Kivan was a stoic man of few words. He was rather undiplomatic, cold in nature and extremely gruff with others. As such he did not readily become friendly with others.
A few years before the Year of the Banner, 1368 DR, Kivan and Deheriana took a romantic vacation away from their daily lives. The couple were waylaid and captured by a group of bandits led by the half-ogre Tazok. The bandit leader tortured both of them for his own enjoyment. While Kivan was able to escape with his life, Deheriana was not so fortunate.
Some time that year or next, he Kivan began working with several other adventurers tasked with escorting a future bride to the home of her groom in Amn. Among the others involved were the noble paladin Ajantis, the warrior Shar-Teel Dosan, the Cyricist priest Tiax, and Eldoth Kron. Unfortunately the group was almost immediately assaulted by a band of hobgoblins. Kivan's fate after the battle was unknown.
