Harry Ham Bone wrote:When Umnir was a child, he was very mischevious. He constantly stealing things out of people's pockets, and hiding in places to scared them. This behavior and skill captured the interest of Artemis Stern, an agent of the royal espionage society, the King's Couriers.
On the Day of Choosing (the Rogue wasn't present on the day of choosing, he left much sooner), Umnir was confronted by Artemis and was asked if he wanted to be her apprentice. His father, being a poor carpenter, and wanting a better life for his son than his, gave Umnir full permission to travel with Artemis to the royal capital of Paladin City.
Now, ten years after he left (that's a fitting timeframe for him leaving before the day of choosing, which was only three years ago), Umnir returns with his teacher, who has become a sort of surrogate mother to him because his real mother died of illness when he was just an infant, to his town of birth. He had studied and trained over the years in the skills of an acrobat, an assassin, and especially a thief, and has even been given the ironic nickname of "The Grim" because of his un-mercenary-like chipper attitude. But this new mission bears a fog of mystery, as even his beloved teacher won't tell him why they are returning to Redmont Barony...
Note the necessary changes.
I hadn't considered Artemis being a chick. I guess it doesn't change anything, and means that we have two female masters. That will work.
It occurs to me that I did not state the name of the capital city for you guys. I want this to be unique for you guys, not just a copy of what I did in the past (and that means fresh for me ), so let's go with Paladin City for the bustling city that surrounds Aralua Castle.
