Cadon never really took to the warrior lifestyle of the Shriikirri-Quah. He experienced the typical upbringing of a Shoanti warrior, and he was taught to hunt and fight, stealth and herb lore, and the myriad other skills a warrior is expected to have. However, the battles he truly excelled at were battles of wits. Over time, he grew to be called upon to negotiate surrenders, tributes, even marriages. In another society, Cadon might have become a judge, a diplomat, or perhaps a scholar. Among the Shoanti, he became a negotiator. Over the years, he spent as much time in Chelish cities as he did among the tribes, and more time travelling than either until eventually the tribe no longer felt like home.

Recently, Cadon has begun to tire of the difficult life of wandering Varisia alone (Grenn notwithstanding), smoothing over other people’s problems. He’s decided that he’d like a little more comfort and luxury in his life. The Swallowtail Festival seemed as good an opportunity as any to make a start on that, and so now he finds himself here in Sandpoint, on the lookout for opportunities to build some influence for himself and a fortune to retire on.
