Legends tell of a man so possessed with his thirst for knowledge that he would wrestle a rampaging gorax, ride bareback on a dracodile, and pluck the spines off a sleeping spine ripper - just to get to know them better. By any normal standards, Professor Viktor Pendrake is utterly mad. By heroic standards he is a fearless adventuring scholar as comfortable in halls of Corvis University as he is in the lair of a dire troll.
Pendrake is the author of the Monsternomicon - a volume detailing some of the most dangerous creatures to inhabit western Immoren, including the mysterious Skorne arriving from beyond the Bloodstone Marches.
Pendrake continues his quest to catalog every wild creature that stalks the lands of Caen in No Quarter magazine.
