Wald could be described as non-remarkable in every way. Sure he has a certain charm to him, but he’s not one of the brightest minds. A fact that his parents, both wizards, much resented for their son seemed to have absolutely no aptitude whatsoever for the arcane arts. So they did the next best thing, they enrolled him into the priesthood of their patron god Ioun. As a child he had the occasional dream of finding lost treasures or hidden temples, much like the heroes of old, but as he entered the church at the age of 8 it was quickly stomped out by their brainwashing doctrines. His retention for historical facts was limited to remembering feats of some of the major heroes, which made him unsuited as an educator. Fortunately for Wald, he was much better at performing the healing rituals as the only other career path left was that of janitor.
Taking care of the sick has its risks and on his 20th birthday, he became severely ill. Hovering on death’s door for nearly a week, Wald’s mind was stuck in a delirium in which he saw the heroes of ages past fighting glorious battles, he explored ancient ruins and discovered treasures untouched for millennia. As he regained consciousness, Wald thought he heard a voice speaking in a strange language, that he somehow understood. The disembodied voice said: “Awake now and seek out that which is about to change, for the Age of Complacence has come to an end. Beware, for His followers will be watching you…”
The other priests were baffled that none of their healing rituals were able to cure him, but they dismissed his story as nothing but feverish dreams. For 12 years Wald’s sense of curiosity had disappeared, but now the floodgates had been opened and his daily menial tasks would no longer satisfy him.
