Bio:
Ander Lightfingers (son of Merric and Shaena Riverwend) was born on a river boat on which his parents had agreed to work in exchange for passage to the next port town. Ander spent the first eight years of his life traveling with his parents from port to port. He picked up a little knowledge of sailing and dock work,—as well as pickpocketing, which his parents occasionally did to supplement their income—but what he mostly picked up were the wild tales told by the sailors with whom his family traveled. He was especially fascinated by stories of evil cults and the heroes who vanquished them.

Ander’s days of traveling the river ended the day he failed to make it back on board the boat upon which his family traveled before it cast off. His parents were unaware he was still on land until it was too late. Ander stayed at the port town a few weeks, hoping his parents would return for him, but it did not come to pass. He eventually convinced himself that they must have been taken by one of the evil cults of which he’d heard in stories to be used for a sacrifice. (Better that than believe they’d abandoned him.) Resigning himself to being an orphan he began to wander and soon found himself in Elturel.
