Alrik Gallowhill is a drow warlock whose patron is the Queen of Air and Darkness. He can only remember events from the past year, and keeps himself hooded and cloaked as much as possible. His last name comes from his first memory on this plane: waking up on a hillside, upon which stood a tree. From the tree, two criminals had been hung. Buzzards and scavengers picked their flesh as they rotted.
