Bonds: Sauler sees himself a man alone in an uncaring world. Any bonds he does create is out of necessity. His closest bond is his sister, Mara, but deep down he feels like Mara is only with him because she is too good of a person for him. Sauler is also connected to the Robinhearts because he believes inclusion to this guild will lead to information about Vampires.
Flaws: Sauler is often narrow minded in his pursuit of revenge against Vampires and the undead. He often enters dark places in his mind as a way to connect himself to this undeath helping it will lead him to the Vampires and give himself the upperhand. Sualer believes he must become a monster to destroy the real monster. His only major pursuit in life is revenge.

Background/Backstory: Sauler Dawnpelt grew up in Garranthe and was interested in studying the history of the world. He considered a life of adventuring, discovering places and finding ancient relics. However, he ended up working at the local library in Garranthe where he met a woman by the name of Charlotte Greenleaf. She was a farmer’s daughter but spent lots of time in the library learning about all sorts of topics. The two started talking more and more and ended up dating for a year before Sauler asked her to marry him. She said yes and they were engaged. Shortly after this a clan of vampires came into Garranthe and several people went missing during this period. The vampires killed Charlotte and Sauler was devastated. He was severely depressed and lost all will to live. His sister, Mara dropped out of school to be by his side and take care of him. Months went by where Sauler spent a lot of time staying in bed, but then sadness turned to anger. He became determined to find the vampires that killed Charlotte and rid the world of these monsters. Sauler learned all he could from the library in Garranthe but he eventually left the city with his sister to Xylon where he joined the Robinhearts. All of this is to find out more information on the undead and Vampires.
