Nigel was born from the coupling of a beautiful elf female and a local sailor. For him, his spirit and the sea are inseperable, and he always imagined that one day he would join his father as a sailor. This only changed when one night he awoke to find his seaside metropolis under attack by an orc raiding ship, finding his mother missing and his father slain.
This event single handedly changed his life, leading him to pursue life as a combatant, using his skills garnered over years along the coast to protect the community he loves. His companion in this is the orc Laf-Laf, a remnant of a raiding party, as well as his uncle Kathier, who came to the metropolis to support his nephew, though their views vary widely.
One day he hopes to find his mothers whereabouts, which he believes will require strength in arms. So he does what he must to develop his skills in the hope he might one day be reunited with her.
