Background Story

When Markeff Trodwell is in his cups he likes to boast that his son, Kaster, was born and raised on the road. Slurring a bit as he speaks, he will say, "Twenty, thirty years ago we were always on the road. My wife, Kardine hated it then. Always on the move hauling good here and there. We'd turn a few bucks taking the overland route from Port Periwinkle. 'Specially if we could beat the barges coming up river. Spring time was the best. When the snow is melting and the river is up and flowing proper good. We'd turn a good coin trading on the road too, but it was wise not to ask too many questions and to keep your prices reasonable, lest you prod a would be bandit into action." He gives whoever's listening a wink and chuckles. "Ah, I remember we had a deal with a questionable group out by Fallwood. We'd do better than fair trade with their questionable goods in exchange for safe passage through their area. This was back before the King's Guard routed them all out." Filling his cup again, Markeff continues on with his stories, "Ha, there was this one time we were being trailed by a pack of wolves. None of the Folk mind you just the hum drum beasts. Musta been an early spring run coming out of a long winter. They were likely looking for some easy scraps but Kaster caught sight of them and you woulda thought they were charging in and going for our draft animals. Come to think of it, I think he left a puddle in the back of the wagon." He sips from his cup again making a slurping sound and chuckles, "Well all that fun ended the day Ginilly was born. Kardine wouldn't have her little girl growing up on the road. That's when we truly settled down in Kingsalter and started short hauling. Mostly from the docks and warehouses to the in town shops and such." He grins as he looks up "Ah, here comes the boy now."

Entering the pub, Kaster scans the smoky room and locates his father. After all a goat with one horn broken off stands out pretty well. Nodding to his father's old friend as he sat down with the pair, Kaster grins and say, "Well, have I peed the wagon yet tonight?" Old Braster chuckles and nods, "Aye, not too long ago. You're timing is perfect. Any later and he'd be onto the one where he hauled some chests for the King of what could only have been the crown jewels." Braster gives Markeff an elbowing before he stands, patting Kaster on the shoulder and wanders over to some other part of the pub.

Turning to his father, Kaster says, "With Ginilly turning sixteen soon and her bow, Bidrick, is doing great learning the business. Well, I'm gonna get back out on the King's Road and try my hand at long hauling. Before you say anything, I know I don't have a wagon yet or draft beasts but I saved up and bought a hand cart. And you know I'm strong enough and fast enough to handle that on my own." Before Kaster can say much else, his father grabs the back of his head and pulls it toward him, butting it it gently he holds it there and says, "My boy, you know I'm as proud of you as any father could be."

  • Auriana Firetail: Possible it was Kaster and his dad that gave her and her brother a ride after they fled their home.
  • Quetzalcoatl:
  • Waylin Cumberbund:
  • Jesper Brambleborn: Kaster's father had a deal with the bandit clan for protection. Kaster and Jesper would play together when the trader would stop there.
