Preston "Puck" Emmery


Preston Emmery, known to most just as Puck, doesn't look much like a mage. He can usually be seen wearing military fatigues with a rifle slung over one shoulder and a rather attractive young lady leaning on the other. He is tall and stout, with short cropped black hair and a ready smile. He is quite curious, particularly when it comes to techno-wizardry, but refuses to talk about his training as a mage. And don't ask why he didn't become a techno-wizard himself...

Name: Preston "Puck" Emmery
Alignment: Unprincipled
Background: After seeking out a mentor to train him in the art of techno-wizardry, Puck discovered that his curiosity about both magic and technology didn't translate into a talent for blending the two. His mentor found him quite adept at casting spells and also at operating all kinds of machinery, but Puck just never developed the knack for mixing them. Although he had found quite a patient mentor who was willing to continue working with him, Puck grew increasingly frustrated with his failures and moved on. Thus, with an abnormal range of talents, from piloting power armor to turning invisible, Puck abandoned his techno-wizard aspirations and went into the mercenary field. Looking for work in MercTown, Puck caught the eye of a prominent merc's daughter and has been her private bodyguard ever since, despite her father's disapproval. He's growing tired of the job and the girl, though, and is contemplating another career move soon. The only thing holding him back is the uncertainty of his employer's reaction... will the girl's father just be glad to see him go, or will he use the situation to justify a bit of personal revenge?
