Personality Edit

Biography Edit

Background Edit

Byron came upon a young roc in the Cliffkeep Mountains, the last surviving member of its clutch, its mother having been killed by giants. He decided to care for the creature, relocating it and helping it find food.[4]

"Consequences and Cows" (1x26) Edit

Vox Machina encountered Byron when they were chasing after the roc that had been stealing cattle from the farms north of Emon. The druid was immediately wary and distrustful, believing that they had come to slay his roc. Over the course of a very tense conversation, Vox Machina—mostly thanks to Keyleth and Scanlan—managed to convince Byron to take the roc to Vasselheim, where it could hunt freely in the Vesper Timberland and possibly live under the protection of the Slayer's Take.[5]

When the morning came, Vox Machina left two cows on the outskirts of the farms as provisions for the roc. They saw the giant bird swoop down, pick them up, and fly off over the Ozmit Sea towards Othanzia.[6]

"The Sunken Tomb" (1x44)Edit

While resting outside of the Marrowglade Loch, the members of Vox Machina spot Byron's roc flying over the horizon before it disappears from view.
