Background

Born to minor nobles, Krais lived a relatively quiet life until the manifestation of his in-born talents with magic came to light. His parents had always suspected, but they kept it quiet from the rest of the court for fear of their only child becoming a pawn in the political machinations of the realm and faith. After they confirmed his affinity for magic, they sought the best swordsmen and women to train him so that he may find life on his own terms without having to fall back on his natural talent; talents that would betray him and place a mark on his head because he had gone for so long without notice. One fateful evening, during a tryst with a minor daughter of a neighboring noble family, unbeknownst to Krais, his secret was laid bare for all to see in the evening sky. An unseasonable chill, a simple dusting of frost, but such a simple thing was enough to draw the unwanted attention the Minos family toiled so arduously to avoid. By morning, Krais had assembled what materials and gear he was able to carry on his person and set out for the wilderness; alone. Casting aside his family name in an effort to protect them - his family staged a witch hunt of sorts to mask his escape and fake his death - he has traveled far and wide while skirting the edge of civilization. No doubt it would only be a matter of time before his secret would be discovered once again; such things rarely stayed hidden, but Krais sought to distance himself as much as he could from his birthright. After picking up various sellsword contracts to protect merchants and minor dignitaries, Krais has found his way to Wolf Castle. With the darkening of the age, he has deemed it time to risk his secret being discovered. To what end he will serve, Krais does not know, but he will walk his path.
