Earthdawn: Down the River
Human, horroribly scarred.
Aldul is Ska’s master and a Master in the Therain Slaver Guild. He has a feud with an Adept from outside of Barsaive named Cullian and entered into a deal with a possibly insane Nethermancer for Adepts, lots of Adepts with their gear. He took such a dangerous job to raise the money for an army to hunt Cullian down and murder him.
