A Brotherhood Reborn
Viktor von Mohrentz
Lover of Fine Things and Patron of the Arts
Viktor von Mohrentz is a dark-haired, silver-tongued elven noble from the city of Neiren. Growing up surrounded by luxury, Viktor developed a taste for the finer things in life. As a child, Viktor loved music and quickly found he had a talent for playing. He took to the lute especially quickly, to his parents’ dismay.
Under his assumed name, Viktor travelled from town to town, doing odd-jobs and playing music in return for food and lodgings. He carried only what he could hold in his backpack. He gained a reputation among the common people as dependable and hard-working. It didn’t take long for Viktor to get a different kind of reputation. Living in abject poverty changed Viktor’s perception of the world. He felt an overwhelming need to help the less fortunate, or those in danger. He became renowned for his heroic deeds; He felled dangerous monsters, pulled small children from burning buildings, saved kidnapped damsels from bandits (and so on).
When his grandfather died a few years later, Viktor took his share of the inheritance and once again left Neiren, this time leaving his title behind for good. He moved to Algassi, where he bought some property and inherented the most famous and well-known musical venue in the Southern Expanses—the Faladrion. He spent much of his inheritance supporting the local Bardic College and taking aspiring musicians under his wing and acts as a wealthy patron.
A few years later, he was elected as a city councilman and became the city’s first official Cultural Advisor. Since being a city councilman takes up so much time, his mentee, Aria Ponselle, helps run the Faladrion while he is away.
