Karn was born to a single mother, as his sire fell in combat defending his sworn lord in a battle on the outskirts of the lands they lived in. He grew up quick under the guidance of his elder brother and his mother. Learning how to hunt, cook and a bit of smithing. Although it was more then common to see him practicing his skills with a handaxe or sword with his brother, hoping to honor his fathers and ancestors names with future blood and glory. Nearing the age of sixteen he joined his brother in leaving their home to enjoy the life of an adventurer. Wondering what they lives they would live now be. Following the steps of those before them, seeing the world and allowing it to mature them for the better or worse before they find a permanent home. For four years Karn accompanied his brother as mercenaries to hire in a way, taking work as trackers, hunters or fighters if need be. If it was something the brothers saw as a challenge, then they took it without hesitation.
Nearing his twenty-first namesday Karn went off to adventure on his own, taking a bet with his brother after so many years they would see who would have earned more fame, glory, gold and the such before either of them would hit the age of thirty, or death. Although nothing was put on the bet, both are too pride riddled to give their beloved brother a chance at victory. Bringing Karn to where he is now, a wandering mercenary looking for work a plenty.
Although with his recent travels he has picked up a tome of history. Dating events of Anthos and Asulon, noting the crowning of Emperor Godfrey The First. The rise of the White Rose. The unification of the human kingdoms such as the end of the war with the Teutons. Along with the peaceful talks to obtain the trade rich kingdom of Salvus. The book further goes on to notable pages regarding Silverblades, Horen-Hightowers, Therving and so on. Spiking a new found interest in ancient texts and history.

The scar and tattooed man casted his gaze on the rather welcoming merchant. Offering a bow of his head before speaking in a gruff and firm voice. “Afternoon.” His eyes wandered around for a moment to the various merchants, travelers and citizens alike going about their day as he listened to the merchant speak. “Although I must say, Adventure ‘n wealth sound like a howlin’ good time to pursue. Nay, I be searchin’ fer an ol’friend so to say. I know where to find his sorry hide. Although I have not stepped foot in this city before.”
Scratching his beard with a single digit he looked around once more, honestly looking lost before he spoke again. “The Drownin’ Sailor is a tavern here, aye? Can ya point me in the right direction?” With his question asked, he would be on his way, with or without the gentlemen aid.
