Orik Vancaskerkin, a not-so-lucky professional soldier, landed himself into some trouble in his hometown of Riddleport when he killed an alchemist for having sold him a counterfeit elixir of love which he had intended to use upon a tiefling prostitute named Lavender Lil. As that alchemist was the brother of Clegg Zincher, one of Riddleport's powerful crime lords, Orik was forced to leave town, never to return. His journeys eventually took him to Magnimar, where he encountered a small bandit group led by the fallen aasimar Nualia Tobyn and became a hired mercenary for that group.[1]


Orik's father is Saul Vancaskerkin and his uncle is Damon Vancaskerkin. He also has a younger brother named Verik.[2]
