"Acci. Imp. NOT an Inferno goblin, or whatever the hell you are. So don't think we're kin." Jumping off the ladder, he looked to see if he had all his possessions. He did. Stretching an arm, he looked at Infernus.
"I do indeed need to tell you all something," Gristoff replied to his three party-mates, "Now," he said as he got to the bottom of the ladder, "The gauntlet taken from me was a very powerful and uncontrollable power, an evil spirit was sealed away long ago and is long since dead, however his cruelty and power remain, and the user soon loses all control to hatred, and will soon consume all power they can, and the world will come next." He finished, staring at his teammates after that somewhat dark story.

Back-story/Bio:Talos was born in the town of Chlitho, a town that's sole task was to hunt and destroy vampires. Talos was taught to be a master hunter, a lethal instrument to be used against the Vampire race. For years he perfected his combat and stealth skills, until he was better than any in the town. He had killed many vampires, and was a respected member of the community, a shining, incorruptible, beacon for all to follow and be protected.
Talos was "created" while he was out hunting monsters. A vampire by the name of Urza found him stalking a spider, and instead of making a meal out of the man, decided to see how the hunt would play out. Talos quietly snuck behind the spider, and swiftly decapitated it. Urza was amazed; in all his years, he had not seen a human move with such stealth. Urza made his way to Talos, however Talos, with years of honing his senses to sense prey, lashed out at the vampire. The duo quickly dueled, but eventually, Talos was brought low, Urza's fangs pumping their venom into Talos's blood stream. At last, it ended, and Talos stood as the very thing he was taught to despise. Urza looked upon him with satisfaction, already planning on how to use Talos as an instrument to increase his stature in the vampire society. However, his plans were brought short, as Talos produced a magnificent, diamond tipped stake, and rammed it in to Urza's heart, instantly killing him.
Talos fled shortly after, despising himself, and what he had become, driven to the brink of suicide. Still, he could not find it in himself to drive the stake in to his own heart. And so he wandered, until his thirst became so great, that he found a small cottage, and slaughtered the inhabitants, gorging himself on their blood.
It was at this point that Talos became deranged, crazed in his blood lust. He traveled from town to town, terrorizing their citizens, drinking the fresh blood of the innocent, and discovering the powers of the vampires. This continued until, one day, he ventured upon his own town. Insane, he attacked it still, murdering every last citizen, drinking them dry, and casting away their husks without a second glance. Until he found his sister, Tina, amid the pile of bodies. Her eyes lifeless and glassy, her small child hands weak and limp, a single tear dropping from the corner of her eye. Confronted with the sight of his dead younger sibling, Talos howled in grief, collapsing to the ground, cradling the his sister's dead body in his hands. From then on, he vowed to find the ones that had did this to him, and kill them.
Eventually, he did. He traveled quickly, utilizing his vampire instincts to find the Kingdom of the vampire race. There he was treated like a normal citizen, and Talos marveled that such a bloodthirsty race could live their lives so normally. He decided to spare the denizens, and find the ruling class. He traveled to their castle, and confronted them and their guards. He killed many, his fury enough to utterly crush several of them, but eventually he was overpowered. He was faced with certain death, but one of the Vampire's decided to use Talos, and gave him a choice: To serve him, or to die. Talos, chose life, and for 200 year, was taught on vampire customs, mannerisms, skills, and techniques, before he was allowed to serve his Lord. Now a fully realized vampire, he was given the task to find the stolen gauntlet, and return it to the Vampire Kingdom.

Talos listened in, his enhanced hearing able to pick up the whispers of the group, even underground. So that's why his leaders wanted the gauntlet. With it, they would be able to control the entire world without question. Talos didn't' like the sound of that, but it was his duty to retrieve the gauntlet, and so he would. He swiftly threw the hatch open, jumped inside, and grabbed a small girl, his stake pressed to her throat. " Now why would such a peculiar group be hiding from the locals, hm?" he inquired politely, his stake grazing the young girls jugular.
"GAH!" Kara shrieked as a man grabbed her. He put a diamond stake up to her throat. ' A spy from the elven lands?' was her first thought ' No, the elvish people usually only use magic, and rarely have access to diamond, who is this man?' Kara stayed perfectly still, fearing that if she moved, the man would kill her. He then grazed a part of her throat with the tip of the steak, causing her to whimper in pain.
Acci smiled as the man brushed past him. "Trust me bud, your life isn't going to be lived as happily as you are right now if you touch her." Throwing his sword directly at the man's face, he knew it would not hit the girl. If anything it would pierce the man's shoulder and leave the girl open to running away.
Talos smiled as he saw the sword flung towards him. He jerked to the side, taking the girl with him, and at the same time upholstering his crossbow. He landed on the ground, the stake still held to her throat, the crossbow pointed at the grey, bald thing. " Surely we can settle this in a civilized manner?" he asked with a smile.
