Arthur was a soldier who worked with my father. It wasn't until my mother died that he received the letter requesting he watch over me and help guide me on my journey. He knew me as a young boy, and had other choice opportunities presented before him, but he remembered me with fondness and decided he owed it to my father. When he arrived in town not long after me he observed me for a while before confronting me. I am sure it was to reinforce his choice and strengthen his resolve. He approached me in the tavern when I was tired from training as a bodyguard. "I am surprised you decided that career path, you seemed to be fascinated with magic as a child." He said. "Greetings Arthur," me having recognized him from both his look and his armor, "I was going to be a magic user yes, but the choice wasn't initially open to me when I arrived here." He nodded before replying "that makes sense, you'd be a piss poor choice for a soldier, stick to what your good at and you'll be just fine." I look at him shocked at his words "Now hold on, I'm doing the best I can with the choices I'm given! Did you come here to insult me?" Me having grown unaccustomed to his bluntness and never on the receiving end. In reply he held up his hands in an appeasing gesture. "I meant no offence, and if anything it was a complement for you recognizing the folly of such a profession, I am in fact here to help." He pulled out his letter and showed me. We spent the rest of the evening discussion the letter, trying to determine the sender, and figuring out how we could benefit each-other. Myself trying to determine how he would benefit me and what gains I could get with him present, and him, on whether or not he should see how things play out, or if he regretted turning down more profitable career decisions to aid me. At the end we shook hands, and he said he'll see me tomorrow. His decision being made up, myself seeing the benefit of someone with to confide. I am still unsure how to use him, but as long as he stays true to his words he could benefit me greatly in someway I'm sure.
