In Alkenstar, there are only three types of people: the strugglers, the supporters, and the feeders.
Garrett grew up in an unremarkable family in Martel, the small town that lies in the shadows of Alkenstar’s massive towers. He was never comfortable with the mediocrity dealt to him by fate, and leapt at the opportunity to apprentice himself at the Gunworks at the age of 14. There, he devoured the secrets of metallurgy and alchemy at a rate far surpassing that of his peers until, at age 16, he was accused of stealing parts from the factory. Though they never were able to prove the theft, Garrett was thrown out onto the streets, and if it weren’t for a generous independent gunsmith artisan from Dongun Keep who noticed him assembling his hard-earned weapon in a back alleyway using the scrap metal of a rain gutter to hold parts together, he would have lived on in relative poverty and obscurity.
With the help of Orragalt “Copper-tooth” Throngard, Garrett was given another opportunity at success in the Alkenstar City Watch. War criminals, thieving refugees, and wild-eyed killers abounded in Alkenstar, and the Watch was more than happy to overlook a minor infraction for a pair of capable hands. While Garrett wasn’t patrolling the streets of Alkenstar, he lived with his mentor and helped run the old dwarf’s business.
Six years later, Garrett has risen to a respected rank in the City Watch, and has been in more than a few deadly firefights. At his promotion to Sergeant, he was given a silvered pistol by his mentor Orragalt, a gift he treasures to this day. He respects Alkenstar and its people a bit more than when he was younger, though he still wishes to see what the wider world is like, outside the eternal haze of sand and soot that blankets the city. He has heard tales from Gebbite refugees of a society of adventurers and explorers known as the Pathfinders, who travel the Inner Sea and beyond in search of lost treasure and old knowledge.
Garrett believes that there is a time and a place for both underhanded and straight-laced tactics. He is fiercely independent and dislikes relying on others, but he enjoys leadership positions wherever possible. He attributes his success in equal parts to luck and hard work, and reveres Torag as his patron deity. He may no longer be a struggler, but Garrett still doesn’t see a place for himself in the existing paradigm of Alkenstar.
