Nick was born in a small settlement in Etrus, where most people were still trying to settle in with the wildlife and worshiping Avandra for good faith in the new, adventurous world.
However, Nick wasn’t as lucky as the followers of the goddess. His birth brought misfortune to his family, dispite the fact that he was blessed by a travelling cleric. In desperation, his parents left him at a tended shrine at a young age, where he would grow up.
Over time, Nick would learn about the virtues of Avandra. About travel, luck and, most importantly, survival. Though he spent a lot of time with his nose in the books, he was also taught in the holy arts to aid those in need, especially those wounded or sick. When he finally left the shrine to honour Avandra’s teachings, he was still a beginner, but he knew he could make it with enough instinct in survival.
After a long boat travel from the southern parts of Etrus to the country of Istal, Nick found himself in a world that was alien to him. He knew he was an outsider, but he’d be damned if he wasn’t a well equipped outsider. A cart brought him to a town, where he joined up with a small company to travel to Biontola.
… And that’s where things started going horribly wrong.
Little did Nick know, a few weeks after his departure from the shrine, his biological parents returned to it. Their life had taken a turn for the better and they wanted to see if their son would ever forgive them. When they heard the news from the shrine tenders, and where he had gone, they hired a set of traveling adventurers to accompany them on their search for their son.
