-As a child (6 years old) Abbadon was taken from his tribe by a rougue group of Northerners. They took him to serve them as a slave. However Abbadon differt from the rest of the slaves in strenght and willingness to fight. Because of these special traids he was adopted by one of the most noble Northeners.
He was trained to become an elite warrior.
However at the age of 14 he was taken from his new home as well. Only this time he was taken by Korsians. In Korsia he served as a house slave and he learned how to read and write. At the age of 18 he got in to a fight with one of his guards, because he (the guard) was raping a female house slave. After this fight his Korsian Master realized how good Abbadon could fight and he decided to take him with him on his business ventures as his personal guard. On these business ventures Abbadon learned a lot and saw a lot of different places all over the continent. 3 Years later when he was 21 years old, he saw one of the guards whip a female shari slave because she stole some bread. Although Abbadon had been whipped himself a lot, seeing this infuriated him so much that he slit the guards throat and was soon knocked to the ground by another guard. Abbadon was punished severly for this. He was dunked in boiling water as a punishment and therefore has scars all over his body and espacially on his face.
Because his master didn´t trust him anymore he was sold to a Mining company. On his way there he overwhelmed the guards who were transporting him and escaped.
About a year later he arrived in the tribal village of his birth, only to find out that the Northeners who took him from there all those years ago had plundered and burned the village to the ground. Now at the age of 28 Abbadon is a man without an identity. He has made a name for himself in the onderworld for doing everything for some coin.

Abbadon wears a mix of korsian and traditionel shari clothes. He is a very controlled person but completely escelates when someone abuses women. He is a skilled fighter and also a good business man. Abbadon hates northeners and people who own slaves. What makes him special is the fact that he doesn´t belong to any nation and is a melting pot of different traits and cultures.


Section 4/4 - Open-ended questions
Please answer at least three of the questions to show how your character would interact with the world. Delete the spares (if applicable). Please include at least one paragraph for each question you answer.

Question 1

You stumble outside into the open air after some heavy drinking in an Oserian tavern. Just before you're about to pass an alleyway, a hooded man rushes out of it and runs for it - seemingly, he has both a blade and some jewellery on him. You take a quick peek in the alleyway to see a feminine figure collapsed on the ground, holding her hands over a bleeding wound in her torso. The thief is about to escape and the woman seems in critical condition. You...

-...would run after the thief to make sure he doesn´t escape. After I would have caught the thief I would kill him and run back to help the woman and get help if possible.

Question 2

You are on your way to the Korsian city of Telth to sell some wares. Upon reaching the front gates you are stopped by the guard. They deny you entry for the time being as the traffic into the city is too high. You are effectively forced to wait in the refugee camp located between the two gates for the time being. The camp is
filled with shopping stalls and refugees sleeping on the floor. How do you spend your time in the camp?

-I will look for some warriors to spar with to and would afterwords seek an abandoned part of the camp to sleep alone with my dagger under my pillow.

Question 3

You've gotten lost and wandered awhile into Drahl lands, eventually finding yourself in Crookmire Swamp, where you decide to settle for the night. Finding a meal to buy for the evening takes some effort, but you do come across an old crone in ragged clothing, who offers to sell you some sea-looking food. She doesn't ask much, but warns you that eating it is 'unpleasant' to outsiders. You...

-...would carry on the search because I don´t want to depend on anyone.

Question 4

In the midst of battle, you find yourself approaching a wounded enemy soldier. The soldier is on the floor, clearly in terror as they cradle one of the dead. Enemy forces begin to advance in the distance and you know you have to act fast. The soldier then grasps at a cloth and removes it from the dead soldiers pocket. They continue to cry, and starts calling the dead soldier's name in despair. Then the soldier glances up to see you - with your weapon up - but does not care of your approach, continuing to cradle the dead soldier. You…

-...would let him live out of mercy. Because I´m only here for the money not to put people out of their misery.

Question 5

You have wandered across a seemingly endless tundra for what have felt like days. A raging snowstorm makes you unable to see more than a few metres ahead. Being almost out of resources, you are delighted to find out that you have stumbled your way to a village. Upon closer inspection you find out it's a Northern village, and the residents are not very friendly towards strangers. What do you do in this dire situation?

-I would try to hide my disgust for Northeners and speak to them in the northern dialect to show them that I´m not a total stranger. I would fill up my resources and get out of there as soon as possible.
