Wants to stay in Arx
Growing up in a large city (given that there are some?) taught him quite a lot about how to make your own way in this world. From a young age, Faecas was a tinkerer and thief. The thief part is a necessity to growing up alone in a city, but the tinkerer set him apart from the rest of the urchins. In his late teens, one of the local smiths saw the rudimentary gun Faecas had patched together to give him the upper hand and realized that this kid might be worth something if properly trained.
