Cian was born the only child of a carpenter in a small fishing village. He apprenticed under his father and took over the family business when he was 17 after his father died from sickness. He worked to support his mother and kept food on the table by building and repairing the village’s fishing boats. A year later he met the love of his life Caera, a farmer’s daughter. They were soon married and had a son named Ruarc. Three years later while Cian was out chopping down trees in the forest to build a new boat the town was attacked by a large group of bandits? who killed the inhabitants and burned the homes. By the time Cian saw the smoke and made it back to the village the bandits? had left and he found his wife dead and small son beheaded.

Devastated Cian wandered the countryside for many years before being taken in by a small monastery. In the monastery he found peace in religion and served the monks as a carpenter. After a few years they offered Cian something else, a chance to be a sword of light in a dark and conflicted world. Shortly thereafter he began intensive combat training. With this new knowledge and ability he sought a place where he could help those in need and make a difference.

Nine years later Cian came to Amstern and sought a P.I. license. He rented a small office and set up his shop. To supplement his income he continued his carpentry business. Most of the P.I. cases he took on where pro bono and consisted of him hunting down murders and rapists. A practical and passionate man, Cian often never let the criminals make it as far as a trial.

Possessions: A very small run down and sparse apartment that only contains the basic necessities. A small dingy office with a receptionist’s desk in front, his desk and two chairs in an adjoining room, and a modest space in back for his carpentry business. He also has a beat up pickup truck for the deliveries of the chests, armoires, and other furniture he makes.

How do you know Charles Hurst?: Hurst has used Cian’s P.I. services in the past. Hurst has also bought a number of furniture pieces from Cian.
