About Lars the Crusader

Lars grew up in Kalsgard, son of a tavern owner. He wan't overly smart, but generally had a goodly bit of common sense which kept him out of trouble. He would work around the tavern cleaning up and doing some serving. He didn't really aspire to anything much beyond taking over the tavern once his father retired from the business. He did serve in the local militia, since the border with Irrisen was always a cause for concern. As he did work in a tavern, he was nowhere near a teetotaler, though not really the town drunk either.

One evening a roving priest of Pekko stopped by the tavern and wove a hell of a tale of the exploits the god and the work of his roving priests and other followers. The tales of derring do, and heroics on behalf of the oppressed and enslaved fired up Lars' imagination. He was hooked and immediately sought out a temple of the new god and offered himself up for training. His large size and strength led them to train him towards a more martial bent (not to mention not being mentally gifted). After some time spent training, he struck out as a crusader in service to his god.

However he got a bit more into the cups in service to the drunken god, and his crusades have never managed to coordinate well with any large formal efforts. Thus he has meandered all over the Inner Sea region righting wrongs, freeing slaves, and carrying out the good works of his god. Of course he was also rather potted most of the time, so it was heavy on the meandering.

Eventually he found himself with a caravan traveling the coast road in Garundi. He's still not quite fully sure how he got talked into making this trip, but he is sure his faith in Pekko will see him through no matter where he ends up.
