Character Information Edit

Background Edit

Vander had no father growing up. His father left his mother while Vander was still an infant, and she wound up falling in with a religious sect. They had a good reputation in the area, and it seemed like an ideal place for her to go, where she would have plenty of support in raising her child and taking care of them both. It was not until later that she learned the true horror of the predicament she had created for herself and her son. The religious 'sect' was in truth a cult dedicated to the worship of the the Keeper. They were devoted to Death, and routinely performed human sacrifices. By the time she learned of this, it was already too late. Members were not allowed to simply walk away. For the safety of her son, she determined to attempt to escape with him anyway. Vander was ten when his mother decided the time had come.

They snuck away in the dead of night, and for a time it appeared the escape was successful, but they were set upon in the middle of the night, two nights after leaving. They had enough warning from the noise of their hunter's arrival for Vander's mother to hide him away so he would not be found. She warned him to stay silent, no matter what happened. She attempted to fight, but was quickly subdued by the men who were sent to retrieve her, and was tied onto a horseback to be dragged back to the compound. Vander heard the men talking and laughing as they retreated, but the only two words he could make out just before they got out of earshot were "next sacrifice". Vander spent the rest of the night, as well as the entire next day and night, huddled in his hiding place crying silently to himself, hoping in vain that his mother would somehow escape and return to him.

When she had not come back by the second morning, he finally struck out on his own. He made his way back to the road and, not knowing where he was going, picked a direction and started walking. As he stumbled along the road two days later, almost ready to pass out from lack of food and water, he came across an elderly monk. The monk took in Vander's state and quickly offered him some water as well as some bread and dried meat. He asked the boy where his parents were. After hearing that he didn't know his father and his mother was dead, the monk offered to take Vander back to his monastery. Having nowhere else to go, Vander agreed, and they continued on. When they arrived at the monastery, Vander was informed that he was welcome to stay there, and would be given a chamber, but he would be expected to work, as was everyone at the monastery.

He was given basic jobs at first, cleaning and carrying, etc. He soon learned that the monks at the monastery were adherents to the Traveler. For the next eight years Vander remained at the monastery, training in the ways of the monks and the Traveler. He learned to make use of all of his senses, to read others in order to determine the truth of their words, and the ways of combat and stealth. On his eighteenth birthday, Vander decided it was time to leave the monastery. He wanted to avenge his mother's death, and felt that he was now ready. He began to make preparations to leave. After some days of traveling, he made his way back to the compound he remembered and insinuated his way back into the cult.

No one recognized him after the many years he had been gone. In the months after Vander’s arrival, others of the cultists began to die. There was nothing suspicious about the deaths, they always appeared natural. One fell down the stairs and broke his neck, another was crossing an old bridge when the ropes gave way, leaving him to fall to his death. Over the next few years, Vander slowly thinned out the ranks of the cult, always killing one at a time, and always making the deaths appear natural. Finally, he decided the time had come to end it. He waited until the middle of the night and began the grisly work of slaughtering the remaining cultists. He moved from chamber to chamber, slitting their throats as they slept.

Unfortunately not everyone was asleep, and some of the deaths were discovered. The alarm was raised, and while Vander was able to avoid suspicion and was not caught, the remaining cultists were terrified and decided the compound was no longer safe. They fled the compound and scattered, bringing an end to the cult, but not to Vander’s task. He spent the next several years hunting down the scattered cultists, as well as taking the occasional side job in between, until only two remained, the leader and his right hand man. In all the time he had been searching, he had never found any trace of those two, until just recently, when he learned that a man fitting the description of the leader’s second had been seen recently in Sharn, so he made his way there to continue his search. Unfortunately, by the time Vander reached the city, he could find no trace of the man, nor any clues of where he had gone. Unsure what to do next, he made his way into the Tower's Shard, having heard that it was a good place to go when looking for work.
