As a boy, Argomir went into a forbidden cave and stole a bag of gold. He came out and was cursed because his family was taken by pirates who came to steal the gold. He is now doomed to walk the earth to find his family and kill the pirates who took them. His only clue is a fancy dagger left behind by one of the pirates. He was brought to Westwall keep by Sir Tipkraft and became good friends with Eugene.
