Lan was born on The Outsider of Heiquis to a merchant family. Military service in Heiquis is mandatory so at 16 Lan was conscripted into the military to serve his time. After basic training he was stationed at The Spire to combat the Deuragr and earn his status as a full citizen of Heiquis. Lan excelled in the military and quickly established a place for himself. After his mandatory service he remained in the military and served in The Spire until he was given a position in the Diplomat’s Guard who’s job was to protect foreign diplomats, dignitaries, and other esteemed guests who were visiting Heiquis. His willingness to throw himself in harm’s way to protect his charges and his dedication to this job earned him the rank of captain.
His years of service in the military were cut short after he was forced into an early retirement due to a change in the political landscape. New families rose to power and used their influence to remove many soldiers of high rank and status and place their own men into the military to quickly consolidate power. After his “retirement” Lan found himself tiring of Heiquis so he left to find a better life for himself. Not long after his departure he encountered Bahrain who hired him to locate the mysterious Titan. The discovery of The Titan and his subsequent adventures have given Lan a new purpose in life. He seeks to become a hero. To use this opportunity as a founding colonist of The Titan to establish himself and become a lord of the land.
