Background: Mahler's history is a little
mysterious. He has no idea who his father was and
believes his mother to have been attack by a Reaver while
carrying him. He is certainly abnormal, standing well
over 8 feet tall and posessing the strength of a dozen
men. He was either abandoned or more likely sold to a
shady promotor named Quick. Mr. Quick started with a
travelling circus that was more like a sideshow. He had a
number of Riven in his crew and would charge people to
see them perform. Mahler was a strong man. Even as an
adoslecent he was taller and stronger than most grown
men. As an adult he was unprecedented. Eventually, riven
became less popular as a spectacle and more a matter of
disgust or horror. Times change and Quick changed with
them. He dissolved the circus, leaving most of the
performers stranded in Boothia. He kept Mahler, though,
the prize of his retinue. Returning to their home ground
of Tallon, Quick began billing Mahler as a wrestler.
Personality: Mahler, like most really large powerful and simple people is gentle and kind. He does not need to be brutal or violent. He is fiercely protective of his friends. He has a great love for small animals.
Quote: "Aw, yer pretty strong for a little feller.
Powers/Tactics: Mahler naturally relies on his tremendous strength in combat. He was trained as a wrestler and prefers unarmed combat. His typcal attack is to grab and squeeze his opponent. He tends to use as little force as is necessary to get the job done.
Appearance: Mahler stands eight feet in height. His physique shows many of the signs of clinical gigantism, with enlarged hands, feet, and jaw. Although he appears strong, his musculature is not highly exagerated, showing little of his incredible strength. Mahler is fair complexioned.
Game Notes: Mahler's Growth is built with a house rule that requires buying all of the things that growth gives you (and getting points for all the negatives like decreased DCV), and defining the growth as a special effect. The points in his character sheet are a bookkeeping figure.
