As I mentioned in a previous post, Kolll and Garrrin are probably my favorite characters after Erdrique and Hamllin. Kolll is a level 22 Ranger/Shiradi Champion. I really relate to Kolll in that I see him having a strong connection to the natural environment. When I was a kid, I really enjoyed studying animals (bird watching, catching bugs, looking for frogs and turtles, etc.) and I took that love for nature into a career where I’m currently a fisheries biologist. I see Kolll having this strong connection to nature. Here is his bio:
Kolll’s favorite hobby as a young child was to take a bow and arrow and to shoot at targets posted on trees in his local village. As he grew older, his skills in archery developed and he quickly became a highly skilled ranger. He enjoys wandering through the local jungles and woods and has devoted his time to exploration and to helping others when in need. Through his studies, he has learned to imbue his arrows with special strengths and he takes advantage of this ability whenever possible.
Kolll just had a talent for archery which he carries on with him today. He is a pure arcane archer and I love taking him around to do some questing. Kolll strongest ability is to take his enemies down from a distance and in using his paralyzing shot to keep his enemies from getting to him. He also uses his wide variety of bows to help deal with the numerous types of monsters/enemies he encounters.

Kolll, like Erdrique, likes to help those in need and he enjoys taking down ruthless and evil beings. However, he isn’t as driven as much as Erdrique, and tends to stumble across his adventures as opposed to Erdrique who seeks them out. His affinity for standing up for the weak and to do the right thing makes him a good fit for my play style. Although he mostly sticks to his ranged attacks, whenever he does get backed into a corner he has no problem turning to some blades for some up close and personal combat.
One thing he does miss, is having a personal companion. Maybe one day he will be able to pick up companion (so I hope 🙂 ). Until then, he just uses the onyx panther as personal companion. Kolll finds that he is most comfortable in the open woods and I really enjoy taking him into areas such as the King’s Forest.
These abilities and skills make Kolll one of more favorite characters. Thanks for reading everybody and happy hunting out in Stormreach and Eveningstar!!
