Cirudan doesn’t speak often, and usually only to Alexander. He and his master often go off together to speak of things they don’t seem to share with anyone else. It almost seems as though he is providing the young human with counsel. He is a competent enough fighter and tracker, and he does all he can to aid the man he claims to follow.

Cirudan was slain by the erinyes devil in the Shrine to the Sea Mother at the heart of Bhal-Hamatugn, while trying to cover the party’s escape.
