Alaric and his sister were born in the small northern city of Tellamir. Not particularly famed for anything of not nor really thought of as important, Tellamir is a small trading port on the Gulf of Liad. Neither Alaric nor his sister ever met his parents, both of the twins being dropped off as babies at a local orphanage.
There they were raised until the age of nine. The orphanage that they grew up in was considered a workhouse, and from an incredibly young age both Alaric and his sister were forced into a number of dangerous and near deadly job. Eventually Alaric tired of this life, and he convinced his sister to run away from the Orphanage.
Through the next three years the Twins lived as street-Urchins, stealing, living in hovels, and generally doing their best to survive.
It was during this time that the two Urchins stole from the wrong man; a Pariah Templar.
The man was dressed in fine armor and a cloak, and Alaric thought that he would carry riches upon him. Unfortunately for the young boy, the man had better reactions than him and as he went for the Templar's purse the soldier caught him by the arm. It was not long before Alaric's sister tried to save him, and in the effort was quickly caught herself.
Luckily for the Twins, the Templar took pity on them. He saw something within the Urchins, and thus asked them if they would like to become something greater than themselves. Though Alaric was hesitant, his sister eventually convinced him.
The two were shipped off to the Ebon Bay, and there they would train to become Pariah Templar just like the man who had caught them.
Though the training was absolutely brutal, and the final initiation even more so, both Alaric and his sister managed to pass the trials. It took them both more than a decade, but both came out as stronger and better people. They now sternly follow along the path of the Pariah's, doing their best to act the part they had been brought up in.
