Code In as much as he could be considered to have an regimented system of beliefs, they exist as follows:
True death is the aim of all "life," as it was. Recklessness that may cause death is improper and foolish. Helping out the less fortunate (giving food to the hungry, giving alms to the poor, protecting and championing the weak) is good -- it lets them come closer to achieving enlightenment and true death. Magic, as a philosophical endeavor and pursuit, is the best ends towards the achievement of true death. Religion can be an aid, but is often a crutch.
His objection to chaos and evil largely stems from their undermining the order of things as they are and their prevalence in everyday life. He feels that his calling is not so much to do good for its own sake, as it is to maintain the grand plan of the multiverse, which is easiest to do by doing good.
Background As a youth in his family's holds in Ysgard, he encountered a wandering priest of Kelemvor. The priest, fleeing from a fundamentalist sect of worshippers, sought solace with the dwarves for a few months. During this time he was fascinated by the visitor, spent all his spare time talking with him, asking him questions about the planes, about religion, about life. Finally, when the time came for the priest to move on, he did, too, appointing himself as the priest's body-guard and protector. For ten years, the pair wandered the planes, staying just about anywhere they could gain refuge, bartering with fiends when necessary and then atoning with celestials afterwards. One day, in the Outlands near Pandemonium, their luck ran out, and an assassin mortally wounded the priest while he slept. Before dying, the priest sent him to Sigil, instructing him to meet with Dazaros Cairne, a powerful wizard that would be happy to continue his tutelage. He was a member of the Dustmen. It was during this time that he joined the Dustmen, rising to an Initiate of the Fifth Circle. His passion for Kelemvor and his view of death as an extension of life's journey and a path to enlightenment hold him back in the organization, but he is willing to compromise neither.

He's still getting to know Hrothgeat, his earth mephit, but is generally happy with the result. [Insert most recent adventure here]
