Olon is a black-furred minotaur with a broken left horn. His black-fur is streaked with gray revealing his age. He stands nearly 7 ft tall and weighs close to 400 lbs. He wears a steel earring inlaid with pearl in his right ear, a gift given to him for his years of service to Dunbar Mastersmate. Though he is a retired sailor, his cutlass is never far from his hand.


Olon is very sensitive about his broken horn. Those who question how it came about or comment on it earn a stern look and a gruff reply of "What broken horn?" Those who don't wish to end up on receiving end of his fist wisely, drop the subject.


Olon served aboard the imperial frigate Condor's Fury for much of his early life. He served with distinction for many years until he suffered a broken left horn during a boarding. Having one's horns broken is a sign of disgrace among the minotaurs and his status among his fellows rapidly diminished. Around, the time he reached middle-age he was relugated to performing cooking duties aboard Condor's Fury.

Olon developed quite a knack for cooking, though his fellow sailors did not appreciate it. Thanks to his disfigurement he was the subject of numerous brawls with younger sailors looking to amuse themselves at his expense. His brawls grew so disruptive that the captain of the Condor's Fury demanded he leave the ship while it was docked in Ogrebond. It was shortly thereafter he meant Dunbar Mastersmate.

Dunbar befriended the minotaur and invited him to join his crew. He sailed with Dunbar for many years and such was his respect for the sea-mage, that he followed Dunbar to Wayreth when he became head of the Conclave. At Wayreth he served as Dunbar's personal chef and later took on the role of Head Cook for the whole Tower.

A few years before the War of Souls, Olon and the other permanent residents of the Tower of Wayreth were urged to leave. Beryl and her Thorn Knights were getting dangerously close to finding the tower and the wild magic of Krynn was proving to be unreliable. The Master and Grevasse would be the only ones to remain. To keep them free from the Dark Knights the Master transported them all to Solace.

Solace was bulging at the seams with refugees arriving from all over Krynn. It was there Olon discovered his calling; after all someone had to keep the refugees fed. He took over supervising the makeshift kitchen in Sad Town until a permanent structure could be built. Now he oversees a team of seven that daily prepares meals for the never-ending stream of refugees.
