Current Description:

A small pile of iron has been placed in front of you. Upon looking
more carefully down, you observe the pile moving. Then, a face 
appears and it turns toward you. A quick glance gives you the
impression that this creature has lived forever. Actually, Gytar is
older than the days birthday records were kept. He has lived since 
the days of Coleman, eternal God of Mirth. However, Gytar choose to 
follow the path of Kalten, the beloved and feared Keeper of the Ivory
Rose. In those days, Gytar was knighted as 'D1' or Dwarven One of the
Ivory Rose. Now the days of the Rose are gone and deities went and 
came. The Lord of Unity, Robert, accepted Gytar in his clan as his
right hand. The D1 of the Ivory Rose is now the Medic D1 of Unity. 
When you listen carefully, you hear Gytar murmur a short riddle:
. Seven deadly sins
. Seven ways to win
. Seven holy paths to hell
. And your trip begins
. Seven downward slopes
. Seven bloodied hopes
. Seven are your burning fires
. Seven your desires....
His bright eyes stare at you, and he says: 'Choose your decisions
well my friend, or Hell awaits us all'.
Gytar is in perfect health.

Character History:

From the 2x Rogue's Gallery:
NOW: 10/28/01 - Dwa [ Doctor ] Gytar D'Alchemist of Unity -LLU- -DOP-
THEN: Dwa [Wa:30 Cl:30 ] Dwarven One, the first dwarf of Ivory
For a long time, Gytar served Kalten as "D1". After Kalten's retirement, he joined Lorna's tigers for a time. When Robert immorted, Lorna released Gytar to be in Unity's service - a rare event as she did not release many Tigers. For the last year and a half, Gytar as served as an Ordained in Robert's service. For a long time, he was titled D1 - Medic, but has worked his way up to being a full "Doctor".


Player Provided Information

I had a great deal of respect for Gytar as a player and as a character. If I had a problem with a Unity follower, as often as not, I'd talk to Gytar first, before Robert. He was calm and willing to discuss almost any situation. It was also a source of humor between us that Robert hated to write restrings - Gytar had earned several, so I created them for him.

Gytar started playing in 1995 at the University of Utrecht (Holland) during his studies Chemistry. Initially introduced by Starlord to TFC, he soon played along with the enthousiastic people of the Dutch clan: Robert, Kalten, Faith, Saruman, Twinklefire and many others. Gytar was accepted in the following of Kalten, and knighted as the D1 of the Ivory Rose. Years later, when Kalten retired, he joined Robert after a short period in the the Flying Tigerss clan of Lorna.
