Well here's the story.
I wasn't always known as Finkelidiator Marcoqsiade, my real name is in fact Gus Greensleeves. I grew up as a Berry farmer in the neverwinter wood. We were a small village removed from the lands of the King at the time. I remember distinctly what she looked like, blonde hair, pointy ears, and mellow skin. The princess and her entourage came thru our village merely by happenstance. I guess they were bird watching at the time. I instantly fell in love with her. Of course I of un-noble birth did not stand a chance. Despite that, I felt a longing for her.
Things would change though. I met a witch and she told me how to go about it. With some ingredients and luck, we were able to change my appearance. Making me much stronger and a bit nobler. I went of in search of adventures. The only way to win the lady's heart, was to become a great hero and that is exactly what I did with my new found strength.
I fought and killed many great beasts, including Minotaur’s and Manticores.
With a few bribes, I was able to have some bards sing tales of me. Then it was just a matter of winning her heart. The ground work was laid.
In the tales the bard’s sang I was known as the “Hero of Neverwinter”.
In reality I was always be Gus….
She gave birth to the real. Finkelidiator Marcoqsiade the first. Hence the point five.
