    Tiras was born to a poor farming family on the Border Frontier.  A wizard of some repute made the fortified town his home as well, coercing the humans to obey his whims with an army of humanoids.
     At Age 10, unable to support his family, Tiras’ father sold Tiras and his elder brother into slavery to the Hobgoblin soldiers of the wizard. The hobgoblins put Tiras to work as a camp follower.
    At Age 13, the town was attacked by an unusually large band of ogres. Tiras led the other slaves in a counter attack against the Ogres, a brutal affair leaving most dead, and Tiras’ leg broken in many places. The daring of the boy impressed his hobgoblin masters and they began teaching the boy Hobgoblin warfare techniques.
  At Age 14, Tiras was considered a minor courier, acting as  a go-between for the Hobgoblins and their Wizard benefactor. While attending to the wizard, the remnants of the Ogre band caught the wizard unawares, killing him with a well placed boulder throw.
 For the next year The Ogres laid siege to the town. The other humans of the town were slaughtered by the hobgoblins for food during the siege, and fleeing peasants and hobgoblins both were slain by ogres beyond the walls.
  Tiras was able to escape the ogre siege and their eventual victory, and fled towards what he hoped was more civilized lands. With little in the way of marketable skills, he now lives as a mercenary and brigand.
