You were born on the 10th day, in the month of Vrishika in the 481st year of the Blue Dragon. Vriskhika is the last month of the 24 month cycle of the year. It is named after the greatest of the male Red Dragons. This is a potent sign of the element of fire, one of the four primary elements and the stuff of the heart of Sol. This being the last month it also symbolizes death leading to rebirth and as a masculine month(10 masculine months, 10 feminine months, 4 months named for the first four Soundkeepers in the middle of the calendar), it denotes a protector (in the Dragon Cycle females are the teachers or uncoverers, while males are protectors or conquerors. First ten days protectors or teachers, last ten days conquerors or uncoverers, while the middle days are those who express both attributes).
You are the bastard son of Cees Boh (53), a wealthy cloth and furrier merchant out of the city of Karver Point (Vale Fief). Your mother is Jantine (38), the daughter of a local dairy farmer in the town of Jaspar. She was but a youth when she was seduced by Cees(pronounced keys) when he passed through some twenty years ago. When it was discovered she was pregnant, the local Druid (Logan) took it upon himself to go and visit Cees in Karver Point. The merchant kept to the old religion and was a man of honor, after his fashion. Thus moved by the Druid, he promptly took Jantine as a formal mistress, though she continued to live in Jaspar and would provide for her and his son, Cedric. The boy took after his mother in looks and build, being lean and sharp featured though his thick black hair was all his father and in contrast to her locks of gold.
You grew up in the artisan town of Jaspar, which lay in the shadow of the great Shepards Wood. You learned much of the forest from Logan who became a sort of father figure to you. Your own father saw you infrequently and though he never treated you unkindly, he was not of a warm disposition. As you grew and went for longer journeys into the forest with Logan you became more acquainted with the Wood Elves who lived there and you liked them very much. They were suspicious of humans, though far less so of Vale folk as opposed to Duchy men; which is difficult to explain seeing as you are both of Eersteman stock and virtually indistinguishable to any observer.
After reaching the age of twelve, a discussion between your father and Logan ended with you entering the local order of Druids, Order of the Heart Fire. This pleased you greatly as you had spoken to Logan for sometime about your desire to enter the order and all could plainly see your aptitude with both growing things and the wild animals of the forest. Upon entering the order you took the name Cedrus of the Heart Fire and thus began your career. You had to learn many things before actually starting to study the Talismans and learn the secrets of order. The ways of the forest, river, and road must be mastered before formal training could begin.
At the age of 16 you entered the first circle and began to learn the Talismans of the old religion. A whole new world opened up for you as you began to master this new power that had been around you all your days but now could reach for and call upon. You were shown the paths to the ancient Henges and traveled over the lands of the Vale Fiefs which are the domain of the Order of the Heart Fire. In time you became a trusted member and it was clear, even to you that the Order felt you might be destined for weighty matters. More than once you accompanied Logan, now the Arch-Druid of the order, on diplomatic envoys to the Ranger Lords, local Alans, and to the capital of the Elves, Shass Dy Chionn (Stand and be Ready). Now, having reached your 20th year, Logan calls a meeting with you in order to discuss an important matter and a mission of great import that will involve the Soundkeeper, the Ranger Lords, and the Druids.
