About Mason Szerencse

Mason has been on the road since he was a toddler. It could have something to do with his parents being on the run from...something...they never told him about. Eventually, they decided it would be best if he stayed at the temple of Desna they chanced upon. Mason spent the rest of his childhood there, but yearned to find his parents. The priests encouraged him to travel and tried to discourage his tendency to grab anything that wasn't nailed down. He stayed long enough to learn some of their teachings, but he never truly got the notion of private property. Thus, after he left and made his way to Korvosa, he ran afoul of the law. He was given the choice of applying his talents to solving a child's disappearance or going to jail. Naturally, he wouldn't stand for imprisonment, and besides maybe he could find something out about his parents from the the Korvosan Watch.

Appearance and personality:
Mason stands at an even 6 feet tall, and is slightly underweight. He has a "rugged" look about him, thanks to years of travelling. He is very easy-going, and really only gets upset when he sees tyranny in any form. One quirk that may get him in trouble is his tendency to grab small unattended items from homes, shops, and anywhere else that such things would be regarded as theft.

Trained skills:
Acrobatics +7, Appraise +5, Bluff +5, Diplomacy +5, Disable Device +7, Escape Artist +8, Heal +8, Perception +7, Sense Motive +7, Sleight of Hand +10, Stealth +9

Feared things:
Being slowed, Hellknights, rats

Loved things:
Parents (or at least the notion of being reunited with them), "Lucky" copper piece.

Embarrassing thing:
Mason has gone completely bald already. It's why he wears the hat.

Most proud thing:
While in Oppara, thwarted the assassination of a minor noble (completely by accident, but who's counting).

Secret thing:
Mason feels responsible for the death of a shopkeeper who pursued him after Mason lifted a trinket from the shop. The shopkeeper was a couple of steps too slow and was trampled by Hellknight-ridden horses, which Mason had narrowly avoided. To this day, Mason makes small anonymous donations to the shopkeeper's family.
