"Why with the mask?" No questions
now almost 40 years of age, has led a life of struggle and strife – seeing many deaths in his time. At a very young age he was drafted from his home in Audacity to undergo military training until the age of 17 when he was called to participate in a successful Blitzkrieg on Brutalis, where he then served as fourth Assassin in command for the ruler until the age of 28. At the age of 28, the ruler was overthrown and Arduous was brutally beaten and sold into slavery. With sensors and many bones now unusable or broken he was bought for a small price by a man who lived in Advantus – who was able to craft a device bringing back sight, hearing, and speech, and repair all bone damage to return functionality but losing all training. The man who repaired his body, very old in age, turned away a small group of assassins from Brutalis – who were looking to kill Arduous but are unaware of his appearance – who in return murdered him and continued to search the rest of the town. Arduous escaped to Cloister, using a hidden shuttle whose entrance he found in the old man’s will and is now a full time sugar farmer. Arduous is currently a middle class citizen in Cloister, who keeps to himself and uses as few acquaintances and words as possible – living on his farm, and unknown to many who live in Cloister. At beginning of campaign, Arduous has taken a ship to Sormul in hopes to expand his sugar market and has taken safety in a small group of nomads.
