Jaeger never asked for this life. He was going to be a money changer, like his father and uncle, but one sleepless night changed his life forever. Jaeger was eight when it happened. He was sick and had slept all day, so he wasn’t sleepy when night came. The rest of his family was fast asleep in their house, but Jaeger had given up on sleep. He climbed onto the roof to look at the stars. Suddenly, the sky lit up like it was on fire, brighter than even at midday. Jaeger looked up and a flaming ball streaked across the sky, crashing to the ground. Jaeger had seen falling stars before and he thought this must be it. Jaeger looked around, but no one seemed to have woken. He climbed down from the roof and ran through the town, trying to locate the fallen star.
On the edge of town, on Farmer Gustav’s land, Jaeger found a huge crater. In the center was the star. It was near the size of a horse and still glowing as Jaeger approached it. Jaeger felt a strange calm as he approached the piece of the heavens, almost being drawn to it. As he approached, he could feel the heat of the still smoldering piece of sky, yet he was undetered. He needed to get closer. Finally, Jaegar reached the star. It was giving off waves of heat and was so bright Jaegar had to close his eyes to protect them. The young boy reached out with both of his arms and touched the burning star.
His screams brought the farmer and his wife to his aid. No one know how long he was touching it, but by the time the farmer reached him, the star had cooled and become a simple, but large piece of rock. Jaegar’s arms and hands, however, were charred, blackened, and nearly useless. Several in the town suggested they simply be cut off, but Jaeger refused. Slowly, feeling came back to his limbs, but the damage was done and he found it difficult to hold things tightly ever again.
The more dramatic change was not with Jaeger’s arms though. The young man himself was changed. He would wander endlessly throughout the nights, constantly looking up at the sky. He was uneasy in any place with a full roof and soon his parents cut away holes in his room, so Jaeger could see the sky. Jaeger was rarely cold and fires sometimes flared up in his presence. His mother would often find him asleep with a strange, shimmering covering over him like a blanket of stars that would disappear as soon as she touched it. Some claimed he was mad, some that he was possessed, and other that he was touched by the gods. Jaeger never refuted them, though he did feel a special touch when he offered prayers to Sarenae and Pharasma, and especially Desna. Still, all the priests could not explain him, though the priests of Desna claimed he had touched her soul.
Jaeger grew older and quickly had to leave his home. He followed the endless sky and it brought him to many places. He learned to explore his gifts and harness them. He joined adventurers to stop plagues; he fought beside the Dawn Scouts at the Battle of Highring; he guided Sir Gavin Kilroy through the forests of nightmares; and he served as counsel to Lord Virgil Shelton. When the Insatiable Queen began to move her forces through the portal, the heavens called out to Jaeger again.
