From what I know it was a visit to the Eastern Kingdom when we were allies that led to my mother being pregnant with me. She was offered up to one of the generals in a 'peace' offering because of her beauty. I do not have any features that would make me look any different from another man save maybe for my awesome strength. I intend to rule with an iron fist and subjugate any that stand in my way.
Slick was known to be the kind of person that felt there was no harm in taking from the rich because they had enough already and it should be shared. That had an attraction for me as I was finding it hard to adjust to the new town with what little I had. I met Slick by accident while overhearing him in the market asking for directions to a place I was familiar. I showed him the way to go and he said he knew who I was which shocked me. From there we hit it off well.
