First appearance in Arc 1, Episode 7

HISTORY & BACKSTORY


Rodswell Joybottom, adopted father of Duncan Joybottom, joined the party with Yenward Firestomp, after the death of his son. Upon meeting the group and learning of his son’s fate, Rodswell took it upon himself to finish Duncan’s quest to find his biological father.

Rodswell filled a void desperately needed by the group by acting as their healer. He supported the group through many adventures, keeping them alive in some of the direst of circumstances. He was on hand during the signing of the treaty, skeptical of some of the terms, but agreed to go along with the party. He continued along with the party as they searched for Drock’s treasure. (more below)


APPEARANCE AND PERSONALITY


As a warpriest, Rodswell has a very specific sense of justice and humanity, which some might describe as slightly close-minded. He always pioneers for what is right in his eyes and what follows the laws of not only man but his god.

Further complicating things is the Orb of Light, which has caused great mental stress on Rodswell recently. The Orb is constantly battering Rodswell to cleanse the land and kill and when Rodswell does not acquiesce to its wishes, he encounters great pain, to the point of being comatose at times. The Orb also has shown the ability to overpower Rodswell and take control of his body.

After the battle with Drock, Rodswell took possession of the Orb of Light, the artifact with which Thoril was cleansed. A powerful, holy artifact, Rodswell soon learned that the Orb had a mind of its own. For the most part, Rodswell had the orb under control, with it enhancing his divine powers, while aware that it has the potential for more.

Rodswell continued to adventure with the group. When they came upon the White Ravens, a portal was revealed to the group. Rodswell tried to power the gate with the orb but to little effect. Further investigation into the gate was postponed in lieu of the group gathering the people of Theria against Overwatch.

The group’s journey led them to the small town of Aubrey. There, Rodswell found out that clerics and priests are held in high regard and that the town revered the same god as him. In ordered to get the clerics on their side, the group was tasked to eliminate a nest of vampires, which Rodswell is eager to do. However, during the battle, Ironhide decided to negotiate with Edward, the leader of the vampires. Rodswell was adamantly against this decision. Rodswell still held firm in his belief that the vampire deserved to die, which occurred by Thoril’s hands as they confronted Ironhide and Edward outside of Aubrey.
