Here is another character from my last D&D campaign. His name was Ardd Ulther when he was a simple peasant. However, he fell in love with a wizard's daughter who kept flirting and teasing him. Pretty soon the urge became too strong so he kidnapped her and ran off for a town on the other side of the mountains. He had hoped to make her love him on the way (he wasn't a very bright peasant). Anyway her father caught up with them and, in his anger, transformed Ardd into the creature in this picture. The wizard called him Mangrell and let him run free in the mountains with his ever diminishing humanity. Eventually, he gained the ability to switch between Ardd and Mangrell forms at will, and gained all the bonuses of a lycanthrope.
