Tom Collins is a Half-Elf Warlock and one of the three player characters in the (K)nights MaxFunDrive bonus campaign. He is played by Griffin McElroy. Described as an easily shaken eldritch bartender, he works at and owns a bar in the commons of Capital City. He often gets upset quickly when in tough situations.
Tom grew up in Capital City listening to Lenny's music. Later, according to him, he would attend wizard high school for ten years, although this is debatable. Some time later, Tom would form a pact with an ancient and long forgotten God, called the Great Old One, for unknown reasons. He was then gifted warlock powers, but, due to the stigma surrounding warlocks, would be forced to pretend to be a wizard. He is bad at hiding this.
Powers and Abilities
Sometimes possessing the ability to speak through Tom, the Great Old One also gives him the power to communicate telepathically to others. He is also proficient with thieves' tools.
