Standing a monumental 4’ 0” tall, Lazio excels at being looked over. When he is not being accommodated on account of his trusting face, he is being admired for his “hair like golden sunshine”, as certain gnome bachelorettes have been known to describe it. He has taken to wearing a bandana to hold it back, for fear of blinding those who view him. Lazio is clearly Vistani, marked as much by his bright and mismatched clothing as by his black eyes and violet facial scar. Even from afar, Lazio has been recognized as the halfling with a jaunty step.
Born and raised in the Vistani culture, Lazio has known a life that some would call hard. Inhabiting precariously-balanced and hastily-constructed scaffolding on the sides of Zephyr and other floating island cities, the Vistani manage to propagate their culture of roving and revelling even in the air. Though Lazio himself has not yet had the opportunity, it is not unusual for Vistani to simply jump from island to island when they pass by, leaving with the silent promise of an eventual return.
Having just reached the age of 18, Lazio is leaving his life of revelling and street-corner-musician-ing to engage in the Vistani tradition of Jaunt – a ritual in which he leaves his home to find something of value to bring back to the clan. Brand new leather armor and short-sword in hand (both of which he finds surprisingly heavy) Lazio is ready to take on Zephyr and more.
