Name: Rolen Serpet
Details: Half-Elf, male, mid 20s, Rogue
A humanoid male stands before you, his oaken brown hair frames his face. His ears seem to break through his oaken hair like daggers through bark, proudly displaying his half-elven heritage. His strong jaw is covered in a light dusting of oaken hair. His athletic frame is draped in dark leathers with insignia’s burned into the very leathers themselves.
If he were to remove his shirt, you would see a hellish scar just below where his heart would be on both his chest and back. You would also see scars from whips which seem to be from his childhood, across his back.
Rolen is one to never take the odds into his decision making. Impossible jobs or tasks seem only like a challenge to him. While he can be cautious at times when dealing with individuals, he is also scheming and thinking about how to turn the odds in his favor. He is vastly protective of those he calls friends, but enjoys a good prank from time to time.
Rolen was born to a Human Innkeeper and an Elven Hunter, about 25 years before the events of the tavern. While his Mother knew that his father would need to journey to satiate his thirst for adventure, she never knew that shortly after Rolen’s birth she would never see him again. The first nine years of Rolen’s life were very happy as he would sit around The Vulgar Dutchess Tavern, hearing the stories of adventure from the travelers. However at that time the ruler of the land would declare all Half-Elf’s and their parents to be rounded up as they were abominations in this land. He and his mother would be taken into a prisoners camp, where a plague started to take the lives of the people in the camp. Rolen would lose his mother to the plague, but escape with a friend he made in Perin. They made their way to a city called Penrith, there the two would try to stay alive off the streets. Around age 11 both Perin and Rolen would be taken in as wards, Perin was taken in by the local temples, while Rolen was taken in by a Black Dragonborn named Balasar Norixius. Rolen was taught the trade of thieves, and quickly excelled in the tasks from a young age.
Around age 16, Rolen was praised as one of the best Thieves in the city if not the country itself. Rolen was soon being called the Prince of Penrith’s Thieves, and the heir apparent to Balasar. This created a rift between Balasar and Rolen as people would skip Balasar and go to Rolen with certain high skilled jobs. Over this time Rolen created a small group of trusted Thieves. Talia (Human female), Jake (Gnome Male), Alli (Elven Female) who would quickly become his family.
Age 23, Rolen would take a job set up to make it so they could leave the country and be set for life. As they made their way out of the house, they were ambushed by Balasar’s assassins. Rolen would take an arrow to what many people was his heart. As he lay there hanging on to life, he watched as each of his family members were brutally murdered. As the assassins turned to leave, Rolen was able to crawl his way into a nearby stable as he passed out. He was found by a local stable girl who helped him back to strength over the course of the next year. Once he had regained his strength he wrote a ledger exposing the entire Thieves guild and their contacts including all of those in power. He left the gems and ledger in the house knowing that the stable girl may be imprisoned for her part in saving him. He took some coin and boarded a boat headed away from Penrith.

In the basement there is a large set of living quarters. The floor and walls are stone with the roof being made of wood. In the center of the room sits a large table, with 10 chairs. On the walls sit maps of the world and the city, with various notes written in Thieves cant. The far back of the room is a large wooden divider in the room with a large comfortable bed. There is a number of chests and a weapon rack hidden in the room. On the table currently sits a crude map of the lake with notes of the attack.
