Born in Armenia to a family he does not remember, given a name he does not know, Sulayman was taken by the Ottoman Turks to become a janissary. From the young age of seven, his young life was hard from its outset. Cultural conversion began as soon as he was recruited, which he didn’t take well to. Religious conversion began at ten, which he did not enjoy either. He began to see how meaningless culture and religion was to people, a commodity to be traded, one faith for another. His bitterness began then, a feeling that would persist for nearly all of his life. At twelve, training began and that he enjoyed. Learning how to fight brought him happiness, the rush that came from winning a sparring match was a brief reprieve from the harsh reality he lived in. However, as time went on and discipline began being prized above all else, he fell behind. His dirty tricks were frowned upon, and he found himself being more and more harshly disciplined. His bitterness grew and festered, and he developed a hatred of the sultanate that had tried to brutally ensure loyalty. His fate was not as a janissary, that much he knew. Time passed, and as the sultanate grew in ambition, so did the demand of troops for war with the Byzantines. In a particularly brutal battle against the Byzantine Empire, Sulayman could not stand it anymore. He fled from battle. Once the fighting subsided and he was found out, he was branded a traitor, his last name stripped of him and replaced with Hain, meaning traitor. He was dishonourably discharged from the janissaries, to his great joy. He wandered the Mediterranean, taking odd jobs where he could until ending up in Rome, where he became an underground pit fighter. There, his dirty tactics and need for freedom was satisfied.
