Subject  Treikh's past

As a child, Treikh was very different from the other children.  Rather
than spending his time playing games, he was constantly learning.  Ther
children.  Rather than spending his time playing games, he was
constantly learning.  He had an early interest in magic, and as a young
child surprised his parents by creating his own meals using magic. 
Throughout his education, Treikh was continually the top student in his
classes.  He surprised all his teachers by doing some things even they
couldn't do.  His parents, who were both mages, were very proud of him
and hoped that he might one day become a member of the Conclave.  They
also had dreamed to join the Conclave at Treikh's age, but a large fire
had injured them and destroyed their chances of joining.  Treikh, eager
to fulfill his parents' dreams, decided to do his best to join the White
Robes of the Conclave.  He also loved the idea of being in company with
other mages similar to himself. Treikh had many chances during his
childhood to train his magical skills. He had many frightening
experiences, but he rescued himself and others on many occasions because
of his clear thinking during those times.  Once on his birthday, a giant
troll attacked Treikh's house.  Treikh put his magic skills to work and
immediately rushed out to defeat the troll.  His parents were utterly
astonished when he defeated the troll with a giant fireball, for they
had not taught him any such thing.  Treikh had a habit for learning
things on his own, and because of this, he achieved levels of magical
skills that surpassed those of his fellow students.  When Treikh came of
age, he didn't immediately set his mind on joining the Conclave because
he was unsure he was good enough for the Conclave.  He had an appetite
for perfection, and because of this he went into the depths of Ansalon
to train by himself.  Treikh learned many things during his
explorations, not only about magic, but also weaponry and agility. 
After years of training in solitude, he had nearly forgotten about his
dream to join the Conclave, but it was resurrected when he met a Black
Robe, who urged him to petition.  Now Treikh hopes to join the famed
White Robes and fight for good in Ansalon.
