Orik Vancaskerkin – Knowledge(Local) DC30
Orik is a mercenary from Riddleport. After a scam involving a tiefling prostitute, a shifty alchemist, and an elixir of love, Orik was forced to flee town. He’s pretty sure that Clegg Zincher, the now-dead alchemist’s powerful brother, still carries a grudge for what Orik did to the alchemist when he discovered, to his horror, that the elixir of love was actually just a cheap ale laced with lavender. While Orik bears no regrets for murdering the alchemist, he does regret the fact that Clegg Zincher effectively made it impossible for him to continue living in Riddleport. He misses his hometown greatly, despite the fact that little good ever came of living there, and has several half-formed plans to return there some day to face Clegg and perhaps seize control of Zincher’s power for himself.
Orik is ruggedly handsome, with a visage and demeanor that doesn’t mesh well with smiles and laughter.
Type: Medium humanoid

Someone from Riddleport can identify Orik through a DC (20) knowledge check
