The Office of External Solutioning
Lorde hails from Amn, a city full of commerce. As a young dragonborn, his parents were murdered in front of him by mercenaries. His parents had been in the shopping district when a battle broke out between bands of mercenaries. They were caught in the crossfire.
Lorde was put into the care of a monastery dedicated to Thoth. He was raised by the many chaplains, monks, and nuns. During his time there, Thoth reached out to Lorde telling him that he would grant him knowledge and power in exchange for his servitude. Lorde agreed to this but went mad with power and killed everyone at his monastery.
Lorde now acts as a mercenary, earning money whenever possible and only helping people when there is a reward.
