This is the character backstory for upcoming D&D adventures. Sabin is a human fighter with a swordfighting leaning.
Sabin de Lasartesse was born to a family of great importance. Or rather, it had been a family of great importance. As generations had passed the family had been slowly stripped of title and wealth. While still well off, the __ clan was far from its glory days.
Still, Gene de Lasartesse was able to to teach his five sons the family tradition of sword fighting. Thrown in duel after duel with his brothers, Sabin was forced to either excel in his training or suffer humiliating defeat. This high pressure training worked and soon he was matching his brothers’ skills with the blade. Even though they competed against one another everyday the brothers grew close.
So it was that Noah de Lasartesse got into a dispute with a neighbor and when words failed to satisfy they drew blades and dueled. Noah fell to the neighbor’s blade and an enraged Sabin stepped in to avenge his brother. Sabin struck a fatal blow, sending his enemy to his death. However, Sabin had broken the local law and was forced to flee.
His only hope is to achieve such success that he raises his family’s status back to where it belongs. With his home at his back he looks for that one golden opportunity. If he helps people along the way, all the better.
