Axandrite Dracodus was born two days before the Feast of the Moon holiday. Minutes later he was able to walk. His mother lived just long enough to see him do so. She was a blue dragonborn and his father was red. Axandrite was born of a purple color which was uncommon and yet rare. The clan sorcerer thought this to be a sign of an ancient prophecy, but without the ancient tomes that are lost, this could be neither confirmed nor denied. His father tried to raise Axandrite as best he could. Taught him hunting and how to craft his own hunting weapons.
The leader of the clan was Nadarr, a green dragonborn, and Sora, copper. They lead Clan Chabbwaaki fairly and openly. It was a mixed tribe and allowed their own and outsiders to come and go freely. Though outsiders were watched carefully. They traveled with weather was too harsh or when bandit activity was too high.
Axandrite's friends that he grew up with were: Spike (Red dragonborn), Balasar (White), Thorin (Blue), and Leo (Copper). They nicknamed Axandrite, Spyro. It is slang in their tongue that translates to, "The Chosen One". The gang was inseparable. Wrote and invented code, planned and acted out scenarios, and went on small adventures into nearby villages.
Two weeks before Axandrite was to turn 15, his father went missing on a hunting trip. He was presumed dead, but no body was recovered. Nadarr conducted a two week search party, but to no avail. Upon Axandrite's 15th birthday, a Coming of Age Ceremony was held for him and his friends. It was a celebration to usher the dragonlings into adulthood. It is also at this point, the dragonborn can choose to stay or leave the tribe to peruse outside interests. Spike and Leo chose to leave and peruse a life of adventuring. Balasar, Thorin, and Axandrite chose to stay.
Couple weeks after the ceremony, a strange merchant came into camp. Bringing with him gadgets and trinkets never before seen. This caught Axandrite's curiosity. He approached the merchant and asked about his wares and the merchant offered to teach him what he knew. With the blessing from Nadarr and Sora, Axandrite left the clan and traveled with the merchant.
They traveled for two months before reaching the city of Waterdeep. The merchant didn't know a whole lot about the gadgets and trinkets. He just sold them, but knew enough. It was here in Waterdeep where Axandrite will learn. He was brought to the Artisian Guild, also known as The Hall of Requirements. Here he was introduced and taught by members of the guild. Axandrite took a strong liking in Smithing and Tinkering.
By the age of 16, he was accepted and made member of the Guild. It was also the time when he met two great Master Artificers. Alistair (Human), and Thoradin (Dwarf) were members of the Hall of Requirements. It wasn't long after that they took Axandrite under their wings and taught him the ways of Artificer. Alistair taught how to fight fair and dirty. Said sometimes fighting fair will just get you killed in a horrible way. Thoradin taught how to build weapons and gadgets and how to use them. They trained Axandrite for three years.
At age 19, Axandrite was gifted a shop out in the Dock District in Waterdeep. It is also when Axandrite dubbed the surname Stark. (Axandrite Dracodus is his Clan name and is referred to as so by his tribe mate. Axandrite Stark is his Guild name and is referred to as so by everyone else in the realm). The shop is still owned by the Guild, but Axandrite was able to name it Stark Inc. Here he built and repaired ships, cannons, and other gadgets. Not soon after Axandrite's business was up and running, Alistair and Thoradin found information of a ancient relic they've been hunting for years. They said a couple months time and they would return…it has been two years.
Age 21…Axandrite begins his adventure.
