Mikos was once a Son of Brevoy, born and raised in Restov. He eagerly joined the guard at a young age and proved such an able combatant that he was accepted into the famed Aldori dueling school. Young, ambitious, and brash though, his rising star quickly fell. First, by drawing the ire of his superiors, then an expedition to the Stolen Lands which fell apart due to fractious infighting, finally joining the Crusade only to be robbed of his prized Aldori blade on the dangerous West Sellen route.
Thrice burned, he doesn't believe in anything now except strong ale and easy pickings.
