In the year 535 of our Lord, Wufei Quatre was born into a poor farming family. His father worked as a peasant in a village called Laihua in the land of Zhongnan Province and his mother worked as a house servant at one of the larger estates. The boy was raised with love, but also suffered hardship. As soon as he was big enough to hold a knife his parents sent him out with an older brother and two other young men to cut wood to sell in the market town, where they would earn a few coins for their meager food supply.
