Sikich (Al’s Character)

“Few fail to notice Sikich Hurkatz. Standing seven-and-a-half feet tall, he would make for an intimidating figure if he weren’t so incredibly thin, the bones of his face and body pressing outward against his tautly drawn skin – and what skin it is! Vaguely reptilian in texture, but even tougher, Sikich’s skin is a mottled pattern of browns, mustards, and olive greens. His large yellow eyes, glittering with an unnerving, piercing intelligence, rest beneath heavy brows, and his hair is a tangled mass of wavy black. His thin dark lips are much too wide for his face, appearing almost to divide his skull into upper and lower halves, revealing several rows of sharp jagged teeth. He speaks only with difficulty, sounding for all the world as if he were indeed some kind of fork-tongued reptile.”

“He wears a dark robe over his studded leather armor, suggesting some kind of monkish aspiration, but the well worn energy pike that he carries (and leans on when at rest) suggests that he is no stranger to the business of inflicting pain. Indeed, there is something slightly unnerving about his appearance, as if he were constantly on alert for any signs of weakness to exploit. Both fascinating and repellent, ethereal and raw, Sikich Hurkatz seems almost to compel attention.”
