Avshar Xin al-Kavass is the illegitimate son of Shara Kavass, the Matriarch of the noble Keleshite Kavass family, and her consort/bodyguard Xin Chao; a martial arts master from Tian. The Kavass family established itself in New Stetven several generations ago over some ‘minor’ disputes with a rival clan back in the Diamond Empire. The Kavass family ingratiated itself at the time with House Rogarvia, as they were able to facilitate exotic imports from the Diamond Empire due to the contacts they still had there. However, in the 9 years since the Rogarvias disappeared, the fortunes of House Kavass had began to slip, and while still wealthy, the Matriarch finally decided that she could no longer support her illegitimate son. Avshar was not completely unprepared for the rigors of the world as he had been trained by his father in the principles and maneuvers of the martial arts of Tian. However, as Xin Chao had died defending a merchant ship from bandits several years before, Avshar had no place to go to. Thus it was that Avshar, with only his favorite bow and a few other trinkets of his former life, was sent out into the world to make a name for himself, his mother giving him a stylized Kavass signet ring just as he was leaving that was to symbolize all that was left of his family’s love.
Now, having made his way to Rostov and hearing of an expedition to tame the lands that killed his father, Avshar felt compelled to join and prove that bastards can have honor too.
