Legedus was found as an infant by an old man fishing along the banks of a
river. He was floating down this river in a basket woven of wood. The old
man thought it was of elven design, judging from the intricate weavings and
style. Lucky for Legedus this old man was a compassionate man, and fished
him to shore and began to raise him. While it was clear that this child was
human, he did have oddly elvish features. The old man assumed he was a
mixed breed of the two races and that is likely why he had been abandoned.
At a young age Legedus began his training, it seemed at some point in life
this old man had been a great warrior. He was extremely versed in ninjitsu
as well as a variety of weapons. Not knowing what else to do with the
child, the old man thought he could teach him what he knew so that the child
would at least have a fighting chance in life when he chooses to move on.
They lived alone in the forest, in an old hut. It was a happy existence,
working the land for crops, fishing and training. Legedus soon became very
skilled at moving silently, as well as the art of hiding amongst his
surroundings. One day a roaming party of vile men approached the hut, the
old man waiting patiently outside for them. Legedus remained behind the
hut, the old man not wishing the approaching men to see him. They men soon
began arguing with Legedus' master, demanding money for protection. the old
man simply replied "From what?" , The apparent leader of the gang sneered
and replied, "From us!" . In a sudden blur of motion, the old man swung
his walking staff about knocking out the leader and the two men on either
side of him. In a clash of shouting and fighting, the rest of the gang
rushed the old man. He fought well but the numbers were to great. Legedus
leapt into the fray and soon the fighting ended, as the old man and Legedus
stood back to back amidst the fallen bodies of the gang. Unfortunately the
old man had been mortally wounded in the fray, a dagger had been stabbed
into his back puncturing his lung. He slumped down to the ground and
Legedus held him in his arms, blood beginning to trickle out from the corner
of the old man's mouth. He looked up at Legedus and with his dying breath
he uttered, "Run now Legedus, leave this place... More will... Come. ".
Legedus left his home, but not before finding the gang's hideout and laying
waste to it and it's members. And so he began his new life, hunting down
the evils within Serin and avenging their victims.
Before you is a man of average height. Hair the color of ebony spills
down to his shoulders like flowing water. From amidst the stray strands
that fall in front of his face, two glinting emerald green eyes stare out.
These eyes are strangely enough flecked with gold, and are shaped almost
like almonds. His face is handsome enough, the lower region covered in a
dark stubble. His nose is rather hawkish, and his brow quite often
furrowed. He has a strong jawline, leading up to oddly pointed ears.
Richly tanned skin covers his athletic body, honed muscles ripple where ever
his skin is visible. Neatly trimmed and cleaned nails and the slight
fragrance of cloves that he smells of indicate that he keeps up on his
