Huxley Banmarden, like his brother, Theo, grew up in a relatively privileged home as the son of a wealthy merchant, Edric Banmarden and his wife, Drela. Huxley demonstrated a talent for magic from a prodigious age, when he successfully copied a cantrip taught to him by a visiting caravan guard, and the young boys’ tutor, Douven Staul, himself a swordmage and devotee of Ioun, insisted that he be allowed to train the boy to control his power, lest it manifest in wild and uncontrolled forms. Edric, suspicious of academic learning, required that the boy be taught to wield a sword along with his brother as well. A compromise was reached, and Huxley began his training as a swordmage.
