Cyrus has a tanned complexion and short, brown hair, he had one blue eye. The other eye he always concealed behind an eye patch. He wore scaled mail armor, well kept in quality, but also well worn in use. Scars around his face spoke of a life that was seldom far from violence.
A stout melee fighter, his preferred weapon was the halberd that he wielded with adroit efficiency. Drawing on the warlock's pact he forged with a powerful otherworldly being, he was also able to wield dangerous magics against his foes.
Another item of interest about this adventurer was his interest and skill in the visual arts. Specifically, Cyrus would often sketch to pass the time, and enjoyed painting on a canvas, when it was convenient.
From his first introduction at the start of season 4, we see that Cyrus Sabal is a haunted soul with a shadowed past. While he doesn't speak about it directly at first, we eventually learn that he hails from Jildos, the City of War, but cannot ever return.
