Coen was raised a typical young noble boy in House Dawnsever. He excelled in athletics and the path of knighthood was all but assured. His brother Kent struggled where Coen succeeded, and instead chose the path of the more analytically minded, becoming a court Chronicler.
While a page and squire, Coen courted a young lady named Helen of House [HERP DERP]. He promised to find her again after his tour was over. His path met with Darrin Bridger, and established a rapport. One day, they decided to teach some local thugs a lesson, and an innocent bystander was killed as a result. Coen passed all blame to Darrin, causing him to be rejected as a squire. Coen remembers that episode vividly, and sees his maiming as karmic retribution for what he had done to Darrin.
After his return, Coen decided it would be best to not find Helen again, and let her think he was dead, considering his change in appearance and personality.
He has instead devoted himself to championing the cause of his mentor, Sir Bael Sernan, whose wise instruction led to Coen’s survival behind enemy lines.
