Haruck, “Hook”, “The Vengeance Squad” (Hobgoglin Ranger/Assassin D&D 3.5 CR 12 )

Haruck can’t remember much of his early years. left alone in a big city he had to try and survive, what he does remember though is pinching an apple from a cart and being caught by the guards, took straight away to a magistrate who pronounced “Show these monsters a lesson, they can’t steal in our city. Chop off his hand!”. Thus a 5 year old Haruck became “Hook”.
“Hook” soon found out that even a 5 year old boy can get respect when he has a lethal weapon permanently fixed to his arm.
When he became teenager, hook was continuously harried by the city guards, it was then he decided city life was not for him, and left to make a life in the wilderness.
Hook spent 2 years hunting and robbing for a living, he became adept at tracking and moving silently in the shadows up on his prey catching them completely unawares.
Hook has a particular hatred for humans (who cut off his hand) and Elves (who always seem to look on him with disdain). He does enjoy tracking them all down and making them pay, quite often with there lives.
A year ago Hook joined in with the “Vengeance Squad” and is now their scout and Tracker.
Recently Hook has gained a knowledge of poisons and knowing of a colony of large scorpions he can replenish his stock when needed. He will always poison his weapons and ammo before a fight.

In combat “Hook” prefers to fight on foot using his repeating crossbow on any magic users he sees and then closing in for melee. He cannot reload the crossbow in combat so only has 6 shots.
