Kylre was a fiend, specifically a nergaliid, and formerly a member of The Fletching and Moondrop Traveling Carnival of Curiosities. As an NPC, Kylre was played by Matthew Mercer.

Description Edit

Appearance Edit

Kylre was an enormous creature with green scaled slimy looking skin and a corpulent form. To those unaware of his fiendish nature, he looked like an obese lizard man. He was allegedly bipedal, but hunched when he walked, using his forearms for support. He had toad-like legs framing a rotund torso and muscular arms.

When using his Life Drain attack, his eyes looked like burning coals. When the party carved his head off after death, his skin was like rubbery blubber. Along the brow line he had a series of small breathing holes that were full of mucus, which he constantly produced.

Kylre was so large and heavy that his head alone required 2-3 people to carry.

Kylre had a large roar and could speak Common and Infernal in a deep, slow voice. Although he could speak, he rarely did. Before revealing his hostile nature to the party, he spoke in brusque, incomplete phrases. When he needed to communicate with Toya, however, he showed intelligence and a grasp of Common far beyond what his initial vocabulary suggested.[3]

During the carnival performance, Kylre was "soothed" by Toya's song. When Enon became a husk, he appeared surprised and swiftly carried Toya out of the tent.[4]

Kylre joined the Fletching and Moondrop Traveling Carnival of Curiosities at some point between Toya's recruitment and Mollymauk's arrival. In this time, he and Toya formed an act. Kylre told the carnival that he was one of the lizardfolk, and they apparently did not question this.
