Hagen Zoul is a member of the noble House of Zoul. Many years ago, King Wenceslas had began a campaign to silence all of his dissenters in Bohemia. The House of Zoul was among these dissenters, consequently, Wenceslas ordered his recently appointed Royal Hetman and distant relative, Radzig Kobyla, to deal with Hagen and his family. His family’s castle was burned down, his father was hanged, and their property was confiscated. Like most nobleman who lose their wealth, Hagen turned to banditry along with gaining an everlasting hatred for Sir Radzig.
