Seven Saints of Talis
“Hack” Zuriel Lek was born to the coupling of a small caravan of travelling Wastelanders. It was a rough life, made rougher when around the age of 5 a devastating attack of raiders hit the small band and killed or enslaved almost everyone. Hack had hid from the attack in a near-by outcropping of rocks when he had been returning with one of the older kids with the night’s cooking water. Hack silently watched nearly the whole thing take place. He was brave, as his father had taught him, when a stray shot killed the boy next to him. In the end, it was just him that was left there. Being near-enough a small oasis, Hack lived off the land there as he had been taught, eating the fruit and hunting the smaller animals.
After a while, he had grown into a strong, lean young man, and packing all he could carry, he began to wander the wastes, looking for some place to settle, as the oasis had all but run dry. After what seemed like a countless age, Hack was caught stealing food from a farm in the settlement of Celestial Hills. His story, what could be understood of it, warmed the heart of a local family who took him in. They taught him how to read and write(as practice, Hack has kept a journal), and helped him into his trade with the Adeptus Arbites.
Hack has gained a reputation through the years of being a fair, easy-going kind of fellow, moving in a thoughtful manner most times, though not one to be crossed at all. While the faces and names of his dead caravan and those responsible have long faded from his memory, he is somewhat less than tolerant of raiders and slavers.
