Kiaskurro is a High Kobold with alternating brown and gold scales, his skin possessing the same dry smooth texture as that of a snake. His eyes have a light orange hue, which is all the more noticeable when they glow in the dark. He is 2'4", and roughly 38 pounds.

Aside from his physical colorings, Kiaskurro is distinguishable from savage kobolds by his trappings of civilization. The talons of his hands and feet, though still sharp, have been filed and neatly trimmed. His most common outfit consists of a silken shirt, vest and urban breeches, all underneath an open front robe. His signature articles of clothing are a cream-colored scarf and a dark-colored beret, the exact hues varying from day to day.

Kiaskurro is known as an artist, one whose works are often infused with a magical touch. Though his innate arcane talents are rumored to be extensive, his primary occupation is that of a sculptor. Kiaskurro's works adorn many a town center and city temple, ranging from purely ornamental murals and statues, to functional fountains and well-concealed security golems. One of his masterpieces, recently completed, was an entire castle he was commissioned to design and oversee construction on.

For the most part, Kiaskurro plays the role of an aloof artist. He is often courted by patrons, and appears to choose jobs on a whim. On occasion, he forgoes payment when the beneficiary city is, in his words, "in dire need of cultured stone." Privately, Kiaskurro is a curator and scholar, seeking out and studying the great masterpieces of the past. He's been known to intervene, overtly and otherwise, when a political conflict or raging war threatened to ruin a structure possessing, in his eyes, historic or aesthetic value.

Kiaskurro is often seen with a porcelain pseudo-dragon with fire opal eyes the same color as his own.

Although Kiaskurro has fashioned many a golem for various patrons, none quite match the craftsmanship of his companion, Komitus. This construct is unique for several reasons.

First of all, it is crafted almost entirely from rare and wondrous components. Its exterior, when visible, consists of smoothly-aligned adamantium plates. In between the segments, golden fiber strains and quivers like raw muscle. Its functional eyes are composed of the same fire-opal gems as Kiaskurro's porcelain dragon, while its teeth are composed of a rare clear crystal. Rumors hold that the construct's interior is crafted of even stranger, and that even now Kiaskurro hunts for better components.

Second of all, the construct was crafted by a kobold and its appearance reflects that fact. While it has a body build similar to a wolf's, the features are reptilian. If anything, the construct can be best compared to a tall, limber Komodo dragon, complete with a prehensile tail. On occasion, the construct will change its external appearance with infused illusion magic. In cities, the construct will occasionally assume the appearance of a roaring lion statue, guarding the exterior of a building while its master finishes business inside. In the wilderness, the golem seamlessly fits into its surroundings with the illusion of natural scales or fur. Rarely are its raw components visible.

Third, and most curious of all, the construct possesses its own intelligence. Kiaskurro is often seen conversing with it in tones and in subject matters unbefitting a master giving orders to a golem. Kiaskurro prefers speaking to Komitus in, of course, Draconic.
