Growing up in a small town at the edge of a forest known for its evil lycanthropes, Hex was nearly killed by an ambush which targeted a caravan he was guiding through the woods. A primal spirit saved his life, leaving him cursed as a were-bear. Something is different about his curse, maybe because of the spirit or a blessing of Selune, however he has never suffered involuntary transformations. Learning from the spirit, Hex became a shaman and joined the harpers. His spirit companion seems to be important and not just a normal spirit bound to a shaman. While they haven’t explained it to Hex, the spirit seems to have some strong connection to the Harpers. Shortly after his adventuring started as a harper, a second spirit joined the first, a small bird which is often seen sitting on the bear’s back.
