A Troubled Time
I was born to rich parents 25 years ago, in the city of (insert city name here), due to my parents wealth i had an education that few can afford. Whilst attending these schools it became apparent to the teachers that not only was i tall and strong for my age but also possessed a keen intellect. Being a natural in scholl at whatever i put my mind to my parents and teachers where somewhat surprised (and majorly disappointed) when i made it known that i wish to be a soldier. In my last few years in school i spent alot of time reading the old texts in the library of ancient mysteries from around the lands, many times i read long into the night sitting by a candle reading these texts. The teachers soon tired of seeing wasting my talents and decided that i should learn the tongue of other important races. I had read much on the people of the Elves and Dwarves and decided that if i should learn other tongues then they should be of the noble peoples. Upon graduating it was with much disgust that my parent learnt that i had not changed from the career path that i yearned to do as a child, My father invited his cousin to tea one night and told him what i had wished to do with my life. My fathers cousin was a captain in the city guard and said he would see to it that i was offered a place in its ranks. As time went by i finished my training and took a place amongst the guard, i proved to be very proficient in the lifestyle of a soldier. When the war with the (insert enemy name here) started i immediately volunteered to go. Given my parents power and my uncles rank amongst the guard i was made an officer and sent omongst the first to go to war. For four long years the war raged until finally we were victorius over the enemy, having been promoted and looked upon with much favor by my superiors i was given my choice of postings after the war. I told them that before the war i had been amongst the city guard and that whilst in that service i had on a few occassions seen a division of the guard that was responsible for solving mysteries and things out of the ordinary, it was my greatest wish that i could be detailed to that unit.
