Shadrach grew up near the manor house of his father, a landed knight. His mother told him who his father was, and Shadrach wanted to impress his father, so that he'd eventually acknowledge him. His father had secretly given his mother some money to help with his son's education. Shadrach convinced her that she should enroll him in one of the swordmaster schools in the nearby town. Shadrach studied hard, and learned fencing in the rare two-swords style. He started as a bodyguard of a local merchant.
One night while he was in town, his father's lord, Baron Nordar, was attacked by ruffians, after the Baron's assignation with his mistress. Shadrach helped defeat the ruffians, and the Baron took him on as his bodyguard.
Shadrach went on several adventures with the Baron, including several against the vicious Klidd, a reptilian race. His father has yet to acknowledge him, but continues to follow his son's career.
This man can duel very well. He doesn't go challenging everyone in sight, but if insulted, he will not be dissuaded. He is proud of his military background and of his father, even though he's a bastard.
