Balasar was discovered while still in an egg by a band of adventurers, led by a powerful sorcerer. The group had come upon a troll camp and, after clearing them out, made off with their stockpiled riches. Amongst the gold, jewels, and trinkets, the sorcerer found what appeared to be a golden egg, likely mistaken for a large, golden nugget by the dim-witted trolls. Taking it back to his tower, he cared for it until it hatched, giving birth to Balasar.

The sorcerer, a bit of a recluse, decided to take Balasar under his wing, having him perform many of his daily errands that would normally take him away from his work. This continued on for several years until the sorcerer’s tower was one night attacked by a group of thieves. Caught off-guard, the sorcerer was overwhelmed and would have been killed had it not been for the intervention of Balasar. Overwhelmed with fear and anger, Balasar charged into the room emitting a thunderous roar. It was at this moment that he felt a sudden surge of power and emitted a large blast of acidic mist from his jaws that killed several of the thieves instantly and caused the other to run away in fear. While extremely grateful for his life, the sorcerer also noted the raw potential of the dragonborn and decided to train him in the ways of magic.

No longer an errand-boy, Balasar spent countless days and nights training under the sorcerer learning to harness his abilities and manifest others. Life was good for Balasar until the night of his 21st birthday. Balasar awoke in bed, hearing a large rumble outside the tower walls. He ran to the window only to find the town ablaze and the townspeople running in terror. Just as he was about to run to his master, an enormous black black dragon flew into view. For a few seconds their eyes met, when suddenly the dragon rushed headlong at the tower.

Balasar awoke several hours later amongst a pile of rubble, only to find that the entire town was in ruins. Finding no survivors, Balasar departed from what was left of his home in search of a new beginning. After two days of traveling, he finally arrived at Tormandir. With no food, family, or home, Balasar decided that his only viable option was to join the military. A few hours later, he was the newest member of the 4th Legion.
