Cross grew up in a small hamlet near the Elven border with his friend Maverick Wingover. Both had an interest in magic, but while Wingover liked magic and what he could potentially do with it Cross loved magic. Together they ventured into the Elven lands and were quickly picked up by a group of Elven rangers. The elves escorted the pair back home the first time, and the second time, eventually through sheer persistence Maverick and Cross were allowed to see elven society. Cross became apprentice to an elf wizard who took him to the Crestfall magic school.
One day when Cross tried to learn a summoning spell he accidentally summoned Maverick, Colleen, and several elementals. This event coincided with Master Zyfram’s coup of the school. After the trio finished off the elementals and were about to have a very touching reunion. Cross’s master teleported the three of them, and several other apprentices, away from the school to a nearby temple to Iomedae where Cross met Rush, Fitch, and Stormfall. While the clerics were busy trying to get in touch with others and establish a proper response Cross wanted to hurry back and try to save his master. Fitch was eager to get into battle, as was Rush, Stormfall urged caution and suggested they wait for the Cleric’s to make a decision, but Maverick supported Cross, and Colleen suggested they wait one day to recuperate and be ready to go at Zyfram fully prepared given that he had taken over the school so rapidly. In the end they went with Colleen’s plan.
Between Colleen and Rush they cleared a path through the undead outside the main gate and burst through the front door. They made it to the great hall where Zyfram had stationed several apprentices that had turned to his side. Cross and Stormfall kept them at bay while Fitch and Rush dealt with them. Colleen was on crowd control, keeping the undead from swarming them. To keep the undead at bay while the others went to the headmaster’s office to deal with Zyfram Colleen and Wingover stayed behind, ultimately they would be overwhelmed and Maverick was forced to transport himself to another plane to survive after Colleen was killed, but the two managed to buy enough time for the others to succeed in stopping Zyfram.
After Zyfram was slain, several of the professors of the academy were freed from a mind altering effect Zyfram had put them under, Cross’s master amongst them and he took up the post of headmaster at the request of the other professors. Once the funerals for Fitch and Colleen were over with, Cross took up a now vacant post as a teacher of basic magic for young apprentices.
