Rhyddid "Asshat" Windsailor
"Dude, I'm a pirate"
Rhyddid was born on the ship Golden Phoenix, a pirate ship seized from the Veparan army, in the middle of the Distaw Sea. His father was the human first mate of the ship, and his mother was a Veparan elf prisoner. From a young age, After his mother decided to leave him with the ship as opposed to taking a half-elf to live with pure elves, Rhyddid became a part of the crew, and grew up alongside the Golden Phoenix, building up his reputation as a pirate.
When Rhyddid was 23, the Golden Phoenix was attacked by the Rabid Ferret, another pirate ship captained by Damiin Montoyana(a purist elven captain who disapproved of the half-breeds on the Golden Phoenix). In the conflict, Rhyddid’s father was killed by Montoyana, and the Golden Phoenix was burnt out.
For an unknown reason, Montoyana set Rhyddid free, but left him out on a lifeboat to die. Set adrift in a raft by the crew of the Rabid Ferret, Rhyddid survived off of sea life and rainwater. He was eventually found by human fishermen, who took him to the Podere Valley. Desperate for adventure, Rhyddid took up mercenary work in order to find direction, and eventually avenge the death of his father.
