  • Sniper

    Sharpeye was born to the valley folk, deep in the mountains of Knollen. Since time immemorial, the valley folk have survived by hunting the strange, cliff-dwelling steepstalkers above their village—killing them from a distance and collecting their carcasses where they fell. Sharpeye was among the best of these shootists from the valley, these strange folk for whom projectile weapons are but another appendage, and to shoot is as natural as to touch. On his day of summoning, when he was to gain full standing in his village, Sharpeye took the ancient test: a single shot from the valley floor to strike a beast down from the cliffs. To miss was to be less than a man. With his entire village standing vigil, Sharpeye took his shot. A steepstalker fell; the crowd cheered. But when the carcass was collected, the village grew silent, for the elders found that its central eye had been shot out. This was an ominous sign, the answer to a dark prophesy, and Sharpeye was sent into exile with a cloud hanging over his head, condemned to make his way apart from his people. Only when he proves his greatness, can he return to his village home.

    Can we keep his first name "Kardel" too? Story is good, but what is "less than a man"? Some people always fail tests like that, feels a bit drastic.

      Love that explanation. And since "to shoot is as natural as to touch" it makes sense to have such a trial for young men. Considering how old Sniper is in the game, it gives the whole thing a sad side as well. How many years has he been trying to achieve greatness?

        I'd rather see more positive aproach he was destined for greatness due to his awsome shot orso.... or you should explain why it was an bad sign....
