Born into the Chelish House of Jegarre Nobles, Garm lived a privileged life as a nobleman in Westcrown. He married a beautiful woman from House Thrune at 20 and had five children, but only 4 survived into adulthood. The youngest became an adventurer, fell in with pirates and was killed when his crew raided a merchant vessel and was ambushed by Andoren naval forces. The next oldest child became obsessed with the study of devils and matters Infernal, became a Diabolist, and disappeared one night 20 years ago after summoning a Devil, never to be heard from again. The second oldest, a girl, married into House Henderthane and had three children of her own. She and her family went on a lavish cruise to Katapesh 10 years ago, but their ship sunk at sea mid-voyage. The oldest, a son, stayed in Cheliax to assist his uncle in running the matters of the House. He married into House Thrune as well and had seven children. Garm’s wife died 15 years ago, succumbing to a drug addiction after the disappearance of their Diabolist son. Is Garm unlucky, cursed, or has there been someone behind the scenes all along, pulling the strings to add to his misery?
Five years ago, an assassination attempt was made on the head of House Jeggare, Garm’s brother. He survived but his wife and daughter were slain. Garm’s oldest son was also targeted, but unfortunately for him he and his entire family did not. Garm took up the worship of Calistria, devoting the rest of his life to her and his quest for revenge. So far those responsible for the orchestration of the attacks against his house remain nameless and faceless, as they covered their tracks well. However, countless hours of investigation over two years have revealed that whomever ordered the hits did so through Scarzni ties, which has led Garm to Varisia to find out what they know in the hopes that they’ll lead him back to the perpetrators.
Garm has been receiving steady pressure from House Thrune to find and punish those responsible for murdering members of their house (his grandchildren and daughter-in-law). He has been charged with the honor of delivering the will of Her Infernal Majestrix to the culprits, upon pain of torture and loss of his House’s status in Court should he fail. House Thrune has pledged their aid in his investigation, and has demanded to be updated regularly on his quest for revenge.
