Errol is the main protagonist of Shadow's Reach and the character through which most of the game will be played (though other characters will spend time in the 'hot seat'). Considered to be somewhat mad by his friends, Errol is a Bard with an elusive past and a friendly, outgoing personality. Happy to help out strangers and tag along with the Duellist Marcus in the hopes of writing a story of his adventures that will put him in the history books. The only drawback is the presence of Kalimshan, the god of Shiny Things, who may or may not be living in his head. Narration of the game is always from Errol's view point, including item, magic and event descriptions - which can sometimes lead to you believing that he's as mad as his friends suspect.
A user of Illusion Magic, Errol can cast powerful status inducing effects onto the enemy to hinder them in battle, whilst also using his knives to deal physical damage when he can.
Errol's journey is very much that of a young bard realising that whilst he may be travelling in the company of heroes, he's been a hero himself all along.
