A young half-elf warlock, looking to make his fortune
Kyrian’s once wealthy family migrated to the Sword Coast just before/at the beginning of whatever broke the world. Their wealth and influence meant little in the chaos, and Kyrian was born to poverty. When he was 10 his parents were killed resisting one of the many warlords to rise and fall along the Sword Coast.
He turned to a life of crime, and by the time he was in his late teens he was a fairly proficient thief in a small band of orphans and misfits. On a particularly tricky job he stumbled across a book that whispered to him, and in reading it was drawn into a pact with Shaklata, known as the Eye of Wicked Sight.
He has used the powers he gained to improve his own fortunes, but his compassion for others struggling with poverty (and a healthy dose of fear about the nature of his own power) has pushed him to do more than just take care of himself.
