Fionn is the 9th son of a lord who lived in what is now known as county Cork near the end of 12th century in Ireland. Left largely to his own devices, he would spend most of his time in the woods hunting or discussing religion with the local monks until they asked him to leave. His father was killed by a Templar knight one evening over a game of cards. The lands were immediately divided us as was local custom and being so low down on the list, received nothing.
Fionn decided that it would be best to go forth and revenge his father upon the Templar who had since fled to the holy land. His brothers encouraged this and gave him (what they claimed to be anyway) his great grandfathers armor who they assured him was some kind of great hero, perhaps even the famed Fionn Mac Cumhaill for who Fionn was named. As unlikely as this was, Fionn took what he could and followed the trail of the Templar to Acre. After many adventures, he finally found the man who killed his father. Fionn raised his ancient sword and struck him down in a mighty blow. Realizing that the Templars held a great deal of power in this area and he had just killed one of them, he went and hid within the order of the Hospitallers for several years until 1191 where he returned home, built a quiet little cottage on the edge of a great wood and lived out his life in relative peace. Occasionally he would go to the local pub and tell stories of his adventures in the holy land and of the ancient times of Ireland before our lord Jesus Christ walked these lands and of the old Gods who came over the seas with us when they settled on the Emerald Island’s shores.
