A young orphan raised by the church, Korben took to religion quickly and studiously. When he got lost in the woods around the church one day, Korben encountered a young child, Alathia, who would go onto become his only family. After bringing her back to the church, Korben insisted to the clerics that she stay with him and reluctantly they relented. After leaving the church Korben dragged Alathia to the battlefields so he could work as a healer on the front. Later after encountering a band of adventurers, Korben decided that he no longer wanted to tie Alathia to the life of a cleric, so he left the war and they joined the party for a life of freedom and adventure.
