Calder is a black-haired man with grey eyes that seem to look at a person and then right through him. He seems to carry the oracle's curse of not seeing to a great distance, but what he can see he perceives more clearly than some might expect. Calder's body is somewhat weak, a disadvantage he tries to overcome by the use of a belt enchanted to strengthen him to a level ground with common folk at least.
He walks with pride though, carrying within him the gifts of the mystery of time, including magic he uses to heal those to whom the time of death has not yet come, and seeking to liberate himself too of the shadow of death one day. He is serious man sometimes, but surprisingly jovial at other moments. It all seems to depend on how he is feeling when someone speaks to him. Worries cross his mind from time to time, but yet he keeps on hoping, because as people can quote him, where there is life there is still hope.
Oracle's equipment has been added, such as it is, spent the +3,000 magic item points to acquire a mithril chainshirt +1 for him to wear, to give the oracle some measure of protection against things that he may yet encounter. Calder Barlow, the Neutral Human Oracle of Time
is ready and waiting.
