A formally retired adventurer.
A one-armed man with a few scars, he looks young but has old eyes. Forced to retire from a more active life, he now settles his bar bill by loaning his skills to those who pry into tombs, go looting dungeons, or looking for bandits. He particularly enjoys laying traps for bandits, who he blames for the lose of his arm (for good reason: a bandit chopped it off).
A former miner, glutton, with a Robin Hood hat, pet canary and a mule called Bob, Jym Hawke was on his way to becoming an adventure when an encounter with bandits saw his arm lopped off. He retired, but now that his arm has healed he has debts to pay, since he has driven up a huge bar bill at the quiet tavern in Appleby. He is a skilled specialist, a dab hand at picking locks, with a keen eye for architecture and construction, and excellent hearing. He prefers to be hired for his skills rather than his fighting prowess (which has suffered), but will often take what he can get. As a bonus, he has his own equipment and weapons, loot from his previous adventures.Jym Hawke (Specialist/Rogue/Thief, Level One; hit points 4; Charisma 12, Constitution 10, Dexterity 14, Intelligence 8, Strength 11, Wisdom 10; Alignment Neutral; Traits: vengeful, sharp-eyed, likes a drink).
