About Cedric Thistlewyne

As a child, Cedric was always getting into trouble of some sort. Like his parents before him, and most of the Nirmathi around him, there was a fiercely independent spirit within him that refused to accept rules as something that could be applied to him. Despite his frustrating escapades, his family was always kind in their correction. They preferred to explain how his actions hurt others rather than simply punish the boy without instruction to back it up. As a generally good-natured boy, it went a long way toward establishing a moral foundation based on empathy rather than fear.

But then, as so often happened during the summer in the Nesmian Plains, a raiding party of Molthuni monster-soldiers attacked their tiny farming community. Unlike most years, however, this time the little villiage didn't have as much forewarning as they needed. Both of Cedric's parents fell to the enemy while they were still in the process of setting fire to their home and their crops. This was devastating enough on its own, but it also meant that young Cedric was put into the care of his father's sister.

Where Cedric's parents used kindness and understanding to guide his behavior, his aunt preferred to use a switch. Every infraction, regardless of severity, always earned the same punishment. It began to nurture a seed of resentment in his soul, and he ran away as soon as he thought he had a chance of never coming back. He never expected to get very far, but his fircely independent nature saw him through until he reached the town of Phaendar. He'd never seen a town so big!

With no money, he resorted to stealing from others to get by. He wasn't very good at it, though, and was caught the first time he tried swiping a piece of fruit from a passing cart. The farmer grabbed him by the wrist to drag him along to the town sheriff, but was stopped by Phaendar's senior cleric of Erastil who happened to be coming the opposite direction and saw the whole thing.

The cleric paid for the fruit and took Cedric back to Erastil's lodge. Unlike his Cedric's aunt, the cleric wasn't interested in retribution, but rehabilitation. He took Cedric in, treated him like a son, and, with his help over time, the sprouting seed of bitterness was uprooted and replaced with a structure of community and respect built upon the foundation of empathy laid by his parents long ago.

Now Cedric is a full-fledged member of the church that saved him from a dark path. He enjoys doing what he can to help the community of Phaendar grow in spirit, population, and prosperity. When the troubles of frontier life cause injuries, he's usually there to heal the wounds. When his community is threatened, he picks up his spear and does his best to defend it as though everyone in town is his close family. He likes to fish in the river whenever he gets some time to himself, but his fiercely independent streak has never truly gone away. He does his best to hew closely to Erastil's teachings in all ways, but still struggles with order and law. He hopes that will change eventually, but has come to accept that personal growth, like any plant, requires constant attention and an eye for the future.
