Themesong: Brian Crain - A Simple Life
History: Born to his parents, Nassinia and Phuula, in the settlement of Kiezet of south lowland Psycrhel. Despite being among the poorer families, they seemed generally content. Nassinia followed a considerably radical way of life, at least compared to the status quo of Psycrhel, in that he was openly caring and affectionate with his family, believing that the old way of life caused more harm than good. This was introduced to Talon at a very young age, becoming the norm for his upbringing rather quickly. As the change in lifestyle had just started to be welcomed, Nassinia fell to his death trying to reach a fruit to give to his wife, his passing shocking the settlement, especially Phuula. Unable to properly cope with the loss, she grew distant from her son, falling back to the usual lifestyle of Psycrhel, causing Talon much confusion and internal conflict. He didn't know what to do and he had no friends, so he took his need to care to a small patch of flowers near his family hut. Other children were pushed to try to "temper" young Talon and did so by cruelty-- assault, harassment, and even stomping the flowers he cared so much for. Talon could not handle such a shift in his world and could only bottle up his emotions, which dulled his eyes over time. Eventually came a point where Talon would not leave his house and a forced entry revealed the eyes of the corrupted. Talon was bound, blindfolded, and taken by force past the border into Faradus and dumped off, left to fend for himself in a strange new region.
