Lost Mines of Phandelver
Human Ex-Soldier Fighter
An somewhat-grizzled ex-soldier, Wesley spent his younger years in the armies that fought in the land north of Neverwinter. Not cut out for leadership despite his wealth of military experience, he served as a sergeant under Captain Harman.
Whilst scouting, his squad were wiped out by some kind of arcane construct, and he was lucky to survive until the creature was driven off by reinforcements. He lost his right hand to it’s scything blades, and upon his return to consciousness had it replaced by a mechanical gauntlet. During the period of recovery, he became convinced that his survival was due to more than chance, and was beginning on the path of discovering religion.
However, he was discharged from the army, and unable to hold down a job: too violent for the town guards, and too much conscience to get easy pay with brigands. Instead, he sought out his former commanding officer, and together they formed a loose mercenary arrangement with Arden.
