Character Reveal: Gal
Youngest Son of House Gullion
Whereas the youngest child of the family often receives the most attention and care, in drow households the treatment is much different; Gal learned from an extremely young age the importance of independence and sound judgement. While his elder siblings might enjoy more prestige, he is still a noble and belongs to the most powerful house in all of Holoth; he's had the finest trainers, tutors and sparring opponents in the Underworld.
Gal’s childhood taught him to be critically self-reliant and disciplined, conserving his resources to achieve his goals with maximum efficiency. One of these goals is to ensure his continued existence and rise to prominence in Holoth; to this end, he’s become an extremely well-read military historian and tactician, easily the equal of any drow found in the War College. Moreover, this has led him to be prepared for any possible contingencies. While Gal enjoys being able to deal with any situation that arises himself, he knows the value of a good ally and always keeps his lieutenant Mal Yrr Niss nearby, encouraging a rumor the two are paramours to hide his obsessive preparations.
He is—as any drow should be—extremely paranoid and has plans in place for even the most heretical event. Should his mother Maelora ever prove herself to be totally insane, he is positive that the piece of the Vidrefacte crystal hidden in his room will prove pivotal to her downfall.
