The Color of Insanity
Ardent/Talaric Strategist - psionic leader
Ruin Alclair is a half-elf Ardent/Talaric strategist
Goal: to see the Talaric Codex reconstructed. Only he can read the volume that he was found with and it is incomplete. He also seeks information regarding his family, but it is hard to come by given his background. This makes him wary of anyone claiming to bear news about his birth parents.
He was found in a ruin near Akanul by a githzerai monk. The monk took him in and taught him to control his latent psionic abilities. This gift of focus allows Ruin to influence, enhance and capitalize on the emotions of others without needing to feel those emotions himself.
