Desmond is one of the champions of Idle Champions of the Forgotten Realms. He is obtained from the Fleetswake event.

Desmond is a Support Champion whose noble heart and fearsome bite can aid his allies through even the darkest of adventures.

Backstory[]

While on the hunt for food as a teenager, Desmond was inflicted with the curse of lycanthropy. After a lot of work and time, he's accepted his new lycanthropic nature, and now savors any opportunity to unleash the beast inside if the situation arises. Since his companions travel the dark lands of Ravenloft, there are plenty of occasions to transform!

Abilities[]
