Played By: Dan
Skeeve is an unusual Wizard. While everyone else had more or less serious, Tolkien-esque names, Dan gave his Wizard a more comedic name. Skeeve is also a rustic “farmboy” among Elves, and self-taught himself magic instead of being an apprentice or joining a guild.
Dan is also pretty outspoken, impulsive, and foul-mouthed. He tends to blurt out outragous things, to which I reply, “Did you say that in character?” He’ll often reply, “Um. Sure.”
So what we ended up with was a very brash Wizard with a penchant for shooting off his mouth and dropping the F-bomb.
