- "My father went missing while climbing Mount Shilla last winter. During the winter they couldn't send up a search party, and when they did launch one in the spring, half of them disappeared just like my father, and they never did find him. Ever since no one's gone up the mountain. Today, an Uncle of mine who works in the town hall was good enough to tell me about you. I won't be in the way at all. I'll do whatever you say. I'll even search for my father myself."

Biography[edit | edit source]
He's a boy that lives in the village of Mungs who goes to school like any other kid. One day a traveling warrior came to the village. He happened to come in contact with the boy and the boy was able to convince him to show him some techniques. The boy is now known to be quite the scrapper using a ruthless style of fighting that has kept him from ever loosing a fight. He has never injured another person enough for them to take notice and punish him though.
He hears rumors around about his father having gone up the mountain just as a thief to steal some riches of the Nobility, which has earned him a bad reputation in the village as some sort of criminal and vagrant. The boy wants to also clear his father's name even if he can't find him alive.
He hears word of D coming to the village and having decided to climb it. Knowing he is not adequately prepared or able to deal with the mountain, its environment, or its beasts that inhabit it, he elects to try his best to convince the hunter to allow him to accompany him. D refuses at first but the boy ends up following him up the as far as he can even with bad equipment and tarnished winter gear he has. This earns the kid getting critically sick.
The boy is found by Dust and the rest who straps the boy to his back for some of the way until Lilia elects to set up her Nobility Portable Refuge. There Dr. Vera treats the boy but he has become to weak to move. After some insults from Lilia about how his blood wouldn't allow him to help the boy D decides to get Left Hand to heal him. The symbiote does his job saying he only needs to rest a bit long and he will be as good as new.
Dr. Vera asks Dust to take the boy back down the mountain but this ends up putting him in danger as they are attacked by Snow Bugs. Dust lasts long enough for D to save the pair. They end up electing to keep going with the boy strapped to Dust. Dust does his duty protecting him.
While making their way up the mountain are attacked by Gilzen's servants the Mountain Folk. The initial assult is thwarted by D, and Lilia. The group are later attacked again, but in the middle of the assault Gilzen on the cover of darkness he manipulates in the brightness of the day time, and under a kind of darkness form that can't be perceived, turns them all in flight.
The group notice they all have the power to walk in the day light despite being Noble. In the mist of their astonishment, Lourié is grabbed temporarily by the Duke who has him drink some sort of concoction. This drink turns him into a living corpse instantly. The group is rattled beyond reproach at the magnitude and implications of these unique occurrences never recorded to have been able to do in the Nobility let alone Gilzen.
The boy bravely takes on the challenges of being captured and nearly killed several times after being returned to normal on the trip and even throws in his fight where he can saving Lilia from the duelist Zoltan by momentarily distracting him during their fight.
He bonds with the outlaw Crey Jansen on the trip and is there when the man is killed. The man comes to trust in him enough to give the boy his Placards in order to bury on top of the Moutain for him which was his hidden reason for climbing it in the first place.
It seems the boy fulfills this along with finding his lost father. He stays with his father Dr. Vera and Dust on top of the moutain, where the Doctor who has learned all the knowledge of Gilzen's medical ability, transmitted by who bit her, wishes to pass along the knowledge to the boy who will in turn teach it to those in the Capital for the betterment of mankind.
