History

Early Years

Kasto really has no idea who his parents are. His earliest memory is of waking up on the beaches of M'Riss, where he spent many of his youngest years. His love for the sea and desire to see beyond the volcanic rock spurred him to join various crews departing from the Wharf's End.

It is believed that while serving with one of these crews that he first crossed paths with the Red Sash. He claims that the pirates followed him back to his home where was captured and taken aboard one of their vessels as a personal slave to the Captain. Working his way up through their ranks, he eventually secured a position on a looting vessel assigned to pillage conquered vessels after skirmishes.

A Life of Sailing

The details of his escape are unknown, but somehow he returns to the island of M'Riss with a vessel of his own. A nearly wrecked schooner which many thought mere salvage material, but Kasto saw life in the grey-ing timber and named it the Raw Deal.

The weather-beaten schooner was used for a few years to haul supplies for the Rissans and also as a looting vessel after naval battles. He began picking up crews in Hara'jaal which landed him in some trouble with the pirate clans and he quickly abandoned this practice, choosing to stick with his fellow Rissan sailors.

Moving to the Mainland

Having amassed a deal of wealth, Kasto was left with what to do with it all. He was able to persuade the Administrator of Orders of his honest business tactics and commitment to excellence which lead to him being given an exciting opportunity, the chance to re-open the Tavern Troupe Performing Order.

In order to facilitate this, the young Rakash thrust himself into the social life among the mainlanders. Taking both a citizenship with the Province of Zoluren and attending regular Crossings town meetings.

Life in Crossings

His schooner has not been seen at the standard ports, and he now regularly claims crew positions aboard various ships. At some point in time, he acquired ownership of another vessel. Details about how he did this are unknown, but he has been confirmed as the owner and captain of a cog by the name of the Black Storm.

Recently, a publication was put into circulation which featured an interview with the mysterious Kasto. It has been placed here for your viewing pleasure.

Returning to the Sea

Having stepped down from his role as Speaker with the Tavern Troupe Performing Order, Kasto spent most of his time drunkenly sailing around Elanthia and hunting treasure with Anjinson. Eventually, even his partner in treasure lost contact with him. Sightings of the Rakash grew from infrequent to not at all, leaving many to wonder what else he may be up to in his travels.

Having resurfaced for a time, Kasto allowed a second interview to take place and also reach circulation. It has been likewise placed here for your viewing please.

A Pirates Life

As he became a more frequent figure around Zoluren, a mysterious book appeared on the shelves of the local library. Though it did not name him outright, the characters and places depicted were obviously taken from his past. The validity of the claims presented here have never been fully verified. Witness claim that Kasto himself destroys these books on sight and is currently paying handsomely for any copies remaining.

Kasto's Home

Perfectly fitting the village of Fever Point, Kasto's home is a prominent feature to the area. Choosing to decorate with knick knacks and junk collected from the beach around the cabin, it's really no wonder why Kasto himself refers to it as his "fishing shack."
