My early years were split between the bright, breezy ocean, sun shining on my face and sounds of sea birds in my ears, and the gloom of island caves filled with creeping vines, bats, insects, and the heavy silence of the darkness beyond. Fitting, I suppose. My mother belongs to that sunny warm world. My father… well, she never told me he was my father, but sometimes you just know a thing. He belongs to the Tangledark. Where the jungle meets that heavy silence, and they both brood, scheme, and birth deep dreams together.
When I had seen about twelve years, my mother decided to “civilize” me. She placed me in the service of an Aerdy noble. It did not last long. I was unruly, and they expected me to wear shoes. Being young, emotional, and mostly full of unsound ideas, I snuck aboard one of the many ships at the docks. Maybe I was imagining a life of bold piracy, like some of the stories I had heard. As it turned out, the ship belonged to the Scarlet Brotherhood.
It was a close thing, that they didn’t throw me overboard. Chum for some unimaginable creature of the deep. But the Captain was a relatively good-humored man, as such things go, and was greatly entertained by my clawing, kicking, and biting of the Quartermaster as he tried to give me the heave-ho overboard. I became the official cabin boy and spent many months aboard ship, fetching, carrying, and learning what there was to learn of life upon the sea. Most importantly, nobody tried to make me wear shoes.
Eventually those days, which I now look back upon as sort of a waking dream, ended as well. There was a fierce sea battle. Many died, including the Captain. We managed to limp home, dubious victors of the encounter. The First Mate gave me the Captain’s sword, which I still carry, before sending me off to be schooled to useful purpose by some very official looking members of the Brotherhood. It turns out that I have a knack for the art of espionage. Combined with my steadily increasing ability grown from the seeds of witchery taught to me by my maybe father, the Scarlet Brotherhood saw in me a very useful tool.
I’ve been a tool for what feels like an eternity now, but is only two plus years by my count. This is where you find me. Doing what tools do, being useful in the hands of those who wield them. And wearing shoes.
