Pixie Beast Rider
A former tamer and animal trainer for the Unseelie Court, Hawkthorn spend much of his life living at the castle training the animals to well behaved and mild-mannered for Princess Hellebore. One evening while taking some of the horses for an evening trot, he came across what appeared to be a baby puma, though it had extra legs and strange appendages protruding from its back. He took the creature home with him that evening, attempting to nurse it and raise it as his own. As it grew in size and appetite, Hawkthorn soon came to realize this was not a mutated puma and began to seek help identifying the creature. After scouring the royal library bestiary volume, he became convinced he has in fact found an adolescent displacer beast. Such creatures were in fact hunted in the fey realm due to their violent nature. To be found with one, let alone raising it, was career suicide, if not actually suicide. While Hawkthorn was able to keep the creature hidden for a few years, it soon enough outgrew his modest abode and he was forced to flee. Taking the young displacer, and a letter of transport from the Princess Hellebore, he fled to the material plane, in search of the princess’s grandson, Snapdragon, to watch over his growth while she resided in the feywild.
