"Somethin' ain't right. I don't know what it is, but I can feel it in me bones."
Riol is a man of the Midlander clan who once numbered amongst the famed Company of Heroes. His role was chiefly reconnaissance, and when the sellswords set out to defeat the primal Titan, it was he who discovered a hidden means into the kobolds' rocky stronghold. After the Calamity, Riol briefly worked as a freelancer, covertly imparting his knowledge to the Warrior of Light and his allies when Titan was again summoned unto the realm.
With the Crystal Braves, Riol led a unit tasked with the gathering of intelligence. He was proficient in this capacity, and took the initiative to track a suspicious trail of coin flowing into the company. After the Braves disbanded, Riol joined the Scions, where he continues putting to good use the myriad skills he has accrued over his thirty-seven summers.
Noble intent aside, Riol also enjoys gambling—and is so practiced at cheating that folk seldom notice, if ever.
