Character Information Edit

Background Edit

Vertuk was nothing more than a thug, everyone knew it. Petra d'Tharashk, his own mother, an half-orc, was well placed within the house, supervising the trade of the dragonshard. But her only son didn't seemed to have inherited of her charisma and wits. He was a slow minded brute. That had created a lot of stories about his unknown father, but the remarkable work of Petra had allowed her to avoid to answer to many questions. She was too profitable for her House and his son was doing a good, cheap controllable guard.

Vertuk worked during the last ten years for the house. During the War, he was assigned on shipment that had to cross dangerous lands to deliver the good to the proper armies. During peace time, he was mostly assigned to warehouse. It is only during the last year that he was given a new assignment. He has been dispatch to the Shadow Marches, near the Eldeen Reach. In the heart of the bayou was hidden in a cave, a large dragonshard. It was far from any deposit, an the Gatekeeper who was working with the house wanted to inspect the discovery made a few week earlier.

Delan, a gatekeeper and Landrec and Jarask d'Tharashk, two officers within the house, had to work in coordination to determine the nature of the discovery. With them, a few guard to make sure no intruders would enter the cave, even if the population of the region was not really the kind to bother for the dragonshard, but more for the food that was stored within the camp. It is a month later that the dark events had happen. During the night, Jarask and Landrec had been sneaking within the cave. Vertuk, on his guard shift, saw him and followed him. As his superior, Vertuk didn't stop Jarask, he only decided to spy on him to see what he was doing. There, Jarask free a Daelkyr that was imprisoned within the crystal. The creature killed the two officers. It then took the appearance of Landrec It easily spot Vertuk and come to him. Instead of killing him, he touch the half-orc on the chest, where appeared an abberant dragonmark. It then knock him out.

Vertuk awakes with a blanket over him. It was late during the next night. He heard voice talking about Vertuk freeing the Daelkyr and killing Jarask who was attempting to stop him. At least, Landrec had been able to stop him. What else could they expected from a man marked with the aberrant dragonmark. It was a good luck that the bastard was dead. Also, that was a proof that his mother had an affair with a man of another house, which mean she was dangerous to the house. Waiting the good moment, Vertuk sneak away from the camp.

Vertuk returned to Wroat, where was assigned his mother at that moment. When he tried to come into contact with her, he only learned that she had disappeared. He also heard his son was hunted down. Things had turn badly for Vertuk, so he decided to go into Sharn, using a new name, and hide into the large population and start to think how he could track down Landrec and find back his mother before his former House would kill him. That was much to think about for his simple mind.
