Bio:

Is a native citizen of Sheba, on the continent of Gondwana.
He was born to a retired Hero of some renown in Sheba.
At a young age, he saw his older brother executed for treason. His father made him watch in order to make a point about loyalty and justice.
When war came, things got desperate. Only the truly venerable were spared the draft, and as a result, he lost the rest of his family to battles and raids.
He himself got a scar down the length of his left arm from the battles before things settled down.

After losing what remained of his family, he felt that it was time to go abroad for a while. During his travels, he made enemies with Hafsah of Khemit and the mercenary band led by Etor the Glib. Hafsah found out by some means that Cassander was to be her doom, and is now taking preemptive measures to ensure that he is taken out before he can fulfill that fate. She is deathly afraid of being physically near him, so she prefers to work with others to achieve her means rather than face him directly. Etor, on the other hand, had his tongue ripped out in a particularly brutal battle that Cassander took part in.

After all of this, he decided that it would be prudent to return to Sheba for a while in order to rest and recover. During this time, he took up the practice of the magical arts again. This went rather well for a time, with the exception of one magical accident that cost him an eye. Also during this time, his work caught the eye of a Veddan prince on a diplomatic mission. They became close during this time, and before the prince left for his homelans, he left one of his prize steeds with Cassander as a gift.

Enemy – 2, Etor the Glib
