background questions

For the most part your background can be up to you, except for a few key points.

1) At some point during the rule of Jagar Tharn (which ended in 3E 399, 6 years ago), you helped someone close to the emperor. Whether a son, an important noble or whoever is up to you. How you helped them was up to you. You could have helped them escape from bounty hunters and said your goodbyes, or you could have sheltered them for several months or even years. Its up to you.

2) Sometime after Jagar Tharn was over thrown, the emperor and his important person seek you out. They reward you for your service to the emperor, and you become a close friend. Under cover of darkness you are secretly initiated into a mostly secret society known as the “Blades”, which are there to serve the emperor. Whether you really provided any services or not during the last few years is up to you, though they would have been in secret, you are an unknown member. Many agents live normal lives and just do light reconnaissance.

3) And obviously you were picked for this mission.
