Tekolo (? AC – 348 AC) was a male Hurdu and a Dragon hunter that operated in Southern Hosk during the Age of Despair. The powerful warrior originally grew up with his people in the Steamwall Mountains, having a strong dislike of Dwarves and Hobgoblins, although he greatly respected Clerics and shamans. Tekolo was slow to anger, but fought with brutal strength with his dagger, war hammer, and spear, and even relying on his fangs or five foot long tail when needed.
By 348 AC, Tekolo had already joined with a group of dragon hunters that were operating in Southern Hosk. The band travelled to Sharlan Park, where they slew three young hatchlings, cultivating their ears and moved onto Haslit. The hatchlings were under the protection of Lord Leonid Althen who hired and sent a group of adventurers after the hunters.
In the town of Haslit, the hunters intimidated the locals, and eventually set fire to the village, leaving it to burn. Tekolo and his comrades journeyed through Spindle Gap and the Deep Forest, killing several Pseudodragons on the way. They ultimately reached the Pillars of the Moons, where they set an ambush for the adventurers that they learned tailed them. However the hunters were trapped by the magic of the pillars for eight weeks, until they were freed during a triple lunar conjunction.
At this time, Tekolo and his fellow hunters faced off against the adventurers, but were defeated. The Hurdu was slain during the battle.
