Mixed background

Alcemides is a somewhat strange man, having both Nemedian and darker, sinister features. He seems home at in the forest and follows strange rules of conduct others don’t seem to understand. The reason is simple – he is half-pict. His mother was imprisoned by pict raiders of the Mongoose clan in northeast Aquilonia and eventually taken as a wife. Alcemides grew among the Picts, but after his father’s death, his mother decided to return to Nemedia and made her young son come along. Alcemides is a conflicting mix of savagery and civilization, as even though the Pict has left the forest, the forest will never leave the Pict. In the group, he is just looking for a way to prove himself and find adventure.

Unorthodox procedures

His body hardened by rough life, Alchemides has broad shoulders and steely build able to withstand punishment that would kill a lesser man five times over. Many foes have underestimated Alcemides as a boisterous fool – and later expired with a broken face or a sword sheathed in their throat.
