Rauno’s childhood was brutal. He grew up in a Varisian nomadic caravan where he was bullied constantly by the other children in their caravan. While he was never a strong child, he grew to be tough and nimble as he avoided and tolerated the endless bullying.
The source of the torment was his parent’s stance on the Sczarni. His parents, both brilliant wizards of modest power, opposed the influence of the powerful criminal element in their caravan. Eventually, the pressure on the family was so intense that they left the caravan, staking out on their own. But that wasn’t enough for the Sczarni, who couldn’t leave such a slight unanswered.
It was several months later in the middle of the night when the attack came. His mother and father fought back with all of their arcane might, but it was clear they could not succeed. Rauno’s older sister shoved a satchel into Rauno’s hands and thrust him into the darkness. “Run!” she cried “ and don’t look back!” Terrified, the boy ran into the night. The next thing he remembered, it was morning and he was still wandering. He came across the farms outlying a small town. The satchel that his sister had given him contained his spell book and some modest supplies. It was all he had left of his time with his family.
As he came into town, he drew the attention of several residents, who took him in, fed him and gave him shelter. From then, he became a resident of the town, growing up into an amazingly brilliant young man. The townsfolk found that he was not only literate, but that he had some modest arcane ability. As he matured, he found ways to be useful in the town. He works as a scribe, a translator, an attorney and a sage.
Rauno feels that he owes his life to the townsfolk, and would do what he could to see to their general welfare and safety.
Rauno believes that the Sczarni may still have it out for him, so he keeps that same satchel loaded and ready in case he needs to snatch it up and run.
Rauno has the olive skin, dark eyes and dark hair common among the Varisian people, though his hair is starting to show premature streaks of silver. He dresses in clean, pressed, scholarly robes that one would expect of someone who makes a living like he does. He carries himself with confidence and is generally friendly and open to meeting new people. He reacts harshly to bullies and is likely to gravitate toward others who have experienced loss in their family or who have had to start their lives over from nothing.
