Companions: Regongar - the meanest magus on this side of the Inner Sea

Dear Pathfinders,  

It’s time for another companion update! Picking up where we left off, we’re now introducing Regongar, a half-orc magus whose fate is closely intertwined with Octavia's (we told you about her a bit earlier).  

Just like Octavia, Regongar had a rough start in life. A childhood and youth spent in the Technic League’s captivity has left a permanent mark, forever changing the half-orc. But while Octavia believes that his suffering has destroyed almost everything good in Regongar, he thinks otherwise. In the crucible of servitude the magus* steeled himself for future challenges, forged his iron will and deadly proficiencies which made the free Regongar a living nightmare for the Technic League and its agents.

  

Regongar is extremely selective in choosing his companions: he abhors weakness, indecisiveness, and hypocritical prudery. A person that wins Regongar’s respect should be wary of such an honor: this magus has no friends except for Octavia, and he has no pity for those who disappoint him. Striking a deal with such a cataclysmic entity is a hazardous enterprise, but those who are brave – or crazy – enough to do so will be rewarded with a companion who knows neither rules nor boundaries. When he wants something, this half-orc has no scruples about stepping over a couple of bodies (or a dozen) or traveling to the deepest pits of Abaddon and back. Any team that collaborates with Regongar receives an unrestrained force that intimidates everyone – from the common soldiers on the battlefield to the lords in high castles.  

Unlike Octavia, Regongar relishes melee combat: the magus makes a good use of magic protection and destructive spells as well as of his trusty blade. He has mastered many spells but his favorite are those that harness the power of electricity – an element that turns into a deadly force in his hands. Facing an angry Regongar is a truly terrifying experience, and he uses his ability to intimidate to his own advantage: sometimes his mere appearance on the battlefield is enough to make enemies flee. While out of combat, the half-orc can horrify his enemies with a sideways glance and a menacing phrase.

  

Regongar is brave, decisive and inexorable – great traits for those who are eager not only fight personally but lead others as well. Trusted with a governing position, he will become an astonishing warlord that keeps his own men in absolute fear and submission.  

 

* Initially Regongar was intended to be a sorcerer but since we reached the Magus stretch goal, we decided to shake things up and change his class for he fits it well.  

 

Hail to the kings!  

Owlcats.

      I see you've made Regongar and Octavia a yin and yang duo, inseparable and very powerful when together. I bet there are going to be interesting moments and situations where, because of their morals, Regongar and Octavia will clash. While I don't expect them to fight each other, it's going to be interesting to see how they grow as characters in Pathfinder: Kingmaker.
      Definitely like the looks and morals of Regongar!

      Great NPC!
      But i want my main PG to be a Magus... or an Arcane Trickster! Regongar and Octavia are stolen my dreams... :(

      Ha, he's almost exactly like a character I played once. A surly half-orc magus with a preference for electricity and an inexplicable friendship with a perky mage-girl. Good times.

      Will we still be able to play a melee sorcerer in armour?

      Great a fighter/mage style NPC (and magus is even better) I have never understood why Bioware avoided fighter mages (apart from Dakkon of course)

      I love the work owlcats are making with magus. I really hope the archetypes stretch goal will be reached!

      @Robert - The spell effects look really good, don't they? Loving the art direction so far.

      Still not as handsome as Xanos Messarmos. I blame the lack of facial hair for that. :p

      I love that in the gif, the lightning bolt also fries the horse (mule? whatever that animal is).
