Notes

Burton Russello grew up in a traveling circus, where he met and married his wife, Isabella, who worked as an acrobat and magician's assistant. Both of them can trace their lineage back to colonists from the Green Isle.

After leaving the circus when he was twenty, he worked as an actor, eventually becoming a director and producer. He was never very well-known for this, but his name was attached to many theatrical productions. He tried very hard to make them a success, but it just didn't pay the bills.

For a short time after he worked as a stage magician, with his wife as lovely assistant, but his simple slight of hand tricks were always trumped by actual wizards doing the same kind of work. He has always felt slighted by real wizards due to this and to this day, he still dislikes them.

Before their children were born, he and his wife traveled from island to island, doing a circus-like act involving singing, acting, acrobatics and fire-eating. Once their first child was born, they decided to settle down.

He turned to adventuring to make ends meet, eventually joining the League of Adventurers to get steady work.

He isn't the greatest adventurer, but he is versatile, able to pick up almost any weapon and use it with decent skill, although he is most well versed with swords of all kinds. He is especially good at fighting multiple opponents either with a sword or his bare hands. So far he hasn't managed to fit in with any particular group and is still looking for one that will have him.

Due to his background, the League is keeping him on for his skills as an entertainer, at least until they can find a group that can get along with him.

The reason he hasn't yet gained a position in an adventuring party is an annoying habit of trying to appear normal. He tries so hard to not stand out that he ends up acting totally strange.

Burton's wife is currently six months pregnant with their third child. She's 76 points with most of her points in entertainment skills of one sort or another, as well as attractiveness and the Voice advantage. She is a skilled acrobat, easily capable of doing high-risk mid-air maneuvers that are quite a sight to behold.

Their first child is their son, Gavin. He's five years old and -38 points.

Their second child is their daughter, Marisela. She's three and -38 points.
