Tyril Tallguy is a Firbolg Druid. Tyril grew up in the wilds around his home village as the apprentice to the spiritual leader. After an accident regarding his large stature, Tyril fled the village to become a sword for hire. His regret informs his transformations, and he prefers to shape-shift into small mammals and rodents.
Hitch is a Human Rogue who started off life on the wrong foot and the wrong side of the wagon tracks. Besides the Sword Coast, the only other place he’s ever called home is Durpar in Southeast Faerûn, which has been conquered by goblinoids allied with Durpar’s ruling merchant house. Now, he tries to keep two steps ahead of his shady past, avoiding run-ins with the Zhentarim and other nefarious acquaintances. With his quick wit and roguish charm, Hitch plans to somehow land on his feet, on a pile of gold, with a treasure map in each hand, but until then he needs all the friends he can get.

Calliope can’t resist the lure of adventure or making new enemies, but it’s her friends who serve as the family she never had.
