“Sonny boy, you’re gonna own this guild some day, ya will. And when that day comes I’m going into the fine business o’ gamblin!”
~Krion Corsovan on his retirement plans.
Krion Corsovan took over the Spider Thorn guild at age twenty and quickly put it on the map as a particularly skilled guild. He instituted a “there is no race among thieves” policy for the guild and is known to employ anyone useful as well as using his guild members to bring down other guilds or absorb them.
Krion met Val when he was bought from a local orphanage by one of his thieves. When Krion saw how good the little guy was at picking locks, he adopted him and began training Val to be a thief. Krion taught Val how to lie and steal and did his best to be a good father to the tyke. He watched his son fall in love and even helped him steal the engagement rings like a good father would. He also watched his son get his heart broken and has since done his best to follow Val’s wishes and keep an eye on Melanne.
Krion is, overall, a really nice guy but is loud and bombastic more often than not and would steal your wallet as much as look at you. He’s a gambler by nature and is known to phrase commands in the form of making bets. He’s also a liar, and a very good one at that. The biggest thing he’s honest about is his affection for his son and he considers Val his only family.
Krion has a small house that acts as the entrance to the guild. He is usually found there, filling out mission briefings and such. The cache Val keeps is in the house, hidden in his bedroom. Krion usually is waiting for Val to show up.
