Rise of the Eternals
The Talon of Owls
The Talon of Owls is a group of men and women devoted to protecting the Known Worlds. The group was originally formed by Maester Guivere Maelon as a way to monitor Theodoro Rex, whose behavior was becoming increasingly erratic during his tenure as Archmage. The original group was Maelon, a young professor named Jon Sharpe, an older professor named Sidoris Quinya, and a halfling spy named Twelve Fingers, who helped keep tabs on what was going on in the city of University. The four followed Rex’s movements extremely closely, and, in a few instances, helped against the fallout caused by Rex’s selfish and brash actions. One such example is, after Rex payed nearly 100,000 Gold Pieces to a poor family in exchange for a child’s drawing of a Giger’s Glyph, the Talon of Owls relocated the family so they wouldn’t be robbed or taken advantage of. The group’s exploits soon reached the eyes and ears of other University members, including Myrcella Starborn, a University student with a gift for gab, and Silverslip, a member of the mysterious organization known as The Harpers. The group now has a core membership of five (Twelve Fingers was forced to leave the group after he was arrested, and The introduced Silverslip- his half brother- to take his place), and an extended membership of about thirty. These thirty include the adventuring party. The group’s current focus is trying to ascertain whether or not Myrmodon, an excruciatingly powerful ancient black dragon that should be in an eternal sleep, is still in his promised state of slumber. They are also trying to find out more on the Ouroboros, a terribly cruel organization devoted to starting wars simply to see people suffer.
