Nikelflip The Sly
Gnome Shadowdancer/Rogue. Whisker's long lost uncle.
Nikelflip was born the youngest of 3 in a small gnome city. He and his brothers grew up peacefully and eventually he became the only one of the brothers to no marry. One afternoon, however, bandits raided the town. They swept through without mercy, killing almost everyone and taking no prisoners. His brother Thimble was killed along with his wife Knicker. They left behind an orphaned child to be raised by Nikelflip. Not ready to be a guardian, however, he gave the child into the care of an old sorcerer and left the town to move on. He traveled the world getting by through small, good-hearted, petty theft and eventually joined a guild of thieves. They traveled the continents stealing to live and partying all the while. He became fascinated with the shadows that flickered in their campfires and became a shadowdancer after months of intense training. Now, at age 76m he is setting out in search of the child he left behind.
