this is the first chapter of robbins story so there will be more and more stories on other characters as well.

I, Robin Faden was born to a demi-human and a fairy spy from Erathial. I was born in a small town in Arathena. When I was three, I ran with my big sister raven north as our mother cried in pain. I remember the faint screams in the distance. They ran till they met an orc woman. She led us to a house were an orc man came out was slightly frightened, he said he was Derrick. We were very happy for 12 years. I was 15 when they came it was a small army led by lord Troyard I watched as they killed my new father. As I cried, I was pulled away by a soldier. I was put on a cart as I cried I looked behind me to see my house burn to the ground I called out for my sister but I heard no response as the carriage moved south I saw a soldier run out of the home engulfed in flames as I watched in terror. A soldier said, “everything is going to be alright now, you won't be controlled by those monsters anymore.” I was brought to a castle; it had been about a week since those horrors, a soldier around my age said, “hello I’m Aleyn what is your name?”. They seemed nice and continued to say “I was trained to become a soldier at a young age because my family needed money, it’s been nice though I have a place to sleep and get more than enough food. How about you? I saw you come on that cart from orc territory what was a kid like you doing out there where you kidnaped?” I snap out of my trance and frantically say “hello my name is Robin I was living with my sister raven and my father, well not my birth father.. cause he was an orc but-” Aleyn cuts me off and says, “Wait you were being taken care of by an Orc?” I respond with “Yes his name was Derrick he was very nice to us and he treated us as if we were his children he naturally became basically our father we were getting ready to celebrate his birthday when…” my smile turns to a frown. “wh-when they came and” I break into tears as remember the events he sighed and said to me. “Derrick was just manipulating you and trying to brainwash you guys do you Understand?” I mumbled “yes” as he patted me on the back comforting me “don’t worry everything will be alright now come with me and join lord Troyard’s military so I can train you and look after you. I'll talk to lord troyard to see what I can do” he leads me to the courtyard and tells me to wait. A few minutes pass, and he comes out with a face of glee and says “I ran it by our Lord and he was okay with me training you and us sharing a room!” “Okay,” I mumble. “Just come with me, and I'll show you around,” he says as he grabs my hand and shows me around. I don't know why but I trust him. A year passes before I know it. Aleyn trained me and taught me everything about a sword and fighting. We hunted a little and told me about his life. The place we slept was nice too there was only one bed, but it was pretty big, so it wasn't that big of a deal. At first, I said I would take the floor, but he insisted that we share because the bed could fit two and he didn’t mind. We had a few thieves every once in a while. There was one time when I was walking around the courtyard at night when I heard something behind me I turned around, but I just saw a dark hooded figure before my vision went completely black and started to fall in the cold breeze. When I began to come to I felt rough fabric rubbing against my skin like sandpaper as it began to itch I tried to move but found a rope around wrists and ankles. It was tighter than an anaconda trying to choke their prey. The piece of cloth in my mouth was wet with saliva preventing me from screaming. Someone pulls me out of the sack I was hidden in as they grabbed my hair. “Ih urts, hese sawp,” someone with a deep burly voice remarks “Oh I haven’t done nothing yet mutt” I hear yelling of guards when I recognize a voice asking where Robin was. It was Aleyn he came for me. “shoot“ the man says “they're going to find me, well good thing I have insurance.” He then grabs me hoisting me onto my feet as he puts a blade to my neck. “No funny business, got it mutt or else” I nod a little, “good.” He opens the door to be immediately surrounded by guards I quickly spot Aleyn he looks relieved to see me alive and immediately looks at the man with a piercing glare. “Put him down, and we will let you leave.” Aleyn warns

“Give me 3 pounds of gold, and I'll give him to you at the border unscathed” the man sneered. “Then I have no choice “ Aleyn cautioned as he unsheathed his sword. “You’re going to regret this” the man rebuked as he readied the blade in his other hand. Aleyn ran towards me with his sword. As the man slashed aleyn dogged. As Aleyn tried to wound him, he quickly pulled me in front of him as the blade cut through my skin as if it were paper barely missing my eye. The man dropped me on the ground as I look at aleyn as his face transforms with shock. As the man impales aleyn with his blade, a wave of animosity washes over me flames incinerate my restraints as I stand and walk over to the man with my face filled with blood lust. As wings emerge from my back as a trail of fire creeps behind me. I lift my hand aiming it at his head a bolt of fire bursts from my hand engulfing him in the flames I sit next to aleyn and pick up his head “you’re okay now” I consoled. I smile and kiss him as I draw a blank.
