Religious Belief: Marventa & Aestheria Signature Item (s): His Journal [A Book and Quill], and a Bow. Background Rai wasn't the strongest of boys as a child, frail as he was, he spent his early years delving deep within books of the past, ancient history being his favorite. When he grew older and stronger, he found that he loved exploring just as much as reading, sometimes bringing back small trinkets and things.. It was clear to his parents that he had an active imagination as well, using song to cheer himself up or spur him on when he was scared, make no mistake, Rai enjoyed singing and had a good voice for it, juust not as much as he enjoyed reading and learning about the past. He found that he had a knack for using a bow, and brewing potions. Of course finding people to teach, rather than simply learning by sight, turned out to be the harder part. His parents wanted him to learn arts, painting and an instrument, but he was stubborn and finally they relented, finding him teachers in the art of brewing and archery. He was just above average in these two fields, though he still had much to learn. As he grew he put these skills to use when he went exploring further and further away from home, any animal he managed to kill, he made sure to save the hide, as an old hunter had showed him how to, and would offer these in respect to the gods he worshiped, thanking them each time he came back safe and sound. He started hearing about this strange new land, and a thought came to him one night, surely in this new land, there would be new history to learn, new cultures! He decided then and there to start saving, and did extra work wherever he could until finally he saved up enough to make a trip to that strange new land everyone was talking about.. Elpida.. He found himself excited, more so than he had when he found an old fang in the dirt as a boy..
