*You see a young elf leaning against a well. He is sucking on a pieEL-DB.comce of honeycomb which falls from his hand when he sees you enter.*
Who are you?I'm Aliester and you're not allowed back here. You need to leave.
Why not?This is an employees only area, like most back rooms, and you don't work here. Now please go.
What work do you do?Why are you still here? Keep your voice down before you get me in trouble. I'm an apprentice here. I do the all dirty work.
Dirty workI do the stuff no one else wants to do. I polish the gemstones for the rings, I haul all the heavy gems around to wherever they're needed, I make sure those potions over there don't burn while they're brewing, and I make the gem sanders. It's hard work and the pay sucks.
Gem sandersDon't let this get around, but there's nothing magical about them. It's sticky business, though. You see I get some beehive, break it apart, and then rub it all over a piece of paper. I sprinkle sand from the river bank on it and that's it... a gem sander. Zantos may make them differently... I don't know.
Why stay?You really aren't going to leave are you? Clark may not look like it, but he's a powerful mage, the last in a long line of mages that descend from the Slayer, and now I'm next in line. I only hope to be as powerful as Clark one day.
The SlayerOnce, long ago when Portland was just a village, the countryside was ravaged by a dragon. A powerful wizard from a far away land arrived one day and killed tEL-DB.comhe dragon. He gave the scales of the dragon to the village and it grew very rich from their sale. That's how Portland got to be the thriving city that it is.
The Slayer decided to stay in Portland and after a time, he took an apprentice. When the apprentice became a mage, he took an apprentice of his own. This has happened time and again in an unbroken chain with the latest links being Clark and me.
