Gusk was born in a little town far away wich he can't remember the name due to his bad memory. He was said to be very smart and was always said he would have a great future. he saw magic for the first time when he was four when a band of thieves attacked the town and the town wizard took down part of the raid but gusk who wanted to see the battle from nearer got burned in the face and hands leaving him 5 scars. At the age of 18, he run away from his home with little but a few coins in his pockets. He went travelling after that without a known destination, begging to get food and helping troubled people for not much more than a rice bowl and a kind thanks. he can't go back to his birthplace, not because he would be scolded for running away or becouse he wouldn't like but because of his bad memory he can't remember were the town was so he has no other option than going ahead.
