Bio:

Fish Mannsonürin’s earliest memory is of the waterside. His name was not Fish back then, and nobody he had spoken to could tell him what it was. Not that Fish had asked. He had thought about asking, more than a few times, but he always decided he would rather leave it alone. Better not to stir the grave. Still, Fish remembered his father who was a fine fisherman. His mother had died during his birth, but his father had never held anything against him. Fish’s last memory of his father was on the day of his death. Before Fish’s father had set out his boat into the grey morning drizzle, Fish had asked him if he could buy a pastry on the way back into Tillious. His father then tussled his son’s hair, clapped his cheek and said “Fish, you are going to have to die anyway.” He laughed and Fish giggled while he ran back into town. It is still hard for Fish to relate why that was one of the most comforting thoughts he had ever known.

After he was orphaned, Fish wandered lost. As vague as that is, the memory of childhood has been difficult for Fish to pull back. Fish remembers the streets of Tillious and the tall pine’s of the southern forest as one rolled ball of sensation. His father had told him to always follow the river, that’s what he must have done. Perhaps it was because they found him alive and alone in the forest, despite his age, that the elves had said Fish was a child of consequence.

The elven retreat was a small place, but the hunter’s community was filled with kind folk. It was very easy for a distraught child to find comfort quickly there. It alarmed the elves how briefly human children grieve when provided with their basic wants and needs. On several occasions they questioned whether they should return him, but each party they sent could find nobody willing to take the child, and so they took the extraordinary step of adopting him. When they had found him, restricted by his age and trauma as he was, he could say only one word: Fish. Therefore, Fish became the child’s name. Mannsonürin simply indicated his race,as if he had any need of being identified as different.

There was nothing really for Fish to complain about, he was much better off even than he had been in amongst his adopted kin. The truth was, however, that he was human and they were not. He learnt and grew at a rate that was so rapid it was alarming for the elves to witness. The rituals and expectations placed upon a child were very different, and, no matter what they tried, the elves felt they could not raise the boy right.

The elf sages saw in Fish’s mortality something unique. His quickened development related the brevity and intensity of human life better than any of their books ever could have. The elves understood the search for meaning in life from a human perspective for the first time and vowed to make certain of Fish’s impact upon Bas-Tyra; he would find worth in his brief existence. They understood that the mortal drive for endeavour was required for the greatest acts of heroism. So it was that they would forge the sword Götterdämmerung and give Fish his destiny and purpose.

At the age of thirteen, Fish was told of the sword and his destiny, though not that it was crafted for him. He was told that they had foreseen his heroism, and that grave evil would be settled upon the world if he did not rise to meet it. He has trained all of his life to meet that fate.
