New Champion Gobi!
Like many lowborns in the Realm of Nature, the ursan Gobi's childhood was an affair of needs. His father was killed shortly after his birth, and as one of seven cubs, he often went to bed hungry. On the eve of his fifth birthday, he left his family hovel in the dead of the night without a word, resolved to free his mother from the burden of feeding another mouth.
It wasn't long before he took up with the Kodar clan, a rough-and-tumble band of liars and thieves who swore loyalty only to each other. He mastered the arts of sword and shield under the tutelage of the group's leader, a callous old soldier known as Tyco. But as Gobi came of age, the climate shifted in the Kodar clan... outlandish accusations, dissension and paranoia threatened to tear the gang apart, as if someone were plotting to erode the group from the inside out. Shortly before his twelfth birthday, Gobi decided that it was time to move on, strapping all that he owned to his back and setting out to make his fortune as a sword for hire in the distant Fort Blackstone.
As luck would have it, mercenaries were in high demand at that time. Clandestine forces had snatched up the Elf Queen Eloia's treasured Orbs of Nature, artifacts instrumental to the preservation of balance in the Realm. The contract was completed within the week; it came as no surprise when Gobi was conscripted to lend his sword to more adventures. In the verdant fields of the Realm of Nature, Gobi proved his incredible skill and relentless form with sword and shield, rapidly rising through the ranks and making his name as a famous soldier of fortune. So it was that the lowborn ursan found himself summoned by the eminent Queen Eloia herself...
