Camilla arrived in Sasserine relatively recently, a passenger on Amella’s trading expedition along with her sister Sophia; Camilla had previously been put to work by her father, a longshoreman under Pappy Bragg, as one of Sasserine’s few female cargo handlers. She jumped at the chance to escape the arduous work and sail off to Farshore, where it was rumored adventure and wealth were around every corner.
Farshore has so far not disappointed; soon after arriving she was walking on the beach when she spotted a small scorpion basking on a rock. She did not recognize it for the poisonous creature it was, and something seemed to draw her to it; she picked it up, and for some reason it did not sting her.
As she was looking the odd creature over, a shadow fell across them; a smiling, elderly Panitube man had appeared seemingly from nowhere. He seemed to know all about the scorpion, who he called Toltiltec, and told Camilla that Toltiltec had chosen her as its new master. As its old master, he told Camilla, he said it was his duty to help teach her what Toltiltec’s previous master had taught him – the secrets of Olman magic!
Well, that sounded a lot better than getting a job sorting gems from the mines all day, like her sister had. Adventure really was here, just like in the stories! As for the elderly Olman, who called himself Tatac, he has endured his eager, but impulsive and impetuous pupil, and has done his best to pass along his knowledge to the successor the spirits seem to have chosen. And as for Toltiltec, Tatac told her that he is not really a scorpion, but a magical spirit who prefers to take scorpion form.
Now, armed with Toltiltec’s magic and Tatac’s knowledge, Camilla is ready to see what adventures Farshore really has to offer.
