Pol is the author of Pol's Tale, an epic in six parts, the first of which can be found here: Pol's Tale - Part 1. It was written prior to 1997, and was hosted on the original (Primenet) TFC pages. It tells of epic deeds from 1x and 2x times. He also told a story about Cyrix and Sirak in their mortal days, which can be found on Cyrix's player page.

Current Description:

August 27, 2011: Written by Cordir
First, scent catches your attention: The richness of a fine cigar and the
sharpness of an olive soaking up gin. Then, the sound: knowing laughter,
the tone that of a man who has seen more of this world than most dream of.
Lastly, the physical: Broad-shouldered like a swordsman, the elusive grace
of a thief, and the aura of a mage, hints of purple and purest bright blue
swirling within. A grin that is both boyishly disarming and wry, sapphire
eyes that tell a contradictory tale of weariness and yet - somehow - still
alight with a sense of adventure. Faithful servant to a trio of immortals,
Sinclair, Tel, and Cordir, Pol was already jaded and old by the turning of
the Second Age of this world. The prankster Court Mage, the martini-sipping
jester, the weary adventurer, he has witnessed it all. His is a life marked
by passion and blessed by fate.

We're closed...go away....*slam*...
Pol has a special twinkle in his eye.

Short Description: (Blue Aura) a radiant gem in a silver band
Long Description: The aura around this ring is what captures your attention: pure, radiant blue.

Look Silver Band Gem Ring:
The metal of this ring has been buffed to a high polish, nearly a mirror-
shine, calling to mind the armor of paladins, or their gleaming blades at
the ready to defend the innocent. Oddly warm to the touch, the band holds 
within it an ember of that undying heat of true Passion.  The faceted gem 
cupped gently within a narrow band of the metal is almost hypnotic in its
allure: its color does not waver as you gaze into its depths.  From every
angle the purity of the same shade of blue winks back at you. Somehow, it
is calming, that color. Steadying. Like a foundation beneath your feet, a
guiding hand at your back, a presence that simply imbues you with a sense
that you are not alone - never again alone. 

Running one inquisitive fingertip over the stone, you are overwhelmed by a
flood of visions of the group known as the Passionate, inspired and led by 
Lord Tel. His wisdom and humor are equally met by his strength and direct,
unwavering faith in the rightness of their path. There are moments of rage
in battle, images of tenderness and love, mirages of laughter and midnight

How came this artifact into being, when the Passionate have been gone, for
all these years? The answer, simple: Passion never truly dies in the heart
of those in whom it has been kindled.

Player Information:

As taken from his BIO page on Cordir's website:
"Shortly after purchasing the piece of rubbish which would eventually change (dominate?) my life, I learned of this thing called the Internet and got on-line with Internet Direct. From there, I found TFC easily enough, and spent many late-night hours waiting for compiles to finish, chat-friends to come on line, and porn/warez downloads to complete killing smurfs, dragons, guards, harpies and the occasional player who pissed me off. I immorted a character who shall remain nameless, got bored and retired and got interested and returned at least 3 times, and have generally extracted every ounce of enjoyment from the game I could over the last almost 9 years."
