Religion: Highfather (?)
Zerek grew up as an orphan until he was ten. The powerful wizard known as Veldainos adopted Zerek and taught him the way of magic, and treated him like his own son. Veldainos only lived to teach Zerek a few magical skills, and unfortunatly his spell books had been destroyed during the Mage Wars long ago. When he died, Zerek was young, without friends, a teacher, or even a home (as Veldainos had to leave his home to other to pay off many debts). Zerek felt the part of the orphan again.
Still, his teacher had told him to follow the same path as Malachi Valorous. He found him during a battle and offered his magical help. Malachi agreed, his own wizard fallen in battle, and Zerek has allied himself with the fighter from that point on.
