Born Firasa deVa Sian, S’ym had as hard a life as you can imagine for a half-orc. His mother, a mage, was kidnapped and held prisoner for years by an Orcish warlord. S’ym is the by product of that internment.
S’ym started out life as a Fighter/assassin. His first adventuring group was strongly displeased with his choices and eventually, he felt that he did not have to choose the path of an assassin. Instead he became an expert swordsman with the long sword. He adventured as a member of the Iuzbane and was present at all their most famour conflicts with Iuz including his final fight to the death. Iuz however did have his revenge by using his spittle attack to strike S’ym in the face and withering him to death.
Firasa Deva Sian is an Incredible large-forces combat tactician and swordsman. Has three levels of Assassin that he no longer advances in but is still capable of using. Had a strong dislike for orcs in his youth but has since overcome that hatred. He leads the rebel force army in the Shield Lands near Amundfort and was mostly responsible for the Shield Lands resisting subjugation by the forces of Iuz. He was supported via surreptitious means by the Oligarchy of Greyhawk. Additionally, the head of the Camera Guild in Greyhawk, Eljay, is a long-time friend sent personal monies and equpment via a Malta’s Teleport Pattern.
S’ym is a master chessplayer and extremely intelligent.
S’ym’s best friend and confident used to be Maxximillian Thornblade. After his first reincarnation, Sym partnered with a team lead by Maxx of dubious nature called the Fear Masters. They worked for the forces of Iuz as mercenaries but mainly worked for themselves.
