The party met Alain, a human warlock, within the labyrinth beneath the Nibenese arena. He had been thrown down there earlier by Min-Suu for being an arcane caster who would not devote himself to Nibeney, and she must have presumed him dead. He is a fey-pact warlock whose pact required him to search for, learn, and cast a ritual that will undo the destructive power of defiling magic (though it does not regrow plants and it only works in small areas). He’s a fairly soft-spoken character who seems to find the idea of throwing Fips in Min-Suu‘s face and watching her tear the Templar to shreds hilarious and speaks often of wanting to use his magic to teleport Min-Suu off a tall building. As the two seemingly sane casters of the party, he and Mikal seem to have become friends, or at least more friendly with each other than they are with Djee, T’Chak, and Fips. Also, undoubtedly due to his tribal heritage, he’s the most likely to reuse items from slain enemies, from taking the hide and fangs off a dragon to wanting to carry the head of a venomous snake around to use as a weapon.
