Description: Gui Long is an aged warrior. He wears the scars that litter his body as trophies of a time long ago. If you have been in the land long enough you may have heard of his legendary title: The Thunder Shell. He is said to be the strongest being that has ever graced the Tortle Kingdom. Even in his own age he carries a staff that no other being is able to even lift off the ground. His nickname comes from people hearing the sound of thunder as he cracks open his enemies with a swing of his staff. In his old age he has clearly not grown any fonder of the world around him, while he seems to admire nature he clearly has no interest in forming new relationships. Especially with Yuan-Ti.

Gear: Tough tortle Shell riddled with scars, tied to it are sharp barbed spikes. A thick wooden staff.

Adventure Hook: After a bit of talking and coersion you find out that Gui Long’s people are at war with a neighboring Yuan-Ti Village. A deadly assassin Yuan-Ti named Hei-Mo has killed Gui Long’s son and taken the grandson hostage. Hei-Mo has offered a trade, the young boy for the head of the legendary Gui Long. Convince Gui Long that you will help him to get his grandson back alive. His shell is tough to crack but if you get through to him he may be able to offer you some great rewards in return for accomplishing the mission.
