Sir Reginald Bewsinax III was an Adanan Engineer, and inventor of the steam-powered back, armpit, and nose-hair clipper, much favored by the fashionable young men of Adana. Propelled to fame and riches by the invention of this ingenious grooming device, he set about the creation of something entirely new - the combined electric ear-waxer, tooth-cleaner, and bidet. Unfortunately, a power surge during initial testing saw a rather large arc of electricity light Sir Reginald up from colon to cranium.
Miraculously, Sir Reginald survived, but the resulting brain damage left him only able say a single syllable from his name - Nax.
He promptly tore off his clothes and ran northwards, screaming his new name at the top of his lungs. Somewhere along the way it also appears he may have killed a reindeer and put it on his head. His crazy talk, and reindeer hat, may explain why the Wildfolk of Pan’s Vale immediately decided he was touched by the gods, and now worship him as a seer. Of course it could also be because his head and his butt are still glowing… we’re just not sure.
King Silenus does not have nearly as colorful a history as Nax; however, even for a goatman, he is incredibly cunning and intelligent. He has been been quite adept at manipulating the various tribes, by forming a close relationship with Nax. He recognizes Nax is quite crazy, of course, but has found that he can manipulate the strange creature’s behavior by offering him shiny metal baubles to play with. And, crazy or not, the tribal elders seem to listen to Nax, and take his word as law.
