Bio:

A man with horrific luck. Abandoned as a child by his parents in Uldholm, he ended up being taken up by a rich family as a serving boy. Whilst treated rather badly, he would sneak out at night and steal food and money as much as he could.

Eventually, as he grew, he befriended someone in the Traffickers guild, and using the money he’d stolen, he joined.

He has spent the majority of his Trafficking life on ships around the world, especially to Truil Wastes and Dindivar, but then occasionally he worked on land…well, it went badly then again.

During a caravan journey from Uldholm to the Empire, the caravan managed to completely offshoot, and ended up a mountain in Maemeck Matriarchy. Most of his caravan died of starvation or falling from large heights, but eventually he reached a settlement. After being taken in, and treated like crap for some time, he fell in love with a woman in the Military Caste, and even eventually married her. The woman, Acele, was part of the Biauchrus regiment, and he eventually learnt how they tamed and trained them, but only in secret.

After a few years in the Matriarchy, during a joint flight with by Svar and Acele, they hit a sudden storm, and Acele was knocked off her bird. When returning back to their village, Svar was taken into custody for her murder, after all, he was a dirty foreigner. During the night, a friend of his/Acele helped him escape, at which point he stole a bird and fled back to Uldholm.

He then re-joined the Traffickers guild, but due to the massive cock up of the caravan journey a few years previously, he had to start off as an apprentice again. After working his way up to a semi decent position, he was given another mission to cross the mountains to east and deliver some goods to [INSERT THE NAME HERE, I FORGET]. Unfortunately, as he was crossing the mountains, his caravan was attacked, and he was kidnapped. His captors where in fact cultists of some God that Svar doesn’t care to remember about. He managed to escape from some blood filled ritual, after his Biauchrus, called Acele, swooped in and caused chaos. But not before Svar was infused with magical energies, giving him an unwholesome feel to those magically attuned.

Since then, Svar returned back to Uldholm to try again. Then a few months later, whilst in a bar in Uldholm, he was arrested, accused of the murder of a stuck up turd, and shipped off to a mining village in the middle of nowhere.

Svar has then since sworn to never leave the sea. Nothing went this wrong on the sea. At least he still has Acele….the bird at least.

He has relatively average build for a sailor, as he mostly the navigator, so isn’t as necessary when it comes to hoisting the sails and all that stuff. It doesn’t mean he isn’t a bad hand and kicking someone’s arse, especially in sword fights. With shaggy brown hair, and high levels of stubble, he often dresses in guild clothes when on guild business, and general slacks when not. One noticeable thing about his dress style is that he is often covered in lucky charms of many forms. He has been seen to have some very smart clothes, probably a left of from his stealing days when he was younger, but he is most comfortable in sailing gear.
