shenanigans are my specialty
Deadsmell grew up in the village of Gethran on the isle of Quon Tali.
HE was known as a half-wild boy who was terrorized by his four older sisters.
When hiding from his sisters he would spend time with Old Scaz who was the dresser of the dead for the village. Scaz taught Deadsmell much of what he knows of the dead. At age 17, Scaz was murdered by a jealous husband and Deadsmell took over his job. When a local priest died and Deadsmell went to prepare him, he found the god Zyphus in the room taking the man’s soul. Surprised that Deadsmell could see him and because of his knowledge Zyphus offered Deadsmell to serve him. Deadsmell left his village at age 19 and joined the Malazan Empire’s army as a squad mage. Deadsmell learned many skills in the army and even found out he could control the dead. After several years in the army, Deadsmell took his leave to better work his skillls and make his fortune in the world as an adventurer.
