Unlike most children who come into the work kicking and screaming, Evander entered with what the doctor described as “A grin on his face and in his eyes.” It was that grin and lust for life that would carry Evander through everything life had to throw at him.
As Evander grew up he often found himself alone, as his mother worked nights to support them and slept most of the day, leaving him to amuse himself most of the time, though that was never very hard for him.
His curiosity was fit for his small port town and he spent a good portion of his time on the docks, listening to the tales of any sailor he could get to talk to him. Evander spent the rest of his time in the library, reading everything they had, and eventually having to order new books from other towns.
When he was of age to work he gained the position of assistant dock master, with his precise technical knowledge and knack for keeping books. But eventually his wanderlust got the better of him and he convinced the captain of a small merchant vessel to let him aboard as a cabin boy.
Three weeks into his maiden voyage though he emerged from cleaning the bilge to find the rest of the crew slaughtered, and a half-orc now at the helm. The half-orc, Julius Acidmaw, fortunately spared his life and took him on as his first crew member, and eventually first mate.
Now they sail the high seas with the rest of their crew, looking for adventure, and great loot!
