A Troubled Economy
A charming half-elf failrogue
Before you stands a half-elf of average height, his short tousled brown hair as playful as his green eyes are charming, nestled under his lower lip resides a small patch of brown hair. On each hip is a short blade, one very fine in quality, the other is plain and grey. He’s clad in dull brown leather and has a simple grey cloak draped over his shoulders, fastened with the unmistakable moon and harp clasp, common for an agent of his order.
A Charming Half-Elf Rogue, friend to everyone, enemy to everyone else. He walks with a swagger not uncommon to his kind, and backs it up with the kind of roguish charm that could woo the iciest barmaid (and frequently has)
Jarus was born to a Human father and Elven mother, a common situation for someone of his half-bred nature. Jarus’ name means “Dove Kin” in Elven, given to him by his mother in reference to his fair skin. Jarus’ father, Tarn, was a successful merchant living in Shadowdale, the descendant of Drow-owned slaves he made a point to make his ancestors proud and become independently wealthy. Jarus’ mother Mylia (Emerald Mistress) was a wood elf, raised in the forests surrounding Shadowdale.
At a young age, Jarus was enamored with the tales of the traveling Adventurers passing through Shadowdale. He would sneak down to the inn and spend long nights listening to the roving band’s tales. He spent his teen years learning the skills that would be necessary for the life of an adventurer. Jarus quickly learned that what he lacked in strength he easily made up for in agility and guile, One day at the local inn, Jarus encountered a man who would change his life, a rogue by the name of “Thale”, Thale sensed much potential in Jarus and he agreed to train him in the roguish arts. After Jarus turned 17, he traveled with Thale to Amn for training. He spent years under Thale’s tutelage, learning the secrets of stealth, trap-finding and lock-picking. Jarus dual-heritage made him a natural diplomat and a cunning swindler.
At the age of 21, Jarus returned to Shadowdale to begin his adventures with his new found skills. The next 4 years went quickly for Jarus, but he gained the admiration of the local adventurers quickly. And while the thrill of adventure is alluring, Jarus finds himself primarily drawn to his adventuring career for the gold, in his heart, Jarus share’s his father’s self-sufficient desire. If you’ve got a lock to be picked, a trap to be sprung or a deal to be made, he’s always available to help… for a price.
