Background:
Rous loved a good fight. Still does. Especially if it means breaking up the monotony. Raised a mercenary, Rous built his skills as a hired sword on the trade routes between Magnimar and the North.

Others have said it was his upbringing that drove him to the road. But it was really the money. Strong and quick, he always found it easier to use his blade to make quick coin. While others were smart and diplomatic, Rous preferred the clean finality of a sharp blade.

His interests in the clerical arts started in Sandpointe. He more stumbled into Sandpointe than anything else. Then again, it might be more accurate to say Sandpointe, or Koya to be exact, stumbled into him. The only survivor of a caravan attack, poisoned and bleeding out, he was found by healer on the outskirts of Sandpointe. She bound his wounds and used her skills to nurse him back to health.

So taken by this healer's abilities and compassion he took up a vigorous study of the healing arts, still a follower of Gorum, Rous saw this as more a realignment with his god than turning away from the sword.

He owes his life to the kindness of this other. He'll not dishonor her by placing a perfectly understandable blood lust ahead of the healing arts. There is a time and place for both and Rous has perfected this understanding, somewhat. Carrying on a healer's trade and watching over others is what matters now.

But all that was the past. It's been many years and the local travel is getting to be a bore. Trading as a healer who can take care of himself still pays but Rous remembers the bigger purses. It's time to see more.
