Faust is a half-drow, half-orc, a strange combination, his birth was a bad omen to the tribe.
Found by Cirdan, raised by his father Lagan D’aerthe, head of a house of drow, Faust was lucky to not fall under a weakness to sunlight, and has trained with mostly with drow weaponry. Cirdan, an elven sacred exorcist found hous D’aerthe, and Faust’s father granted him the option to leave, and “find himself within the wild”.
Leaving with Cirdan, Faust was never recognized as a member of the sacred exorcists, but instead was associated with the Coin Spears – a band of mercenaries made up of the secret program run by the inquisition, breeding half orcs, half dwarves, half giants and half ogres for battle.
Working along the Coin Spears, he would later meet the adventurers, pensive about going to Yokuda in search of a pair of Wardens that survived the massacre centuries ago.
