Auron Garrowson was not born into luxury. He spent his childhood working the family farm and dreaming of battling monsters to become a hero. Some would say that he was the typical little boy who ran through the fields attacking the dragons that everyone else seemed to think were cows and goats.
His family and community were ruled over by the fair-handed Lord Brasen. While Auron’s parents never had any real contact with their lord, they always spoke very highly of him. The young boy would beg his father to hear the story of how Brasen’s ancestors had killed a coven of vampires and saved the city of Nance. Auron would soak in every detail in hopes that he too would someday become a hero.
When Auron finally grew into manhood, it was no surprise to his family and friends when he joined Lord Brasen’s manor guard. He was welcomed into the guard as a promising young recruit, if for nothing else then his size and strength.
Auron had not been in the service of Lord Brasen’s guard for long before the vampire attacked. Being ill-equiped to fend off the assault of the undead monster, Auron was barely able to save the young Lord Aldaric, whom he had formed a strong bond with. In a stroke pure dumb luck, Auron cut off the vampire’s arm with the sword of the fallen Lord Brasen before he made his escape with the young boy.
Fearing for the child’s safety and swearing revenge, Auron left the boy with a small order of clerics of Pelor many miles away from Nance. Unfortunately for Auron, his rage did not help him track down his quarry. When he returned to the manor, he found it razed to the ground. Even the nearby village seemed to had no idea that a vampire was even involved in the attack.
For the next 2 years, Auron searched in vain for the monster he had maimed, but to no avail. Feeling like a failure for allowing Lord Brasen and his family to die at the hands of an undead horror, Auron gave up his search and settled into a town guard position in the city of Beregost. There, Auron spent 8 years living day to day, and spending most nights in the bottom of a mug of ale.
A few months ago, Auron overheard rumors vampire minons speaking of their “one-armed master.” Although his previous attempt had failed, he hungered for redemption and set out on his quest of vengence once again. His time spent wallowing in self pity had not helped to sharpen his combat abilities, however. Had the newly named Lord Braska not saved Auron from a battle with a vampire minion, he would have died before his mission was complete.
Reunited with the only other survivor of Keep Ettier, Auron and Braska returned to their home town in search of clues.
