Description and History
Victus began as a city guard. He’d been raised in Daggerfalls in an orphanage run by a Miss Ritta Carrington. His mother had died during birth, and he has never known his father.
It wasn’t until the retaking of Daggerfalls by Randle Mourn and his freedom riders that he began his military career. In two years he was part of a patrolling unit, and as the months rolled on, formed a new unit called Talon Company. They were woodsmen who patrolled on foot, securing the rough terrain surrounding Daggerfalls before roaming monster made their way into the lowland.
Showing promise, Victus was lucky enough to be approached by a member of The Hunt, a like minded company who specialized in survival tactics and unarmed combat. This training allowed him to involve Talon Company in special operation missions for Randle Mourn. Such a mission is when, while ambushing several Red Plume guards in the night, Victus was overtaken and captured.
Talon Company managed to escape without notice, but Victus was taken to Hillsfar where he was sold into the Gladiatorial games.
For five years he fought in the games, until after suffering near death injuries, he was thought to be dead and buried in a shallow grave.
However, he survived, and escaped Hillsfar, vowing to return and make the Red Plumes pay. After negotiations with a group of calishite traders, Victus returned to the lands of Hillsfar, keeping to the edges of the Cormanthor where he struck out at nearby patrols and military structures alike. They took what they needed and any merchandise of value was given back to nearby communities. This time gave rise to several rumors of a ghost that haunted the Cormorp. It was said he came in the mist, was immune to all manners of weapons and burned his victims with a fiery staff. All of which are depictions of several tactics used by Victus and his company to instill fear in the Red Plumes.
Eventually he returned to Daggerfalls where he was discharged with honorable mention. Victus took up a post in the Spiderhaunt woods, a place he frequented in his younger years. He had relations with the gnomes there and knew of a cabin beside a small lake called Milishar.
Victus patrols those roads, tending to the safety of traders and private wagons alike.
