Jo’Rhirr and his best friend/boyfriend
back from caravan days; argonian Bad-Aim who works as knife thrower. Just like his name suggests, Bad-Aim’s really bad at aiming and hence totally sucks at his job. Jo’Rhirr casts illusions on every performance to hide his boyfriend’s failures. Bad-Aim, however, is really good at gutting people with his knives in close combat and doesn’t mind doing that when their caravan needs protection. Or when Jo’Rhirr gets in trouble because of another scam of his.
