About Amon Goethe
You see a clean-shaven young halfling with tousled black hair. His eyes are the color of coal, with slight swirls of gray. His skin is fair, and he bears the exaggerated nose and ears common to the kinfolk. He is dressed in the clothes of a common laborer, with a green collared shirt, dun pants, and sturdy leather boots. He is typical for a halfling, with a sturdy frame and lithe reflexes.
Amon is a conflicted soul. Despite his natural inclinations toward peace, love, and charity, he has spent a lifetime under the brutal jackboots of Cheliax. Witnessing countless incidents of cruelty and callousness, on top of the general enslavement of his people, have made him somewhat jaded. After all, there is little love spared for priests who do not worship Asmodeus in this infernal land, and Amon has learned that displaying his faith too openly may lead to more trouble than he can handle.
Amon was born a slave. This is unsurprising, considering the general condition of halflings in Cheliax. It was a family tradition, in fact - Amon was a slave, his father was a slave, and his father and his father before that. So it was a bittersweet moment for his parents the day he was born, for though he brought joy to their lives as only a child can, they knew in their hearts that the life they gave to him was not the one that they wished.
Once he could walk, Amon was set to work, laboring for the greater glory of House Henderthane. His master was a second-cousin-by-marriage of the House patriarch, possessed of the wealth necessary to be of the indolent rich. Long hours, numbing labor, and harsh punishments underscored a childhood filled with memories of two loving parents. Amon's healing talents were discovered at an early age, delighting his parents into thinking that he might become a favored slave, valued for his skill and expertise.
Unfortunately, that talent sealed his family's doom. With his master amassing gambling debts among the nobility of Egorian, he was forced to sell some of the House assets to pay his dues. Amon found himself at the age of nine winters in the flesh auction in the public square in Egorian, being sold to the highest bidder. The bidding was fierce, and when the dust settled, he found himself the property of a wealthy merchant from Westcrown.
Life in Westcrown was similar to that of Egorian, save the absence of his parents. Amon served the merchant for a dozen years, treated remarkably well in recognition of the value of his talents. Amon almost convinced himself that life in Westcrown wasn't that bad, all things considered. His luck changed, however, when his master was accused of heresy by a cleric of Asmodeus who coveted his riches. Arrested and dragged out of his home for a mock trial, he was executed in a flashy public display to distract from the motives of the cleric. In the resulting chaos, Amon grabbed what he could from the wealth of the house and ran into the streets, not quite certain where to go, but knowing that just about anything was preferable to worshipper of Asmodeus.
After several bewildering nights on the street, he stumbled into the back of a man while walking along the docks. Luckily for Amon, this happened to be an itinerant priest of Iomedae who was serving as a ship's surgeon on a frigate docked in the bay. He became intrigued by Amon's story, and insight from his god revealed that Amon's gifts came in fact from Iomedae. The old man taught Amon of the Bellflower Network, and soon Amon was taking refuge with the secretive organization, helping others like him escape from slavery.
