Post Fighters Academy (Callineb)
Oh Mother! Will you stop your fussing the gangly young lad huffed at his mother. He watched her ring her hands and it tugged at his heart, but he pushed it aside. After all it would not do for him to show his emotions, especially not now that he was stepping out beyond the village. Stepping out in to the world. He was a man now or at least that is what they told him at his initiation when he had counted his twelfth spring a little over a moon ago.

They had named him Dragonslayer after his father and marked him with a crude shape of a dragon on his cheek. But Toby was no more a dragon slayer than anyone else was at his age. He was but a lad; he first had to learn how to slay a dragon. This was the reason why he was leaving today. This was the reason he was travelling to a place called Callineb. He looked at his mother embracing her quickly he turned and walked down the dusty road. Never for a moment turning to look back, for he knew if he did he many never leave.

The master of arms at the big house had said it would be three days travel before he would reach Callineb in the west. That first he had to make his way through the dense forest that was as older than Callineb, as old as the Isle itself. People told stories of things that lived in the forest and Toby was grateful for the lift he had been offered by the old pedlar. The pedlar dropped him at the northeastern gate of Callineb.

Toby stood for a while in front of the gate. Contemplating the step he was about to take. Would he step across the invisible line that would lead him to be a grand master dragon slayer, or would he turn his back now and live in hiding, disguising his brand. He shock his head slightly took a breath and took the step. He looked back this was the only time in his journey that he had done so and said good bye to his past. Looking forward he said hello to his future. The future of Toby Dragonslayer.
