About Paellat 'Pae' Silvertongue
Paellat Silvertongue was born in his father's stall in the markets of Sothis. Paellat was raised in the Malhitu Bazaar, his father and mother were merchants, so he learned to gauge the value of items. He would sneak into the Antiquities Auctions. He became fascinated by the mystical objects which were pulled from the tombs of the Ancient Osirion.
Paellat was a rambunctious child, constantly on the move, even as a child, he fantasized about tomb-robbing, all his games revolved around it. As one of the few non-humans in the city, he was often mistaken for a child, and was constantly talking his way out of trouble. As a youth, he would sneak into the libraries and peruse the books, able to hide in small places, one of the advantages of being a halfling in a human city. When he was twelve he was caught, but again talked his way out of trouble, as he was able to link a story he'd heard, to the book he was reading. The scholar who caught him took him under his wing. Taught him to read Ancient Osirion, taught him about the ancient religions, and the cursed undead. He spent years under the tutelage of the Dwarven sage Merrigs Ironbook. He learned to restore books, becoming a book binder, restoring ancient texts as an illuminator. He grew bored of sitting in the library all the time, and ached for the exploration he had dreamed of as a child. Pae said his goodbyes, gathered his supplies, and the earnings he'd acquired from his toils in the library, bought some gear, and departed the library. He heard that the Pathfinder Society was looking for some brave adventurers in Katapesh, so he headed there, he applied, but did not have the weapons experience he needed, he watched those around him, the Katapeshi Whip masters with their scorpion whips,
