Dragana (16) A lowly kobold captured scavenging in the village of Krin after all the T'Kel had seemingly vanished. The party captured him for questioning and then Thalazzar , whom he would now follow into the Nine Hells ("Yes of course I would. Master, may I lick your boot?"), took him under his protection. He is of the Khi'Gujtuppto tribe. Transformed to appear as though he is a human, Thalazzar introduces him as his alias's cousin, Mublin.
