Lore: Adrian was born as the second son to Graham Riversdale the sixthe Lord of Bywater Downs. As the secon son he would not be inheriting the family lands, these would go to his brother Jason. However Carim tradition demands that the second born is given enough money to build himself his own future.
Of course most second children did not do that. So while his elder brother, Jason, was learning everything he needed to keep the lands intact. Adrian was out drinking, smoking, wenching.
During one such night on Adrians 19th birthday he and his entourage of various other second-born were drinking in one of Carim´s darker corners, a part of the capital known as Hanging End. There in a dark tavern Adrian bumped into one of the soldiers frequenting this area spilling his ale. The soldier enraged and inebriated demanded satisfaction in the form of a duel, which Adrian no less inebriated accepted. That was the day Adrian killed his first man and discovered his talent for dueling.
3 weeks later Adrian met a man that would change his life forever, the man`s name was Chester and he offered Adrian an easy way to become even richer. Chester would aquire various substandard wares, which Adrian would sell to merchants, who once they discovered the lack of quality often challenged Adrian to a duell. Which Adrian due to his skill easily won.
This went on for 2 years. By that time the two men had become some of the richest men in Carim. In this Year Adrian`s father died and his brother took over the family estate. During the burial however the emotions between Adrian and his brother reached a boiling point leading Adrian to challenge his brother. They fought a week later infront of their fathers grave, both being skilled swordsmen but Adrian`s experience allowed him to slowly gain the upper hand. The duel ened apruptly when Jason missed a parry and a blow that was actually aimed for his shoulder hit his chest pucturing the heart and quickly killing him.
Adiran was devestated, for a month he retreated into the chamber that once belonged to his brother, cutting himself completly of from the outside world. This exile ended when Chester appeared, he stormed into the Chambers yelling at Adrian. He told him that he needs to come out of his room and care not only for their business but also for his Land. He made him realise that his brother`s death while unfourtunate was a wonderfull opportunity. That with the money he has now they could expand their business. Adrian agreed and their business that was once little more than a scam, quickly became one of the greatest trading companies in Carim.
By the time of his 25th birthday Adrian became bored with his new live, the company and the family estate were self running and only rarely needed his direct intervention. So he decided to create a society for persons in a similiar situation as him. Men who either through birth or through sucessfull business did not need to work and now needed something else to fill their time.
The Carim Gentleman`s Society, as it was called, quickly grew. It seemed that this was exactly what the upper-class has waited for. The society had everything, it contained one of the greatest libraries, a large wine cellar and a near limitless supply of smokables. It`s members began dedicated themselves not only to the fulfillment of their desires but also to the furthering of knowledge.
One of the societies greatest interests was archeology so when Chester returned from an expedition with a genunine Oolacile pendant, it came as no surprise that most of the societies members where there for the reveal.
To be continued once the DLC is out.
