What The Individual Members of The Mighty Nein Know About Each Other

Thanks to @Lyadrielle for this art piece!

Here’s where things get complicated. There are bits of information that aren’t out to the entire group, but a few characters do know. Here’s a (relatively) quick summary of what certain people know about other members of the Mighty Nein to wrap things up.

What Extra Information Beau Knows About…

Caleb

Caleb is from the small village of Blumenthal, raised by his mother, Una, and father, Leofric. Caleb and two other Blumenthal teens, Astrid and Eodwulf, were chosen to attend the Soltryce Academy. Caleb was charismatic, and social experiences came easy to him. After a year at the Academy, the three of them were groomed by Trent Ikithon, a member of the Cerberus Assembly, to leave the Academy and train under his hard tutelage.

Eventually Trent modified their memories to think that their parents were speaking out against the Empire, and as a final trial, they had to kill their parents. The three did, and hearing the screams of his parents as they burned alive in their home broke Caleb. He then spent years in a sanitarium, where a woman there cast the modified memory from his brain, and he realized the truth that he had been manipulated into killing his parents, as well as other people Trent brought in as “traitors” to the Empire. After his time there, he wandered the Empire, getting by mostly through theft.

Beau

Beau is from Kamordah, a city in the western Dwendalian Empire surrounded by mountains. She is a member of the Expositors, a branch of the Cobalt Soul monastic order. Sometime while she was at the Cobalt Soul, she received a note from her parents informing her that she had a baby brother, and that it was better that she not come home.

Caleb

He was thrown in a small town’s jail, where he met up with Nott. They helped each other escape prison, and have been together since.

Fjord

Fjord was taken in by Vandran, who taught Fjord everything he knows about sailing and how to carry himself. Vandran also took another under his wing, Sabian. Fjord and Sabian didn’t always see eye to eye, but Fjord thought they had put their disagreements to rest. One night, as their ship, the Tide’s Breath, was sailing through an area of the Lucidian Ocean known as the Diver’s Grave, a massive storm hit. Fjord caught Sabian going below deck and lighting a fuse. When Fjord called him on it, Sabian put a dagger in Fjord’s chest and ran above deck to abandon ship. An explosion hit, and Fjord was thrown overboard.

When Fjord awoke, he was next to a falchion that he had never seen before. When he examined it, he suddenly came to have new powers gifted to him by Uk’otoa. Fjord hitched a ride back towards Port Damali. He planned to go through Vandran's things, but the storehouse had been ransacked. The local butcher next door said that he was proud to see at least one other of Vandran’s crew other than Sabian, and that no one else had returned. Wanting to learn more about his new magical capabilities, Fjord struck out for Rexxentrum to potentially gain entry to the Soltryce Academy. Along his way, he met Jester, who was escaping from the bounty on her head in Nicodranas.

Caduceus is also the sole member of the Mighty Nein to have received confirmation that Vandran is still alive somewhere, thanks to his chat with the Wildmother.

Jester

Jester grew up the daughter of Marion Lavore, a highly respected courtesan in Nicodranas. Her father, Babenon Dosal, was a charming man from an island at sea with blue (and damp) skin and dark hair who wore many rings on his fingers. After Marion and he fell in love, she got pregnant, and they decided that they were going to get married. He left to get his home set up for them, but he never returned, leaving Marion as a single mother.

Jester spent the majority of her childhood in The Lavish Chateau, where her mother lived and worked. She stayed hidden away so that her mother’s clients wouldn’t know about her, though she went into the city sometimes with Marion’s minotaur bodyguard, Bluud. Marion still spent a lot of quality time with Jester, and sang to her a lot.

One day, Jester played a prank on one of her mother’s clients, Lord Sharp, taking on her mother’s appearance, luring him out onto their balcony, and locking him out to the public while he was in a girdle. He was furious, and put a bounty on Jester’s head. Jester left Nicodranas to escape Lord Sharp and hopefully find her father to live with him. Along the way, she met Fjord, excitedly joining him in his journey to the Dwendalian Empire as a traveling companion.

Jester is a cleric of the Traveler.

Nott

Nott grew up near Felderwin on the eastern side of the Dwendalian Empire. Nott was put in a small town’s jail cell with Caleb. After breaking free, the two began traveling together.

Yasha

Yasha is from a swampy area of Xhorhas called Iothia Moorland. Iothia Moorland was south far of Ghor Dranas, and her people didn’t go near it because of the rumors of how terrible it was. She was a member of the Dolorav tribe, and was given the name Orphan Maker by the Skyspear, the matriarch of the clan. Yasha fell in love with another woman in the clan, Zuala, and secretly married her, despite knowing she was matched to marry another. When their marriage was discovered, Zuala was killed and Yasha ran away. Her memory is very spotty between then and when she woke up at the temple of the Stormlord, who saved her.

Beau

Beau’s mother had a son while Beau was at the Cobalt Soul monastery. Her parents sent her a letter to let her know and that it would be for the best if she and them parted ways.

Molly

Lucien/Nonagon was sometimes charismatic in his cruelty. The woman The Tomb Takers were working with was an ally of L/N’s. This ritual would supposedly lead them to a city he promised where they could learn long-lost secrets and powers.

Beau’s best lie involved acting as a house hand for a couple she didn’t like, found out they were cheating on each other, and used it to ruin their lives.
