Gaspard the Champion is one of the five Amaranthine associated with the Humblefolk races of the Humblewood setting for Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition.

Unusually for an Amaranthine of the humblefolk, Gaspard is believed to be an ascended hero-turned-god, similarly to the patron Amaranthine of the birdfolk. In life, Gaspard was a jerbeen adventurer who, with his loyal companions by his side, sought to punish the evil beings who plagued the world in its youth. After a lifetime of slaying monsters, unseating tyrants and bringing peace & prosperity wherever he roamed, he was rewarded by being elevated to the role of Aramanthine of Heroism & Valor.

For obvious reasons, Gaspard is a patron to humblefolk paladins and similarly virtuous warriors, but he is also frequently invoked by bards, especially those who hope to inspire others with their tales of heroism. Though the jerbeen hold him closest in their hearts as their patron deity, all humblefolk (and even some birdfolk) honor him. The faithful of Gaspard believe the actions of an individual ripple outwards, affecting those around them, which in turn can embolden anyone to achieve greatness. They honor their patron with summer festivals that include storytelling, puppet shows, and magnificent jousts between jerbeen warriors mounted on tamed wolves.

Depiction[edit]

Gaspard is always depicted as a brave and virtuous-looking jerbeen paladin wielding a rapier, often adorned with a pink ribbon.
