-Gandling was once a Human magician who found his form weak and dull. He craved for new sensations, but felt he lacked what he thought was the perfect form to explore the lands around his city-state without being accosted by creatures or ruffians. Mastering transmogrification rituals he changed himself into an Owlbear.
-Was driven from his city due to his monstrous appearance. Gandling retreated to the forest and setup a new home in what was at the time a cave occupied by a pack of wolves. Gandling found to his satisfaction that he received all the gifts of his new form- unfortunately he was also cursed with a newfound Bloodlust.
-As an Ally: Gandling lives in the large forested area and can be hired as a guide. He dislikes getting money as he has little use for it, but baubles, magical items, or pieces of art might catch his fancy.
-As an Enemy: Gandling has allowed his Bloodlust to overtake him and he has begun to stalk, attack, and devour humans who have strayed into his realm. A party has been formed to hunt and stop the Mage- but it must take some brave or foolish individuals to hunt an Owlbear who casts spells.
