Oh, you haven't heard of Scanlan Shorthalt? Well, gird your loins, ladies, because he has his eye on you! A talented musician, master of disguise and dashingly handsome in his own mind, Scanlan sings songs almost as much as he sings his own praises.

Born a poor gnome, Scanlan used his endless charm and soaring tenor voice to croon for coin to support his single mother. One day he was discovered by a half-orc promoter and joined Dr. Dranzel's Spectacular Travelling Troupe, where he learned the ways of the world and honed his skills as a bard extraordinaire.

A loner much of his life, Scanlan has never quite come to terms with the violent death of his mother at the hands of a goblin invasion. While his years on the road provided many, shall we say, educational experiences with the opposite sex, deep down Scanlan yearns for the one thing he's never known - the true love of a fellow gnome.

Still, Scanlan considers himself a lover first, performer second and fighter distant third. On the battlefield he'll support his allies, but rarely draws blood, unless it's to protect fellow gnome Pike. Count on Scanlan for a hearty laugh, a rollicking song and a twinkle in his eye that melts hearts and makes the females swoon.
