Connor was born and raised in Detroit. An orphan from birth, Connor spent most of his time in foster homes and group homes. Though there is some question about what exactly happened to him while in and out of these homes, it is known that he spent some time in Juvie, possibly for arson. It was here that Connor picked up a lot of tricks, and when his time was up he slipped out of the system and began living on the streets.
He survived by pickpocketing, stealing, and confidence games; using his easy smile and good natured demeanor to deflect a lot of close calls in his early career. By the time he reached 33, he was a man who had a lot of connections with bookies, fences, and other people within the criminal underworld of Detroit. This put him at Diablo’s Dungeon, a good place to run book, pick pockets, and scam rich fight enthusiasts. But instead his life changed drastically when he saw two redheads and a weird book that he couldn’t resist trying to lift.
While trying to follow the girls, he found himself on the wrong end of a chase with a wraith. Since then, the man who has spent his life trying not to get noticed has become embroiled in a secret world that is paying more and more attention him, a world of monsters and mages. This culminated with his murder and resurrection in Scotland. Since then he’s been trying to stay one step ahead of death and whoever wants to silence him; and apparently he doesn’t care who he has to make a deal with to accomplish that goal.
Though often shady, letting very little of himself or his motivations show through, Connor has nonetheless proved a loyal friend to Aislin, Ceana, and Gunther; saving Ceana’s life a couple of times and helping Gunther with his mother’s necklace. Some have wondered whether this nice, loyal guy is just an act, or simply the deeper self of a person who has always had to do what was necessary to survive. Only time will tell who the true Connor is.
