A strange refugee with odd abilities.
Appearance: With wild grey-brown hair and a permenently
dazed expression, Gork nonetheless gives an impression of
harmlessness. He speaks most languages surprisingly well, but
not with particular flair. He has no concern for his
appearance. His overall demeanor is amiable, but unaware.
Personality/Bio: Gork has little memory of his past.
He does not remember his birth name, childhood, or parents. He
is friendly to almost everyone, even those who try to bait
him. He frequently seems to be in a daze, even in times of
extreme excitement. His complete indifference to pain results
in strange behavior -- for example, when an acquaintance
pulled out a single hair, Gork calmly pulled a handful of his
own hair off his scalp. He is basically friendly, whenhe is
aware of the outer world at all. He can be induced to work for
food, and will do so with surprising diligence. However, his
attention is sure to wander before very long. Ocasionally he
has a flash of sudden brilliance, at which times his INT is
15. At such times he casually reveals surprisingly esoteric
knowledge about any obscure subject the GM desires. However,
these flashes never last more than a few minutes. They cannot
be deliberately caused, though it is possible that a certain
rare mushroom from a far-off province of the Lunar Empire
might restore his mind for longer periods.
Gork spent several years as an experimental subject in a
Lunar research facility. This produced the many strange powers
that he possesses. Despite appearances, Gork does not register
on Detect Chaos skills or spells. In fact, Chaos is the one
thing that is sure to rouse him, at which point he fights with
desperate strength or runs like a madman.
When an experiment in the lab went horribly awry, Gork was
one of the few who escaped. In the years since that time he
has wandered aimlessly, settling for a few seasons wherever he
happens to find someone kind enough to feed him in exchange
for simple chores. Certain Lunar scientists might pay
handsomely for him, if they knew he existed.
