As far as I can remember I have been somewhat of an outcast. I was never really part of the clan I grew up in. I was found by them. They raised me as one of their own. As far as I have been led to believe, my real parents left me with this clan so I would avoid becoming a slave like them inside their own clan. Imagine that, being a slave among your own people.

In any event, I was given a moderate amount of schooling. It annoyed me at great lengths when I had to attend sessions with other children. They were either disrespectful, or distasteful in their attempts at picking on me. I fought back, and then they stopped their games. I think ripping an arm off another child was a bit too far.

I was disciplined for the act but not as harshly as the children who were the instigators. It seemed to me that I was given some form of accommodation for my actions for the following week I started training. I was taken to Master Shadow. That is the only name I have ever known him as. He taught me everything I know about being a shadow.

I was sent out with other prospects on a scouting mission to prove our worth. We were met by prospects from other clans. The most powerful among them was Meesha's clan. Her power was renown and she was revered by all the clans. All of the ones I would be traveling with would all be prospects from various training backgrounds from various clans. It was not uncommon for the clans to gather and send out their newest warriors to test their mettle.

We were to set out and find out why the dragons left and where they went. The only leads we had was that a great power had emerged from the north. So we went north. After a few weeks we found entire areas wrecked with war. Bodies lied around everything. And not just human, elf, or dwarf but also that of a dragon. It was a small dragon but it was still a dragon none the less.

We investigated but all we could truly determine is that some of the beings were undead and that there was a dead dragon. We decided that we needed to see more and investigate further. We found tracks that led away from the battle. It seemed like the small dragon may have been alone in its battle here. Whatever killed it was still out there. And we needed to find it.

We followed the trail. It was an obvious trail and whatever left it did not try to hide it. We heard roaring in the distance. And we could see fires raging in the same direction. We ran as fast as we could to see what the commotion was. Running was a bad idea. It caught the attention of something fierce. It came upon us from above.

I do not know who saw it coming first but my first reaction was to use the shade to my advantage. It was my first lesson and the only thing that saved my life. A huge dragon landed among us and began tearing and ripping through the others. It breathed fire upon us and scorched the earth beneath us. The heat and fire was the last thing I remembered of that moment.

When I finally did awaken, it was to an elf, he was healing my wounds. He told me a tale about "The return of The Whispered One" and I fell back asleep. I awoke later completely revived. Whatever magic this elf used to heal me was beyond anything I have ever seen. He gave me two options, one return to those who sent me out to die, or the other was to accompany him. I would not return to Meesha or the other clans willingly.

I went with the curious man. I began to think it was a mistake soon afterwards. It seemed that all he would do was preach about "The Whispered One" no matter where we went. And then when it seemed like the taint of "The Plague" was infecting me he healed me with a talisman. With the talisman came a tattoo. The talisman and the tattoo are marked by the Phoenix Watch. I now am an inductee into the Phoenix Watch. I do not really know the magnitude of what this means for me but I feel that it has changed me.
