it’s super rare to see highborns putting themselves up for hire. usually it’s the secluded, mollycoddled dandy types who are bored at home. “wanderlust” they call it. I’m sure he’s worth the price. really.
we also have a highborn battlemage from High King Aurelius’ personal army. I don’t think he’s a deserter. he sure looks like he’d be strong enough to desert the most powerful army in the world, though.
as always when dealing with highborns, be sure to read the full contract! especially the fine print.
