Cadogan "Stuffy" Bramblefur
Cadogan Bramblefur (a.k.a. Cadogan Poulis in halfling) is the older brother of the notorious "accidental" Venture Captain Sanflen Poulis, who was separated from their siblings long ago while running from slavery. Cadogan was forced to leave his youngest sibling on his own, due to being chased by their masters' employees. It took several years before they met again, and during that time, Sanflen had changed dramatically: He had grown to be a ferocious warrior, despite his small stature, yet he still had his cunning and stubborness - and plain recklessness left, yet he still was his little brother who always looked up to him; in fact, Cadogan then realized it was no wonder his brother had become what he was.
Cadogan himself was the eldest of the seven siblings to have fled from their masters in Cheliax, forced to take on the mantle of being head of family when their parents died abruptly years before. He, too, grew headstrong and stuffy in the process - hence the nickname. He was very protective over his siblings, and while still slaves, even took most of their punishments in their place, voluntarily. Of course, as a slave, Cadogan was also accustomed to heavy labor, and had grown to be noticeably stronger than the average halfling. And being strong has served him well in his life.
Flight from slavery was not without other setbacks either: two more grieving events happened after Sanflen got astray from others; to travel from Cheliax through Andoran and eventually to Taldor is a long journey, and the world is filled with all kinds of dangers. The runaways faced many battles, in which Cadogan realized he was gifted in swordfighting; more so than two of his younger brothers which, despite Cadogan's efforts, died from deadly wounds. It's no wonder why Cadogan has grown to be so grim in the end, having failed to look after the youngest sibling and having two others die under his watch is a heavy burden to live with, especially when you've dedicated your life to protect them at all costs.
Until recently Cadogan has been making a living as a city guard in Cassomir, which has a prominent halfling population - a great place to go hiding when you're an escaped halfling slave, and start anew. But like always, in halfling communities words spread fast, and when Cadogan heard rumors that a halfling called "Sandflea" has risen to the Venture Captain title in Pathfinder Society, he couldn't help but wonder whether he misheard the name as Sanflen, so he wanted to know more about this halfling. The shock was matched with his joy, when he learned that the real name of the newly designated Venture Captain was Sanflen Poulis, and he immediately wrote a letter to his long lost brother. Soon after, Sanflen not only replied, but instead appeared into his house without a warning - a rogue's habit, he said - and was finally rejoined with his family, or what was left of it. Griefed of the news of two brothers' demise, Sanflen immediately orchestrated the reclaim of their bodies from where they were buried, and had them brought to Cassomir, to give them proper burials. After a while, Sanflen proposed that Cadogan should join the Society; Sanflen even promised to arrange that Cadogan wouldn't have to go through the three years' training as was usually required for new recruits. Cadogan happily agreed since a guards pay was not so amazing, and he had to admit, most of the time it was quite boring too!
