Feadog Mhor Character in Abios | World Anvil

Feadog Mhor

Panflute Entertainer Extraordinaire Feadog Mhor

Written by Kel-El.  
I am from the town of Leeside on the main island of the Gorgon Archipelago, the Isle of Giard, which is part of the Kingdom of Otharia. I grew up learning music from my parents, Gebyrnh and Bretha, and have always been performing since as long as I can remember. My dream as a young child was to write songs and sing the stories of Heroes and their epic adventures.
I moved to the Capital City of Bayvale when I turned 17, determined to hit the jackpot with the intention of bankrolling my search for an inspiring person or group that I could base my songs from. My plan, and hope, was to become a famous musician throughout Abios, and perhaps the world. I had grown up playing games of chance with my friends on the Isle of Giard, and had a knack for them. So, I thought I could win big at the high-stakes casinos in Bayvale. I brought my life savings with me; everything I had earned from playing the Lyre in a band at birthday parties, consummation celebrations, even a gathering in the name of Gargauth (which was pretty scary).
I was doing pretty well at earning money in the casinos, and had a job playing for the noble patrons at a restaurant within one of the more elegant casinos called The Coronal. One day, however, my luck ran out. I thought I had a sure win in a game of “Liar’s Dice”, and placed nearly all I had in the pot. But the dice didn’t roll my way, and I lost everything.
I was prepared to return home as a failure when an old childhood friend of mine named Jesam Ceiho came into the Casino I worked at. Jesam was a talented flute player, and we were the best of friends and in the same musical group up until his family moved to the city of Valmere when we were young. He mentioned he had run away and came to Bayvale about 5 years ago, and has been living on the streets since. He had to learn to survive, and in order to do so, he became a skilled grifter. Since I was essentially out of coin, we decided to team up, and he taught me everything he knew. At first, I didn’t like cheating people out of their hard-earned gold, but after a while, it became exciting. Besides, the people of Bayvale had enough to share with us, and were all corrupt themselves. What truly amazed me was the fact that Jesam knew magic! He taught me how to do many things, from illusionary spells to how to make games of chance become less about chance (if you catch my meaning). Jesam gave me a Pan Flute and taught me how to use it as the source of my very own magical abilities. He had an old textbook from when he was a part of the Bard College of Valmere, which I was able to glean a few minor spells from. We began to make quite a profit swindling and hustling unsuspecting travelers out of their silver and gold by taking on new personas each time. It was exciting, and every wager...every con, was exhilarating. We got into trouble a few times, but we were always able to get out of it using our charm and misdirection.
My bankroll was slowly and surely beginning to accrue. I probably had more than enough to go on my search to fulfill the childhood dream that brought me to Bayvale, but I was having far too much fun running with Jesam and didn’t want to stop. Everywhere I went, I was looking for an angle to wager and inevitably put the odds in my favor. Even if there was not way to cheat, I was always up for a gamble.
A few weeks ago, however, everything changed once again. I knew better than to try and cheat a surly fellow named Doriano Reikon, also known as ‘The Hatchet’, who was known as a mercenary that also ran with some of the raiding parties from Aredar. But, I saw a chance to make a lot of coin. Long story short, I got caught and couldn’t talk my way out of it. I was able to get away, but they tracked me down at home. Jesam and I both fled, but we got seperated in the chaos. There was no time to grab the treasure hoard we had hidden in the walls of our meager apartment, or the Lyre I’ve had since I was a child. Luckily, I had my travel pack, which had some disguise kits, the old textbook from the Bard College, my “special card deck”, a meager amount of coin, and the Pan Flute Jesam had given me. I waited at our usual post-con rendezvous location for about a day waiting for Jesam to arrive….but he never came.
I knew I had to get out of town, so I donned a false identity and snuck into the port of Bayvale where I was able to secure passage aboard a cargo ship as Feadog Mhor, Pan Flute Entertainer Extraordinaire. It was the first, and only, ship that agreed to take me on free of charge. Their only stipulation was that I would play and perform for the crew during evening meals. The Captain, a female Wood Elf named Enwen Adrel, seemed as if she understood my need to leave, and didn’t press the issue. I didn’t even know, or care, where her ship named The Anellas was destined. I just needed to get away from Bayvale.
I’m not sure of the fate of Jesam, whether he is alive or dead,...or worse: taken as a slave by ‘The Hatchet’. I couldn’t risk sticking around Bayvale any longer, and didn’t want to risk going home and having them follow me there. I’ve decided I need to stay away from the Kingdom of Otharia for a while, until Doriano and his crew forget about the 10 platinum I cheated from them using my trick dice….which they now possessed.
