Dane Trickfoot was born in the sketchy desert metropolis of Jed'Haru. He first started work at his father's restaurant, The Cobbler's Chophouse. He learned basic magical trickery and other impish skills from his uncle Jasper, an eccentric old gnome who was known for his amazing yet nonsensical contraptions that combined mechanical parts with magic. The one thing Dane admired most about his uncle was his ambition and extreme stubbornness to succeed in his field of work.
At the age of 25, Dane and his cousin and friend Ander joined a small forgery ring that was spearheaded by their family, initially starting with small tasks of questionable legality that started to rise in clandestineness such as scams and burglary. After some time in this business and leading a relatively comfortable life, Dane had noticed Ander becoming increasingly obsessed with the tale of their ancestor Alvyn Trickfoot, who was part of a legendary adventuring party called Alpha League that disappeared while searching for a series of ancient powerful relics. This obsession soon grew unhealthy, until one day Ander told Dane that he had a dream of a swirling cloud of smoke that offered to help them find out what had happened to their ancestor. Dane refused, thinking it only a sign of illness, but this changed the next day when Ander was nowhere to be found. All that was left was a blank scroll and a silver bracelet of unknown runes.
Dane left town to find his friend and find out what became of him. Since then, he has been finding work for his roguish skills, mainly as a treasure hunter or thief-for-hire.
