Nu-Ek is Mauxferry’s most respected minotaur surgeon. Despite his large size, he has a deft touch with his surgical instruments. In the past, he has removed significant tumors from the Church of Pelor, the Assassin’s Guild, and various gnomish organizations. On one occasion, he even delivered a premature silver dragon (to the Thieves’ Guild). A true enemy to the disease that runs rampant in Mauxferry, Nu-Ek has plans to open a free clinic for all gnolls to get the help that they so desperately need.
No, but really Nu-Ek has neither class, refinement or an affinity for the shadows. He is a proud and haughty minotaur. 8’3″ and 415 lbs, he is physically imposing. He is more than just muscle, however, and when others dismiss him as ‘a monster’ or ‘cow’ it wounds him. Nu-Ek has feelings and emotions like any other character, and he considers it an insult to treat him as just a walking damage machine. Unfortunately, the only way he has to give voice those complex feelings is by dealing out a lot of damage.
