1,000 Faces: Lutfullah Haik

Lutfullah is a Sorcerer (8th Level Human Storm Sorcerer), Alchemist, and former member of the Circle of the Wyvern adventuring company. Lutfullah or Lu to his friends is in his early 30s and owns the tallest building in town. He uses the top floor as his laboratory and has contracts with numerous patrons throughout the region, including several nobles. His work is exemplary, his discoveries exciting, and he is always discrete. 

Lutfullah is very careful to keep his friendships and business associations separate. He is calculating and cautious, which has kept him alive on numerous occasions, as well as a keen listener and his eyes are always watching those he speaks with. He has a passion for the violin and makes time twice a day to practice it, preferring to play for only his closest friends and family.

Unfortunately, Lu has a gambling problem and after working up a hefty debt to the local thieves' guild, he's begun working it off by providing Alchemical admixtures, including poisons. While he hasn't gambled in 3 months, it's always tempting him and he still has plenty of debt to work off.

Lu is 5' 11" stands with a rigid posture, his movements precise and designed to waste the least amount of energy. He is missing two fingers on his left hand, due to an accident on his final outing with the Circle. He speaks 5 languages fluently and most people he meets are suprised at his lack of an accent. 

He coldly holds little regard for the Gods, feeling that they treat mortals as mere pawns on some celestial gameboard. His mind understands the strict rules of magic and alchemy and he finds comfort in those things. He only sees customers by appointment, which must be arranged by his secretary, Willem Dowd.

He married a local, Katarine, and they have two children, a 2 year old daughter, Nuha, and a newborn son, Jon (named after Katarine's father).
