The Isle of Dread
A bent, old gnome who constantly squints when he looks. He carries the odor of the land about with him, an odor that most find not too pleasant. He is talkative and chipper except when the subject of the natural world comes up, whereupon he flies into a frenzy of excited stuttering bliss expounding upon obscure and often strangely fascinating (to him, at least) bits of lore.
Urol has actually been to the Isle of Dread once before, although his stay, in his words, was, “Unfortunately short – due to events beyond my control, I might add! We’ve certainly nothing to fear this time around!” He demanded to be made a part of Lavinia’s expedition when he learned about it, and indeed his knowledge of the Isle could greatly help the colonists of Farshore. Urol has a strange fascination with poisonous creatures, and his nerve-wracking collection of spiders and snakes is often the subject of whispered talk on the Sea Wyvern.
Urol frequently evokes Amella’s anger during the voyage, despite his best efforts to win her friendship.
