Haddin Ja-Laffa

Once strong and handsome, this man is now old and feeble, his brown hair stringy, his voice ragged from constant coughing. He dressess like a common merchant, but he clutches an aged book to his chest.

TACTICS

During Combat Haddin’s options are highly limited because the only spells he has available are those he memorized with Spell Mastery — a list of spells intended to let him escape if he was ever captured. Basically he just tries to mind control people.
