I am the son of a lowly fisherman in an unknown town on an unknown planet. It was there that my father met my mother and married her, so that I would have two loving parents to care for me as I grew into adulthood. He had little wealth or influence, but his heart was strong, and he always tried to give me what he could to help me grow up well-rounded. But the world we live in is harsh, and not every child grows up happily with both loving parents watching over them.
My father was taken away by men who had dark intentions before my fourth birthday. My mother cried and cried as she told me he'd gone on a long trip to work abroad to earn money for us. That night, the men came to our house in force and took everything they could. But, the next morning, I sighed with relief as I saw that, at least, they left one thing of value in our house behind.
