Ruination of Azlant
Though Carver Hastings signed on as a colonial soldier, he is actually a Pathfinder Archaeologist born and educated in Carpenden, though relatively unknown in most Pathfinder Society circles. Pathfinder Society leadership is well aware that the Talmandor’s Bounty colony may lie near Azlanti ruins originally explored by Durvin Gest, so Carver was instructed by Venture-Captain Brackett of Almas to insinuate himself into the ranks of the hopeful colonists. However, there is a growing concern among the venture-captains that the Aspis Consortium may be spying on Pathfinders as a shortcut in their own research. For that reason, Hastings was been instructed to hide his status as a Pathfinder, hence the deception. His goal is to survey and explore—and eventually inform Brackett discreetly of the nature of any Azlanti ruins on the island.
Carver comes across as aloof and serious. He wants to make a good impression on Venture-Captain Brackett, and he’s worried about Aspis Consortium spies. He has become more approachable after realizing some of the party shares his goals and elevated them to field agents in their own right.
