I wanted to be a teacher, like mam.

Playing with my friends and learning new skills. We once went camping with just a blanket and a knife each, Father came to fetch us before moonrise though as it was midwinter and we would have frozen to death.
10. As a child, what kinds of personality traits did you display?
As a child I was very inquisitive, I wanted to learn how things worked and why. I was very confident and often spoke when I should have kept my mouth shut. I got into trouble a fair bit.
11. As a child, were you popular? Who were your friends and what were they like?
I had a close group of 7 friends, 3 boys and 4 girls. We had a lot of adventures, we did our studies and then would play games in the local woodland until moonrise.
12. When and with whom was your first kiss?
I have never been kissed.
13. Are you a virgin? If not, when and with whom did you lose your virginity?
I am still a virgin.
14. If you are a supernatural being, tell the story of how you became what you are
or first learned of your abilities. If you are just a normal human, describe any influences in your past that led you to do the things you do today.
Mam and Father taught me to respect others, especially if they had more power than me. Thus I do my best to do what I am told. My capture and sale when I was 12 left me very frightened and scared of strangers. M4 has helped me regain most of my confidence but the hardships of my training have left me more cautious and less adventurous and outspoken than I was as a child.
