Ki-amar is a middle-age male Genasi from the region of Akanul. His distaste for the greed and apathy of many of the merchants in the Bay of Akanul has driven him away from his homeland.
Born into a merchant family in the city of New Breen, Ki-amar was a special case in his family tree: he was of the watersoul manifestation. A majority of the citizens around him were of the windsoul manifestation. He wasn’t disturbed too much by this difference, but at the same time he never felt completely comfortable either. Ki-amar and his family lived specifically on the outskirts of Lower Breen, the trading post below the towering city by the water. As a young genasi, Ki would join his father near the coast while he traded with sailors and other foreigners. He would hear stories of faraway places and people and beasts which aroused his tastes and adventurous nature and derailed his desire to be a part of his father’s business. While down by the bay Ki would love to swim in the water, and when it rained he would always be outside to enjoy it. By the time Ki became a teenager, he was teeming with thoughts of what lie beyond the mountains to the East casting New Breen into shadow before the flatter places of the world. He also grew more interested in the towering city above him, the heart of New Breen. Moreso than his parents allowed, Ki would go into the city where the greed of merchants was not as prominent, and would find people from all backgrounds. One particalur fellow, a female stormsoul genasi named Mai-sal, wielded a scimitar which seemed to have a faint yellow glow to it which caught his interest. Ki approached the walking genasi and inquired as to why this was. Seeing the intrepid nature of Ki-amar, she escorted him to her living quarters in a less dense part of the city. Mai-Sal told Ki that the things she was about to show him were not something you could expect to see everywhere, and that it should not be discussed with anybody but him and her. Over the next many months Ki would sneak off into the city to learn from Mai-sal the arcane ways of her trade. Mai-sal showed Ki the bond that she shared between her and her weapon, and explained that this is what set her above many other warriors. She put Ki-amar through intense training in both arcane and physical strength, but when Ki had become familiar with basic physical training and intensive magical training, she told him to go out and find a weapon, a weapon that would be bonded to him to the point where it was part of his own body. He could not complete his training with Mai-sal until he had it. Eager to complete his training, Ki-amar went back home and thought of where he could find such a weapon. Searching the deepest chasms of his mind he remembered back to a father-son bonding trip of sorts a few years back. On this trip Ki and his father ventured south of New Breen into the forest with camping gear and such and settled down near a small pond in the woods. One morning, Ki took a swim into the pond and something caught his eye: the hilt of a bastard sword sticking out of the sand on the pond floor with a strange symbol etched into the center. Ki was just a young lad and could not pull the sword out. He was about to tell his father about it but something told him he should keep it a secret. After a while he almost forgot about the sword altogether, until now. The next morning Ki got up early and started the trek towards the forest in an attempt to find that pond, and that sword stuck in the sand. Ki-amar went on his venture with very little on him, but with the training that Mai-sal had given him thus far, he wanted to challenge himself by making this trip so lightly rationed. In about three weeks time, Ki-amar found himself back in the city of New Breen down the alley where Mai-sal had led him so long before. Over the next few months Ki-amar’s parents saw their son even less, and were getting the hint that he was not planning on staying for much longer. Mai-sal taught Ki everything she knew, and by the time he was a strong young adult, held a strong, lasting bond with his sword. She told him that the symbol etched into his sword was that of Corellon, and that followers of Corellon appreciate arcane magic and its beauty, and how it can be practiced even in the arts of war. With his training complete, Ki-amar sought to put his skills to good use and free himself from this region of greed and apathy. The excitement that training with Mai-sal brought him was more than enough to inspire and shape his destiny as a warrior. After years of adventuring in a general Eastward direction, Ki-amar found himself in the small town of Astrovin for a short time where he was taken captive by followers of Tiamat, the evil god of greed and envy. Up until now, he did not recognize a true purpose for his trade, other than building a stronger bond with his magic and along the way slaying those who are corrupt with greed to the point where it completely absorbs them, but now his eyes are set on Tiamat, and his heart boils with a vengeance he has never before experienced.
