Probably somewhere in his 30's, Shale stands around 5'9" with a non too impressive build. Gold serpent shaped eyes take in the world around him with both a sense of wonder and learning, while at the same time plotting how best to put those things to use.
Warlock and Necromancer, he's never been one to shy away from the darker magics. Shale isn't evil per se', but he is nearly always willing to pay the price of knowledge. (image used is of Ben Barnes)
