Cyaron grew up in a little town at the base of the mountains with his three older brothers and one older sister. His father was a shopkeeper, a big, rough man who was more ready to kick than to comfort. Luckily, Cyaron's mother could cool even the fieriest temper with her rationality and spunk. All that changed, however, when Cyaron's mother suddenly disappeared when he was 9 years old. But it wasn't until 4 years later, at age 13, when he overhears a conversation between his oldest brother and his father saying they weren't his real family that, fed up with his life, Cyaron ran away… only to be abducted minutes after leaving the city limits.

During the many adventures that follow, Cyaron meets mages and rebels, Kingsmen and assassins, changes his name and teams up with a scruffy layabout bard (Jake) as he strives to find his mother and find out why the heck everyone's always trying to kidnap him.


Being the smallest one in the family, and far more sensitive to the neighbors' opinions, Ralph is a shy, stuttering boy with simple desires. Only the deep unrest of his mother's disappearance could cause him to do something as reckless as run away from home, and he only managed that after years of wishing and thinking and hesitating. As he matures, however, he goes through phases of fear, distrust, anger, and courage as he's forced to focus on simply surviving.


Dancing, fading into the background, and somehow always ending up in the middle of the worst situations ever.
