A long time ago, in a land far away, two gnomes met each other. One was strong and silent while the other was meek and loud. They got along handsomely and started a family together. Thirty-seven children later, they were rooted from their home in Thyatis. Their commotion as a family caused so much strife within the city that they passed a law that forbid such large families from taking homes within.

I was never given much of an option on what I was to do. I caused so much mischief that I even wondered how my own family put up with me. But now I am grown. Grown all the way up to 3'4". Funny how some people still refer to me as a child, due to my height, when I have more years earned than them.

Even now as a soldier, I still get picked on by the other men. I am not sure if my problem lies within my height or my mouth. But either way, I make sure they know that I am not one that is easily killed. I am not sure what to think with my current situation. My last orders were to go back to the city of Thyatis. I wonder how I will be welcomed...
