I was a warrior once. Too many battles though, too much death. I’ve lost my nerve, and much of my skills. Being so close to death for so long brought me to the attention of My Dark Patron. The Raven Queen guides me now. I’ll never be the soldier I once was, but I have a new path now, new skills come to me, I begin to feel the pull of some of the old skills too.
I go where I am called to go. It can be somewhat lonely I admit, but until recently my own experiences made me unpleasant company at best. I hope that My Lady will see fit to align my purpose with others soon. I miss the camaraderie of a unit. Being part of something that was the better for all its parts.
I have begun to see myself wielding a weapon in my dreams of late. A saber like we used to use in the old days in my unit. Strange though. Black as night, it is, and fair crackling with power. I begin to wonder if this is to be my next goal, or to feature in my future. The Raven Queen is not always clear in her directives. I must ponder this further.
One thing I do know: When I called for aid, She came to me. We came to an understanding. I serve her greater purpose now. I am no cleric though. No protector of the faith or the faithful. I am her weapon. A Paladin for Death’s own purposes, I go where she wills and Smite those who would thwart or make a mockery of Death.
In addition, he has attracted the attentions of the local girl Nilsa Dread, who sees him as a misunderstood and powerful knight.
