The son of a House bard and a serving wench, Del was rejected by his father as a bastard
child. His mother attempted to raise him best she could, while keeping him out of the
hands of a father who wanted him to disappear.
A child with a already pleasant disposition, he was a clown from the age he could walk, a
mischevious prankster. For some reason, he always found himself playing pranks on his
estranged father. As he reached puberty, he did not grow like his peers, remaining frail
and generally weak. Even more debilitating, he developed allergies to nearly everything
around him. And yet, he managed to maintain a cheerful disposition.
On his fourteenth birthday, he played the prank of his life on his father and mother, he
ran away to join a traveling carnival. For some reason, others did not find it as amusing
as he did. His mother pleaded with him to return to their meager living quarters in the
servants hall. Even the owner of the house offered him a job, at her begging, if he
stayed. Unfortunately, Del had found a place were he could play pranks without getting in
trouble. He was taken under the wing of the carnival jester. Ever since then, he has
remained with the carnival, traveling across the Confederacy of Sheinar.
Although a friendly man, he still has few friends in the carnival. Unfortunately, he fails
to realize that it is difficult to make friends with your victims. His only true friend,
as he sees it, is his pet peacock, Tobie.
