Aldor was a member of the Slayer's Take in Vasselheim. As an NPC, he was played by Matthew Mercer.



Aldor was a human with short, dirty blond hair and a little bit of stubble on his chin.[1] He carried a symbol of Erathis around his neck.[2]




A member of the Slayer's Take, he found his fellow bounty hunter, Lyra, had an obsessive crush on him. Lyra claimed that they slept together once.

"Hubris" (1x17)

Aldor and several other members of the Slayer's Take confronted Vox Machina as they battled a hydra just outside the walls of Vasselheim. When the adventuring band slayed the beast, Aldor angrily explained the contract system of the Slayer's Take and took the group to the guild hall for further explanations and punishment.[3]

"Dangerous Dealings" (1x42)

After returning to Vasselheim following the Chroma Conclave's attack on Emon, Vox Machina saw Aldor in the Slayer's Take guild hall, playing cards with Thorbir. Aldor seemed noticeably scared and anxious when Lyra was mentioned, as if afraid that she might have been nearby.[4]

"The Final Ascent" (1x113)

During the battle at the base of Entropis in Thar Amphala, an undead Aldor was one of several corpses turned to ash by Pike's Destroy Undead.[5]



When Vox Machina were going through their trials to be inducted into the Slayer's Take, Lyra had an immense, even obsessive crush on Aldor. He clearly did not reciprocate these feelings and did his best to avoid her.[6] Once for his birthday Lyra had given him some extremely expensive (10,000 gold) reddish custom-made armor. Aldor was "very attracted" to her that night and they had intercourse.[7]
