As a baby, the Raider was abandoned by his parents down a river. His fate was almost sealed until he was saved by some passing mountain bandits. The bandits had no use for an infant and planned to sell him off, but some took pity on the boy and decided to raise him as a bandit. He grew to be a reckless but cunning boy, showing great talent in the ways of a thief.
But Raider preferred adventure over thievery. In his youth he stumbled upon a magical tome containing some strange text. It took him years to decipher enough of the text to realize the book contained the locations of numerous lost magical treasures. When Raider reached adulthood, he decided to leave the bandit clan and become a treasure hunter. If there are treasures to be found, the Raider is never far behind.
