Ye’Kan Roberts was born to a human woman named Mara; he never met or heard anything about his Elf father. Mara moved on to a new relationship with a human man when Ye’Kan was a toddler, but this man ended up stealing everything from the small family and left them in ruin. Mara fell ill soon after and died, so at the age of five Ye’Kan was sent to live at the nearest Elf settlement. Growing up as both an orphan and a half-blood, he never fit in with his peers and so he spent most of his time alone learning to play the lute and reading from the vast libraries of the community. It was there that he found volumes of epic tales telling of great adventurers and their heroic feats, a wondrous escape from his discouraging reality. He became obsessed with the idea of finding such heroes and telling their stories for all to hear, so at the age of fifteen he left the Elf community and set out to find adventure in any form that he could. Within weeks he found a job aboard a sailing ship, a career he assumed would constantly provide new lands to visit and people to meet. After almost two years of sailing, however, his ship was overrun and captured by a pirate crew led by the notorious Captain Soze. During the battle Soze’s top musician was killed, so the feared pirate decided to bring Ye’Kan onto his crew after seeing the lute strapped to his back but declared that he would kill the teenager at any moment if he was ever disappointed with his performance. Luckily the aspiring Bard was quite talented at this point and ended up fitting in just fine with his new crew, regaling them with music and stories every night. After taking part in countless more adventures on both land and the sea over the next decade, Ye’Kan asked Soze—now his closest friend—if he could leave the ship and set out on his own. The pirate captain agreed, and as a parting gift provided the Bard with a tip on how he might find the mysterious man who ruined his family and left his mother to die over two decades earlier. After spending his whole life literally singing the praises of great adventurers, Ye’Kan Roberts was now ready to become one himself.
