Vyrson Von Tachsa is not a terribly imposing individual, but his features are sharp; narrow chin and jawline, curved prominent nose, and a studious glare. One would think he is a quite serious individual upon first glance, but he is rather quick-witted and enjoys a clever joke. Vyrson’s face rarely portrays much more than deep thought, for the young man’s mind is always racing with any number of separate threads. Vyrson has always preferred to surround himself with a few close individuals, but has been known to occasionally hit the tavern for some fun and reckless abandon.
Born and mostly raised in the trade hub city of Chorenhavr, Vyrson is the son of Seshvyr Von Tachsa, a wealthy fine textiles merchant and gambling addict. In early adolescence, Vyrson grew weary of his father’s obsession and consequential absence and wanted nothing more than to ditch his familial duty to his father’s business. He enjoyed the outdoors greatly and spent most of his time working or dodging work in the fresh, outdoor air. To Vyrson, there was nothing more invigorating than getting his hands dirty with any manner of open air workout.
In spite of his father, Vyrson began to regular the pit fights of his hometown, first watching, but later participating. He became quickly renowned as a quick study and a fierce amateur knife and shortsword fighter in the pits, but Vyrson’s interests departed the pits when he finally tired of his opponents’ foolish pride constantly forcing him to bring the youngsters ever closer to death before they would admit defeat.
Turning to a more graceful sport, he took up fencing for a short while, and then heavy lance and halberd fighting, and so on until he became proficient in all simple and martial weapons. His short time with the town guard afforded him training in practical and technical uses for shields in both one-on-one and shoulder-to-shoulder line fighting. A local archery fair turned him on to that elegant sport as well. Spending only a few days time with a discarded bow he recovered from the fair, he mastered his own technique and won third prize at the fair-closing tournament.
Using the gold won via his newly acquired bow skills, Vyrson set off towards the Sword Coast, hoping to find work and a new adventure on the ocean. His first job in the pirate city Luskan was a deckhand position for a black market goods runner vessel. Before the ship even left port, his Captain Teggereth was confronted by an old colleague he had betrayed in the interest of profit. The Captain’s colleague and the friends he brought with him were hostile, intent on exacting revenge in the payment of blood. Together with his Captain’s fancy right-hand swashbuckler fighting, the lefty Vyrson boldly cut down enemy after enemy until the assailants met the end of his longsword, and subsequently the barnacle-crusted floor of the bay.
Proud of his fighting, but shaken at the prospect of having taken the lives of men, Vyrson gracefully departed the ship and the deckhand position before ever leaving the docks, much to the disappointment of the impressed Captain Teggereth. After puttering around the city still reeling from the pirate ship encounter for the better part of a long, humid week, Vyrson finally stumbled upon an interesting group of individuals. They struck up a deal and joined forces, their journey ultimately leading them south to the gargantuan city of Waterdeep.
