About Malcolm Cavendish
MALCOLM CAVENDISH CR 4
Smite Evil (3x/day): 1/3
Malcom was born into a Varisian merchant family in the town of Magnimar in Varisia. His parents business was always moderately successful even though they chose to live in a port town due to the caravans and ships that frequent the location. As a result, Malcolm was known and came to be known by most people in and around Magnimar.
As he grew to adulthood, Malcolm was equally touched by a desire for something beyond the weapon training and environment that dominated his youth. His family had always worshiped Abadar, as did many merchants. He was singled out at worship by the head priest in Magnimar due to his recognition of something extraordinarily devout about Malcolm. As a result, the priest took him under his wing for mentoring that expanded his theological approaches to life.
Malcolm was a quick study of the teachings of Abadar, and the priest saw in him the makings of a great warrior and enforcer of the law on behalf of the deity. The hopes of the protection of the faith in Magnimar and abroad would rest partially upon the shoulders of the young Paladin through his faith. His calling has led him now to Nirmathas to fight the evil that has bubbled to the surface. Walter Featherbone has hired Malcolm after a trip to Magnimar on business. The cartographer wanted the goodness and the sword of Malcolm to aid in the mapping exploits of teams dispatched from a small town called Fentonville where banditry has begun to run wild. Malcolm had received the calling, and now can feel the deity at his shoulder as he takes on his role as a Warrior of Holy Light for Abadar.
