I was but a wee lad on the turnip farm, and my folks
an' i had come to the city, something about my father becoming a blacksmith.
Anyway, we went and saw this guy, iron jack. He sent my folks out into the
kobold mines for an iron slab, they never came back. I was on my own at 7
for 2 weeks before the constable noticed there was anything wrong. The constable
tried to take care of me, but there were too many villians running around
town. I cut myself fairly badly playing with the constable's broadsword one
day, and went to town square to find a kind empath to help me out. When I
was there, I saw this man dressed in black slip into hiding. I was apparently
the only one who noticed this. Well, this stranger waited for another to
walk by, and I saw him nonchalantly slip out of hiding and follwo this feller.
I followed behind him and noticed the man in black reach into the stranger's
backpack. He pulled out a big shiny gem of some sort.
Again, i seemed to be the only one who noticed anything,
the man in black did it so quickly and elegantly. I went up to that man and
asked him what he was doing. He grabbed me by the throat and dragged me into
an alleyway. He pulled out a knife, and disapearred. The next thing i knew,
i had a knife in my shoulder, and the constable was dragging the man in black
away. The same empath who healed my wounds healed the stab wound. I followed
the constable. He stripped the man in black down, and threw him in this jail
cell. I went to the window out of curiosity, and started talking to the man
in black. I found out his name was Elfstan. Every day I went back there.
Eventually, we became friends. I talked the constable into letting him go
after about 3 years. Then, he began to teach me in the ways of thievery.
He taught me that a warrior could hold someone up, and be hunted down if
that someone could identify him, but a rogue could steal without anyone knowing,
and not get caught, thereby stealing more. He showed me all the ways to hide
from people, slight of hand, and even to ambush people. We practiced every
day in town. Usually somewhere in the slums. Anyhow, I botched an attempt
on this wizard named galan. He whirled around just as Elfstan pushed me away.
He challenged Elfstan to a duel, and as my mentor hid,
the wizard gestured and became invisible. The ground shook, and Elfstan fell
from hiding. Galan gestured at him, and from his hands came a great surge
of lighting, so powerful that my mentor was instantly incinerated. I was
completely amazed by this power, and though i was saddened at the loss of
Elfstan, I stalked the wizard to his home. There, i told him that i was an
orphin, and that his power filled me with awe, and that i would like to learn
how to harnass it. We too, became good friends, and he taught me in the ways
of magik. While I was still his pupil, I was testing out a few of my newest
spells on rats in the old catacombs, where I chanced to come upon Anjell.
We fell in love almost immediatly, and were soon engaged. Then, mine brother,
Dizzledorf, introduced me to a bunch called "the wolf clan." I was adopted
by Megraill, and have spent the last few years hunting, picking and defending
