I am the second son of Bernard Kafka, a respected and moderately wealthy merchant. My family (I have an older brother, Johannes, and younger sisters Marianne and Danielle) lived in Ummenbach, a small town in Wissenland shadowed by the Black Mountains. My father made his name and fortune by managing to establish a trade pact with the dwarves in the nearby hold of Khazid Hafak.
Our world turned upside down when our father was murdered – I cannot recite the details now – perhaps someday. Suffice it to say I have reason to believe dark forces are behind his murder. I have traveled to Wolfenburg to seek more information in my quest to avenge my father’s death.
