Dagnyr was born into a gnoll tribe in the Eldeen Reaches. His fellow tribe members treated him with disdain because of his relatively small size, his distaste for close-up melee fighting, and his unwillingness to participate in the torture of prisoners. He became adept at dodging off-hand kicks and cuffs; and as he grew older, he spent more and more time alone in the wastes. Eventually he left and did not return.
A few traders deal with the gnoll tribes in the Eldeen Reaches; Dagnyr signed on with one of these for a time as a guard and scout.
Dagnyr prefers to stay in the background in any gathering; he seldom speaks or does anything to draw attention to himself. When working in a group, he will be loyal, but not blindly obedient; if he doesn’t agree with an order, he won’t argue, but he’ll nod and then go off and do whatever he wants. In a confrontation with a party member, he’ll usually just walk away; but the offender might do well to check his bedroll carefully for snakes and scorpions over the next few days. He is wary and suspicious, and doesn’t make friends very easily. He has an un-gnollish dislike for seeing the weak or helpless being tormented, and will usually intervene in such a situation.
