Rocky Roads: The Mountains of Grinadier
Talus was born in Grenadier to a well-off family. The father, Zul’dur, a retired Elite guard of Falakian nobles, whom married to a Grinadier merchant’s daughter after a trip to Grinadier where he rescued the family from bandits. The Elf merchant’s family and Zul’dur became very good friends and persuaded him to move to Grinadier. When Talus was born he possessed magical ability, and the family considered sending him to study magic, but the father believed that Talus’s physical gifts would make him a great warrior.
In Talus’s youth he studied under many scholars and received a brilliant education, however, Talus always seemed to have an impatient, almost cold hearted attitude. This made him difficult talk to, but also made him a fearless warrior. As he entered Knight training under his fathers guidance Zul’dur realized that Talus was going to be a great warrior, but he wished that Talus had more compassion for others instead of acting only upon his interests.
When Talus joined the Army, he quickly distinguished himself as a capable warrior, and because of his cold demeanor the noble he served selected him to handle delicate affairs that needed to be carried out with precision.
This went on until one of these assignments resulted in Talus killing his childhood friend whom had become part of a thieving guild known as the Steel Crow’s. Talus realized that he no longer wished to do purely as told, he decided that he would decide for himself what was right and wrong. He requested a transfer.
