Gaubric "Mindreader" Dinatobanothi
Champion cage fighter goliath
Alignment: Lawful Neutral
Gaubric grew up in the warlike mountain goliath tribe, Dinatobanothi. He learned to fight at a very young age and excelled despite his smaller size and slighter build. He always had an uncanny ability to predict his opponent’s attacks and exploit weaknesses that others couldn’t see. The clan leader gave him the nickname “mindreader” when he witnessed Gaubric dodge an unseeable attack while sparring with a peer.
When he was 17 years old he began having vivid dreams. Dreams of his tribe, dreams of the mountains, and sometimes dreams of distant lands filled with strange people and creatures he had never seen before. After a couple months of these, he began to realize they almost always came true, though not always exactly the way he expected.
At the age of 20 Gaubric awoke from a horrifying nightmare in which he stumbled upon his clan leader crushed to death, half buried in the snow. He rushed to his chief to warn him of the danger and urge him to take precautions; send out scouts, post guards, etc. The chief took the news as a threat from Gaubric and accused him of trying to usurp his position of power. He stripped Gaubric of his nickname and cast him out from the tribe.
Two weeks later, Gaubric heard word that his entire clan had been wiped out by a powerful demi lich. Since then, Gaubric has been wandering the continent fighting in taverns and inns in return for food and shelter and money. He has been largely successful and is rather well known in some towns as the champion fighter of certain fight clubs.
Bored of winning all the time, he is now branching out into the world of adventuring. He hopes to one day avenge his friends and family.
