Rise of the Runelords
storm-loving druid from the Lost Coast
Gellius grew up on a farm a few miles outside Sandpoint. He is the youngest of two brothers, and his parents both still tend the farm. His brother is following in his father’s occupation, but Gellius felt the call of the wild early on and felt that farming life was too domestic. This belief became fully realized in his mind when he experienced a severe storm out in the open and nearly killed by the lightning. Gellius interpreted the storm as a warning from Gozreh not to become too distant or too comfortable away from the essence of nature. That moment set him on the path to becoming a full-fledged druid. Believing that nature not only is dangerous and unpredictable, it also provides for those who are willing to learn its lessons without the desire to change the land. While Gellius himself feels that people are generally good and merely trying to survive in life, sometimes they forget that it is nature that provides for them. To take that for granted or forget that is dangerous.
