Cade Underbough was born into slavery in a Duergar camp, along with 5 brothers and sisters: Cade’s parents, Lyle and Seraphina, along with his older sister, Jillian, 3 younger siblings (Lyle Jr., Seraphina Jr., and Lidda), and his younger twin brother, Corrin. The conditions which they lived were very bad, considering the Duergar treated everyone else as inferior. As a result, life was hard.
One day, a devastating earthquake ravaged their slave camp, causing many deaths among both captors and slaves including Jillian. Cade and his twin, Corrin, used the chaos to escape. The many years of a hard life left an impact on both of them, but with differing views. Corrin became more of a crusader, wishing to fight against the Duergar, and to liberate all those they have enslaved. Cade, however, only wished to accumulate enough wealth to live a comfortable life by any means necessary. Thus, they eventually seperated, going on different paths, and have never seen each other since.
Somewhere along the way, Cade began experiencing haunting visions of her sister Jillian. He could see Jillian trying to tell him something, but could not hear her. Instead, gusts of wind and other strange events would happen all the time. Jillian was always close with Nature, starting to gain minor magic abilities before she was killed, and somehow with Jillian’s ghost around Cade, he began to manifest these abilities as well.
He teamed up with a fellow Halfling female, named Merla. She was a con artist, who took Cade under her wing. Together, they went from settlement to settlement, scamming anyone whom they could to earn a fortune. When they had enough, they’d live together in a life of luxury. They were more than just partners, but also lovers. The two of them got caught almost a dozen times, but were always lucky to escape.
They went from town to town, Cade using his magical abilities while Merla used her thieving skills to scam and steal everything they could. That is, until one day they came into town to try to steal some items from a local artisan. Cade was caught, while Merla escaped.
He was being held in the town’s make shift jail cell, until one of the town elder’s came up to him and offered him a deal. If he would agree to help out the town, then not only would he earn his freedom, but would get awarded a significant amount of gold as well. To prevent Cade from just running off, some of his possessions were held back. So Cade has no choice now but to help out to earn his freedom.
