Argo was born into a small farm near the mountains of Sunwater. His father was a goatherd and a cartwright. His mother was a seamstress and a leather tanner. Argo had two younger brothers: Pell, Sarn; and an older sister named Gloria.

One day a strange robed woman came through the village and she offered gold to spend the evening in shelter and have some food. Argo’s trusting family that was devastated by this woman who turned out to be a Decay Priestess of the Sword Gods. While they slept she slew the father and the younger brothers, raising them from the dead as ghasts to fill out her army.

Argo and Gloria escaped and fled to the town sheriff who raised a levee to assault the befouled farmstead. Argo witnessed the townsfolk destroy his father and brothers but the priestess and his mother were never found. Traumatized by this event, Argo fell catatonic for some months and dreamed of Celestia; while Gloria sold the farm, married the town blacksmith: a dwarf named Furtock Hammerthumb.

Argo recovered under the care of Opusar, an elderly priest/mage of Jalivier who taught Argo his faith and strong moral code. Argo took Holy Orders in Caloric at the age of 22, bid farewell to Opusar, and took to the road to seek his fortune, discover his faith and seek answers about his mother’s fate. As for the Priestess of Mussin, she, her followers, all undead everywhere and all proponents of evil, disease and necromancy will suffer the righteous wrath of Argo Flameheart rekindled.
