Moshe Launyx, Sellsword of Felfrost in the Nine Blades
“I would prefer to take you alive. But I get paid either way.”
Colloquially known as ‘Moshe’, (Moh-She or Moh-Shh) and ‘Launyx’ (Lau-Nicks). Originally hailing from a realm far from Amtgardia, Moshe found his stock and trade as a wandering swordsman and Sellsword for those who would hire him.
It wasn’t uncommon for him to preform in battle, as a personal guard, or an assassin. Most contracts called for dead targets, though the ones that give him a choice have usually been brought back alive. He has an abnormally healthy morale compass for someone of his profession, and would regularly allow his opponents a chance to surrender and submit, or fight on their behalf. That is, assuming the battle would be beneficial to both parties. If circumstances arose that direct confrontation would be inadvisable, he would return to his shadowy roots and use stealth and guile to down his prey.
Having defied the wishes of a local Lord and rebuking his attempts to hire Moshe on as a permanent retainer, he was exiled from his former home in Oakenvale and found himself traveling across vast forest lands and mountainous terrain. Eventually he made his way to the province of Angair, within his home realm, and was taken into service at the Silverspire by a powerful mage known as Kairo. In order to prove his mettle, he was tasked with a quest to fulfill and sent through magic to Amtgardia. As with most of Kairo’s protégés, he was not told the specifics of the quest, and was instead left to find the meaning of the journey and complete his task before returning home.
Upon arriving in Amtgardia, he was met by a derelict town seemingly under reconstruction. Entering a nearby tavern to find news of a possible threat in hopes of completing his task, he was met by two strange individuals, one of which sat squarely on the table they both drank at. Introductions where made, and he was informed that most of the threat to this newfound area had past, and rebuilding efforts where now underway across the Duchy known as Felfrost. He soon fell under their banner and fought alongside its denizens on multiple occasions, finding a taciturn place for one of his skills among their classed Assassins. Though part of no Guild or Company, he did for a time work alongside the Mackenzies in defense of Felfrost.
On such an occasion, he and those residents of Felfrost in attendance where transported to another plane of existence by a being known as Hearts. The Archon, Hearts, and his companion Diamonds where at odds on the subject of a summoning circle. The circle in question was the brainchild of the Gods themselves, and Hearts intended to open the portal with the aide of those he had transported. However, Diamonds was opposed to the entire ordeal and made it clear to all the dangers it could potentially bring upon Felfrost and Amtgardia as a whole. In the face of such a decision, Moshe and the entirety of Felfrost’s inhabitants decided against the summoning and fought Hearts into submission, destroying the circle and preventing anything from coming through.
Though his task remains ever elusive, he has begun to believe this place could make a good and welcome home for himself. Time will tell what comes next of his adventures.
