Arhol Pinion is a sellsword currently based in Marsheusis. He is an arrogant man with a dark sense of humour. He claims to have no fear of death, and his actions often lend credence to this boast.
He is tall and handsome with a strong jaw and floppy blonde hair.
Arhol was born in a small community on the outskirts of Bethelgane in the province of Naiju. His father was an abusive drunk, and Arhol often encouraged his mother to flee with him, though she refused.
Arhol dedicated his time to training with a sword, growing strong and fit. His aim was to kill his father, but one night, the man fell from a bridge in a drunken stupor, and broke his neck before Arhol had the chance to commit patricide.
His mother was a broken woman, and unable to comfort her, he fled. Since that time, Arhol has travelled the country as a sword for hire, returning to Bethelgane only after its destruction at the hands of Fyrsobarthe. He does not know whether his mother survived the attack.
