Galileo Figaro is the professional name of a mercenary from Sharn. Little is known of his past and he has so far divulged his real name to no-one. Whether or not he has family or friends is unknown. When asked about why he chose such a strange name to be known by in the mercenary world, his only response was, “I like the song.”

What is known about Galileo is that he is a devoted follower of the teachings of Dol Dorn and a cleric of that god. When the Last War was raging, Galileo had been fighting as a mercenary captain for a rather unmemorable company known as “The Blitz” when he overheard a general telling his protégé that the only mercenaries that were worth his attention were the war couriers. This general went on to explain that because tactical information was so vital to making war, couriers were to be respected and highly valued. The statement that followed made a huge impact on Galileo. “Any man may swing a weapon at his enemy, it takes real skill to facilitate an effective battle. Only officers and couriers can claim any responsibility for that.” Upon hearing this, Galileo remembered Dol Dorn’s command to be respected for skill in making war. After fighting the battle he had been contracted to fight, Galileo took his leave of “The Blitz” and began seeking experts to train him to be an exceptional courier.

In a few months Galileo was working as a courier for the military forces of Breland. He was quite good at his job and gained some respect among the commanders of the Brelish forces. One of the generals, a bigoted man named Drasc, hated Galileo and tried to ruin his career with accusations of treason. Though the charges were proven false, and Galileo exhonorated, he was forced to look for simple mercenary work again after the war was over. General Drasc had been quite successful in the war and was now one of King Boranel’s advisors. Though Galileo respected Drasc for his skill with command, he resented the man for the wrong that he had suffered at Drasc’s hand.

After the war, the king of Breland appointed Drasc the royal liaison to house Orien. Galileo was still trying to prove his skill to Dol Dorn and the world at large. It had become a common saying among sellswords after the war that “Only the best and most foolish get involved in the trade wars of the dragonmarked houses.” It became clear to Galileo that if he only accepted contracts against House Orien, he could get some measure of revenge against Drasc while continuing to hone his skill in battle for the glory of Dol Dorn.

Recently, a Lyrandar airship captain named Joram, who had fought side by side with Galileo during the war, told Galileo about rumors that House Orien was trying to build some kind of alternate airship and that a contract on it was being handled by a fixer named Digger. Galileo made sure that Digger found him and placed him on the team for the assignment.

The heist was a success, but the ship began immediately on a course for Xen’Drik. What awaits for Galileo in the future is as unknowable as the rest of his past.
