Homeless Delinquent, Aspiring Bard
Thestin was orphaned very young and taken in by his grandfather. They lived in a small hovel as a part of an extended piece of land belonging to a farmer. They helped the farmer for a time, but this ended when Thestin was young due to his grandfathers deteriorating and old mind. While taking care of his grandfather, he picked up the lute on his own and learned to play music diligently. His grandfather would eventually pass, leaving Thestin with naught to do but seek out Bree. This is/was his simple story, at least the way he would tell it...
