Gus, the One and Only, Revealed
Deep inside the caverns of Mount Nokk, miners slave day in and day out for precious metals to power the Arc generators. The center of these caves became home for one man. According to the tales, one miner became consumed with machines and technology. He drew upon the raw energy of the Arc to fuel his most ingenious inventions. Far removed from civilization, Gus crafted wild automatons, dangerous traps and tools for any job.
One day, as the people of Arcfall traversed Mount Nokk for their annual celebrations, the Arc generators began to speed up and emit a strange light. In an instant, the ground split as Golems made of heated stone began to march unyielding towards the terrified crowds. As they raised their fists skyward to build momentum, beams of pure energy burst forth, stunning the giants in their place. As the light faded, Gus appeared, as the Golems lay trapped beneath electrified nets.
Whenever Arcfall was beset with rampaging beasts and criminals, Gus and his arsenal of gadgetry would emerge from his hideout to protect the land and its people. Gus quickly became a legend known all across the galaxy. He was capable of capturing the most cunning of bounties. As the years passed, however, Gus began to rely more and more on his tools. The inhabitants of Arcfall could no longer depend on Gus and sought hunters from all over the galaxy. Ashamed and betrayed by the town he once swore to protect, Gus continues to hunt alongside the new hunters in hopes of reclaiming his former glory.
“It’s the hunter that makes the tools. Not the other way around.” -- Gus
Special Ability: Scavenger – Gus’s resourcefulness allows him to turn any single die into a HEAL. Others laugh at his diminutive skill, but the humor runs dry when you’re up to 3 wounds and haven’t rolled a single HEAL.
