Backstory

I was born and raised in Imperial city . There I lived a soft uneventful city life coming as I did from a middle class merchant family. My father had traveled a lot in his youth before I was born but now had grown weary of always traveling and wanted to settle down to find a safe place to raise a family. I however was still young and eager for adventure and wanted to see the world. Once I reached the age of twelve years I would often foray into the neighboring woods. to allay the boredom of the city. As the woods even in that civilized part of myrium still harboured wild beasts and robbers .I often brought along a hound and a club to keep me safe on these solitary marches.Then when I reached the age of eighteen I grew even more weary of the dull city life for I had heard from listening to traders and seamen that a wider world lay beyond the sea where a young man of mettle could find fame and fortune. For by then I had taken to frequenting the port of imperial city. It was then that I decided that if there was a wider world out there then I was going to see it before I grew grey hairs. So at the age of eighteen and a half I had a mighty sword forged for me as the club while it might offer some protection against a roving unarmed or lightly armed thief it was no good against a more formidable foe be it man or beast.Having gained a mighty sword I then attired myself in the best garments I could afford, bade my parents farewell telling them I was going out into the world to seek fortune and adventure and took passage on the next merchant ship leaving Imperial city. The voyage was hard as storms pushed against the ship and the very gods of the sky themselves seemed like they were against us.In the end the intended six month voyage took 18 months and the food and water supplies were only made to last to the end of the voyage by strict rationing. I came ashore at Queen’s landing in Van deamons province .There it was certainly wilder than Imperial city. The settlement consisted of. fifteen to twenty ramshackle wooden houses with only two businesses a tavern and a greengrocers .
It was there I saw magic used against someone for the first time.An undead and a dwarf were having a dispute over a bottle of wine in the tavern. It seemed the dwarf had stolen the undead’s bottle . Then the undead blasted the dwarf with fire .Soon he was dead beyond healing.After seeing this accursed sight I hastened out of the tavern and inquired as to when the next land caravan would be leaving.A guard in the town informed me that a caravan of thirty horses and one dozen mules would be leaving at first light. for a place called fortune’s bay. Figuring that the bay sounded a good place to live after all it even had the name fortune. I booked a place on the caravan spending my last gold piece in the process. As I was feeling the worse for drink and did not wish to miss the caravan I spent the night in one of the wagons. By the time I awoke we had left civilization far behind and apart from a hermit’s hovel of charcoal burners hut here and there there was no sign that any intelligent race had come this way since the world began. After six months on the road during which I saw many amazing sights including my first beast man we arrived at the town of fortune.Thinking the company friendly and accommodating and surrounds wild yet secure at the time I decided to stay for a while and see what life in Fortune’s bay might bring

Backstory

Growing up in the town of South Glogwut I lived as an only child of my parents to whom I cared deeply for. Sadly my parents were struck down
by a wandering band of eight strange men who were only identified by marking on their face of a crumbled tower and the presence of. The men laughed as they leaned over my dead parent’s body telling me that I should run and keep on running

So I did

I ran and ran till I could run no more. after wandering aimlessly for many weeks I found my way to the large city of Forgeborn however it was more commonly known as the city of blood and steel with the creation of many of the weapons for the hundred year war and the cities central location leading to many sellswords making their home here. I quickly learned that no one cared for yet another street rat so
I begged for most of my young life until I was subject to other boys moving in and beating me to keep me away from the streets. It was after one of these beatings that I found Garek.

Garek nursed me back to health and ask if I wished to be a Beggar the rest of my life

After recovering I served as a pickpocket and Garek trained me in the ways of street fighting, daggers, and the ways of moving without being seen

After many years I grew to become a well-known thief but Garek wished better of me so we moved into the business of sellswords and worked for our drinks and dinners. It was during this time that I and Garek separated as we moved down our new paths.

The work of a sellsword taught me many three things

  1. Always weight up your target, know more than they known and never let on that you know
  2. Always be ready for the situation to change
  3. And finally, the world is cruel… So…very….cruel

He told us that Mavhe was possessed by the spirit and that it would take at most a week to exorcise it. During his time with us i asked him about the manor of what he does. this started my fascination into occult which includes things such as demons and evil spirits, powerful curses, holy and demonic weapons and legends etc. After Admenor exorcised the spirits from Mavhe and left to continue in the fight against the demons i started going with my dad to all the kingdoms to study occult.
