Demetor Von Jägerstadt
Demetor began life as the son of a merchant sailor and his seamstress wife in the sizable ocean side city of [insert name later]. The principle trading hub of the surrounding region, [insert name later] was a melting pot of cultures, religions, and ideals. When his father was not out to sea, Demetor would accompany his father to work and observe the daily trading activities exposing to a pantheon of diverse social elements. His father’s crew mates would occasionally give Demetor rudimentary combat lessons (a skill necessary to survive the pirate-choked waters of the most efficient and profitable trade routes), and he relished sparring on a weekly basis.
After losing his father at sea and his mother to disease, he fell into a rather rough crowd of adolescents who bullied the other children and would stir up trouble in the lesser-policed areas of the city. The bullying escalated to harassing the more destitute citizens of the city in increasingly violent ways, a progression that bothered Demetor deeply. Eventually his frustration at his companion’s behavior reached the breaking point, and during one of the group’s “games” involving a homeless man who couldn’t speak, Demetor turned on the group’s ringleader and beat him savagely after his refusal to call an end to the cruelty. Utilizing the skills that the deckhands had taught him, he barely managed to defeat several other young men that attempted to defend their leader before fleeing deeper into the city to hide.
