Abandoned at birth, Cavenn was passed around various orphanages until he was 6 years old and was taken in by Father Ezakien Tobyn in Sandpoint, who raised him until he was 13 years old. He proved he was just too unruly for the pious man to control and so he was sent to the Church of Desna in Magnimar, where Father Tobyn hoped the boy could be given more guidance. At the church, Cavenn followed the rules of the clergy by day, but his orc blood and fiery spirit kept him out doing reckless things at night. As he grew older, the church began utilizing him as a fixer, problem solver and sword for hire.
Cavenn took to his role with zeal and was generally well regarded by those at the church until he let a female priest of Asmodeus become his lover. Cavenn was able to keep their meetings a secret but became careless when his feelings became more intense. Once the clergy found out, they demanded he end the relationship or he would be excommunicated from the church. During an impassioned argument, Cavenn, in a rage, struck down one of the clergy, almost killing him in the process. Having lost his lover and his role in life, he left Magnimar behind and wandered for several years, taking jobs where he could find them and taking on the mantle of Cavenn the Black.
Cavenn has spent time learning to craft tatoos, trying to find out more about his orcish heritage and has even spent time in a small mercenary group. He still feels close to Desna and observes her rituals daily, and even though some may consider him a heretic, he knows that his journey has not ended. He has realized some of the best times of his life were when he was living in Sandpoint, the coastal city that sits on the Varisian Gulf and has decided to return there in hopes to reconnect his lost ties.
