Evocation caster in an NPC group
Rath was the head of the Evocation school of magic in Kalimar. He was in the nearby woods, gathering components, when the attack began. By the time he made it back, he was too late. He found Tynnah and “Bill” shortly after, and they have been wandering the area looking for survivors since.
Rath, Tynnah, and “Bill” were encountered by Loup, Elas, and Crogette after they fought a group of goblins.
After some initial awkwardness, the NPCs declined to join the PCs and parted on good terms
