Sebastian grew up in the farmlands of the north Avery Coast in a very close nit farming community. It was there that the tenets of The Old Faith, community, service, respect for all living things were firmly ingrained in him. He spent much of his youth roaming the forests where he developed a close relationship to the beauties and wonder of nature and animals. He dreamed of becoming a ranger, a protector of the wilds.
This idyllic youth was suddenly disrupted when he turned 16 in 490 AOV when his father deemed him a man and sent him off to follow the family tradition as he and his father had done. Sebastian, armed only with a quarterstaff and the family heirloom ornate longbow was to take part in the Fourth Yerasol War. If he wasn’t truly a man when he first set off, he was by the time the war ended in 493. The realities of war affected Sebastian in many ways. Too scared at times to admit that he was scared, his voice rose in octaves to the point where he now talks as if permanently terrified. Too scared to know better he often performed heroic acts without even realizing what he was doing. Ultimately, he was led to seek answers for all he had witnessed. He came to the big city of Flint and turned to the clergy for solace, wisdom and hope.
It is as a cleric of The Old Faith, he goes forth to seek justice, while spreading the old values as best he can. A virtual Luddite, his experiences in ‘modern warfare’ left him with great doubt as to the value of technological advancements. He still carries but a quarterstaff and the family heirloom ornate longbow “They got me this far, didn’t they?” he shivers. His one concession is a blood stained chain shirt, “But one can’t be too careful, now can he?” He actually experimented with a double barrel pistol only to have it blow up in his face. He dealt it away in order to magic the family heirloom bow.
When the globe spins on its axis
Steel ships go to war in a sail of shadows
When the world passes into night
And blackness grips as stars fall from the sky
The King’s eyes turn soulless white and he moves as if a puppet
With his strings pulled by a man who dies 1,000 times.
