|Mastery Levels & Dice|
Kong was born into a middle class family that loved their farm. He grew up with 4 Siblings of which he was the youngest. The oldest sister always hated him because she thought that he got special treatment for being the youngest. The second oldest sister never really was an independent thinker and agreed that he was definitely spoiled merely because the oldest thought so. His brother was sandwiched in age between these two sisters and got along well with Kong because they shared some of the same interests and would talk for hours about fantastic creatures and magic. This was a natural relationship between two brothers. The third and final sister was slightly older than him and he really enjoyed her company as well.
At about 5 years old Kong’s parents began to fight over the finances of the farm and his mother decided to go away for a while She moved to the city with him and the youngest sister. The other three children stayed to help out their father on the farm.
It took a few months, but his mother finally decided to return to the farm. When they were close to arriving home, a few bandits jumped out of the brush and ambushed them. Their mother ran at the bandits and yelled to the kids to run home. When they arrived, they found their father slain. His dead body had been there for weeks and was covered in rats. Kong’s sister ran away screaming, her never saw her again.
The other children were there hiding in the barn. They told the story of how the bandits had attacked the farm to steal the cows. This was when Kong decided that it was bad luck to have cows. They had only brought trouble to his family. The oldest sister took charge and decided that she would take everyone but Kong with her to find a new life in the city. She had grown to hate him that much over the years.
Alone and scared, Kong returned to the city as well. Life was hard for a while. He tried begging, but was a miserable failure and was starving to death on the streets when a kindly man from a foreign land approached him and offered him a new life. He had taken compassion on the unfortunate orphan.
This was a new life in a new land. Kong quickly learned the new language and was happily surprised to find that his benefactor was a magic user who had taken him in and started training him. The scariness of his past made Kong afraid of being alone ever again. His clingy personality wasn’t too apparent as he always had his faithful teacher there for him.
During his time in training, he did have one experiment go completely awry and as he was attempting to channel electricity though his body there was a huge surge of power that almost killed him. It left him paralyzed for a while and changed his hair from it’s natural black to a fairly unnatural blonde.
At 27 years old he finished his training and realizing that he had given him too much help, his benefactor kicked him out with almost no money to seek his fortune in the world.
