Awright, that's settled.
My game:
Hunters of Letrua; Character list
Also Player / Monster stats, skill lists.

My characters:
Tugs Tails, the goblin that was sort of a trapper and wears a bear's tail at his neck, for some reason - Lair of the Mountain King (Run by Thinks)
Alex Sparo, A city boy, poor of sight, who has learned to manipulate people and make the most of what he, and others, have - Trinity Isles (Run by Mort)
Mehriv Turajin, a Noble Dragonborn Sorcerer sent from his clan because he wasn't dragony enough. - The Wandering Archipelago (Run by Thinks)

Wait, how would I be a good tie-in? I'm not averse to it, but Kal has spent his entire life in a tiny village deep in the forest. This is his first trip to civilization, and by "civilization" I mean a small remote trading post. His tie-in to the party is that his mother (a human ranger) once did a service for the family of our noble dragonborn, and hopes that will gain him a friend. How would he know our new orphan friend?

(Still need to update my gear. Yes, I know I'll have to purchase a holy symbol, but thanks for the reminder.)

I do kind of wish Acolyte didn't force you to take Insight, especially given that among the suggested Acolyte traits are "has little experience with the outside world" and "is too ready to trust." Both of which Kal has. Automatic proficiency in "sense motive" doesn't really seem to fit. Oh well.

A fair point. I still haven't had a chance to go over everyone else's backstory yet, but I could probably tweak my own a bit if necessary.

I hear ya. I'm over here sitting on Sleight of Hand, which, while it meshes better with the background, still doesn't really fit all that great with my character.

Based on Syli's background of someone helping her out when she was in a pinch, I was figuring that Kal came to her aid, as two folks lost/alone in the world, they could have paired up and she opted to follow along on Kal's trip to find and meet up with an old family acquaintance.

That makes sense. If we can figure out where that happened. Somewhere on the road, I guess.
