Corso is a tall man in his early twenties. Lean, muscular and fair, he carries himself in a proud way, a flash of defiance in his grey-black eyes. His skin is tan and shows the subtle signs of numerous fights. He keeps his skull free of hair, yet wears a black beard in the style of the Chelaxian young nobles.

He favours dark brown tunics of leather or thick wool, cut at the shoulder to allow fluid movements, under which he wears ample white shirts, worn to the neck, with a "cravate" of white silk. Over these, a fine dark cape sporting sinuous strands of silver-green, a treasured gift of his elven master, protects him from the weather and hides his dueling sword. He favours strong coffee and smooth leathery tobacco, but shuns alcohol.

Corso speaks loudly and with assurance, even when he doesn’t know, or when he knows he’s wrong. He is defiance and pride, charm and impulse, strength and power, wrapped in a character that never worries about what tomorrow will bring.

Born of a minor noble house, Corso lived an easy and careless youth, in the East Shore district of Korvosa, until he accidentally injured severely his friend Kevan Bromathan during a drunken duel, taking the lad’s ear off with his bare hands. His father tried as best he could to manage the relationship with the powerful Bromathan family, but eventually decided it would be best to send his son on a long trip, far away from Korvosa.

For many years, Corso traveled Avistan, discovering the world, its wonders and perils. In Razmiran, under the tutelage of the high priest Karzham, he studied the arts of oratory and logic, spending hours shouting in front of the crashing waves on the shores of the formidable Lake Encarthan. In Taldor, at the foot of the Fog Peaks, he studied under Del Federico the way of the open hand and how to expand martial prowesses beyond mere training by improvising with whatever is at hand. He even spent some time in Isam, capital of Galt, where Flana Fondel took him as her lover, showing him, the ways of manipulating the heart, the basis of overthrowing a government and how to harness the power of the mob. Finally, he studied in Almas, the Aldoran capital, where his world was shattered by the liberal teachings of the gnomish philosopher Codoroso.

For all his travels and his want for more, it was his failing relationship with an Aldoran priestess of Desna that led to his realization that it was time to come back. His heart longed for his beloved family and for his beloved city. However, upon his arrival, his father made it clear he did not approve of his son’s return. It was still too early, he said. Corso’s youngest sister Djana was promised to Federos Bormathan and the wedding was but months away. Corso’s return would likely endanger the fragile peace between the families. Meanwhile, Corso had fallen for Losinja Andeis, a pharasmin novice and friend of his sister. He now had no intention to leave. Instead, he promised he would seek Kevan and make peace with him.

As luck would have it, Kevan had been accused of murder. Corso discovered that the key witness, a fisherman, had lied, on orders from some street boss named Lamm. What better way to get back in his old friend’s grace, make his sister and father happy, and earn his welcome in Korvosa, along some unavoidable fame, of course!
