At 18 years old, the fire genasi Brucius joined up with his local city’s watchmen. There he excelled at investigating crimes which put him on track for a very promising career in the city watch. However, Brucius soon realized that this career path wasn’t lucrative enough to satisfy his ambitions legitimately. And so he began to take advantage of the perks of being in a position of authority.
Eventually Brucius was caught for his new habit of taking bribes and sentenced to 12 months in prison. Upon Brucius’ release, tired of being pent up and confined, he set off to live the life of an adventurer and seek his fortunes elsewhere.
