My first non star wars build. Vemados (which means courageous) was born in Rainos. Abandoned by his parents, he was sent out into the world with only a dagger to accompany him. He lived off the streets and mugged people for money.
One day, whilst wandering down a forest road, he met a blacksmith dragging a heavy chest. The blacksmith was armed with a spear and had a shield. Leaping into the bushes, he surveyed his victim. Vemados had never attacked an armed man. But he was old and tired out from dragging the chest. The blacksmith's breath was ragged and he jumped in surprise by Vemados' sudden appearance.
"Hold it" barked Vemados in his most ferocious voice.
"I mean no harm" replied the blacksmith coolly.
"Really? Well in that case do you think you could help..."
Vemados couldn't finish his sentence before the blacksmith whirled his spear around and threw it. Vemados barely had time to move and the spear sliced part of his arm out.
He cried out in fury and cut one of man's fingers off.
The blacksmith dropped to the floor and wept.
"I have done no evil! You threatened me, I had no choice!"
Feeling sorry for the old man, Vemados helped him up cautiously and decided to strike a deal.
"I need weapons. I understand you're a blacksmith. If you help me and leave your life behind to join me, I will let you live"
The blacksmith, too pained to realise that Vemados would never be able to kill him, shook his hand and walked with Vemados to his house to collect his belongings.

Thanks for reading! I'll continue the story when I have time and pieces. I don't have many wild / medieval themed pieces / characters. But I'll try my best :D
