Red, Dead, and Loving It
Harkas Kormallis, Champion of Tyr
Born to Lord Helm I Kormallis, son of Lord Drakon Kormallis who founded their noble house in Waterdeep. Brother to Lord Helm II Kormallis, known as 'the Torturer', and to Cyrin Kormallis.
The middle brother of a Waterdhavian noble family, Harkas was always at odds with his elder brother. The initial gulf was a gulf of years, about 10 to be exact. Because of this, the younger brother had no experience of the dark past of the Kormallis family. Rumours concerning his family dealing in slave trading and other unsavoury practises were unscroupsly denied in public, and in private they were shameful secrets of dark embarassment.
The young Hasker grew to have no love for his family and it's cruelty, shunning even his house arms for the meaning implied within. Hasker preffered the company of priests and holy men, looking to them for guidance about the way men should live. Hasker arrived at the conclusion that his family had built their wealth, not incruelty but injustice. The injustice that the powerful wreak upon the weak. Such thinking of might maketh right was all his brother Helm stood for. Hasker began to see his place as nobility and his birth within it over his fellow man as an injustice and began to forever more shun the company of nobles of all stripes.
As the years went by his fanatical love of justice and in particular Tyr reached it's zenith. He became an Inquisitor of the faith, seeking to find injustice
Consort to Duchess Bronwen of Daggerford
A zealous man in religion is pre-eminently a man of one thing. It is not enough to say that he is earnest, hearty, uncompromising, thorough-going, whole-hearted, fervent in spirit. He sees one thing, he cares for one thing, he lives for one thing, he is swallowed-up in one thing — and that one thing is to please God.
