Born into Brelish high society Vashto’s life was mostly one of ease. Learning early how to
navigate the social scenes, and he always had an interest in the “social predators.” Those always trying to find dig up dirt in the latest gossip, always trying to use others as a cat’s paw that would push them up in society.
Having gone to parties most all his life made the draw of the college social life less a potential pitfall to him. Attending two years at Morgrave University, Vashto left the school with strong connections, many friends, and a (very slightly) over a Gentleman’s C grade point average.
Having completed his schooling, it was time for Vashto to set out upon the city on his own. At first renting out, and later buying a large apartment in one of the upper towers. He was able to take advantage of a trade on some Syberis Shards that were traveling through the city and make enough money of his own to buy the apartment, and continue his living his life with out much having to touch his trust fund.
As time went on Vashto found himself in a state of ennui started to overtake him. The war had come to an end, and the potential for excitement seemed to drain out of the world with it. This is when the Tower Hawk first started to appear in the city of Sharn. [To be continued.]
