“Power never comes cheap.”
Maelorn is a morgëthri noble descended form a nevaari bloodline. He became a mercenary after making too many enemies in his homeland. After much hard work he gained the trust of the *** merchants and became a reliable escort on the seas
Maelorn always had an obsession with power and influence, unfortunately he was born a crossbreed so his bloodlines position amongst the nevaari nobles were tainted from the start. His great grand father and father were competent mages
with the sadistic habit of impregnating morgëthri women, captives and slaves. Being the second generation of careless unions left Maelorn with little innate skill for magic and an unhealthy obsession with finding ways to reclaim his
Viciousness was not an uncommon trait amongst morgëthri nobles, blood, death, and betrayal was all fair game if you could get away with it and without angering the nevaari houses. Maelorn got careless on both points trying to bully his way into high positions and was eventually forced to flee **** with the few allies he had left.
As many others rejected by the morgëthri and nevaari hierarchy, Maelorn set his eyes on Avaschte’hireai as his sanctuary, but without the funds to maintain his life quality and ensure his safety he had to get a job. Fighting and intimidation was his expertise so the mercenary life was an obvious choice for him and his band of misfits.
Unexpectedly, the merchants of *** generously outbid the natives once Maelorn’s reputation on the sea spread and he suddenly found himself working for the enemy. The weight of gold made loyalty and patriotism less important and they would occasionally switch sides to bump up the prices for Maelorn’s services.
