Lawful neutral alignment

Born to a human father and a half-elf mother, Robert Quinlan Costas discovered at an early age that his sharp elf vision and human predisposition for competition made him ideal for providing play-by-play coverage for sporting events of all kinds. From the popular goblin pastime of Stick-Beetle, to the rare-but-enjoyable sport of “basketball,” to the manticore races of the East, Bob has announced them all. Driven by a will to succeed and a well above average intellect, Bob tired of the life of a sports announcer and soon turned to the world of arcane wizardry. Perfectly suited to the intense discipline of the art due to his love for the rules of sports, Bob took to magic quickly and soon became one of the world’s most talented wizards. Bob still announces the odd game when he can find the time during his travels, but even when he cannot do so, he applies his talents in both magic and commentating to he and his companions’ encounters.
