Bio:

Born under a bad sign some may say. Lucien’s mother was a half elf barmaid, working to make a living for him. Lucien never knew his father, his mother said little about his father. Being a bastard Lucien was always looking for the respect that he felt he disserves. He displayed a quick wit, and keen thirst for knowledge. But Lucien lacks the patience take on the path of a scholar or wizard. Lucien thrives in an environment where he can play things fast and loose. One such environment is the criminal underworld. Having a knack to pick a lock or talk your way past the city guard, proved to be useful skills and soon garnered the attention of the River rats. Lucien spent the latter half of his adolescence in the river rats, picking pockets and committing burglaries. One night, the gang was breaking into a storehouse…

Among the gold and art that were in the storehouse there was a crate amongst the straw lay a strange book. Opening the book and drawing upon the forbidden knowledge and power. Lucien has sealed his fate, inadvertently making a pact with the forces of the Far Realm. Lucien is using his newfound power to gain social/political power. Recently he has begun managing an up incoming Tiefling bard; Lucian recognizes her potential when properly steered towards his over-arching goals. Forming AMG (Arcane Management Group) looking to get away from the old tired troupes of Monasteries and Universities, get down to focusing arcane magic to be used to political and finical gain. To gain power within the Vale and to later once a strong power base is formed to expand past the vale. Lucien’s childhood Lucien grew up in the lower wards in felcrest. In the one of the roughest taverns in Felcrest, “the lucky Gnome tap house” Where is mother was a barmaid. Lorna Shadetree used her wits and determination to carve a stable existence in Lowcrest. Lucien learned a lot from his mother, and shared a keen wit and charms. What Lucien did not share was his Ambitions for greater things. He wanted to be respected,

Lucien had many friends growing up. The other children of Lowcrest did not mind his half-elven heritage; they were cast aside by society and did not understand the ramifications of his fey blood. Lucien’s best Friend was Kelson, a Human boy who frequently liked to cause mischief. Lucien enjoyed the adventures that he had with Kelson. The boys quickly gain a small amount of infamy the local Merchants and City Guard called them Little River Rats. The interests of the young friends went in different directions. Kelson began to grow his own organization, Lucien diversified his interests preferred to chase girls than pockets. The River Rats

The dominant crime organization in the lower reaches of Felcrest. The River rats had innocent roots forming from a small brotherhood of orphans and runaways. The name River Rats came from what the shopkeepers and traders near the docks called the gaggle of trouble Makers, Kelson took their title and empowered it. Soon it was the coolest thing to do was to become a river rat. As they became young adults became more violent and malevolent in nature. Soon it started as vandalism and petty theft, soon begot muggings and protection rackets. While Lucien was part of the initial inception of the River Rats he did not officially become involved with the Criminal happenings till the Gang had become infamous in the District. Kelson knew that Lucien would be a great fit into the organization. He needed an inner circle that he could trust as the crew Expanded. Lucien’s keen charm and nimble hands made him a fine information gatherer. Lucien would gather the intel needed to black mail merchants or the guard rotation at noble dock houses. Lorna’s Sacrifice

The River Rats broke into the store house of Kamroth a self made Noble in felcrest. Lorna had suspected that Lucien was running on the wrong side of the Law. Lorna Trailed Lucien to the warehouse. As they made their escape Lorna confronted Lucien. Lucien explained that was only stealing to help support her like she had done for him in the tavern. While this intervention was taking place the city Guard had tracked them down. As they went to arrest them Lorna grappled a guard pressing a knife to the man’s throat, and Lucien to run. Lucien wouldn’t go at first, Lorna Screamed at him to run, And slit the man’s throat and threw the body at the others. She created a diversion for Lucien to get away unidentified. Lucien has not seen his Mother since. There is a 1000 gold bounty on the head of Lorna Shade Tree.
