Prideful Half-Orc Fighter with a gambling habit
Courage was born Sob to a sorceress defiled by a band of orcs. The mother was ambivalent towards the child who bore so much resemblance to her attackers. She spent much time plotting her revenge. She had a lover who taught Sob to gamble. Eventually the same Orc tribe killed the lover, unbeknownst to Sob. The mother, in a mad rage, unleashed her revenge and decimated the tribe, then in grief, killed herself. Sob believed that she killed herself because of him. Alone & strong, he found another Orc tribe that he joined, introducing himself as Courage. There he learned to use Orc weapons and honed his fighting skills. Finding life there to be unfulfilling, and inspired by the dream that magic could turn him human, he set off to Absalom. Upon arrival, due to gambling loss, he was enrolled into the area as a gladiator. He did well and decided to stick with it, as there were several other misfits like him. Courage is a proud Fighter and does not tolerate his skills or honor being impugned.
