Biography - Arc II
Kenro first appeared as a young boy, engaging in a light-hearted and somewhat one-sided sparring match with "Skwerk". Forcing the small creature to scurry away, he declared himself victorious. His mother then arrived, telling him it was time to leave the earth spirits be and go pray to their ancestors. Though Kenro wanted to keep practicing with his sword, his mother was insistent and mildly rebuked the young boy for disrespecting their ancestors with such an attitude.
However, before they could return to their home, one of Vaelia's fellow Highland Raiders, Ilmssyn, arrived with orders for Vaelia to deploy to a mission to Dariya'ko. Though Kenro wanted to accompany his mother, she insisted he remain at home with his sister. Leaving the two children in the care of their neighbor, Nihemo, Vaelia instructed the boy to take the next caravan to Haltonreibe and find their father if she did not return by the next moon.
Fortunately, Vaelia returned from her mission alive and well, and the boy eagerly embraced his mother.
"I can do a lot of push-ups without stopping, and-and I can lift your halberd and I even beat one of the spirits this morning!" - Trying to convince his mother to allow him to accompany her on a mission.
