Dave the Monk, Human Drunk
Origin: Born into the life of the monastery, Dave was never a patient monk, never really having a knack for spiritual duties of the monk like meditating. Or chores. Or cooking. In fact, the only time he was found serenity was in the midst of combat or at the bottom of a barrel of sacred wine.
He was finally kicked out after a twenty barrel bender that ended with a local temple defiled, half the monastery burnt down and the Master with a black eye. Without a home, he set
out to find a suitable substitute for the Monk’s Sacred Wine. Dave extreme tolerance for drink comes from the fact that he is always drunk. In fact, nobody in
recent history has actually known him while he was sober.
Dave does not believe in magic. He does, however, have an unhealthy obsession with “toys”(Wondrous items) He has been researching one in particular called “The Decanter of Endless Water.” He seeks to modify it, so instead of water, it spouts wine. Dave also has uncanny fear of gnome bordering on racism. Something about a vague memory of wine and something he mistook for a badger.
Dave is 6’0", had a grown out bald hair cut, green eyes and pale skin. He has many scars on his chest and back, no tattoos.
Who is JM: Dave stole most of his current possessions from Jack, one of his Sensei. Jack was highly skilled and therefore allowed to take on more items. Ironically, Dave’s training teaches each monk to not be of the material world, and one of its most skilled followers was a pack rat.
Stick: Dave’s only earthly possession is a stained Oak Quarterstaff. Carved into the wood are two heads, one smiling, and one frowning. In a double helix
between the two faces is a message written in Elvish and Orcish script: This staff, used to obliterate thine enemies, shall be known as: Stick.
1. Everyone is entitled to their own wine. Give it to them, even if they don’t need it.
2. Wine is the gateway to finding inner peace.
3. Find inner peace.
4. Gnomes are weird.
5. Bartenders are your best friends.
6. Stick is your weapon. There are none like it, and this one is yours. Without it, you are useless. Without you, it is useless. You will not give Stick a girl’s name,
because Stick is her name.
7. Magic does not exist; it can all be explained scientifically. Experiment whenever materials present themselves.
