Personality:

Dak'nahlan is a kind man who enjoys to talk about the sport of hunting and wine tasting... or at least that's the way he portrays himself at first. Under that mask, there is a cold face that has seen more than one death in his life. He doesn't talk much as a thief, "keep it clean and keep it quiet" he always says. But he just isn't another pickpocket you find off the street. His intellect is his strength, always making his way by planning things out before going in for a job. Serious most of the time, and that's his good side.

Backstory:

Dak'nahlan started off as a young farmer's son. So very innocent. So very heart-warming. His father and his mother were the only family he seemed to have and he wouldn't have it any other way. One night however, that changed for him. The 17th of Kareda (or February), it was a clear night sky outside and Dak's mother was at the mill, finishing a few sewings she was creating when all of a sudden a knife was met to her throat in the dark. Unfortunately, Dak'nahlan saw the entire thing from his house window. He ran shouting for his father down the house's hallways when Dak's father busted through his bedroom door with a bandit pressing a dagger towards the father's neck. The almost elderly father gets up and knocks out the attacker. He hands his son a key and tells him to find the symbol inscribed on it with his horse to New Pavis. The son jumped out the back door as he began to hear the shouts of near the front of his house. He grabbed his steed and ran to the safety of New Pavis as he saw his house burst into flames.

A few days later, after coming up with a job as the librarian, he came up with a book in the restricted section of the library. That book displayed a symbol that he had long forgotten... until now. He followed the books secret codes and puzzling riddles until he came up with the Thieves Sanctuary.

It's entrance was disguised as a sarcophagus in the town's cemetery. He cracked opened the lid and went inside the dark and macabre looking atmosphere of the tomb. He took some flint and lit a nearby extinguished torch. The room lit and showed a cascading staircase that lead to a large cave. The cave hadn't been touched in years, as it was cold to enter in. As he went on further, he saw a manikin wearing a suit of shrouded armor. Some small voice in the back of his head told him to wear the armor. So he grasped it...

So begins...

Sitting at the edge of the bar in my fine clothing, I leaned around to see have heavy everyone's pockets were hanging. Most of the people here were light on coin and would often spend it all on drinking, but there was a particular man at the table on the other side of me that left his coin purse outside of his pocket. It was quite a large sum, but I didn't need to go for it so soon. The guard at the doors was spying on everyone in the room, me especially. I ordered another round of mead and the bartender brought me another bottle.

*One of the guards at the gate stated, "Alright there... Oh my. Is it true? The eater of souls?" The other guard shouted back to the first guard, "It doesn't matter, he can come into the city if he would like."*

*Most of the guards of the guards kept their eyes on Nightmare, holding their swords in hand and staring at him making sure to keep the city safe. Even though most of them were shaking in their boots. I still stayed at the bar and looked out of the window, most of the people leaving at the sight of him including the rich man exiting his table with his sack of gold coins. The bar was mostly clear, me still taking in a bit of my drink and I walked to the window to see the man walking into his apartment building. The man in armor was interesting to me, but the wary guards were sure going to make my job difficult.

I slurred the liquid around in my bottle as the bartender rushes out of the bar, not taking anymore of the circumstances and even left the bar unlocked. I chuckled a bit and shook my head, staring over at the bag of gold under the counter and then looking over at Nightmare, stating, "The Azure Knight... I must say, I'm impressed." I took a bit of my drink and coughed slightly.

"Well causing mass destruction and take the power of a possessed sword might do that to you. But either way, I've seen many things of your appearance. I don't mind." *I looked over at his arm and furrow my brow a bit.* "Anyway, what brought you to Pavis?" *I slid my arm into my coat, just in case he was to jump on me.

I took in a breath a slammed down the rest of my mead, burping a bit as I threw the glass on the wall and stared outside, making sure that there weren't any guards watching. I hopped over the counter and slipped the bag of gold into my fine clothes. As I did so, I looked up at Nightmare and stared. "Y'know, for an eater of souls, you seem more chaotic than your putting on. I mean, just to come here for the dirt of the city..." I explained

"Whoa..." I stated, now staring at the sword. I hopped back over the counter and suggested, "It must have heard something that it liked." I was done perusing around the pub and I eventually said, "It doesn't seem like you have a place to stay. I got room at my home if you need a place to rest your head.

"Well... not necessarily. But it beats you having to be kicked out by every inn here." I stated opening up the door as there was a guard at it. "Sir, good evening to ya." I greeted the guard at the door, tipping my head in salutations.

The guard kept his sword drawn and planned to follow, but he would rather stay, not trying to get involved with an monstrosity. A small child quickly walked behind the man, slipping his hand across his belt and swiping his coin purse, sprinting off. "Ah... they grow up so fast." I said, staring at the kid as he ran past us and the guard soon followed behind.

I furrowed my brows a bit as the child was taken away to the manor at the top of the hill. We kept on down the wall and in a few minutes of walking through the forest, I turned down a small dirt road that led to a cave. I entered inside being sure not to disturb my... security system.

On the inside there were 3 bears, all snoozing the night away as I stared carefully at the ground.

"Yerkshire Manor. That's where the ruler of the city resides. I would give him a title but he isn't really 'Title' worthy. Most call him a king and others call him a jester, making harsh decisions one day and saving the city the next. At least that's what I hear. He never goes into town." I walked to the back of the cave and there lied a few beds

I breathed out and sorted through my chest that was filled with multiple accounts of gems, gold coins and other expensive keep-sakes. "I-I wouldn't know anything about that... but I don't believe stealing a leader's soul would get you a good record here." *I tried to stuff the bag into the chest but there wasn't any room to be stuffed.* I sighed and said, "The bad thing about stolen items is you can't sell them just on any market."

"Uhp... where are you going?" I asked, too soft for him to hear apparently as he walked out into the city. I rolled my eyes and said, "Oh, the things I go through." I pulled up the hood and mask that is resting on my neck to my face before becoming barely void of visibility.

I slinked past the Nightmare and looked up ahead at the city, the rich man that I saw earlier coming out of his house and looking at the ground... "Ey, you there! What are you doing with my money?" He shouted from across the lot. "Oh no..." I stated, smacking my forehead.
