Aston Nythark enjoyed a life of ease and pleasure in Mountgate before the Draconic invasion. The youngest child of well-to-do gnome merchants, Aston’s parents indulged his academic studies and personal interests. When he discovered a flare for wizardry, they were pleased to arrange an apprenticeship for him.
The invasion changed Nythark’s life forever. When the Draconic legions laid siege to Mountgate, the Lower City quickly surrendered. The Upper City fell soon after, betrayed from within, and overwhelmed from without.
Nythark’s home burned, claiming the lives of his parents. He still doesn’t know what happened to his siblings. The legions made an example of Mountgate, decimating the entire city, before marching on to join the siege of Darkwater.

In the chaos that followed, Aston allied with General Fulcrys and his forces as they seized power in Mountgate. Aston wasn’t happy with some of the things Fulcrys did, but he did bring order back to the city.  The gnome wizard has done what he can to moderate Fulcrys’s harsher edicts, even objecting to some of the general’s harsher plans.  It hasn’t made the gnome popular with all of the general’s inner circle, but it has earned him some good feeling with Mountgate’s beleaguered populace.
