Maar (マール) is an adventuresome grass-runner and left an idle existence in search of adventure and excitement. He makes an interesting NPC for any party, and is more than willing to join up for quests which seem daring and noble (though he wants little to do with fool-hearty quests). Maar loves to sing, and like many grass-runners is an excellent bard with a knack for weaving new tales and tunes on the spare of the moment. He always has a song to cheer up the party even under the most dire of circumstances. He uses a short sword, but to him even the short sword is a two-handed weapon! Maar's goal is to win renown amongst all grass-runners. He has come to Lodoss to gain experience as a swordsman and a thief. He may look like a child but he is quick and very skilled.
