Bio:

Shadow is a typical teifling, distrustful of others until they prove friendship or loyaty, where he would return the same recieved. He specialises on cunning and trickery to get through life and combat. Using his stealth to quickly finnish his foes. He values gold, but isnt too greedy about it. He finds the challenge and thrill of his talents more of a reward, but one must eat or pay for the projectiles. He has horns that shape a small beard in jagged edges. His horns on his head are small for teiftlings, angled backwards from just above his brows, flowing along with his spikey red hair resembling dagger points. His eyes are black as the void and he usualy has a bemused smile upon his face.

The young teifling was abandoned by his parents when he was but a toddler. Left to fend for himself in the slums of a metropolis. Learning the hard way about prejudice and untolorance. Surviving in the slums was difficult, since nobody helped the young teifling he learned subtl ways to live. In the dark he stole for food or money. When he matured he stumbled upon a pouch full of rare gems and money, believing it be easy money in the underground auction he placed them there. After a beating by the brutes, he came to know that the pouch had belonged to a influential crime lord. He was forced to flee, since could imagine what they would do to a theifling.

He fled the metropolis and came upon a village in the country, hiding in a shack to avoid the villagers whilst he was passing by. Shadow was found out in his shack by an unlikely visitor, Apparently also freeloader that was to use the shack for cover. Xune the drow and sorceress. He had learned through experience that drows were a special breed, always in their underground kingdom plotting against one another. Their cunning could know no bounds, but when talking to Xune she had been very open and honest… a rare side to her race. She had told Shadow about the other youth of the village, that they had found her and sheltered her.

Upon meeting the others to his contempt a loud dwarf, keen on showing off his peotry skills, tales of heroes aswell as his diverse party skills. A dragonbreed, a race that fough against the teiftling empire long ago, that inveitably ended in both empires crushed. Shadow had spend months in the village, gambling with the youths and of course, winning every time. Though it was a dangerous move to cheat versus Xune as her temper sure did singe his cape. He has had his first glimpse of friendship within this village. Some of the villagers had seen glimpses of him, but they usualy just hurried off because of his infernal traits.

Shadow is very tolerant for a teiftling. He has experience of hard prejudice and racism. Although he tends to ignore minor inconveniences such as hard looks and disproving frowns. He is very untolerant about the subject of his parents abandonment. In the past he was insulted and provoked using his parents abandonment, where he lost controll and nearly killed a man. Generally when interacting with others he does not know he keeps himself neutral. Keeping a smile on his face to lessen the prejudices brought against him. Dragonborns are the hardest to interact with, their pride and heritage usualy bear down upon the wars that teiftlings and dragonborns have had.

When it comes to stealing, it is a habit he has a hard time deciding when to use. He would steal whenever needed but also when he is tempted with slight challenges, where the trouble might be awarded in kind. Though he has set his small rules to himself. Stealing from the poor is completely pointless, they have nothing to offer you. Stealing from crimelords should be avoided, since then he wouldnt know where to sell his stolen good without a thurough bashing. Stealing from the rich is the juiciest targets, they bear wealth as if it grows on trees, and will be plucked like the apple trees by his hand. Shadow has taken odd jobs, of thievery or stealth, where he had to find out some weaknesses in somebodies castle or hidden passages as well as ownership contracts or ornaments.
