Description and HistoryFaceous was
born in Selgaunt, the only son of an important thief. His mother is unknown to him (his
father never married, and was with many women), and his father was very busy. He was a
high-ranking member of the local thieves guild, so Faceous grew up knowing only thieves.
Faceous enjoyed a very hedonistic lifestyle at an early age, and continued living it right
up through his teenage years. His father felt that it was easier to throw money at
Faceous, than to do anything else with him, so Faceous never had to work at anything.
Once Faceous reached his early twenties, his father felt that he should
start to earn his keep. Faceous had other ideas. He had no desire to learn the craft of
the thief, and besides, that would interfere with his carousing. He agreed to perform
simple functions, like acting as middleman in simple transactions, but wouldn't actually
steal anything. His father became more frustrated, as faceous often botched even the
simple jobs he was given, as he was usually drunk in some tavern. Finally, at the age of
25, Faceous was cast out by his father, and left to wander on his own.
A serious alcoholic by this time, Faceous ended up begging (he had never
learned any skills), and slept many night sin the streets of the city. He wandered the
country of Sembia, until one night he was found by a cleric of Tyr. Sensing something
great in this bum, the cleric took him into the temple. Over the next few months, Faceous
began to receive the one thing he never had; love. He quit drinking, and became a cleric
He served in the temple for a few years, and then left to make his own
way. He soon met up with the Riders of Elvenflow, who had just suffered serious
casualties. They were attempting to remove some azure bonds they had been branded with,
and Faceous agreed to help. He remained with the party through the successful completion
of that adventure, and helped found the town of Elven Flow. He set up his own temple of
Tyr (called The Hall of Justice), and became the Chief Magistrate of the town.
During this time, Faceous adventured less. Already much older than most
of the Riders, Faceous believed he could do more good as a mentor to the paladin, Cassius,
and as leader of his temple. His adventuring career was also hurt when he lost his right
hand in battle. Feeling that this was a direct sign from his god, he refused to have the
hand regenerated. He is without it to this day. He also served as the more conservative
voice in town, clashing repeatedly with Ambrosia, Dennis, and Fenrys, over town policy. He
also became close friends with Giotto Voltairin, a new addition to the Riders, and met an
older witch named Avangelyne through him. Faceous and Avangelyne were soon married, but
not before Faceous succumbed to alcoholism for the first time in over a decade. Thanks to
his friend and fiancee, he beat back his personal demons.
Faceous and Avangelyne were present for the destruction of Elven Flow,
and were imprisoned in stasis with the rest. Upon their freedom, they decided to retire.
Faceous bought a house near Silverymoon, and they remained their for many years. Recently,
Baish has asked their assistance in freeing Unther from Tiamat. faceous was reluctant to
help, but Avangelyne pledged their support, and they are currently on their way to help.
Faceous looks old. He abused his body for quite some time, and you can
tell. He is rail thin, with wrinkles galore. He tends to be sick a lot, and hates the
cold. He always is dressed very well, and takes great pride in his appearance. He is a
very conservative man and is saddled with great guilt for his misspent youth. He feels
that he is too old to adventure, and usually will hang back and heal.
