The Silent War
Marcus was an orphan in a big city. He met Rhogar when he was very young and together they got by stealing and scrounging. As they got older they joined up with a local thieves guild. During a job for the guild Marcus and Rhogar stumbled across some magical creatures of the wood being tormented. They came to the rescue of the creatures, and in thanks the spirit of the wood blessed Marcus. Marcus saw the light so to speak, and he is trying hard to mend his thieving ways. He is curious sometimes to a fault, a little on the quiet side, and has a bad habit of lying when he does speak.
