Kraken comes from a town called Argo where his father Newton (a renowned human thief), and his mother Tone (a budding human magic user) settled down in. Thanks to his father’s tutelage, Kraken becomes a thief as well and has notoriety because of his father.
At age 21, Kraken sets off on his own and has several adventures making a handful of friends within the thieve’s guilds as well as with several other races, mainly elves who taught him their language and customs. Kraken prefers to work alone, but will join others on adventures if riches can be achieved.
At 25, engages in a relationship with a human princess named Jenosha who hails from the city of Zoa, but because of Kraken’s lifestlye as a thief Jenosha reluctantly agrees to marry Prince Andar of Amethyst.
Disappointed, Kraken continues on as a thief honing his craft and eventually meets up with his current adventurers whom he met while on the run from a baron named Hackmin, whom he stole riches from and hid a small village outside of Zoa.
After defeating Andar, King Thorn has accepted the relationship between Kraken and Jenosha. They are currently ruling over the city of Amethyst and now have a one year old child.
