Drakar Rosarius is a sorceror from a family of minor nobles near Salamonis. His volatile nature and natural grasp of magic meant he was not well suited to the family line of polite and civilised politicking in the courts of King Salamon, so his father was happy enough to fund his wanderings rather than risk him causing scandals in the city.
Rather than enrol in the stuffy seats of traditional wizardly study (the famous college in the Vale of Willow), Drakar instead chose to invesigate the family rumours that there was Dragon blood in their line. Following vague rumours and lines of research in libraries, he ended up in Firetop where his research finally bore fruit. After an expensive ritual, Drakar has now embraced his heritage and appears as a strange hybrid of Brass Dragon and man, wielding his magical flames with the ease and grace his natural talent allows him.
He is a well-known and easily recognised figure on the streets of Firetop since the popular ballad of his fight with the dragon Darkhorn, and his arcane talent has earned him a degree of respect amongst the studious wizards of the Blackcloak Academy.
