Aca grew up in the loud and often violent Madrak district of the Walled City of Nocturne. He never knew his parents, but grew up as many of the goliath there did and despite his relatively small stature, earned a modicum of respect for his ability to always come back for more. Reluctantly, he was accepted by several of the goliath street gangs that committed minor crimes to make ends meet.
During a simple robbery, Aca stumbled across a magical sword, and upon picking it up, found the item to merge with his arm, warping the skin to chitin of black and red. The robbery went sideways, and Aca left Nocturne for a time.
As he searched for a way to rid himself of the cursed arm, which Aca discovered could be willed into a blade, he found his way to the Free City of Dungannon on the opposite coast of Dominion. There, he met Mr. Gift, the leader of the Dungannon Antiquities Collective, a group that specializes in tracking and collecting the magical items that are present on the continent. There he met Drea, a dragonborn artificer who saw potential in the half-elf, though it pained her to admit it.
Aca learned the Fazzarakian techniques of artificing over several years, and despite the other D.A.C members not trusting Aca fully, Drea and Mr. Gift had the final say on Aca's status with the organization. Aca joined the Finger Gang reluctantly as a mercenary, and slowly found himself thrust into the events that foretold the end of the world. After being slain by Ziestriess and having his cursed arm torn away revealing that it was a phylanctory for Ziestriess, Aca resolved to kill the Mindflayer or face a final death trying.
The final battle against Ziestriess saw Aca meet the mindflayer toe-to-toe, and while the rest of the party was held back by a Dominated Oakfeld and the ruins of a 54' treant crashing through the Burning Bastion, Aca was slain by Power Word Kill. Aca had the Ring of Mind Shielding equipped, which was initially looted by Ziestriess and then Brenna.
