You have created a second identity that includes

The adopted child of two farmers, Toren Greenly loathed his poor upbringing and always dreamed of a life of wealth and promise, but opportunities to move up in the world were few and far between for someone of his social class. Desperate to escape what he saw as a loathsome fate, he joining the local lords garrison, and while he was strong and a skilled fighter, military life didn't suit him and he decided to desert. Unfortunately on the night when he intended to hatch his plan and sneak off, his village was attacked by goblinoid raiders, and as he was fleeing he came upon a knight, hurt and unable to reach aid.
While he was ambitious and selfish, Toren was a good person at heart, and leaving an injured person to die was far beyond what his conscience would allow, and when he went to remove the disabled warrior's helm he was shocked to find himself staring into his own face. Toren and the knight, who was named Sir Dorian Cundrie, spent the next several days in eachothers' company, and it didn't take them long to realize that the reason they seemed to have identical appearances was because they were in fact twin brothers, and both realized that they were opposite - Toren was brave and ambitious, whilst the cowardly Dorian wanted nothing more than a simple, peaceful life existence.
The two hatched a plan - they would switch identities. Dorian's injuries would allow him to depart from military service and assume Toren's life as a farmer, and Toren would take his twins arms and armor and assume his identity as a wandering knight errant. Since then, the silver-tongued farmboy has claimed the identity of his noble-born twin, traveling and remaining far from home to avoid giving up the ruse. The greatest problem he has had is that he's found he genuinely enjoys doing good and helping others, and he fears that as his fame grows he will find it harder and harder to keep up his masquerade.
Toren is a walking contradiction - a silver-tongued scumbag who nonetheless is a born hero, unflinchingly brave and good-hearted and utterly unable to resist a pretty face or a person in need of help.
