Accused of crimes against Moradin and Kord that he didn’t commit, he was exiled and excommunicated by priests of Moradin and Kord. To redeem himself, he’s on a quest of atonement for said crimes, even though he didn’t commit them. He’s traveled the lands and picked up a reputation as a fearsome fighter and mercenary. While working as a mercenary, he was shanghaiied after winning a drinking contest in a seedy port bar and transported to Celidor.
His name was given because of a purple birthmark shaped like a starfish on the right side of his face.
