The first child of Bargrim Wolf Slayer would turn out to also be his last for the mother died in birth. He named the boy Synth after a strange wanderer who once came through his tiny hunting village right before the birth, Bargrim had taken a liking to the odd fellow. Synth served the village by tracking animals for the hunters, a task he did with quite some skill. At the age of ten, on a cold winter day, Bargrim left his son to go out hunting, he never returned. Young Synth was left in the hands of his drunkard of the uncle who spent so much on ale he couldn’t even by scraps of breed for the boy.
After two years of begging off meals from his father’s old friends, Synth had enough and packed his bags. He followed the Crescent Moon River till he reached a small city named Tanga Dar. He came to find work but ended up trapped inside the city slums, squatting in a warehouse with other poor youths. He lived as a pickpocket and petty thief until one day he tried to pick the pocket of a regal looking elf. Though caught, the elf was impressed with the boy’s sleight of hand and took pity on his poor condition.
The elf was the leader of a order of thieves and rogues called the Black Tooth, a band of wandering Elf thieves who had a rather romantic view of their chosen lifestyle, thinking themselves as freemen who didn’t submit themselves to the oppression and grind of the “real world.” Synth became known as the Red Hooded after an accident on his first heist with the order left his cloak covered in blood. Because of his sense of humor and fun loving spirit the Black Tooth came to know him as a morale booster and so encouraged (but controlled) his misbehavings.
After years of service the leader of the Black Tooth died leaving his son in charge. The new leader was not fond of Synth, nor humans in general, and so cast him out of the order using his alcoholism as an excuse, his popularity with the other members was the only thing that saved him from death. Angry at first, Synth decided to make the best of a bad situation and set off on the road to seek new adventures. He’s spent the last two year or so smuggling himself from city to city subsisting off of his thieving skills until he decided to turn his sights to Caldera, hoping the magic power of the place would bring him a new reputation, new life and new adventures.
