Background Story: As a teenager, you decided to escape the life of farming and take your chances in a charter town. The lifestyle was tough at first and you took jobs as they came, spending most of your time begging for alms. After a year and a day in the charter town, you had finally achieved your legalized emancipation. Shortly afterwards, a band of travelling entertainers came into town. After careful contemplation and talking with the members of the troupe, you were taken into the band and trained in the arts of the entertainer.
Background Story: Using the wealth that your father earned in his business, he was able to successfully enroll you in a formal educational program in the city. Knowledge and learning have always been a passion to you and the opportunity to study at the religious schools was greatly appreciated. Although you've spent most of your life in various religious surroundings, the life of a clergyman never really appealed to you. Instead, you prefer to travel from monastery to monastery to discover wisdom in the various manuscripts that each place holds.
Background Story: Your father served as a mercenary man-at-arms. Unfortunately, he was a spearman in the front lines during a cavalry charge and didn't survive. Rethinking your career choices left you with the distinct impression that maybe the front line wasn't the place to be and you pursued opportunities to become a crossbowman. In the chaotic reign of King Stephen, a mercenary rarely has to look far for employment.
