WeaponRapier, ethereal shortbow

Haze was a halfling with a freshly scarred and milky white left eye. He carried a flute, a lyre, a rapier and an ethereal shortbow. He was often heard playing his flute in slightly inappropriate circumstances. The ethereal shortbow's string was broken from a fantastic shot against a giant boar, but later replaced with a plain bowstring.

Biography

When Haze brought up that he and Wilben had seen a lot of murkiness in seemingly clean people in their line of work, Nono questioned him about that, as she had the impression he was a bard. They both claimed to have worked and performed in more noble establishments around Waterdeep. Later, in the privacy of the tiny hut, the truth came out-- they had previously been spies, and had coincidentally died around the same time.

During the troupe's stay on the island, Haze brokered a deal with Camosh, and received an imp familiar and some information for the party. He claimed he traded 10 years of his life in the deal. He went missing for a few days, where he claimed he was captured by Nefilphasia and forced to do her bidding. During his time with Nefilphasia, he killed the imp, and thus invited Camosh's fury. For his own self-preservation, he has been attempting to acquire the orb to deliver it to Camosh. This has brought him into direct conflict with the rest of the troupe.

In his farewell letter to the troupe, he revealed that he was abandoned by his father and left destitute with only a flute to his name. He left a letter to Wilben with instructions to give his step-father a letter. Truthfully, without the troupe's knowing, the step-father's letter was secretly directing him to the island to find "everlasting life." Haze secretly worked for a dragon cult that sought to create dracoliches.

Wilben discovered Haze's contract in one of the deeper chambers of the Gralhund Estate, but let Haze take it without looking too deeply into it. Haze never showed any of the troupe the contract. In truth, the contract required Haze to give all knowledge of the orb and deliver the orb to Camosh, in return for information on dracolichy. The penalty for violating the terms was 10 years of servitude. Haze had often touted that the contract meant that Camosh couldn't harm them, but this was false.

Personality

Haze seemed like a sharp rock. He wore a plastered grin and acted a little daft at times. He occasionally dropped information about the island that the rest of the party was otherwise unaware of, usually regarding the Gralhund family. He appeared to trust Wilben. However, he has boldfaced lied to the troupe and has been caught doing so.
