Enki was born into a poor family of cobblers in the Zamoran city of Shadizar the Wicked.

He spent most of his childhood on the streets but learned how to fight from an uncle who had served in the Argossian navy.

Enki has no qualms about stealing for a living, and he was pleased to find a sturdy ally in “Stick,” a Cimmerian Barbarian he met during the reign of King Conan in Aquilonia. They found like-minded fighters….
