Terres des Légendes
Balasar’s new employer, an old gnome named Hoggle, was a entrepreneur/charlatan/adventurer with a knack for getting into trouble. It didn’t take long for him to prove his worth. Hoggle, of course, provided for him and got him some shiny gear (but only when he was able to acquire it at a bargain!) but that is not what made him the best boss Balasar ever had. For the first time someone respected him and treated him like a friend, and while technicly in his employ, Hoggle always refered to the dragonborn as his «Associate». He also thought him Elleslandais, the language of the Albonians, something the «Red Wing» would have never done, prefering seeing the dragonborns unable to communicate to anybody but them. He do not know how this contract that was to last one year turned into six. Hoggle sometimes rambled about all kinds of special clauses billing him for food and lodging, healing and other «penalties» but Balasar never paid any attention to this doubious accounting. All his life had been duty, obediance and combat. From this old gnome, he had learned what friendship was. Balasar considered Hoggle his friend, so this «precaution» of his to keep him around was really quite unneccesary, the dragonborn was quite satisfied to work for him for the time being.
The years have passed but Balasar never forgot about his brethren… Acting as bodyguard for Hoggle also served its purpose. It gave him the opportunity to learn about the world, it allowed him to get stronger… He didn’t know how and when but one day he would make things right. He would return to Wyrd and save his people from the nightmare…
