Gustaf Stellern, nicknamed Falcon the Hunter, was the owner of a hunting lodge in Neverwinter Wood during the late 15th century DR. He catered to nobles from Neverwinter who were looking for a break from city life.[1]

Appearance

Falcon was 6.6 ft (2 m) tall. He had broad shoulders and cold blue eyes. His hair was black and he sported a neatly trimmed beard. Falcon wore a fur-lined cloak over his studded leather armor.[2]

Personality

Falcon showed no fear and appeared confident and casual even in difficult situations. He preferred living on the periphery of civilization to overcrowded city life. Falcon was a wine connoisseur and treated other people fairly and patiently. However, he had a deep hatred for orcs. He detested them so much that he hung the heads of killed orcs as trophies in his hunting lodge.[2]

Abilities

Through his many years in Neverwinter Wood, Falcon became a survival expert and a skilled hunter and fighter. As an archer, he excelled with his longbow but was also proficient with the longsword. These skills earned him his nickname Falcon the Hunter.[2]

Possessions

Falcon owned a pair of boots of elvenkind. His riding horse, a reliable gray stallion, was called Baatorius.[2]

He had his own flag symbol: a black banner with a silver falcon insignia.[2]

History

In his youth, Falcon fought in many wars, but retired to be a hunter and later proprietor of his lodge in Neverwinter Wood.[3]

Following the appearance of the white dragon Cryovain in the region, Falcon noticed an alliance of orcs from the south and a half-orc cult of Talos that gathered in the Woodland Manse not far from his hunting lodge. He hired some adventurers to make a preemptive strike against them. In retaliation, a band of twenty orcs attacked Falcon's hunting lodge. The anchorites of Talos also conjured Gorthok the Thunder Boar to aid the attack.[2]
