#12 Aaron Falkirk

| November 13, 2011 | 0 Comments

Aaron Falkirk was one of the greatest thieves in the Realm.  There was no secured object that was beyond his ability to whisk away–small artifacts up to a 150-foot sand cruiser.  Whether solo or with a team, Aaron proved to be a slippery one for law enforcement.

Until the day that he had a change of heart.

A young girl asked Aaron to steal a precious family heirloom from a corrupt government official.  Digging deeper, Aaron discovered that the official had stolen many things from the poor or unfortunate.  Aaron then decided to change sides and steal from the powerful and corrupt and give the items back to their respectful owners.  A recent job returned a precious relic to the grateful people of the town of Baranore.

Seven years ago, Aaron met two women who would lead him on a new path in his life: Dawn Shryer and Chessie Ilvanis.  The three would form a team that would take on any troubleshooting assignment.  Although Aaron fell in love with Chessie at first sight, Chessie pretty much loathed him.  The two bickered constantly, but still worked well together (partially due to Dawn being a “bridge” between the two).

During an investigation of the ruins of an ancient city of the “First People”, the team forged a working relationship with Gillian Rohcha and Elgren Fenris of the Investigator’s Guild.  Aaron ended up saving Chessie’s life, and the two were separated from the others.  Both admitted that they really did care about each other more than they admitted, and realized that, yep, they were in love.

Aaron has no special powers, but he has an analytical mind and a set of tools that allows him to pick any lock.  He’s also a superb fighter, although he tends to try and diffuse the situation first by talking things out.

About the Author ()

Hello everyone, I'm Marc McKenzie, and this is my second year taking part in of this challenge. I've been a freelancer for the past few years, working in animation and creating commissioned work for clients including the New York Times. There have been ups and downs, but...that's life. Honestly, though, I enjoyed taking part in the challenge last year, and I hope to do my best this year...but I hope that everyone does their best and has fun! Ironically, I never really set out to do art at first. I studied something completely different in college and it was only because of an art teacher that I changed gears. Currently I'm living in Hillsborough, New Jersey, working on commissions, trying to find full-time work, and being a doting uncle to my niece.
