Sir Fitzroy Maplecourt, Knight (in absentia) for the world of G dcastle, is really a male half-elf barbarian who may have only recently be prepared for their spontaneously-appearing secret. As he therefore the other PCs start in 2010 associated with the Adventure Zone during the exact same degree, Sir Fitzroy is quickly escalated out from the Sidekick and Henchperson annex into the ranks of real Villain.
Just what certainly sets Sir Fitzroy aside from other McElroy character creations is their asexual identification. Other LGBTQ figures have grown to be fan-favorites, like the beloved couples that are queer and Carrie+Killian, bi Aubrey and trans Lup. Nonetheless, Sir Fitzroy may be the podcast’s first asexual character.
