Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
Malark was brought to Red Larch via a letter sent to him from an anonymous “friend”, who warned him that he had wronged some people he shouldn’t have, and that men in robes with a symbol on them were after him.
The friend turned out to be Vallivoe, and the men bandits who had stolen the robes of fire cultists. They had blackmailed Vallivoe into sending Malark into an ambush but did not expect the party to come with him. Malark confronted Vallivoe about his treachery and the shopkeep swore to make up for his deception.
Malark last operated out of Silverymoon. He was embroiled in a con, pretending nobility for the opportunity to woo the daughter of a rich merchant. Things went south when the father caught onto the act, threatening retribution.
<<This needs to be a bigger thing to fit the character description. I want it to be con-related, and it makes sense for things to have gone south, but it doesn’t seem powerful enough>>
Malark had contact with a mage who offered means of defending himself and a safe way out of the city. All he had to do was sign this contract. He signed the contract, unbeknownst to him sealing a deal with the devil. He doesn’t quite understand what he’s got into but so far, he’s enjoying the powers it unlocked.
Recently, a demonic tome appeared by his bed one morning with a note explaining its use. Is someone following him? And what is with these strange dreams?
