was quiet again. However, they were both still haunted by the melody that played in their dreams.
Summer, Autumn, Winter, all passed without any trouble. A calm spring night and a man entered the town- flute to his lips and he played. The sound traveled into all of the houses and children rose from their beds- mesmerized by the haunting sound. They wandered into the streets and gathered around the man- eyes glazed over.
He led them away.
When Spinner woke he was in a grassy clearing, the blue sky bright to his eyes. He’d never seen any place like this before! Around him were sleeping children Tally, Bristle, and Winter included.
He was lost, and terrified, and still that melody played- ringing in the back of his mind. Then a voice whispered: value what I have given you. And remember…
The children began to wake one by one and once they’d gathered themselves, Spinner and his siblings began their journey to find home again.
It took them a year and a half but they did find their town again, but there was no family to be found.
The children discovered through travelers that the town had been ravaged by a plague that killed nearly everyone.
Lost in despair the siblings traveled aimlessly for three years before parting ways.
Each in search of the last thing they had hold of- that mysterious man and his striking melody.
