Grog 2: Golo, the winemaker
The first son of a winemaker, we was trained to take over from his father, however rumour has it that he knifed a neighbour over an off colour comment over his sister. Rather than face justice, he left his hometown of Ingelheim, never to return. He has travelled extensively in the South of Germany and worked when he could as labourer for winemakers in the Mosel and Franken region. Unfortunately his temper gets the better of him and forces him to move on. He has learned to live off the land as much as he can.
Note: This works for any wine maker, this could easily be switched to different regions, such as Toscany, Burgundy, Bordeaux... As is ,he is eminently suited for a Rhine Gorge Covenant since he is more or less local.
A tall looking farmer, still in his youth. His hair is all the blonder than it is sunbleached, his skin is tanned from his long hours spent walking or working in the sun. His hands are calloused by the years labour. He already looks weathered by his extensive travels. He is poorly dressed with his clothes damaged by bad mending. His great solace is wine, in which he takes pleasure and is at his most friendly. Until something sets him off, then the fists are flying.
Why is he in the covenant?
Golo the winemaker is a wander, his cannot go back home, nor to any of his previous employers. While he is a passable winemaker, he can survive off the land when need be.
He can be the winemaker for a covenant with a vineyard, but will also be able to assist in many outdoors activities.
Of course his anger issues will probably put him at odds with other grogs, or require the Covenant to get him out of trouble when he starts a fight with nearby villagers.
