Personality[edit | edit source]

Chrysaor has a very rakish personality, constantly picking fights and treating every one he's in as a show with an audience to entertain.

History[edit | edit source]

Orphaned as a young boy, Chrysaor grew up near the fight pits of his Granite and dreamed of being the greatest gladiator. He was adopted and trained by Eryx, a retired fighter, who taught him to use his smaller stature to his advantage by being able to outmaneuver his opponents. Soon after being adopted, he developed a severe fever, which ended with him having a terrifying nightmare and waking up covered in his recognizable golden scales and scarred heterochromatic eye. As he grew older, he trained and fought in the fight pits, slowly rising in the ranks until one day he had a dream, similar to the nightmare he had many years ago, telling him to go out and seek his fortune. This dream caused him to go on a year-long journey where he obtained the golden sword which he's named after.

Chrysaor is a yuan-ti who was born to a medusa in a cave near the town on Granite in Pteris. When he was only a couple months old his mother was killed by an adventurer, named Eryx, who upon discovering the young child adopted him and raised him in the nearby adventurer town Granite. After adopting the child, Eryx retired from his job as an adventurer and monster hunter and settled down in the town of Granite, to support himself and the child he began taking up odd jobs and slaying monsters at the Jewelspar Summons Disposary. Around the age of 6, while Chrysaor was playing in the savannah, he found a gold dragon wyrmling which he quickly became friends with and spent the day playing with it. While playing with the wyrmling, it accidentally scratched Chrysaor's left eye, leaving a scar. Upon returning home after playing with the wyrmling, Chrysaor developed a fever and became deathly ill. After several weeks, Chrysaor had a vivid dream of his mother offering him a golden sword. Upon waking up, Chrysaor's fever had broken, his scales turned gold, his scarred eye's color turned from blue to yellow, and he decided he wanted to become the greatest gladiator and an adventurer. He started traveling with his father to the Jewelspar Summons Disposary and training to become a gladiator. Due to his small stature, he learned he had to be quicker than his opponents, so he picked up a tricksy fighting style and finesse weapons. On his 10th anniversary of his fever breaking, Eryx thought he was finally old enough to go out and find his birthplace and retrieve the weapon that his mother offered him in his dream. Chrysaor set out on a journey to the cave where he was born. Upon arriving at the cave, he found that a cockatrice had moved into the cave. He fought the monster narrowly dodging its petrifying bite, after a tough battle he slew the beast and entered the cave to claim his birthright. After returning from his journey, Eryx began taking him on small journeys to develop his adventuring skills and magical capabilities. 3 years after Chrysaor retrieved his namesake sword, Eryx passed away and Chrysaor began using the broken sword that Eryx wielded to honor his memory. After Eryx died, Chrysaor left Granite and began seeking out adenture to earn fame and fortune.

Tales[edit | edit source]

Growing up listening to the boasting tales gladiators would tell about themselves and those that became legends, Chrysaor developed the habit of making tales out of most everything he did.
