The memories of his youth consist only of fleeting images of a woman with tear-filled eyes setting him down on a log in the forest. Then came the night, terror and darkness. Sounds alien and frightening to him. Then the comfort of a furry animal, young, like him. The tase of hot blood or bitter greens in his mouth as he took what he needed to live from the forest. Then the shiny golden hair of a woman clad in skins lifting him and then happiness.
He would come to know the woman has his ‘mother’, and she was the Matriarch of the Winters Grasp Moot, Pah’eya. She would go on to tell him that the forest itself guided her to him that day, and that his connection to the land was powerful. Barely able to walk but surviving for what she could only guess to be weeks and with no less that a wolf pup at his side. She named him Manasael, a name she said the elder tree had asked she give him. Together with the Tribe of the Elder Tree and then later the Winter Grasp Moot itself, he would grow to a fine hunter, a talented scout as well as a gifted shapeshifter.
At the age of 16 while he was hunting he ran into an orc band. He managed to use cunning to navigate most of the beasts into various traps or natural obstacles. Dropping a hive of wasps into their midst at a well chosen spot drove 2 over a cliff. He baited a couple others to chase him into a large bears den. Another couldn’t be saved in time when a loop snare twined around its neck. His luck unfortunately ran out and the boy was captured. They set to torturing him before they unceremoniously stabbed him in the chest and left him for dead. Pah’eya found him barely alive. Healers would go on to say that the blade had nicked his heart and that he would most likely never survive the night. Pah’eya had him brought before the Elder Tree to ask that he be saved. The spirit of the tree came forth, a pretty young woman with black hair and eyes as green as a spring forests’ foliage. She wept tears of amber into her hands and placed them over his chest. His eyes flashed open in white hot pain, and he remembers thinking he’d seen that woman before as he lost consciousness.
His heart of amber is clearly visible at all times. He views it as a hard won badge of honor
