Reign of Winter
A handsome Taldan from the beardless class
A Taldan male Paladin of Abadar
Atsur grew up working alongside his father, Gabradon Chelmun, in the family business in Zimar. Gabradon was a retired adventurer who became one of the many blacksmiths who forged weapons and armor for the Taldan Phalanx. During his travels, he fell in love with an Ulfen noblewoman named Ingirt from the Lands of the Linnorm Kings. He married Ingirt and returned to his native Taldor, where he opened his business and started a family. Atsur is an only child. His family followed Abadar to protect them and bless their trade. Atsur grew up hearing stories of the beautiful and dangerous North from his mother, and he developed a strong desire to follow in his father’s footsteps as a great warrior and perhaps carve out his place amongst the great leaders of the northern lands. Recently, a deadly plague, arriving from Korvosa in Varisia, swept through Zimar. Although not as virulent as it was in its city of origin, this plague killed many in Zimar. Gabradon and Ingirt were among those who contracted the disease and died, but Atsur survived. Filled with guilt and remorse, he sold the family business and sought refuge in service to Abadar. Over the next year, he became a Paladin of Abadar’s order and is ready to carry out Abadar’s divine will as a living example to others. His first task was to travel to the small village of Heldren and find and destroy some bandits that have been targeting the regional trade routes for years. After he eliminates this immediate threat, Atsur has vowed to carry Abadar’s divine message to the North.
