William Parsnip

A cagey fighter seeking to free his village from petrification.

William Parsnip joined the ruffians at a fortuitous moment in their exploration of the final level within the hold of Koralgesh. Bolstered by a bountiful boon of greed-inducing glittering gold, he took a shine to his compatriots, in particular Dalamyr who he saved from being drowned by the leviathan in Koralgesh, and Gamgar who shares a similar worldview, and who he admires for his forthrightness.

He originally set out adventuring after seeing his entire town turned to stone statues. He was out chopping wood that day, while his sister, Victoria, was gathering herbs and berries. He raided the towns coffers, splitting the gains with his sibling, and vowing to find a remedy to the situation. After seeing her safely to a nearby city, he dallied a while, to ensure she got on her feet. She took up with the local alchemical school to research a cure through that route, while he knew his path to be less than cerebral.
