The peoples of the Mwangi Expanse are varied and underepresented in the Glorious Endeavor.
A recruiter for the island and project of Hermea was exploring the wild land, and had a brief affair with his strong and beautiful Mwangi guide.
The recruiter eventually left and later a child named Barca was born.
Barca’s mother was a strong leader and warrior for her tribe, but she knew her tribe was dying. Their enemies grew and their lands wouldn’t be theirs much longer.
As is their way, Barca’s mother will fight to the death and be rewarded in the next life, but she wants more for her child who is too young to fight.
The recruiter who once traveled the Mwangi Expanse, and briefly loved a strong and beautiful woman who loved him back but would not leave her people, left with this woman a trinket that she could use to call him back if she ever changed her mind.
But the recruiter did not find the woman he had loved; he found an empty and burned village bearing no life except for one, a Mwangi child with his trinket and his green eyes.
Barca was not raised by his father, he might see him briefly when he returned to Hermea, but they were never close.
Maybe due to this upbringing, or something inside him, Barca was always quick to anger and regularly got into fights.
One of his few friends was another Mwangi boy slightly older than him named Auctus, but even he would not stay around Barca when he was angry. Auctus did help to give Barca some focuses in school outside of combat training, and even though he would never have alchemical skills such as Auctus, the field interested him, especially learning about exotic ingredients and the challenging places explorers had to go to find them.
Near the time of their final tests, one of Auctus’ many minor bullys decided to take things too far and in a fit of rage Barca almost killed the boy.
Many pushed for his expulsion and exile, but it was decided that if Barca and his combative tallents joined the expedition to the Worldwound, he may be able to redeem himself.
