About Rory Ward

Rory was born on the 25th of Desnus, 4685 and is the bastard son of Lord Artois Sauvetere, one of the Nobels of Brevoy. All Rory knew growing up was that his mother was one of the personal servant for a noblewoman living in the castle and that his father had left his mother when he was still in the womb. As he grew up he befriended many of the other children living in the castle, including his half-sister Mireille, though neither knew the truth. As they grew older, the began to develop feelings for each other, something their father obviously strongly discouraged. However, it wasn't until the Lady found out the truth that Rory was forced to flee. At the cost of her own life, Rory's mother hide him away with a family friend of hers who took Rory out of the city. Rory spent the remainder of his youth learning the harsh life of those who live outside the castle walls. He took advantage of the life he came from though, the knowledge he gained left him fluent in various languages as well as aware of the proper protocol of social intercourse. He is a quick study and learned how to play various instruments and dances, perhaps his favorite being the lute. Despite all this, he holds a harsh resentment towards the noble class of Brevoy and seeks to surpass them any way he can. When he learned of the expedition to the Stolen Lands, he believed it to be his best chance at doing just that.

Upon Reaching the Stolen Lands, he immediately took charge diplomatically. He calmed Oleg and his wife, assuring them they would solve their problems and after defeating the initial group of bandits with the others and after clearing out the Thorn River Camp, came up with the plan to infiltrate the stag lord's fortress as new bandits delivering his alcohol. Seeing Akiros join them in their fight against the Stag Lord and speaking with him afterward, Rory vouches for him, believing he truly wishes to improve his life.

Aside from his involvement with the bandits, Rory also aided in the nearly bloodless end to the Mite/Kobold war after exposing Tartuk's plans, earning him the nickname "Scalefriend" from the Sootscales. Rory has gone most of his time through the Stolen Lands attempting to use his words before his blade and, when drawn into battle, rather spend it supporting his allies instead of dipping into combat himself.

Rory is a talk first type of person, relying on his mannerisms to delay or prevent combat as much as possible. He seeks out high ranking positions in the newly forming kingdom such as ruler, counceler, or grand diplomat.
