A Game of Gods
Cade Alexander Violet
Cade the Violent Blade. Pirate King of Luskan.
“Many rumors abound when tavern talk turns to the man known as ‘The Violet Blade’. Some proclaim Cade Violet to be a ruthless corsair, a man bent on reputation and riches. Others say that he is a thief in the employ of the church of Mask charged with acquiring the things that cannot easily be acquired. To some the name conjures images of a great knight of Turmish, a noble protector and emissary, slayer of the mighty leviathan. Stranger tales still surround this enigmatic figure. Whispered voices tell of a vampire plaguing the people of Calimshan, marking his victims with his signature rose. Some claim that he is a traitor to all the common races, a consort of the Drow. Perhaps the most dreadful (though unlikely) story is that he is the prophesized ‘King of Monsters’, a messiah for those perverse few with devils filth in their veins and that soon the time will come when his army of abominations spills forth from deep within the jungles of Chult to wage war on the mortal races. Whatever the truth, to this day there are none who have faced his whirling knives and lived to speak of it. Beware the rose for it has thorns.’
