The drooping trees swayed their grey and black branches to and fro, the smell of decay hanging in the air. The moon was just beginning to rise, nocturnal creatures skittering too and fro.

It was perfect.

An individual moved among the rotting trees and fallen leaves, shuffling around the large root clusters, and picking a few of the colorful mushrooms at their base. At first glance, the dark brown creature appeared to be a Rreign…or was it a Lasirus? On closer examination, the creature had features of both; a bulky draconic body that gave way to webbed forelimbs, and accompanying wings under them. Three tails trailed behind the creature, and two horns swept back from under its brown mane. Most striking was its lack of usual eyes. What appeared to be scars marked its angular face, tracing down where the eyes usually would reside. On its forepaws, the two sense organs blinked, scanning over each mushroom before picking them.

The locals, however few were out and about at that time of night, seemed to pay little mind to the creature. He was the Quasimodo of the town, but treated without the scorn of such a legend. Antaxes was just another individual residing in Shadowglen, brewing and selling all sorts of concoctions.

What he was known for, and rightfully feared for however, was his knack concerning creating poisons. Few townsfolk had use for such things, but the traveling assassin or mercenary often frequented the Experiment’s shop. A more commonly used item were Ataxes’ antidotes to the numerous poisonous substances that surrounded the town and expansive province. Many a child had been saved by his work and prompt arrival after curiously munching, or even licking, a colorful plant.

Likewise, many an individual had died in their sleep by a knife laced with his concoctions.

The shop and home in which he lived was of simple wood construction, dark moss covering the once brown wood with a grey fuzz. The shop itself was a simple room lined with jars, shelves, and large cabinets, all adorned with colorful mushrooms, concoctions, and various vials with labels. Obviously, the more deadly concoctions were placed out of reach of the curious child or customer. Despite the odd placement of his eyes, Antaxes moved around his shop as he had for years, knowing every placement of shelf, chair, or glass jar.

Few individuals knew anything more than his name, and even fewer knew what he looked like when he smiled. Those individuals often said he hummed a long-forgotten tune as he dropped ingredients into the large cauldron that adorned his shop and home, a slight smile on his draconic features.
