History:

born into an outlaw clan, deep in Kordeth (clan Thlowyn, who can trace their history all the way back to mythological times)

a shaman/ martial arts mentor figure told him that he had a destiny, and he must seek it among the stars.

he heads towards the surface, and sneaks into a settlement. Learns Urthish, gets into rough-and-tumble situations (fights) a lot

Ukari magistrate sends him to al Malik recruiter (rather than jail). Fights in the Emperor Wars with distinction, eventually rising to the rank of Sgt. in a commando unit. Participates in night raids, close combat boarding actions, deep-behind-enemy-lines spook ops.

…………….

Discharged from al Malik service prior to Alexius’ ascension, fell in with …………. Frequent run-ins with human law, didn’t like staying in an surface al Malik ghetto. People who get confronted by groups of armed drunk humans and wind up assaulting them with their own weapons don’t tend to be the legal system’s favorites… but this did help him meet all sorts of very interesting people, and he knows a lot of handshakes and nods (see benefices), especially when added to the people he met in the service (both in conventional and shadowier operations.)

Sooner or later, he got in way over his head. Andy got him out of it, and Andy received a blood oath of repayment in return. (While the player understands Frenk isn’t an island, he is only beginning to figure this out.)

……………..

Frenk spent his last birds on a rapier, when he learned he would be entering a noble’s service.
[I claim]Ukari swords are typically light-weight broadswords (Jin), or heavy curved blades similar to a katana/scimitar in stats (a Dao).
