Character Backstory

Harlan Underford was born in the 6th Ward of Dog Fenn, the run down, disreputable quarter of the great city of Fynwell. He joined Thieves Guild at young age as this was the best career path out of the slums. He did a few successful minor jobs until the disaster in the Lichford Hills district.

The job that did him in was a four man burglary run on a mansion owned by the Karlsberg family commissioned by Grunslik Tar of Flyside. Tar was interested in certain rare works of art. The heist went very badly, as Karlsberg men knew the thieves were coming and set up an ambush. Two of Harlan's co-conspirators died. Redbeard Pete, the other survivor, was convinced Harlan was the snitch who sold the team out to Karlsbergs.

Karlsberg family kept things quiet for a while, but armed men have been seen in Dog Fenn asking about "a Badger" and "a Redbeard". Supposedly they want them alive for questioning.

Grunslik Tar was angry, not just because of the failed the job, but also because he does not want Karlsberg's men to know about his operations. He knows that they have ways of extracting information out of people. Not that anyone involved in the Lichford Hills job knew anything of importance. But for Grunslik, it's better to be safe than sorry.

Harlan decided it was best to lay low for a while. Perhaps leave the city altogether until things blow over. Which is how he ended up in Fairhaven along with the rest of the Protagonists.
