About Tain Hekkanen
◆= 1 Action, ◆◆= 2 Action Activity, ◆◆◆= 3 Action Activity
Like many youths in the Shingles, there are few ways to make coin that don't skirt the grey shades of legality that come with living with few opportunities. Tain was luckier than most, having a fairly solid home life with a father and stepmother and three younger half-siblings to care for. Tain's father had a steady job as a carpenter, and although gruff was sensible and caring after his own fashion. Tain's stepmother - younger than her husband and mother to Tain's siblings - made a passable living as a seamstress making "faux-Varisian" style fashion for the city's nouveau-riche.
Tain spent his childhood getting into and out of various pranks, scrapes and adventures, but as he hit his teens his father found him work. Unfortunately Tain's imposing size and lack of any particular skill made him very suitable as an enforcer for the Cerulean Society and his easy going demeanour belied his aptitude for ending violent encounters quickly and on his own terms. His parents tried to assist him in navigating this shadowy world, but he actually did well enough through having a nose for trouble and a head for business, as long as that business involved someone else lying on the ground.
Making friends of his peers, Tain ran with a young lass name Arkara, and the two were well matched both physically and by demeanour. They looked after each other, had each other's backs and aided one another in staying sober, cool-headed and wary of the ever-resent pitfalls of their profession. Sadly, Arkara was framed for a murder, made all the more easy as Tain and Arkara were in the area conducting business on the fateful night.
The case was brought before Zenobia "the Hanging Judge" Zenderholm, and Arkara was hanged. Distraught, Tain floundered in drink, and in his despair made a few enemies and...not exactly choice decisions... leading to his expulsion from the Society. However, some time after his exile, one of his associates that he hadn't insulted or derided passed on some information. Information that implicated foul old Gaedren Lamm, a man Tain has had his own run ins with and whose clutches Arkara had escaped as a teenager, possibly to her own peril.
Now sober and determined, Tain plots his revenge. His days as an enforcer have taught him to study his mark, take his time and strike when the conditions are favourable.
