Galek Sandstrider, a famed traveler and adventurer who lived nearly 100 years ago. He would have been called a mage. In his final days he was an outlaw and a renegade. He had dedicated his life to answering questions, leaving the wars and squabbles of slaves and Sorcerer-Kings for other men.
He wrote the tattered Galek's Journal which described perhaps the strongest evidence about Ur Draxa, the City of Doom.
Galek Sandstrider is the only known traveler who has seen the Valley of Dust and Fire and returned to record his journey.
No one knows how Galek met his death; some say the Dragon came upon him in the wastes and devoured him because of his dangerous knowledge.
