PC: Vernim Vutte Knaught

Human male Light cleric of Lady Luck

Born an urchin in the streets of the City of Splendors, Vernim grew up from humble beginnings: he had no name, no identity, and no direction of life. It is unknown how he spent his first few years, but by eight years old he was fending for himself in the trade center of Waterdeep. The locals called him Waldo — a strange boy, never speaking, only hunting for his next meal. An aristocratic family took pity on him and adopted the boy as their own. They called him Vernim from there — to them, Vernim Areugla was a heroic cleric of the Ardeep Forest. Vernim Areugla never appeared to leave his cottage, but in the night he would act as a guardian — he would heal those that were attacked in the night and served as the forest's guardian — healing and protecting the people. The aristocratic family hoped that the urchin would follow Vernim Areugla's footsteps and would serve as a protector; a guardian.

On his 16th birthday, his foster father took him and his family riding. Vernim had already learned how to ride and received a horse for this special occasion. They traveled from the Ardeep Forest towards the High Forest, where elves ruled; however, the weather quickly soured and it began to storm. It was too late to turn back, so they continued on. Suddenly, a flash of light emerged — a gigantic lightning bolt engulfed the family, Vernim included. Vernim noticed that his family was killed in a sudden flash of light, but was unhurt himself. He then realized something — he had been spared from the wrath of the gods. He had gotten lucky — he had been lucky his entire life. He then realized his life was so excellent thanks to Lady Luck. He ran to the nearest town and began training as a cleric, like Vernim Areugla. He knew he had to devote himself to Lady Luck, so he did his best to achieve both while learning the secrets of attack, defense, healing, and light.

Vernim still feels he owes a debt to Lady Luck, but does not mention his past.
