Marnarius has always been equal shares bully, opportunist, and restless explorer. In his teenage years, he ran away from his parents in Corentyn and hired on with an Aspis-owned ship. Over the years, he learned the Consortium’s finer arts of trickery, sabotage, and subtlety, and by the age of 22 he had earned full membership and his bronze badge. His first assignment as a full member took him across the world to Tian Xia, where he played a supporting role in the Consortium’s bid to win the prestigious Ruby Phoenix Tournament. When the Pathfinder Society stole both the victory and the Hao Jin Tapestry, Marnarius and his crew returned to Varisia to help spearhead a new initiative: entering the Hao Jin Tapestry demiplane through a backdoor created by the Aspis Consortium’s newest allies.

At first, everything went well. The creatures living in the demiplane were timid and superstitious, and the treasures they guarded were more extraordinary than anything Marnarius had ever seen. However, during his sixth trip into the demiplane, the Pathfinder Society attacked the backdoor and took control of it, trapping the Chelish explorer and his companions inside. Together, the lost Aspis team established a temporary base of operations, avoided the Society’s scouts, and began negotiating with the local communities that the sorceress Hao Jin had collected from across the world. From these people’s perspective, humanoid invaders were raiding their settlements, taking what they wanted, and disappearing into thin air, and Marnarius stoked this narrative with tales of the Society’s evil in his home world.

The rugged survivor has several close comrades who are still trapped in the Hao Jin Tapestry demiplane. Chief among these is Wolona, a Garundi operative who is Marnarius’s second in command and the leader of the Aspis Consortium’s mission in the demiplane while he attacks the Grand Lodge. She’s one of the few people that commands Marnarius’s respect and whom he would never cast aside in the name of revenge against the Society. After all, several of her many scars are ones she earned while guarding his back—in one case even taking a lizardfolk javelin in the shoulder when it was aimed at his head.

Two months ago, one of his team members uncovered a device capable of sending a magical missive, and they used it to contact the Aspis Consortium on the Material Plane. Less than a month ago, a Consortium team successfully helped Marnarius slip out through the heavily guarded gateway to the demiplane. Now at long last, his chance for revenge against the Society that imprisoned him is only hours away.
