Born a scion of one of Brevoy's eight major noble families, Kesten was disowned by his father under a cloud of scandal when his affair with a low-born weaver's daughter named Tania became public. Kesten subsequently fled to Restov to serve as a mercenary, eventually volunteering to lead a small group of soldiers to guard Oleg's Trading Post and the South Rostland Road. When he arrived, he made it clear he sought a Varisian named Falgrim Sneeg that he had served with in the past; Sneeg fled the mercenary group for a life of banditry in the Greenbelt after stealing from the group.
