The man known only as Lorcan is a mystery, but not because he’s particularly mysterious by nature. Lorcan manages to piss off most everyone he meets, so no one is particularly motivated to get to know him. His last name isn’t a secret; no one has asked him what it is.
This has been the story of Lorcan’s life. Growing up in the orphanages of Ord, he had a knack for saying the wrong thing at the wrong time. This meant that he was constantly pushed around by the bigger boys. If he tried to keep his mouth shut, he would instead blunder into something and break something else of value. Since he couldn’t figure out how to stop being so clumsy, Lorcan instead got good at covering his tracks and at using a slingshot.
When he became too old for the orphanages, Lorcan had reached a point where he craved the respect he had never been shown in his childhood. It stood to reason that the place to get that respect was in the watch.
It seemed Lorcan’s fortunes had changed. He found he excelled at recognizing the clues at a scene of a crime (mostly by thinking how he would have tried to cover up a crime) and that his skills with a rifle were above average too. Unfortunately, ever fate’s fool, Lorcan managed to accidentally shoot his captain in the ass during a training exercise. This might not have been enough to have Lorcan thrown out of the watch, but his comment about the captain being “the butt of the joke” sealed the deal.
It was clear to Lorcan that he would not be able to garner the respect he wanted from his work, so he would have to get it through money. His time in the watch had revealed a couple of talents he could peddle for gold, and being his own boss had the perk of it being almost impossible to shoot the boss in the ass. Since going into business for himself, Lorcan has been pursuing the fast gold piece. He’ll do almost anything for gold, and he’s always willing to listen to how much gold is on offer.
