Persona History:

I never knew my birth parents. They were taken by the Roman Occupation. I was told my now brother Maelchon map Vipogwench saved me and took me to his Tribe called the Cornovii. He taught me how to fight and hunt. I was raised by Mavie our Druid and her husband Breckuu the Satirist of our Tribe. I earned my torc from my Chieftain Oegus and his wife Eillish. I shortly left my Tribe to strike out on my own . I came across a Vandal that was being held captive by the Romans. I aided in his escape; his name is Pyke. He and I made our escape and he played Tablero and won a ship. Her name is the ESR Harogoth and I became his first mate. We sailed and collected a crew as well as treasure but alas, fate had made us go a shore and we never sailed again. Leaving to find my way again I came to Namron and joined another ship - this time as the Quarter Master - but alas this was only a hold over as I set out again to find my own way but not alone.
