Quote: "Are your damsel in distress?"


Rafael is a handsome man. Men want to be him. Women want to be with him. Rafael talks at length about his past. Many of his adventurous tales are true. Some strain creduility. No one is entierly sure which is which, but that mystery only deepens the legend of Rafael.

Rafael was orphaned as a child when a Beastie Horde attacked his village. This incident is one of the earliest encounters with the Dark One's Minions. Safely shrouded in the mysterious Gloom, the Beasties grew in numbers. More villages fell. The land was overtaken.

Always up for adventure, Rafael became an accomplished woodsman. He is a master with the axe. His life is devoted to saving others from the Dark One, or as Rafael calls him, Senor Shadow. Although he approaches his mission with a solemn reverence, Rafael still manages to look mighty fine while he saves the ladies.

Unfortunately, Rafael's current whereabouts are unknown... He was last seen searching for the great wizard Alastair who has become lost in the Gloom. Alastair saved Rafael during that fateful Beastie Attack so many years ago. Rafael feels honor-bound to return the favor. Besides, it surely will be a grand adventure!
