Character Information Edit

Background Edit

Baracus was born in the Lhazaar Principalities, in Port Krez, still known as one of the true pirate havens of the Principalities, a violent and vice-riddled town. Baracus was the youngest son of a family of twelve children. His father left when he was young, his mother forced to raise them all with the only way she could. His older brothers always encouraged Baracus to make sure he was big, helping him lift weights to build up his body to survive. As he grew up, Baracus fell in with his brothers and they joined a group called the Cloudreavers, a blend of orcs, dwarves, and half-orcs, but his family was so tough that they fit in with the motley crew. Even during the height of Galifar's power this group never gave up their acts of piracy, which cost them during the years. Baracus and his family helped to restore some of their lost power, the strong men were prone to violence and acts of savagery. For over five to six years they sailed the waters and even raided some of the coastal cities nearly to Breland. On a particularly daring raid they assaulted the Brelish shipping lane to Stormreach, their ship made a fatal error and fell into a trap, a privateer disguised as a merchant vessel was waiting for them and the battle was ferocious. The pirates were victorious, but it wasn't without cost, as Baracus' four older brothers died during the battle.

Once they returned to the Port, Baracus' mother nearly died from the grief, she threw out Baracus and blamed the whole issue on him. Baracus moved to The Pirate Exchange in Regalport, having lost all stomach for the life that he'd been living after his loss. It was hard living as he was working as a bouncer for a rough and tumble bar, but he was happier than he was before. He eventually came to the attention of a wealthy patron, Mavar, who hired him as a personal guard. After a year working for the merchant, Baracus began to amass a decent amount of wealth, having picked up some enchanted armor and bracers.

Then things turned for the worse. Baracus went to check on Mavar after he heard a muffled cry and what sounded like a chair falling over. When he burst into the room, the merchant was lying on the ground, with a cloaked figure leaping through the window, taunting behind him "The Cloudreavers don't let anyone walk away Baracus....remember that" as he disappears into the night. Suddenly, a trio of the watch burst in and saw Baracus and the dead body of the merchant. They went to place him under arrest, but with his blood boiling the brawler wasn't going to be taken away, especially as he figured these guys were in on it too, it was too convenient they showed up as quickly as they did. Baracus managed to fight his way out of the room, knocking two of them unconscious, breaking the others nose and leaving him clutching at the blood pouring out.

He fled the Principalites, anxious to get away from the pirates reach for now, but he planned to return as soon as he was able.
