Bio:

Born in to a wealthy family in 582 AR. Raised in the town of Caspia, Armando enjoyed a simple and uneventful childhood. He is the eldest of three brothers. Religion is a tricky subject for Armando. He was raised as a devote member of the Church of Morrow. His father and mother installed in him a much respect for the divine.

At the age of sixteen he was discovered to have the Gift. For six year he trained within the Llael Warcaster’s academy. He learned basic tactics, leadership, weapon use, however most of his time he spent in the academy’s arcane library. Armando was intrigued by the mechanics of spellcraft, and wanted to learn all he could. His training was cut short however by the onset of the Llael war in 604 AR.

He left the academy and headed back to Caspia. It was during these travels he met a women that changed his life and view on magic. Gabrielle Rice was a Thamarite, she opened Armando’s eyes to the power of necromantic magic.

Once back in Caspia Gabrielle continued to teach Armando Thamar’s way, while being sure to keep it secret from the eyes of others. During their years together they also fell in love. The war between Caspia and Sul made a great cover for their arts.

In 607 AR The Cygnaran siege of Sul became broken. Sul-Menites counted with an assault on Caspia, resulting in the near-capture of the Cygnaran capital before the death of Hierarch Garrick Voyle. Armando and Cabrielle left Caspia in 608 AR and headed to met an old friend of the Baxter family in Point Bourne. The war wasn’t going that good for Llael and Northern Cygnaran forces. With the high amount of casualties, refugees from Llael, and broken Cygnaran forces retreating from Northguard, it seemed a prefect place to practice the dark arts.

The new year brings a tense cease-fire along the Dragon’s Tongue River between Khador and Cygnar, while a similar cessation of hostilities holds between the garrisons of Caspia and Sul. Increased fortifications are erected along borderlands between Khador, Cygnar, and Ord.
