Growing up the child of a black smith and a waitress at a local tavern, he was no stranger to the true nature of men. The lustful and lecherous as well as the hard working and war driven. As such from a young age he was pressed to help his parents. While most kids his age went off playing and enjoyed their childhood, he spent his time training and working. In his youth it was mainly helping his father and learning the trade, with his mother it was learning to read people and keeping their hands off her.
Although young, he was no slouch, reaching over six feet tall by his preteens the boy often over looked most men. This coupled with good genetics and his father's line of work he was rather built. Most often mistaken him for an older novice adventure. But that life wasn't for him, at least not initially. It wasn't into his teen years he'd become conscripted into his lords war and fought valiantly making a name for himself. His skill with a blade was unmatched, his ability to take on greater foes un rivaled. His feats and highs unlike any those around him could compare.
Yet his humility would come some time later into his 20's when he met his match, his equal and his love. A dark skinned goddess with whom he loved to her last breath. Learning much from her and experiencing new things, emotions feelings. The two would last a while. That was until the fall of his kingdom, upon returning from a conquest they'd be ambushed by another army. Valiantly fighting, till her demise. They had won the battle, but at what cost. Losing her was too much, so upon the demands of his lord he'd renounce his allegiance to the kingdom.
Had it not been for them he'd still have her, so leaving his family and friends behind he'd take to the life of bounty hunting and becoming a mercenary. His blade crafted of his fallen love's armor and materials. She was his sword and he was her shield and even in death he'd be damned if his queen wasn't going to be by his side until his last breath. Thus he'd walk the very land seeking out the day he could return home to her; a worthy opponent and a chance to reunite.
