About Abbas Garshta
At 6 feet, 180 pounds (183 cm, 82 kg), Abbas is taller and larger than the average resident of Magnimar. He is wearing chainmail, with a scimitar at his hip, and a shield, backpack and light crossbow on his back, under a cloak. Even though he is a mature adult, he has allowed his hair and beard to grow, and as it is un-naturally early white, he looks gives the impression that he is much older and wiser, which serves him well when dealing with folks as he is usually under estimated.
Born and raised on the streets of Absalom, Abbas never knew his real name of his family. Even though just a street urchin, he managed to sneak into many of the libraries, especially the libraries of the various gods, where he learned many things. One day, when he again was caught in the library, he, as usual, managed to talk his way out of being in trouble, but before he was told to leave, a senior acolyte of the temple, Sarenrae as it happens, intervened with the guard who was escorting him out.
"I see you have been caught again" the acolyte named Jared said to him. "What is your name?"
As his eyes are now shining, he nods his head and says emphatically "Yes"
Saying his new name over and over again, Abbas nods his agreement and then as Jared instructed the guard, he is taken to a small room that houses other first year students, and is shown a mattress and blanket as well as a small chest for his things.
Over the years Abbas grew physically to be the man he is today, as well as gaining much knowledge about the lands however even after taking his priestly vows, he remained in the Temple of Sarenrae in Absalom, rather than going out on the road. When he reached his 30th birthday, his initial instructor, Jared, now a senior priest of the Temple called him in to speak with him.
"Abbas, I have a mission for you. It is well past time that you left the Temple and went into the world, putting your knowledge and devotion to work for the betterment of Golorian. Now, I know that this is not what you really wish, but we have decided that you will go to Magnimar and report to Pathfinder Captain Sheila Heidmarch. She has called for new Pathfinders for a mission, and you would be a good fit. Gather what equipment you need from the Temple armory, pray to Sarenrae for your spells, and head to the docks where a ship will take you to Magnimar in the morning."
Although quite nervous, and a little scared as he had spent almost twenty years in the Temple, Abbas gathered his equipment, stayed up all night praying and headed to the docks in the morning, where boarding a ship named Dolphin, he undertook the journey to Magnimar. Some time later, when he arrived, he was given directions to the Heidmarch Manor and headed there directly.
