Background: Armando is a forty+ year veteran of the Andorran Guard, and is well acquainted with the culture of Iberia’s magi. He has much wisdom and experience, and is happy to share tales and give advice. Armando has been on a few drake hunts and accompanied magi on various expeditions. He accompanied Antonio to the Balearic Islands, was with Rodrigo in Valencia, participated in the battle at Bone Hill, and recently accompanied the magi in the expedition to the Palace of Burning Bronze. He was also one of the handful of survivors of the recent attack on the covenant. He participated in the Drake Hunt of 1230, which turned into a quest to save the village of Las Salines from a dragon overlord and an invading horde of ogres and goblins.
