Falkstross The Fallen Empire
The Hand of Vengeance
Born into poverty, Omar was determined to improve himself. To this goal, he learned early to mimic the manners of his social betters, and acquire a better education than usually offered to the poor. He used these tools to win employment as a footman in a genteel family, gradually advancing to butler, attaining a reputation for competence.
After a grave injustice which caused the death of his wife and daughter, he became a warlock to achieve vengeance. Now he adventures under an assumed name. Altho not sought by the law, his victims family knows he is responsible and would work vengeance upon him, if it were possible.
Altho confident in his anonymity, Omar knows there will one day be a confrontation. Even if they don’t find him, he plans to return to settle the issue. Hopefully, reason will prevail. But if not, he will be ready. To that end, he gathers knowledge, power, and comrades.
Personality: A calm, respectful, well mannered dignity is the hallmark of a good butler, and Omar projects this demeanor perfectly. In truth, it is not far from his true self, he need only hide the anger that wells up in him from time to time with the memory of his loss.
Despite his alignment, he is at heart a good man. His alignment stems from his act of revenge, and a serious ruthlessness towards his enemies, or those who earn his “vengeance”.
He is, in fact, dedicated to vengeance, and will not hesitate to spend his life to achieve it, if he finds the need sufficient. Vengeance is the reason for his existence, the driving force behind his pact, and his destiny, both before and after death.
