Besh al Farak
The Younger Twin
Twin to Töt, the two are almost impossible to tell apart. Both have a medium brown skin with deep amber eyes and a mixed brown and ashen hair. Although they look alike, their personalities are far different. Besh is gruff and often hard to get along with, preferring insult to flattery, although he may often mean well. In contrast to his brother, when an idea strikes him he has laser focus on a goal, but those goals seem to be in constant flux.
Being born Salt gives you very few options in Land’s Edge. Especially for the fourth son of a poor family. The main opportunity to live comfortably is to somehow make it into the town guard. So, Besh and his brother Töt devoted their waking hours to learning, watching, and training. After applying four years in a row they were finally accepted to the guard. Had they not been ignored by most of their peers and officers, they might have done better, but such is the life of a Salt. They stuck together most of the time, as their skills complimented one another well.
Then one day fate conspired against them. They were investigating a public disturbance when they stumbled on a group of the Blind Eye. To make matters worse it was some of their fellow town guard, that had gone corrupt. The thugs overwhelmed the twins, stripped them, tied them up, framed them as the real members of the Blind Eye. Of course their testimony was disregarded in the courts without a second thought. They have spent the last 3 years in prison for a crime they didn’t commit.
