Bio:

Early Life: Vahn grew up in a very poor family. Both his father and mother worked long days and nights to provide for his family to barely get by from week to week, not always being able to feed their children every day. Vahn was the youngest of 4 children, a brother the eldest and 2 sisters. When his brother was old enough to work he did so as a courier and one day on his route he was killed by bandits. The death made his mother question everything about her life and her relationship with her husband who could barely provide enough to feed the family. She left him shortly after the death of her oldest son taking her daughters with her, leaving Vahn with his father. To this day he has not heard from his mother or sisters since that day.

When his Vahn’s mom left he dad fell into depression, continued to work but was always drained. Some days he wouldn’t go to work and Vahn couldn’t eat, until one day Vahn was in the market looking at all the food merchants with full carts and he had no money to spend. He found one cart full of fruit and stole a couple off the back when he thought the merchant wasn’t looking, but he was wrong and the merchant immediately started chasing him through the streets. The chase seemed to last forever and Vahn franticly tried to find an unlocked door to go through and hide from the merchant. He found one and last, slipped through without the slightest hesitation and closed the door behind him. When he looked up he saw a group of men look up from a table they were gambling at for just a moment then back at their cards. One man however gestured to a chair and told him to wait.

Road to Crime: When they were done playing cards all the men left except for the one who told him to wait, who now called him over to the table. “And to what do I owe this unexpected visit boy?” he asked while looking Vahn up and down. “I just needed a place to lay low for a few minutes, I meant no harm to you, I promise.” Vahn blurted out without thinking. The man laughed and responded “and why did you need to do that? Don’t lie to me boy, I will know.” Vahn showed the man the fruit he had taken and simply said “I was hungry and I don’t have a copper to my name.” The man thought for a moment and said “I will tell you what lad, I will pay you to run errands for me and I will teach you to provide for yourself, if you would like, but you must be loyal to me.” The mere thought of making money made Vahn excited and he said “I will sir, my name is Vahn by the way, and I am up for anything.” The man chuckled again and responds “Well you can call me Felix, meet me back here tomorrow and we will start you on your way.”

Felix was a stout man, with questionable habits, he was the town bookie to be exact but he seemed to take a liking to Vahn. When Vahn first started working with him at a young age he was just delivering messages and the like but as he got older and bigger he became an enforcer for Felix and would collect debts for him. He did this for many years until Felix finally passed away of old age. After attending the small burial Vahn decided he really did not want to live like Felix and just be another Thug. He would search for a new life one with adventure… and what you know, the carnival happened to be in town.
