Ebon, Githzerai Scout [RPG]

Digging deep into my binder of old D&D characters, I've come across Ebon, a Githzerai scout sent to the Prime Material Plane to uncover the scope of Githyanki or Illithid infiltration.  I have no memory whatsoever of what teenage campaign I created this character for, and I'm guessing from the rather pristine state of the sheet that he probably only appeared in a single session.  Still, I kind of like the concept, and maybe he'll make a good NPC in the campaign I'm running now.  He was created for AD&D 2nd edition, and we must have been using the Player's Option book at the time.

"Ebon is a freelance operative with the Githzerai Imperial Intelligence Service.  His superiors transport him to worlds on the Prime Material Plane in order to gather information and see if Githyanki or illithids have a presence on them.  Ebon is willing to kill when necessary to achieve his goals (or for a sizable profit) but otherwise tries to avoid killing, seeing it as a waste of time and energy.  He is completely loyal to his superiors.  He sees humans and demihumans as a lesser species and does not hold them in high regard.  He is willing to work with them for information."
