Faithful paladin of Bahamut with a troubled past.
A member of the prestigious, if controversial, Order of the Platinum Talons.
As an orphaned waif, Erwain lived from one meal to the next not knowing how much longer his life would last on the cruel streets of Impiltur. There, he was found by a high-ranking, but controversial, member of the Order of the Platinum Talons and taken on as his squire. He quickly rose through the ranks of the initiates to become a fully ordained Paladin of the Order, joining and sometimes leading campaigns to rid the land of evils. It was on just such a mission, led by his mentor, that Erwain began to question the zealotry of the Talons, as the questionable actions of his group led to morally suspect routing of an innocent group.
This incident was all Erwain’s mentor’s enemies needed to oust him from the order and shun him from their ranks. The detrimental mark on Erwain’s record – guilt by association – saw him plummet through the ranks of the order, ending up in a minor functionary position, a mere shadow of his former promising future.
Erwain has taken it upon himself to embark on a Penance Quest to clear his name, and, he hopes, the name of his mentor, by quelling a great evil to prove to his order — and to himself — once and for all his dedication to Justice, Honor, and Good.
