Horace McGinley was born under a bad sign. An orphan from birth, he found himself in a daily battle with life and its peculiar quandaries. After running away from various homes and institutions, Horace found himself on the streets, homeless and hungry. Carving a niche for oneself in such an environment is difficult, but Horace was anything if not determined. After falling in with a group of local street toughs, Horace began to learn the ways of combat and thievery, and even began dabbling in the ways of magick.
With the money from a few successful heists, Horace has booked passage on the IFS Zephyr to Tarant. It's not that life won't give you anything, he thinks, it's just all in the way that you ask.
