Gar comes from the L'cholan clan of Thargi Swamp, one of the few reptileman clans in the Empire. Raised to be fiercely loyal to his clan, and fierce in combat, he excelled in his schooling, with the single exception of his poor aquatic skills. It's not that he feared the water, he is a reptileman after all, but more that he felt more vulnerable in the water than on dry land. The traditions of his clan ran otherwise. Reptilemen are feared for their abilities in water more than their formidable fighting skills on land. His clan elders, including his shell fathers and mothers, pressured him to embrace their race's aquatic customs, but he resisted. The final straw came when one elder tried to physically force him to train under water. Gar, in a moment of frustration and anger, struck out and killed the elder. He was banished for this offense.
After wandering the southern Empire, an unfortunate cycle began. He would enter a new community and try to find a way to support himself. He would face the endemic discrimination his race suffers, get into arguments and fights with locals, and have to leave in haste, often with no choice, to find yet another new community and suffer the same fate. After a short jail stay in Canigli, waiting for the local magistrate to determine his actions were in self-defense, he finally decided he had two choices. He could either continue on this wandering path and end up in jail, or worse, running from bigotry at every turn, or he could find a way to use his considerable fighting prowess to gain security and gainful employment. He had heard that mercenaries and would-be fighting men of all sorts we welcomed to attempt enlistment in the Empire's legions through a trial ominously called the "Death Test", in the capitol city of Ardonirane. The 'Thorsz treated all in his ranks equal, save for their ability in combat. The choice was obvious to him. He made arrangements to travel to the capitol at once....
