Background:
Born the nephew of Dame Sarrona Lebeda, Borden was raised in the city of Silverhall, where his father was an administrator for one of the various merchant lanes that converged onto the city. As such, from an early age, Borden was exposed to the intricacies of the merchant's life and apprenticed under his father when he was old enough to track shipments and balance accounts. His family being devout worshipers of Abadar, Borden took to worshiping the Master of the First Vault as well. As Borden grew however, he became tired of simply tracking shipments and maintaining accounts. That and he saw his actions as continuing the legacy established by his grandfather and the more powerful families of House Lebeda. Instead, Borden wanted to forge his own name and leave a mark that would show that Dame Sarrona and her children weren't the only capable Lebedas in history. The combination of divine intervention and political machination would soon offer the boy the young man that chance.

One day, while praying at the local church to Abadar, Borden was pulled into his own mind and opened his eyes to find himself in what could only be the First Vault. Gazing in wonder at the perfect originals of all the items created by man in his search for civilization, he suddenly bowed deeply in reverence as an Orsheval appeared before him. Commanding him to rise, the horse-like servitor of Abadar suddenly spoke, saying "The Gold Fist wishes to convey a message upon you. In the future, a chance to spread civilization and establish new trade routes will present itself. Should you be of proper devotion to the Master of the First Vault at that time, then this great opportunity will be yours." With that, the world around him vanished and he found himself once more in the administrative looking hall of the church. From that day on, Borden devoted himself to Abadar's cause, searching out texts that extolled his virtues while at the same time, continuing in his responsibilities as an administrator of the river route through the city.

After many years of continued focus on his work and religious study, Borden discovered the opportunity that the servitor of Abadar had mentioned. The Swordlords had sent messengers throughout Brevoy seeking adventurous souls willing to explore the Stolen Lands south of Restov. Though his expertise was in logistics and not with the sword, Borden packed up what he would need and headed to Restov to accept the Charter and hopefully make a name for himself as spread the word of Abadar's teachings.

Personality:
Raised as a merchant and now a true believer in Abadar's tenets, Borden is practical minded and always conscious of the impact his actions have on commerce and civilization. An advocate for the benefits of civilization, he can at times be short with those who hold firmly to the belief that the benefits of nature outweigh that of man-made society. Living in a place like Brevoy, with many people in smaller communities venerating Erastil, Borden has learned patience when talking with those who favor community over law and commerce. Though he holds a deep love and respect for his family, he refuses to let his noble blood dictate his life. He is willing to help those in need, so long as that help doesn't violate the law.

Description:
Decked out in a fine coat embossed with the goose and rising sun symbol of House Lebeda and reinforced with armor plates, Borden's slim form betrays his lack of combat experience. However, his stride is relatively smooth, suggesting a natural dexterity which is supported by the fact that his only wields a light crossbow in his hands. Hanging from his leather belt is a sheathed dagger and a case of white-fletched crossbow bolts. Around his neck is a large golden key that marks him as a follower of Abadar and pants of light brown leather with a shirt of white linen, trimmed in golden colored cloth is worn under his coat.
