When I was a kid, I wasnt like the other Silvenesti elves. I would spend
time with other races, as well as my own. To me, I believe that the races of
Ansalon are equal in every way. For my belief, I was shunned from the
forest. I never trusted elves after that. So I then packed up my things and
headed for a new beginning. My first encounter with magic was a day into my
travels. A knarl had attacked me in a cave. He clubbed me in the arm,
disarming me. He came back for another swing and knocked me in the head. I
was losing consciousness. All of a sudden a flash of lightning erupted form
the darkest corner of the room. The lightning slammed into the knarl,
electrocuting it. It collapsed onto the ground, dead. In my blurry vision, I
saw a black robed mage. He picked me up from the ground and we fled. Then I
lost consciousness. When I awoke, I was in Neraka, the mage standing over
me. I then noticed that it was an adult Silvenesti. I recognized him from
Silvanesti. I was surprised that he had helped me even though he knew who I
was. I became trusting of this elf. He offered to teach me all he knew, and
I accepted. The magic he taught me came to me easily, easier than most
people would learn. I was always thirsty for more magic. He recommended that
I should try for the conclave. He talked very highly of it.

Subject     Gerrick's Reincarnation

Gerrick's father was said to be born from the god Solinesti, it was said
that Gerrick's family had powers. His father was the town hero, so when
Gerrick was born everyone expected great things from him. When Gerrick was
14, he had killed a Griffon with nothing but a dagger! People had really
started to worship Gerrick when his dad died, Gerrick was only 16. After his
dad's death, Gerrick was never the same. He did things he wasn't proud of
like kill children and looting houses. Gerrick was thrown in jail, and was
to remain there forever. Well five days he had been locked up, when
Gerrick's shackles clicked open. At first he took it as an illusion, but it
wasn't he was free. Gerrick ran from his town never to return. Gerrick knew
that he had just witnessed some of powers his father always said the family
had. Gerrick is looking for answers on this "gift" and how to improve them.

Subject     Gerrick's new beginning

As a young boy, I've always found knowledge gratifying. The more you
knew, the more powerful you'd become. Well one day I was hunting in a forest
when I saw the most peculiar thing! It was a glowing orb of light. Right of
the bat, I took it as an illusion, but then it started to come closer and
closer. I ran fast back to the village, but all of a sudden I couldn't see!
I ended running straight into a tree. I passed out after that. When I awoke,
I was in a dungeon, and shackled to the wall. The smell of goblins was thick
in the air. I tried to break free but it was no use. Then a goblin came done
the stairs and stopped in front of me. The goblin wore long robes that
dragged on the ground. He also carried a staff. Right then, I knew that this
is the goblin that has been setting fires around the village. I gathered all
my strength, and lunged forward, pushing off the wall. I ran straight into
the shaman as I burst free from the shackles. The shaman being stunned, I
bolted out of there, but not before grabbing the staff from the shaman. I
got out and ran home. When I got there, people were muttering and pointing
at me in awe. I looked at myself, and I was glowing. From that day forward,
I am devoted to learn more about magic!

Subject     Gerrick's Disobedience

Meriele, Gerrick's master, had told Gerrick to stay in the safety of the
wayreth tower. After his last incident out, she didn't want him going out
again. "You need to train more before you go out. Gerrick, you are too
inexperienced," she had said. Gerrick knew there were dangerous things
outside the tower, but like everyone youngin, he had to check to see what
was out there that was so dangerous. Gerrick had heard roars of what sounded
like a beast. He needed to go check it out. So Gerrick ignored Meriele words
and went into the beyond. At first everything was fine, until the sun went
down; all sorts of noises could be heard. Each and every one of them
frightened Gerrick. He tried to find his way back to the tower, but he was
lost. Then all of a sudden there were rustling leaves and snapping twigs
coming from the north. Then what sounded like a growl. Gerrick tried to run
away from the creature, but found he couldn't avert its gaze. It lunged at
Gerrick, but not before a bright light blinded everything in the area. Then
Gerrick was grabbed by someone and transported. When Gerrick regained his
sight, Meriele was standing in front of him hands on her hips and shaking
her head no. Gerrick knew she was ashamed of him. Meriele then punished
Gerrick for doing such a stupid thing. He was forced to clean out the
stables. Gerrick grabbed the supplies and went to the stables. He first
tended to grooming the horses, brushing and feeding them. Then it was time
for the part Gerrick hated the most cleaning the feces. Gerrick grabbed a
pooper scooper and started to clean it up, putting the turds in a big
sanitation sack. Gerrick had to plug his nose the whole time. Gerrick was up
late that night, he had learned his lesson big time. He would not leave the
tower without permission.
