Adrian Forrester had a rough childhood. Born and raised in a cabin by the forests around Luciensburg, he lived under an abusive drunkard father whose job was to clear forests with his axe when he found the time to be sober and a meek mother who shared in her son's torment but provided the comfort Adrian needed as a human touch. Adrian was friends with another local boy named Richard from Luciensburg who would come to the forests to play with Adrian. One day when Richard had came over to Adrian's house, Adrian's drunkard father in a fit of rage believing Adrian was slacking in his chores threw a large piece of lumber towards Adrian but hit Richard unintentionally. The accident caused Richard to succumb to internal bleeding days later and sent Adrian spiraling into a deep depression which in turn affected the rest of the family. About two years later when Adrian was age 10, a fire had encircled Adrian's home while he was buying groceries in Luciensburg and killed his family - the cause of the fire being unknown but suspected foul play or just a horrible natural incident. Regardless, the incident gave Adrian a horrible fear of fire making him a pyrophobia. With no more home and no more family or friends to go to, Adrian returned to Luciensburg and lived on the streets until he was picked up by the local priests and raised in an orphanage where he received a decent education given it was a free one. At the age of 18, he left the orphanage and decided to travel to the capital of Man, Providence, to receive a higher education in hopes of becoming a lawyer or a priest like those that took him in when he was first orphaned but along his way he was robbed by a marauding group of bandits. He complied and handed over all of his remaining belongings so that he would not be skewered by a blade. Now lost, without money and with so much uncertainty, Adrian now must decide how he is going to survive in a very uncaring world.
Adrian was taken aback at first unsure if he should trust the well dressed gentleman. With nothing to lose though, he would finally speak up and reply "Hello! I'm just a young man trying to find a place to call home. All I have really are the clothes on my back and a small handful of coins I should refrain from spending but I would desperately like some new clothes. Do you know of anyone in this port who is hiring unskilled labor?"
