Corso is a tall man in his early twenties. Lean and fair, he carries himself in a proud way, a flash of defiance in his slanted grey-black eyes, a tell-tale sign of some Varisian blood in his lineage. His skin is tanned and shows the subtle signs of numerous fights and long days in the sun. He keeps the top of his skull free of hair and wears a pony tail and beard in the style of the Chelish bravos.

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 former lover, protects him from the weather and hides his duelling sword. He favours strong coffee and smooth leathery tobacco, but shuns alcohol.

A still rapier is all but useless without thrust; its only fate is to rust.

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. His father, Falko Gaczi, 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 Kyonin, the elven master Daolia taught him the arts of remaining unseen and of the silent and swift kill. There he also witnessed the power of the ideal, the rebirth of a once proud nation. In Taldor, at the foot of the Fog Peaks, he studied under Del Federico the subtleties of royal politics and court intrigues, and how nations grow and break. 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.

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, for his beloved city.

But the recent upheaval and its accompanying martial law prevented him from entering the city. Rumours of plague, riots, and quarantines reached his ears and he managed to get words across the walls to his family. According to his sister Djana, his father was now in prison for trying to smuggle goods into the city, which was obviously impossible! The rest of the family had to keep to their house, as venturing outside, between mob, plague, and grey maidens, had become perilous at best.
