Next character: Daerius (Maxim)

Daerius has a barbarian background but Talastar has been subdued by the Lunars for a long time and it shows in Daerius, who looks more like a Lunar than a Sartarite.

Career and status:
Daerius is a freeman settler from Talastar, a former Sartar kingdom subdued by the Lunarese Empire.  There he made a living as a member of a group of mercenaries, working for the highest bidder.  This all ended when he was set up by his chief Vakthan, he got blamed for killing a clan ring member who tried to oppose the Lunar oppression.  His life now in danger, he emigrated to Pavis, still trying to make ends meet working as a mercenary, but business is slow.
On his travels and adventures he met a few good men (and a donkey) he trusts. One of them is a Kralorelan monk named Haru. They went on lots of adventures together. They looked death in the eye a few times, but they are still good friends. They have gotten separated but will meet again one day.

Daerius is a lay member of Orlanth, who has had trouble keeping in touch with his temple, because of the ban on Orlanth by the Lunars.  Daerius is a firm proponent of the Orlanth motto: Violence is always an option.  He must try and keep a low profile, lest someone recognises him and reports him to Lunar authorities.

Family and connections:
Because of what has happened to him he has lost contact with his family, who remained in Talastar. As far as he knows, he still has loving parents, an aunt and 2 nephews.  He would love to send them a message, but the Lunar government might very well be on the lookout for him.

Since his arrival in Pavis, Daerius has become good friends with Raiko Ingilli, a nephew of Tolkazzi of the powerful Ingilli family who has gotten in trouble and was cast out of the family by the Ingilli family head, Scharman.  Raiko has been a real friend to Daerius, and has helped him on several occasions, getting him jobs working as a guard for the riverfolk.  Because of this, Daerius has excellent contacts in the riverfolk society, and this is to their mutual advantage, since Daerius must be careful when among his own people: some believe the rumours about his past are true and want to see him punished.  Often, Daerius runs errands for Raiko.

Because of his increased notoriety among the riverfolk, Daerius has become quite popular with the local women: his barbarian looks and muscular build are quite different from the thin, sinewy riverfolk men.  Most of the time, all he gets are looks of appreciation, but one female, crazy Meg, has quite the crush on Daerius, and tends to follow him around, showing up at all the wrong moments, and making very clumsy passes in order to seduce the Talastarian fighter. 

Sadly enough crazy Meg did not get her name for nothing.  Ever since Daerius mildly rebuked her, she considers them to be destined for love everlasting, and she now follows our hero around whenever she can find him, harassing women he speaks with, and telling everybody they are blindly in love.
