Mathew Feris Silverbow, preferring to go by Feris, was the second son born to Edward Damodred Silverbow and Moraine Renoux in the Free City of Greyhawk. His parents ran a merchant shop in the city that provided them a respectable stand of living, with none of them left wanting. Feris and his brother, Adrian Maeglin, got along fairly well, despite their having vastly different interests. Adrian took an interest in more intellectual and mercantile of skills, spending his time assisting his father in the shop. Feris on the other hand, took an interest in more outdoorsy pursuits, spending his time hunting and exploring outside the city.
During this time the two learned much from various tutors that their father had acquired for them. Edward and Moraine worried about Feris’ safety while exploring outdoors, so they sought someone to keep Feris safe. After some looking, they found an orphan child named Sven, who was eager to have the security the money would allow. Feris, who at first was very put off by Sven’s appearance, found Sven to be a capable protector and friend.
Shortly after turning 19, Feris, who was now a fair shot with a bow and wanting to see more of the world, decided to join his father’s caravan guard, where he got to put to use the skills that he had learned playing in the woods around Greyhawk. While Feris loved the freedom that he got for this position, while Edward loved that he could finally fully trust a member of his guard.
Feris continued to work on the caravans, guarding his family’s investments and returns and exploring the country sides and towns. During this time, Feris’ skills quickly stood out as far and away better than those of the other guards, gaining him their respect and the position of head guard.
Recently the family and other lesser merchant houses, got a large order of supplies to be shipped to several towns to the west, ending in a town called Desolace.
The family pulled together much of their gold in order to purchase the supplies that were required as well as to sufficiently equip Feris, Sven and a few other guards. Once ready, the caravan slowly made its way toward Desolace with little difficulties, until it was close to 2 days away.
The caravan, having stopped for the evening, was preparing the day’s meal when the sounds of movement were heard off in the distance. As the guards and drivers prepared for what they thought were the usual brigands and bandits, they quickly discovered how wrong they were as monstrous beings stepped into the dwindling light.
After a brief fight against overwhelming numbers, Feris and the others had no choice but to flee. Several of the drivers attempted to flee on their wagons, but the monsters quickly caught up with these wagons, killing those inside. Only through the use of all the guards skills and a large amount of luck, did Feris, Sven, and a few others managed to escape. Feris and the others made their way to the nearest town, where they encountered those of the
Hieronious and Pelorian orders, who informed them of what was occurring in the area and escorted them to Desolace.
