Smitten with woe and surrounded by constant death, Canis has become comfortable with the concept of The Afterlife. Instead of becoming a broken husk of a being,(after watching his loved ones being murdered) he embraces fear and blood as opposed to running from it.
After escaping his family’s murderers he has had decades to hone his skills to become the very thing that made him a poor loner. While looking like hes a unique 20 year old human, he is a Vryloka who cannot succumb to the effects of aging. He estimates that he himself is around 80 years old, but in solitude, its hard to tell. During this time the lone Vryloka sets out training in the arts of assassination and meanders from camps to small villages killing most if not all of the inhabitants. If the area is too crowded, he melds into the shadows pickpocketing at will.
Realizing he can live in a town with little to no suspicion, he has started going into random markets for supplies and to eavesdrop on any problems in the area. Being a refined assassin, and thriving on blood, he also realizes he can make certain people and the problems they cause… disappear. After all… deer and elk are a bit gamy, and for Canis, eating human-like flesh and bones is as appealing as an extravagant and rich dessert.
While in a tavern, Canis hears some interesting news regarding one magician by the name of Xavir(Baja)and his accomplice(Scope)racking up a huge sum of gold by doing just one task. Canis has never seen that much gold in one place. Vastly interested in the rumors, he seeks out the duo with the initial intention of killing and robbing them both. However, the more and more he gathered about the teams endeavors, the more and more he wanted to take part in the adventures for the escalating coin income and for the thrill.
Upon tracking down and approaching the magician and his partner, an interest is sparked in Xavirs’ eyes as he recognizes that Canis hides a secret. “Hmm, what brings a Vryloka to us on this fine day?” Canis hadn’t heard that word spoken in a long long time thus it leads to him telling the magician everything in his own past and why he wants to join the party. It turns out the Assassin has the exact set of skills that Xavir was looking for.
