History: Nob Nar was a halfling hero that lived in the Five Shires (specifically in the city of Wereskalot) during the VI and VII centuries AC. Of an extremely daring and good-humoured nature, Nob Nar firstly joined some companies of adventurers to gain experience, finished his travels by returning to the Shires as a solitary hero. He was the greatest of all the yallaren (the halfling adventurers) and he deeds becoming very soon the theme of many legends and hin songs (the Ballard of Nob Nar and the Legend of the Zanna of Gaulthaumyrauz are the most famous). This indomitable and boastful spirit very soon attracted the attention of Sinbad, who saw in him a optimal candidate for the Sphere of Thought. It was therefore that, following the guidelines of the Immortal, Nob Nar disappeared from the Five Shires but was recruited to the ranks as an Immortal protector of the halflings, a role that he covers from when he became Immortal around 690 AC.

Personality: Nob Nar has never lost his vocation for the goliardery and impossible adventure and watch with favour all those individuals that risk their lives to follow dreams of glory and for the good of the next. He is a faithful ally of Brindorhin and Coberham, with who he is preoccupied of watching over the welfare of the hin of the Five Shires, and he has never stopped admiring and helping his patron, Sinbad, the point of reference to which he always aspires. From when he became Immortal moreover, he has developed a strong attraction for Arnelee, a woman given of great courage and astuteness, who shares his passion for adventure.
