Bio:

Hahaha! Welcome heroes!

I see you have braved the darkness of the under…dark. But it will do you no good! The Ithilids have taken over the city and it has just gotten me SO UPSET that I think I will completely destroy my body to hurt you guys.

What’s that? You do not think that turning myself into an indescribable mess of tentacles and magical blobs is a good idea? You think that perhaps I don’t have a plan for AFTER this battle? That perhaps I did not think ahead, did not think this one all the way through? Hahahah! It is just like your puny mind to…blargh….oh jeez. I don’t feel all that….

Okay, my hand’s gone. Fine, that’s on me, sure, my hand is now a tentacle. I was always a little ambidextrous anyway. A bit. Not all the way. Probably going to put my side career as a piano player to an end. But sure! Okay, now I should definitely get back to the destroying of you because of our minor professional dispute, Catherine. Oooo I am so angry that you are a different professor at our university and….oh Gods it feels like my stomach is….yeah…there it….there it goes….

Yup I am most certainly a lot larger than I was before. I am DEFINITELY more monster than man. And I think….well, I don’t have a mirror on me but I am PRETTY sure my face is now twisted beyond recognition, a terrifying mess of fangs and insanity. Wow, my wife is going to be UPSET at me when I get home, haha!

Stop stabbing me.
