Gaerik's tall, muscular frame is typically shrouded in a Dire Wolf pelt cloak and his facial features are
generally hidden by a dark hood. His shyness is such that it was a full day from Port Capri before
some members of the party realized that he was a half breed of Orcish stock. However, after initial
shock most would consider him good company, if a bit reluctant to extend himself in friendship.
Surprisingly, his brutish and ugly features mask a quick wit and relatively high education as those who
engage him in conversation soon discover. A large claymore is slung across his back and for a short
time each evening he practices quietly alone away from the fire as the lack of light does not seem to
hinder him very much. He cheerfully helps out with any group chores that need to be done along the
way and generally tries to make himself useful.
