Animal Lover - Animals either become your friend or they don’t. They shouldn’t be locked-up, traded & sold for pleasure.
Doing Good - Otto is a thief, but is not motivated by greed. Instead, he wants to help others, and is very willing to take from those that have to help those that have not.
Relationship - Otto has friends back home that he left behind when he came to the Nothern Continent. There will be times when he will be homesick or reminded of them.
Stranger in A Strange Land - While Otto speaks the same language as the Northern Continenters, but has a very distinct accent that is easily noticed as being from the West. As such, people may react to it.

Background: Otto came to the Northern shores of Anoria from the Western Continent Island. His mother had been a potions-maker, but when he became old enough, he started assisting at the various ports in the loading/unloading ships as they came into Solaris. As mundane of an event this would be, Otto found ways to keep it interesting: eavesdropping on conversations, killing rats with his throwing knives, the overwhelming curiosity of what the locked chests contained or letting loose the occasional endangered species. Animals either become your friend or they don’t. They shouldn’t be locked-up, traded & sold for pleasure.

Reaching his mid 20s, he decided to open a couple of trading posts. One each on the opposite sides of the continent, in Solaris and in Skia. He partnered up with a few other dock hands he had grown close to over the ten years. His best mate Frederick ran the one in Skia as Otto ran the other. When someone had acquired goods from one shore, they made their way to the other ports trading post. Once every three months, Otto and Frederick met up with each other to handover goods, swap stories and information, sharing the profits...but slowly Otto was becoming weary of this way of life.

Stories of what was taking place on the Northern Continent began being spoken by one or two ships, then half of them. This awoke such a fire inside of Otto that he immediately cashed out with Frederick to take the next ship to the Northern Continent. It was never so clear that he wanted to explore and test himself, but this was the catalyst to see how his future would unfold.

He arrived at the port of Nornial, where he spent some time learning the basic mechanics of devices and the attributes of native plants that he could apply the tricks of his mother’s trade to. While there, he heard rumors of the distress Anoria was under and decided to head that way, booking passage aboard the Ruff Honour with Captain Dornal. The sailing was smooth without any run-ins with creatures that lived in the river, but Dornal was a rough captain who clearly was in it for the money. One day out of the city, a Raven landed on the boat, carrying Queen Esthora’s request for aid.
