Dantar Blackbrook

Dantar Blackbrook can recall with perfect accuracy the details of everything he has done, observed, heard or said since the day he turned four years old.

Many War Wizards possess impressive recall ability, but only a handful have the ability of absolute recall that Dantar is learning to wield with precision in the Royal Court where he is assigned as a quiet observer of sensitive activities.

Dantar's most recent assignment is to the Chamber of the Purple Dragon, where he observes and mentally records the ceremonies of investiture, royal proclamations, weddings, and funerals that occur there.

Dantar has witnessed King Foril quietly defuse factions of feuding nobles, the appointment of new Wizards of War, the creation of Highknights and other ceremonies.

The Mage Royal intends to test Dantar's loyalty, by having agents (read: trusted adventurers) offer him coin and valuables in exchange for information of what he has seen and heard.

As a young boy Dantar created an imaginary company of Purple Dragons. With each day that passed, he gave them names, histories, achievements in battle and personalities. The stories he overheard and the tales he read in chapbooks all served to inform his imaginings.

With age and time the unit of soldiers grew into an army, one supported by Wizards of War and courtiers--every individual imagined in full by Dantar.

When not busy with His War Wizard duties, Dantar gives his full attention to his imaginary world, reciting out loud conversations between Purple Dragons, imagining the thoughts and deeds of Lionars and nobles whose actions will have an effect on Dantar's Dragons and thinking up new recruits who will replace soldiers lost to old age and battle.

Dantar is perfectly sane, if a bit obsessed, and makes use of empty rooms and hallways in the Royal Court as much has his own personal accommodations when thinking out loud about the ever growing imaginary world he has created and maintains to this day--sometimes going so far as to conjure illusionary images and give them voices that carry through the halls as though they were flesh and blood people.

I like this guy.
I could see him trying to solve a crisis by submitting it for discussion by his imaginary cast, and succeeding. Of course as the years went by and he used the technique time and time again, it might start to have some side effects.

What is dead may never die, but rises again, harder, stronger, in a later edition.
