Fallen paladin of Erastil seeking redemption.
Akiros was born a farmers child in Taldor and his parents wanted nothing more for him than to become a paladin of Erastil. He worked hard and achieved that dream, a month of taking his vows and becoming the town protector he fell in love with a rich merchants wife named Rosilla. The affair ended all too soon when her husband found out. When he threatened divorce she said Akiros had raped her. Furious her husband took her to the template and confronted Akiros. The young paladin was flabbergasted, but then Rosilla took it too far by spitting on him and publicly denounching him as a rapist, a never before felt rage woke in Akiros heart and he struck her with a mighty blow, killing her. As she fell he realized that his life as a paladin was over and turned to her husband and killed him as well, with the temple guards still in shock he ran. Over the years he continued traveling north living as a bandit, a vagabond, and a criminal.
As he arrived at the Stolen Lands he heard of the Stag Lord and unsure of what to do with his life he became the second in command of the stag lords forces. This also didn’t help fill the emptiness inside of himself, so he was waiting for a chance to redeem himself.
