Background: Born in Neverwinter to a shipwright. He lived a simple life in a rough part of the docks, in faith and worship of good deities, he labored alongside his father. There came a day when there was an accident at work; his father was greviously wounded. As Anthem clung to the dying patriarch, he inadvertently healed the man by the laying on of his hands.
The inquisition of the Temple of Torm that followed the miracle recognized that Anthem was born to the calling of the paladin. After several meetings with his parents, Anthem was removed from his family and from the work of a laborer to answer a higher calling.
Anthem was relocated to Tantras, where he served as a page and squire under the knight Sir Jacques d'Astier de la Vigerie - a fierce Tormtar and veteran crusader of many battles in Anauroch. Under the tutelage of Sir Jacques in all things from combat to ettiquite to faith, Anthem grew to emulate his hero as best he may. When he had come unto his own knighthood, was comissioned to the Western Heartlands.
Anthem roams across the realm as a questing knight in search of high adventure.
