The Path to Redemption

Learning his name to be Groban, Lucijan accepted the offer, secretly planning to leave as soon as he was able. Despite this, the two formed a bond over time, spending the years training and performing services as rangers. One day, members of The Thieve's Guild had tracked him down and attempted to kill him. Together, he and Groban fought them off, however, Groban succumbed to his wounds, and passed following the battle. Taking up his mentor's cloak and bow, Lucijan continued on as a ranger, in the hopes of earning redemption.
