Notable primarily for his abrasive manner which he claims to be typical for his home city. In fact he is native to Acryn but finds that a claim to foreign heritage goes a long way in having others accept his conversational foibles. Despite his career as a mercenary Alastair generally tries to avoid bloodshed, however his temper frays rapidly and attempts at diplomacy frequently collapse into vitriol and violence.
Alastair believes his father to be a member of the Graves family and a childhood of angry longing for acknowledgement has left him with an uneasy love/hate relationship with the nobility.
Having had his castle magically moved to the remote villages south of Acryn, Alastair has declared himself Count and promised to protect the region against all threats, foreign or domestic. After reaching an agreement with Duke Corlo, he has been acknowledged as a scion of the Graves family and the new council has accepted his claim to the lands
Following a close encounter with the Rite of Unification Alastair's body is now a living amalgamation of fragments of the world. Also of note is that his soul has caught fire giving him a faint shroud of ethereal flames. Increasingly this appears ragged and incomplete.
Finally having ended the threat of their long-term enemy the Demiurge and seeing his old frenemy Harlon fading away, Alastair expended the remnants of his damaged soul to sear into the heart of the dragon Mudra. Unified with the titan thanks to the archmage's last act, he immolated himself along with the dragon's hatred for mankind.
