Gisburn was born as the only heir to the Noble Family of the same name in the Achaean City of Pikeston. His family was once known for being great warriors, but nowadays they were known for being political schemers and for their on-again-off-again feuds with the ruling family: the Vulpowiczes. His family was disappointed with him, as he chose to become a knight and fight for the empire, though that all changed when he received a crippling wound in combat against the Northerners.
Gisburn had always hated his family for being the people who they were; crafty, sneaky, and all too focused on the political side of the Empire. However, with no other option than to live out his days as a beggar, he decided to become what he had once hated: a Politician. He eventually became so good at it, that his own family, fearing that he would betray them, set into motion a staged scandal that would end with his exile from the town.
While on his exile, he decided to not only become a politician, but the greatest con-man of all time. In his travels across the known world, he met his bodyguard and business partner, Loxley, made friends and enemies, and plotted and executed the most successful and botched schemes the fortunate and unfortunate people involved had ever seen.
