Special Qualities
Defensive Training
Against giants and servants of Death Adder, Gilius recieves a +4 bonus to his AC.

Hardy Gilius is hard to hit by any means other than a full-frontal attack. He gains a +2 racial bonus against spells, poisons and spell-like abilities.

Rock Magic Gillius Thunderhead is able to control the earth. Three times a day, Gillius Thunderhead can call upon these magics to cause boulders and landslides to drop from on high onto his enemies. These boulders deal 6d6 damage, and strikes a radius of 30ft.

Lightning Strike Gillius Thunderhead was once an accomplished wizard until Death Adder stole his bloodline’s magic from him. He could not take everything, however, and Gilius was left with the ability to call lightning. Three times a day, he may use the chain lightning spell as if he were a wizard of the same level.

Leap Attack Gilius enjoys surprising his enemies. He may leap onto enemies up to 30ft away, slamming down on them with a stomping kick. This attack is made at a +21 and inflicts 1d6 + 9 damage, and automatically threatens critical. Opponents hit by this attack must save against knockback.

Known History
Gillius Thunderhead hails from the Firewood Kingdom and fought with his only brother Gari against Death Adder as soldiers in the Firewood Kingdom’s army. When Death Adder attacked his village, he was knocked out. He awoke to find his brother’s body laying n top of him, apparently having protected him from being killed during the battle. He was the only survivor. Six years later, Gilius learns that Death Adder is back and he seeks only blood and revenge against Adder and his dark forces.
