Honeymooning in the region seemed like a good idea at the time. A love for romance, travel and the natural wonders of the world, be they volcano or open sea... brought Sam and his bride-to-be to Port Peril.
Samael Adroushan woke up in the shackles. He doesn't know the fate of his fiancee. But, he can imagine what would happen to a beauty like her all alone, with no one to fend for her... Inwardly he damns himself, while at the same time swearing to stay (voluntarily or otherwise) until he found out her fate... and either found her, or avenged her.
An Wizard of the School of Flame, has no place on the deck of a ship... or does he? This is the story of Samael Adroushan, or Sam... "The Accidental Pirate".
A classically trained mage, steeped in elven tradition... Sam grew fond of the Elven Curved Blade as it complimented his his graceful physique and fluid movements.
Progression - with the help of Magical Knack, will borrow from/dip into Ranger (Freebooter) for 2 levels at some point. 2-Handed fighting style, "Shield of Swings".
Sam may be a threat to a ship, but his value is in the tremendous weapon /ally he can be against other pirates.
This lends itself to becoming a mercenary of sorts. Easily filling the position of first mate.
