Alorik is a PEMES in the form of a black wooden staff about 4 feet tall, with a bleached goblinoid skull on top, leather straps attached to the underside which have bits of stone and metal attached to their ends. He rattles whenever he is moved.
He has revealed that he was previously a Inbound Combat Defense System, working for the Orpa Empire (although this political unit means nothing to the characters). He has displayed the following abilities:
- Ability to redirect inbound ranged attacks (physical, mental and magical) to allies of his bearer through the use of force shields.
- Provides a +10 bonus to Arcana checks dealing with Ancient Magic technology.
- He has a +10 Perception when not doing anything else, but he must devote his full attention to it.
