Back Story: Drake's rise to notoriety near southern coastal regions of Gialpha began when he served humbly as a cabin boy while an orphan to support himself. He was employed on the prestigious Sol Trading Company's flagship Complacent based out of the province of Sunrage. While on a route that carried cargo from the tip of Whitebeach to Meadhold pirates attacked. The Bloodcoast Corsairs, as they would later be known as, led by Captain Shaltear would gain reputation for having successfully attacked and robbed an STC trading fleet. Amidst the fighting, Shaltear's first mate Boarne found the boy Drake and took him in to be raised a privateer.

Drake was essentially raised on the sea. Though he had learned a thing or two while aboard the Complacent, he had only recently been employed by the STC when the Corsairs attacked. Having no home to return to and no family to have known, the pirates of the Bloodcoast Corsairs quickly became his friends and family. Raised in their ways since he was 7, life on the coast of southern Gialpha was all he had known. The Bloodcoast Corsairs had managed to attack several other trading ships of various different companies as Drake grew older and began to help more and more. As the Corsairs gained reputation, private companies and marketing rivals soon sought their services to obstruct the economical efforts of competing services. Thus the Bloodcoast Corsairs became privateers, and feared ones at that.

Unfortunately the rise to infamy draws the attention of governmental authority as well. The Provinces of Whitebeach, Sunrage, Meadhold, and Bloodcoast grew tired of the rise in terror across their coasts. Bounties begun to spring up for individual members of the Corsairs to include Captain Shaltear, Boarne, and Drake himself. Other privateers, who were once thought friends, now began attacking the Bloodcoast Corsair's Sanguine Fleet. The bounties began to become exorbitant as the Corsairs got away each time, but not without casualties. Two years later, shortly after Drake had turned 25, a small fleet sanctioned by the major trading companies of Gialpha's southern hemisphere made up of their own escort ships and employed privateers cornered and destroyed the Sanguine Fleet. Few escaped, many died, and most were captured, tried, and imprisoned.

Drake, 27 years of age, now walks the mainland of Gialpha a disgraced pirate in secret. He often pursues mercenary work as a cheap imitation of his once glorious buccaneering career.

So begins...

Barrelling towards the wild bull, Alexander was taken completely by surprise when he felt a hitherto unseen projectile slam into him like a sack of potatoes. While the force of the blow did not stop him outright, it did stagger him enough that his charge veered off course, only able to strike a glancing blow at the Therian, if that.

Briefly glancing round to try and see what on earth had hit him, the sky knight saw that Nyx was now up and about and trying to subdue the minotaur despite breaking her leg mere minutes ago. The dark elf was also accompanied by a robed Avian woman. Latecomer to the bounty or not, the extra help was most welcome.

The winged maiden landed a most palpable hit on the Therian's head, and Alexander hefted his greatsword in preparation for making a killing blow when the bull fell to his knees, covering his face and tugging at one horn. Confusion overrode anger as Alexander held back, though he didn't dare relax his stance. As had only recently been proven, even a momentary lapse in concentration can prove fatal.

Vanarak's mind was in a complete uproar. What was he supposed to do!? His thoughts melded with each other. Would they try to kill him? Should he let them? And then that bubbling rage inside him. Vanarak knew that even if he was to decide on letting the people kill him then his mad part would take control. He would fight to survive, no matter what. He unconsciously reached towards the axe, receiving killing glances from both Drake and Alexander. He muttered a quiet apology as his hands grasped the axe. So this is how it's supposed to be?

His eyes focused, there was more than his attackers. His eyes suddenly fixating on the small woman approaching him, Tikal. His left hand still partly covering his face as she begun to talk with him. Vanny? Vanarak was about to release a small chuckle as the grip on his axe was reminded. The bubbling inside his chest feeling like a volcano just about to explode. He hefted the axe upwards, The visage of Tikal was growing blurry, everything turning slightly reddish.

A gentle tune penetrated his mind. His head was completely blank, just that lone tune wandering throughout him. It was... soothing. Just before everything blew, he had no control of his arm as he overhead swung it directly infront of him with enough power to jam it into the ground. Missing Tikal with a few centimeters.

Vanarak loosened the grip on his axe falling backwards. Sitting himself down in the snow. His head hanging lowly downwards, like a shamed animal. His mind was gently reforming his thoughts. The soft tune working its way throughout him. Vanarak's first thought was the simple one that he had never felt more relaxed.

He wanted to thank Tikal, He wanted to check on the girl. He wanted to apologize to the warriors and he wanted to act imposing to the Avian who had hit him. But he really couldn't attempt to move. And in all honestly, that was rather nice.
