Jeb Walderudis (J. W.) Stillwater
Paladin/Archeologist o' Exene
Born in Clawsaw to a daddy who di’n’t like the magics, Jeb was given that simple first name by him. His momma who’s one of them fancy wizard types gave him his long middle name Walderudis. Jeb’s daddy di’n’t like that and called him J. W. (Jay Dubya). His momma was able to hide her wizardyness from the locals for a while until J. W. was round 6 year’ old. Then she got caught doin’ that spellcastin’ and fled off to Eustace and ‘ventually to Dragonfall. He got ’nrolled in the temple o’ Exene to try and make him a wizardy-kind too, but he wa’n’t quite cut out for it. He did grow to be pret’ strong though and charism’tic too. Made himself a right good Paladeen, protectin’ those wizardy types ‘n their knowledgin’. Then that there revl’ution happ’n. J.W. din’t like that them wizardy were fight’n’ ‘gainst the drag’ns. He wan’t quite sure why, but it rubb’d him da wrong way. He left ‘da church o’ Exexe an’ start’d ‘venturing wi’ some Exene-y monk Ripkarn. That lasted for ‘while but, then Ripkarn thought J. W. should go help his friend Aptchi in his bar, since he was havin’ trouble with those ‘gainst the drag’ns.
