Miles Adagio

"The hell inside cannot survive without expression. The first step is to put down the brush of destruction."

Description:

I was born in the wilds of the great northern forests of Crimaad, to a warrior clan only known by their throat rattling battle cry. It was there that I learned what I know of cruelty, of the joy that can only be felt in the suffering of others.

That I am still alive today while my people rest in unmarked graves is because I also had another teacher. She demonstrated to me a foreign concept called mercy, but the subject was difficult and I a poor student. For years I hunted her, hoping that in her blood I would find a balm for my wounded pride. Oh how parched I was for vengeance, yet she denied me even a single sip.

I cannot remember every step of our journey, for they were as many as they were small, but in the end a desire was born: to be free of this unending anger. Her fists blocked the only escape I knew, and so I was forced to find a new way. It was not easy. As we practiced meditation, outward thoughts drifted through me, always in wait for a moment of weakness. But Alissiya of the Green would not falter, and in time I began to grow into what I had pretended to be.

She showed me the path of the Green Hand, and it was there I found the peace that had eluded me. A way to survive without destruction, to fight without malice. This poor student will share such things as he can, with those trapped by the hell inside their minds.
