Orsino was raised in poverty and was often the survivor of hunger and an insane mother. Now Orsino is on the path to becoming a true Lotusmaster, now Orsino is gaining a measure of control over his life and he deeply desires to become one of those powerful Lotusmasters who reclines on a couch in a perfumed estate with servants tending to his every whim while the rich and powerful seek his guidance and favor. To this end Orsino is a devoted aspiring Lotusmaster who with religious zeal studies the Lotus Flower in all of it's wonderous and lethal varieties. Orsino will be powerful, he will be respected and all of Brevoy will whisper his name in fear.

Born to a human whore Orsino Fjordson (the name of bastards in parts of Brevoy) experienced a harsh upbringing. His mother was constantly drunk and prone to lashing out at him, he barely evaded getting killed several times by knives and other projectiles. To this end Orsino grew up as a wary individual who was prone to liking the things children normally did. Instead he voraciously read every single book he could get his hands on, he then discovered an old, battered copy of the Lotus. The book itself described the ways of the Lotusmasters, a sect of strange "alchemists" (more like mystics) who had mastered the mysterious Lotus Flowers. The term Lotus is actully an umbrella term for hundreds of different flowers that grow across the world. The book itself detailed the mundane properities of the Lotus flowers, for the more legendary uses of the Lotus Flower the book said to find an actual Lotusmaster. So Orsino did at the age of fourteen he fled his abusive mother and made his way across brevoy until he found one of these reclusive masters. Orsino never learned the man's name but the master did teach him the way of the Lotusmaster. The Lotusmaster was far more then a mere alchemist, the tradition had started eight thousand years ago in Tian Xia before the of so called "alchemists" even came about in the western lands.

The Lotusmaster is a consummate mystic who understands the true power of the Lotus Flower in all of it's infinate varieties. A Lotus Master can using the Lotus create terrifying poisons that have no antidote, he can make his very touch poisonous and he can even learn the secret of eternal youth. These and more are secrets that only the reclusive and feared Lotusmasters understand, they laugh silently as the "alchemists" of the west fumble in ignorance. While the "alchemist" is not trusted by most the Lotusmaster is truly feared, wild stories abound of their terrifying abilities and almost supernatural awareness. The Lotusmaster's tend to exploit this to their advantage, more then one Lotusmaster has simply used his very presence to inspire fear in his enemies. Indeed many Lotusmasters go on to achieve great things and attain great power, they rarely rule countries (at least officially) but they do tend to become exceptionally wealthy and influentul when they set their minds to it. Now Orsino sets off to gain the power he craves, long did he live a life of poverty and now he will live a life of wealth and power.
