About Brellig Brineson
There be a lotta evil in the world, and sometimes ya need to fight ire with ire.
"Be a man," my father would always tell me. He never did tell me exactly what that meant, but he always told me anyways. I suppose I'll never know. Sea took him two years back, not that he would've wanted it any other way.
I left when he died, I did. Said "Goodbye." to the ocean. Learned a lot, but didn't really sit right with me, standing on a ship without my old man beside me. So I started traveling. Found some good folk... well, maybe not always good, but decent enough company.
One day, though, we got split up. Found myself wandering in an enchanted wood a spell. Bloodly place seemed to go on for ages. Curious thing though, was this tiny fox, all sorts a different colors led me out. Well, he was just the cutest thing, and I didn't wanna leave 'im alone, so I brought him with me. He seemed kindly enough anyways, and took a liking to me real quick.
Then I realized he weren't no ordinary fox. He had magic in him, and I came to find I had magic in me, too. Who'd a thought it? Me, a sailor's son, from a line a proud fighters, with the gift. Still, it bothers me fierce sometimes. I couldn't do anything magical before I found old Brony here, and before the woods. I wonder, did something happen in there?
Well, no matter. He been with me for a while now, and I figure it's about time we departed again. Group's getting back together, heading to some place in Ustalav. That land never sat right with me, but a little adventure might just get my mind offa all this thinking. I just hope I can make my old man proud.
