Humble beginningsOur hero's story begins not at the beginning, but instead several years before the beginning: The beginning before the beginning of the beginning.
Born to two merchants whom were none too wealthy, Scarlett had grown up as many kids in his neighborhood had: playing with rocks and pebbles while his parents worked day and night to provide for their growing son. Wheloon was a prison city in the forested kingdom of Cormyr. Gritz and Hannha Scarlett, unfortunately, dealt with the wrong people. Soon after a deal went bad, young Scarlett found himself the adopted son of gang leader Farnazhof Hitatchi. Raised as a rogue, and trained in the art of merciless killing, Scarlett soon found himself able to kill five grown guards with a single gold piece.
In his mid-teens Scarlett began accompanying raiding parties and theiving from pockets and houses.
After making a name for himself on the streets, a rival gang sent six of their best soldiers to send him a message. Four were found dead, one was unconsious, and one is still unaccounted for. Scarlett himself took several swords through him, but was able to return to his father otherwise unscathed.
After some searching around, he found that the overzealous gang leader had skipped town and headed to a far off place known only as Neverwinter.
He set sail for riches, training, and vengeance, setting himself on a path he had never considered.
