The 14th Age
A Minotaur bouncer and Sam's bodyguard
Baylor is a maimed Minotaur and a former slave. He was brought to Waterdeep, along with other slaves, to fight former Gladiator Champions at the Field of Triumph. Baylor was disgraced at the games when his competitor cheated, using an illegal poisonous axe that claimed the young Minotaur’s horns. Learning of his story, Thorin purchased him from his owner for a cheap price and offered Baylor his freedom, along with a job as bouncer at the Inn.
In return for his freedom, Baylor honors Thorin by protecting his daughter Sam from the dangerous streets of Dock Ward.
He carries a massive chain as his weapon of choice, the same chain that once bound him as a slave.
