Origin

Being honest has never been my strong suit. Tragedy has tainted my story and molded me to be what I am today. My Mother was killed by a band of Orcs while father was serving some rich noble asshole in the military. My older brother left shortly after her death with my Uncle to find better work in Waterdeep (he was 11 years older and tired of Yartar). This left me, at age 8, alone with my grieving Father. My Mother's death changed us all, and father the worst. There wasn't a day that went by that he didn't have a bottle of something in his hand. Always rambling about "if only i'd been there to save her" and "if only our family name was still in tact" and blah blah blah. The only good decision my father made was to buy a broken down tavern with two inn rooms called the Prancing Pony. Sloshed most of the time, my father couldn't really run the bar, much less manage me. I started playing cards at 8 and realized that I had a knack for lying. As i became a teenager I learned to steal, run the bar, and how to stop my Mother's scream from entering my mind every night: Sex! Drugs weren't bad either. But nothing compared to the scream of women (or men) in the throws of pleasure/pain. Seeing that I was a "messed up" kid my father did what he knew how to do. He threw me to the military like Grandfather did to him when he was out of line. The military taught me two things; how to fight and how to manipulate people. I returned to Yartar after my term was up and went back to running the bar (and running a mercenary band called The Mist). Now that I've run my father's bar for almost 10 years (and using it as a front for the best drugs in Yartar) my sights are on the big city. Waterdeep! My brother sent me a letter urging me to join him and my Uncle on their secret mission.


Appearance

I have black curly hair, blue eyes, and square jaw. I often wear leather armor, dark colors, but with a hint of pattern. When not in armor I have very nice tailored clothes that are very expensive and comfortable (when running the bar). My expression can range from stern to whimsical and light-hearted. I have a stunning smile and have been called a "pretty boy" all my life. I am very nimble, quick, and have confidence for days. That's right, just try me!
