Nih was never had a looming presence, as far as size is concerned. In his youth, he barely weighed more than six stones; and, while he was taller than most, his gaunt appearance ensured he'd lead a lonely life. This, of course, caused him to be the brunt of many cruel jokes, contentious barbs, horrid stories, and rumors. The worst of which happened, unfortunately, around his twelfth autumn. His name day had occurred not even a fortnight before, and while the village as a whole celebrated the marking of his passage from child to youth, many of his peers saw him as nothing more than a target for their disdain and restlessness.

The village he grew up in, long since destroyed, rested in the foothills of the Ria Mountains. With the Hima desert to the south, land that was viable for planting and harvesting crops was nearly non-existent. Once a year, on the dawn of each spring season, the elders of the village would send a group of foragers to the city to the south for supplies, medicines, and dry foods. Each year they were charged with purchasing or trading for enough to last them until the next, but the last few years saw a decline in what their stone-wares could barter for and so the trips tended to bring more frustration than food.

There were rumors of a city to the north, deep within the mountains, but fear of the unknown kept the village elders from sending anyone north. Even when the village faced perils beyond surviving, the elders would still not send anyone north.

"If you ignore them, they will go away." His mother's words were always on his mind. She seemed to have a saying for everything:
"Wake up early, and you beat the heat."
"Quiet children lead lovely lives."
"Work hard now, for soon you'll be dead."

Rarely did they make any sense to Nih, but he listened nonetheless. His father was few on words growing up. The joke around the village was that the only words he muttered were the ones necessary to join himself to his wife. Of course, if you were able to get a few drinks into him, he would spring to life and tell you all about the long journey his family made from one side of the Ria mountains to the other. A boring story, Nih would muse quietly to himself any time it began.

His father had given him a new stone dagger as a gift for his twelfth name day. While not particularly useful, they had better weapons available, it was hand-crafted and had a scrimshaw handle of a fierce looking creature. When he asked his father what the creature was, he called it a Shark. Having never been to the coast, the creature was unfamiliar for Nih, but that made it all the more valuable to him.

Naturally, this meant the other youths would take notice and devise a plan to take it. A few days after his name day the older boys began trailing him, occasionally getting close enough to flick at his drooping ears. Foolishly, Nih pulled the gifted knife from his waistband and attempted to defend himself. This action only caused the boys to fall into a ruckus fit of laughter. Here, Nih, bone thin and barely able to withstand a gentle breeze clutched a knife between pale, shaking, hands. Pointing it from one boy to the next, they easily encircled him and began to strike out when he was facing another of the group.

That afternoon ended with Nih bloodied and the prized gift stolen.
