Whoa, I actually finished mine. This must be a miracle. Basically, I've got a human fighter here.
Kevry Larendo was born in a normal family near a border between two countries. When he was around 15 years old, a war broke out. The countries were evenly matched, until one of them enlisted the aid of some mercenary wizards. They turned the tide, and used, among others, teleport spells to send squads of soldiers behind enemy lines. One of those squads happened upon Kevry's family, and his father died protecting his house. His mother was sick, and with war turning against them and enemy squads causing damage around, the roads weren't safe for travel. Nobody came in time, and she died, leaving Kevry alone in the big house. He soon decided to leave, and took his fathers old sword. He travelled toward the capital, aiming to join the army and avenge his father. While on the road, he met a deserter-turned-ruffian. He tried to attack Kevry, but Kevry, probably by pure luck, thrust his sword through him, and killed him. Kevry was terrified at first, but soon understood that if he were to ever join the army, he would have to learn to kill. He arrived at the capital, and, being tall for his age, managed to pass as old enough for the army. He was recruited, and sent to the frontlines, because the country was desperate, and the war was being lost. By pure luck, he survived his first encounters and, over the next year of fighting a losing battle, hardened into a real soldier. Slowly but surely, the army lost ground to the invader, and were soon almost defeated. The capital was under siege and the enemy had conquered the whole of the country. Kevry was on a scouting mission when the enemy wizards launched their most terrible attack yet, blasting a huge hole into the castle, and allowing the enemy troops to pour in. Kevry, observing this from a far-away hill, realised the fight was lost. He fled, and managed to survive. During the next years, he worked first as a mercenary and later as an adventurer, but mostly just roaming around. He wanted to see the world, and was quite well-travelled. One day, he happened to be in a port city. One of the ships was leaving toward Fassilia, and as that was one of the places he had never happened to visit, he decided to step onboard. He bought a trip, and is now on a ship, sailing toward the (distant?) land of Fassilia...
