Yuri’s story has two sides. The interesting thing is that Yuri only knows one of these sides.

Thus, here is Yuri’s story from his point of view:

Yuri was born to his mother, Verity; and his father, Viktor Stanislav, outside a small village near Threshold. Yuri’s mother was from Thyatis, and the people of the village cared none for the “invaders”, and little more for Viktor for taking one as his wife, casting himself as a traitor in their eyes. As one can imagine, Yuri was about as well liked as the rest of his family.

Yuri grew up a fairly self-sufficient child, learning how to survive in the wilderness from his fur-trapper and trader father. Yuri enjoyed being out in the wilds. He enjoyed being away from the people who scorned him, casting harsh glances and spitting at his feet. The wilderness made no judgment on him, it cared not where he was from or who his family was. All that mattered was survival, the age-old conflict of man-versus-nature. He also enjoyed the time with his father, who told stories of the heroes of old – slaying terrible monsters and waging war with the savage peoples of ancient Traladara – as they sat around a campfire late at night. It was these days in the wilds, hearing the old stories, that shaped Yuri’s future more readily than anything else.

Upon reaching the age of sixteen, Yuri finally approached his father about the shearing ceremony. A short time later, he had set out on his own, ready to find his place in the world. Yuri spent some time mingling among people from other villages and towns in the region surrounding Threshold, and he was pleased to find that not all communities were as stubborn as his about Thyatians (not that he considered himself one, but his appearance reveals his heritage).

About a year after his shearing, Yuri found himself in another small village on the other side of Threshold from his own. It was here that he first met Jera, a young girl, whose older brother Attis was of similar age to Yuri and was sheared at about the same time. And for his time there, she very much treated Yuri as her big brother, following him about everywhere he went.

Somewhere in the years that followed, Yuri made a friend in the Half-Orc Krarg. They traveled together in the lands surrounding Threshold until they found themselves back in the city at the Juggling Ogre Inn. It was here, some five years after Yuri’s shearing, that his adventures truly started…

There is one major difference between Yuri’s story from his point of view, and the real story:

The real story starts some time before Yuri’s birth when his mother and real father (Yes, Viktor is not his father!) came from Thyatis. Yuri’s father was a member of the Thyatian military, and when he was transferred to serve at an outpost in Karameikos. It was a short time after Yuri’s conception (but well before his birth) that the outpost fell and Yuri’s father died in the battle, while his mother escaped with her life and the life of her unborn child. It was in Threshold that she met Viktor, who took her in and helped her raise the child that they named Yuri. However, they never mentioned the fact that Viktor was not his father, nor even that Verity had come to Karameikos for any specific reason at all.
