Appearance[edit | edit source]
Chilchuck is a Half-foot with light skin, short ginger hair, and dark brown eyes. He looks like a human child with large ears; which is common for his race.
For his typical dungeon attire, he wears a brown padded vest and green scarf over a white long-sleeved shirt, leather fingerless gloves, black pants, and leather boots.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Chilchuck is shrewd and practical, rarely taking jobs from adventurers unless he is paid in advance. This behavior was learned from his experiences of being exploited as a Half-foot. He is more open to eating monsters than Marcille is, but like her, draws a hard line at demi-humans. He generally goes along with whatever the party does, but can speak frankly when they do something that can get them killed.
His job as the party rogue puts him on edge, as failure to undo or avoid traps can lead his companions to immediate mortal danger. When other party members ignore his warnings, he quickly becomes agitated.
He prefers to keep his private life separate from his work, so he doesn't tell his party a lot about himself. This is consistent with his belief that the most common reason for party splits is interpersonal issues.
Abilities[edit | edit source]
Chilchuck utilizes his heightened senses to keep his party out of trouble. His field of expertise is in locating and disarming traps and picking locks, but he also uses his sensitive hearing to detect the approach of enemies before his companions are able to.
Chilchuck also acts as the party guide, planning their path, finding shortcuts and remembering the different passages through the dungeon. He is fairly adept at making maps of the ever-changing dungeon.
In battle, Chilchuck is able to wield a bow and arrow and can also throw knives with fairly high accuracy in finding their target. In spite of this, he does not consider himself useful in battle, regularly excluding himself when counting people able to fight. This appears to be due to thinking himself a hindrance to the others, both because his ranged weaponry does very minimal damage and his small stature meaning he would always be running underfoot.
Relationships[edit | edit source]
Chilchuck thinks Laios is not normal. He does, however, somewhat reluctantly view him as the leader of the party.
Chilchuck sees Laios' lack of social awareness as a particular point of weakness in his leadership, as he sees interpersonal issues as the most common reason for party splits.
Chilchuck views Marcille as "the friend who cannot shut up". He is often the practical foil to her more imaginative or idealistic views.
Chilchuck views Falin as "the girl who cannot say no".
History[edit | edit source]
Chilchuck was born in a small village in a basin northeast of the Island. For the last decade or so, he traveled around dungeons doing business: lock-picking, language interpreting, mediating, and item appraisals.
Chilchuck was caught and killed by mimics multiple times when he was a novice adventurer. He once was so wary of mimics that he forgot to check an ordinary treasure chest for traps. He had accompanied multiple parties before joining Laios' and saw many of them split due to interpersonal issues.
He also has a leadership position among the Half-foot population on the Island and often advises other Half-foot individuals to run contracts by the guild before they sign. He charges a mediation fee for this service. Chilchuck created this guild to prevent the exploitation and undervaluation of Half-foots as disposable sacrifices. This was likely put in place after he narrowly escaped being used as succubus bait by his hunting party.
In the past, while in Laios' party, he was caught in a fire/oil trap, which he believes is worse than dying instantly.
