Sage son of Noble house Sgabard
Declan was the black sheep of the family until his little brother showed up. His (crooked) nose was always in a book and not doing something useful like making money or practicing his fighting skills.
He was encouraged to find employment outside the family when he got older. He apprenticed to a sage in town, and later moved to Stonehold to continue his pursuits under a new master, and nearer research materials.
He shares the same crooked nose that is distinctive of most of the Sgabard males.
