Claude Greymander III
Claude is an adventurer at heart.
In body, he is less than an imposing figure, and in mind, he is often
childlike. He is no simpleton despite his unkempt appearance and often
unexplained mannerisms. He is a person who believes there is more to
life than making a living and that there is always something better to do.
His life began in a normal middle class family
with his father running a fishing business. Early on, Claude realized
that his was not the life for him. Forced into working for the family
business, it wasn't long before he started looking for a way out.
Despite not liking the job, he has learned to be a competent sailor.
Growing up, his grandfather regaled him with
stories of his adventures. It was there early stories that would shape
the future for this would be adventurer. AS soon as he was able, he
began to apprentice for a gnomish alchemist in Port Talp. In between
fishing trips and the different seasons, he worked as much as he could
soaking up all that his master could teach him. He has a great vision
for these types of things, but often times lacks the common sense and
wherewithal to realize the danger that they pose. His enthusiasm for
the craft of Alchemy was not dampened in the least when an unfortunate
accident cost him two fingers.
Upon the death of his grandfather, he received
some of the equipment that his grandfather had used in his adventures.
It was at this point that he decided not to wait another day longer than he
already had to before he started his life of adventure. He collected
his equipment and started to prepare for whatever adventure came his way.
It was not long before he saw what he had been waiting for his whole life.
WANTED: Skilled, Brave, Adventurous...that was it and before the sun began
too rise on the next day, he was headed out with his trunk. A world of
possibilities had just opened up for him and he left his old life behind
with visions of something better dominating his thoughts.
