Allister was born to the Tain family in the city of Veluna, while not a politically powerful family they are noted as staunch bannermen to the church of Heironeous, every member of the Tain family for the last 23 generations have earned the name Paladin. The Shinning One’s light seems to grace the Tain’s at birth.
It was no suprise that Allister took up the causes of Heironeous and as his fathers and grandfathers before him seemed destined for the path of the Paladin…
A fortnight before he was to take his sacred vows, Allister was on patrol near the border of Ket. His unit was attacked by a band of brigands and a brutal combat ensued, the battle went badly for the brigands and near the end Allister’s childhood friend Jochim called for the remaining brigands to throw down thier weapons and surrender. The brigands complied and the Heironians went about administering aid to the wounded.
As Jochim went to lay his hands on a wounded brigand, the brigand produced a hidden dagger and cut Jochim’s throat. The brigand promptly threw the weapon down, fell to his knees and called out his surrender. Allister rushed to the aid of his fallen friend to no avail, the brigands dagger had done its savage work… Jochim was dead.
Allister looked at the brigand and saw the mirth in his face, a rage took hold of Allister and he drew the longsword from Jochim’s fallen body and cut the brigands head off. His remaining comrades were stunned and did not know what to do. Allister surrendered himself to the units commander and was taken into custody.
On the day he was to take his vows he instead stood at tribunal, and was judged not guilty of murder, because the brigand would have been put to the sword however he was expelled from the order of the Paladin and asked to resign from the Velunian military.
Everything was different after that, his family relations was strained and his relationship with the church was shattered. Allister spent the next three years praying for forgiveness and independently working for the cause of Heironeous. On one of these missions he came upon an elderly man being attacked by Hobgoblins, Tain rushed to the man’s aid and they won the day. The elderly man was terrible wounded, the hobgoblins blades had some type of poison rubbed on them; Tain tended to him the best he could but the man who named himself Braylor, a paladin of Heironeous was dying, the wounds were to severe. Tain carried the knight on his back and marched for three days and nights straight to get Braylor aid, they talked much of the time and Tain told the knight of his shame.
By the time Tain got Braylor to the town, Braylor had fallen into unconsiousness, Tain left Braylor in the care of an adept of Heironeous and waited. Sir Braylor died two nights later, Tain never had the chance to talk to Braylor.
After the funeral, the adept gave Allister a scroll; Braylor had penned it hours before his death. The scroll stated an account of what happened and expressed his dying wish that Allister be allowed to take the cloth and serve as a cleric of Heironeous. The church of Heironeous of course honored the dying request of the fallen paladin.
Allister often works to recruit men to the banner of Heironeous and understands that not all men can live up to the shinning ones ideals, but they can strive to as he does.
