Jump to navigation Jump to search

A hero of the Ala Mhigan revolution, Curtis was once a guard in the employ of the royal household. Unable to endure King Theodoric's oppressive rule, however, he fled with his two beloved daughters-Yda Hext and Lyse Hext-to live off the land as a hunter. Yet the mad king's tyranny grew worse with each passing day, and Curtis, at the behest of his former comrades, was drawn into the ranks of a newly formed insurgent army. His natural charisma soon saw him rise to a position of leadership, and after many a hard-fought battle, he led the charge which would topple the crazed monarch from his throne. But the victory would be short-lived, the Garlean Empire seized the opportunity to launch an invasion in the chaotic wake of the revolution, and Curtis, then fory one years old, was killed in the ensuing violence-a tragic end for a man who wanted only a peaceful life for his children.
