Raid Survivor

When a horde of centaurs descended upon a caravan, they left nothing but splintered timbers and tattered canvas in their wake. When the armies marched on the rebel Kingdoms, they took only what prisoners they could use as slaves and slaughtered the rest. Your home was no different, but when the raiders came, you somehow survived. You may have been orphaned. You may have been taken as a slave. You may have even been the sole survivor the raid, desperately hiding yourself underneath the still-warm corpse of another victim.

What matters is that you survived, no matter what you had to do. Work with your GM to determine who or what launched the raid, where the raid occurred, and who led the raiding party. Who did you lose in the raid, and how long ago did it occur? How did you survive the attack? Did the raid fill you with the undying flames of vengeance? If so, are you content to simply take revenge on the leader of the raid, or do you wish to wipe out their entire company? Their entire race?

Suggested Characteristics

Some survivors chafe at losing all they had while others never had much to begin with; raiders care little for whether their victims are rich or poor, so long as they bleed. Most raid survivors seek vengeance against those who took everything from them and dedicate their lives to hunting and killing the raiders.
