I, am Lastrios. I was given this name because my mother believed I was destined for great things but that is not what I believe. I believe that life is made up of choices and coincidences that favors those that take advantage of their opportunities, whether through ethical or unethical methods.
I am known as the Raider by many because of who my father wanted me to be, not because of who I aspire to become. It is a title that will follow me throughout my life but will never define how I choose to live.
I was born a Human because my parents were were both Human. My birth was nothing out of the ordinary but the choices I make along my journey will be extraordinary as I start at the age of 16 according to the years of man.
I stand at 6 feet 2 inches tall with a lean athletic frame that I will grow into as I develop throughout my journey. My tan skin, black hair, and bright brown eyes intimidate those who believe in the false rumors that were created in fear. Rumors that I was a cursed wolfchild because of my piercing appearance.
I value versatility so that I can maximize my capabilities and cover up any weaknesses. I see myself as one who follows fighters and magic-users because of how I aspire to become a skilled master in combat and magic. I want to create a company of monster hunters by first doing independent contract work. I intend to use the revenue from mercenary contracts to obtain commercial assets that will become support a merchant network of my design. I view alliances are necessary to achieve success and that plentiful opportunities can sprout from them.
I intend to gain power by creating alliances and developing stable economies. I intend to fiercely defend my lands and the lands of my allies as we look to consolidate power. This is the path I choose to becoming the next Ruler of Kings. Thus, I now start this journey towards creating a civilization that moves the world forward.
A Sentimental Value: Ring, Plain
Before venturing off, I knew I could not leave without taking the plain ring that my family has kept for generations. My parents never explained the importance of the ring to our family but in all honesty, the unknown black material this ring is made of seems to be worthless. I carry this ring as a reminder that things can be invaluable to some while worthless others. The ring's unknown material is a reflection of the uncertainty of the future and there is a price to everything.
I have known Jaxel since we were toddlers. Our mothers were close friends so he and I naturally became close. Blood couldn't make our bond any stronger. Jaxel is the most loyal person I know, so it was no surprise that he followed me on my new journey. I found it humorous that he tried to follow me in secret. He explained that my mother made him promise that we would take care of each other as long as we had breath. It was unfortunate my mother passed away before she could tell me to uphold the same promise.
Whatever the future may hold for me, there is no one I would trust more than Jaxel.
The Beauty of Lady Fluke
With blue eyes like the shining sea,
Any man would become a castaway if they caught a glimpse of her
With blonde hair that invites curiosity of her heritage,
A rare sight of a gorgeous combination of features
Behold the beautiful Lady Fluke.
