Backstory

Born into a noble house in the province of Therengia, his family fell upon hard times when his father was falsely accused of thievery by a rival, and was imprisoned, where he fell ill and died. While in prison though, his father made friends with a S'Kra named Schvartzgonif, who agreed to help out the young boy and his mother; as the S'kra was going to be shortly released.

His mother was a disciple of Alamhif, and believed that there was good in all peoples. She and the young lad were provided for by the young Mur, who resided in the town of Crossing. The young Adon played on the streets with the others, but never joined in pickpocketing games with them, but rather would watch the knights come and go on Herald Street.

The young boy grew into his teens, and it was soon time to either go study at the Aesmath Academy, or join a guild. Unfortunately for the young lad, the Gorbesh War came, and his mother was one of the many who lost their lives defending the Old Temple. The young man, determined to clear his families name, now had an additional duty - to defend the ways of the Gods. Although still younger than many of the guilded, due to the many deaths of seasoned warriors to the Gorbesh, the Paladin Guild, who by this time was being led by Darius in the Crossing, accepted him into their ranks.

Unusual for a paladin, he worships Botolf. His reasoning is, that everything happens for a purpose. And to serve the greater good, sometimes unorthodox means of accomplishing those deeds must be chosen by those who would follow the teachings of the gods.
