Adril Hestram is one of the most prominent venture-captains operating out of the Pathfinder Society Grand Lodge in Absalom. A confident fighter and veteran Pathfinder, he has more dungeon delves under his belt than most can count. He is an expert in the exploration of the siege castles outside Absalom. The imposing venture-captain is also rumored to be the unwitting architect of the Katapesh slave riot of 4702 AR.
Every year, Adril takes some of his favorite Pathfinder initiates out to see interesting sites around Absalom. The beer-loving instructor steers his students away from any real danger, however, the trips are never wholly uneventful.
Venture-Captain Hestram claims to be from the north, explaining his light hair and beard, but he refuses to identify his homeland. He has traits of many human lineages, making speculation difficult. Adril is a bear of a man, standing well over six feet tall. While his large girth might be deceiving, his bulk is mostly muscle, and he can frequently be found sparring and arm-wrestling with other members of the Society to further develop his strength. Hestram can be quite jovial, with a wide, gap-toothed smile, and is known for his bizarre sense of gallows humor.
