Winnings

Bio:

For over a decade Christian served as a borderlands mercenary – traveling and working with large and small fiefs alike. He’s traveled with Grollen, dust brothers, and border lords. He has been rich and poor. He returned to Beryl after 12 years in the field a somewhat famous and respected captain or mercenaries. In Beryl, he found his family destitute. Swindled by an Gwinnish merchant, they were deep in debt to both them and an Umbakian interest. He was able to pay the Gwinnish off, but the Umbakians would not budge. He sold himself into the war pits of beryl to pay for his family debt. He’s been fighting there for 2 years now and has paid off the family debt and is now working to earn his own freedom.

He is well liked and respected in the community, having made several contacts over time and a few of them wealthy – though he has never used their services. Over the years he has grown to understand what the crowd wants (blood and entertainment), but tempered it with swift deaths and mercy when he can – he is known to let opponents live more than die. He is often paired against his opposites -mean, blood thirsty men of evil disposition.
