Iron Kingdoms 3.5
The Unluckiest Man You'll Ever Meet
Prior to birth, his parents had chosen to give their son his father’s enchanted oak quarterstaff that can never break. Being chaotic neutral, they decided to give him a stupid name to balance out this act of charity. His luck being unnaturally low, he was accidentally left behind by his parents during their travels, with both losing their memories of him shortly afterwards due to a very unluckily cast spell by a sorcerer falling from a nearby tree. Abandoned at an age too young to remember his parents’ names and appearance, Bark traveled through the world searching for adventures to sate his naturally low attention span. His unluckiness caused many of his adventures to go sour, giving him a very jaded sense of the world, which in turn caused him to have a fairly odd sense of humor that most others found unnerving. Despite his high charisma, this combined with his funny sounding name cause people to avoid and make fun of him, making him a bit of a social pariah if he stays in one place too long. Rather than deal with the people of the world, which he does not hold in high regard, he has traveled through the wilderness for most of his life with his wolf animal companion Meow, whom his parents also named.
