Through the Prophet's Eye
I don’t remember anything about my creation or any one from my batch. All that connects me is my ghulra on my forehead and series of digits on my forearm, 033073. Some say that batch is my family. I’m still not sure what that means. The only family I feel I have is Corolus, the royal family and the church.
I started writing these after Corolus’s death. After I realized what my new purpose was. Maybe this is what beings do, beings not like myself.
Who am i? What am i? Why am I here? This is all I could think of after they took from me all I knew. It was all I thought I was. It was all I thought I was to be for the rest of my life, what ever that is. I don’t know any more. When the treaty was signed giving me my freedom I was confused. As I’m sure most of my kind were, we didn’t know what freedom was. I just knew I was born and was to be a squire and eventually fight beside Carolus. He explained how I was able to do what I wanted and do as I wished. I was not bound to him. I didn’t have to work for him or even live in Thrane. I still didn’t understand. I told him I wanted to work for him. I wasn’t meant to do anything else. I told him I wanted to be his squire and train to be a paladin. After that he started to pay me a wage. I guess it’s what you get when free. I didn’t know what to do with it. I just piled my earnings in a chest in the room Carolus gave me. There were too many things happening, too many things I didn’t understand. And at that time I didn’t like the change. It’s taken years to adjust to this freedom. I still don’t think I enjoy it fully. Why did they feel the need to take away what I was? Why make me for a purpose only to take that away from me. It’s been years since Corolus’s death. And I’m no closer to feeling fulfilled. A great man died in a treacherous way. He should have died in battle. I thought I would feel fulfilled after hunting down and killing Genero. I didn’t. I thought I would be at peace continuing cause.
I’m about a half day outside Breland. Leaving Thrane was an important step in whatever this freedom is to mean to me. I’ve done all I can in Thrane. I brought honor back to Corolus’ name. And the church elevated my rank. I fought many battles for them. They were sad to see me go but knew I had a destiny to fulfill. I wish I could be so sure. I don’t know if leaving was the right thing. I know there was more to this conspiracy against the church. The last scum I killed was meeting someone in Breland. I’m not sure what ill find. I’ve learned that uncertainty is party of this freedom. I still don’t like it.
I assisted the church of the Sovereign Host and towns people in Breland with several of the boarder battels. The church was very grateful and surprised being that im a paladin of the Silver Flame.
Genero is Corolus’s brother. Corolus was part of the royal family’s guard provided by the church. Genero was conspiring against the church and was caught by he brother. His brother stabbed him in the back during their argument. The church allowed me to hunt down and kill Genero and some of his conspirators.
