The cause of this separation has not been disclosed. How long he remained a vagabond is uncertain. Somewhere around 12 years ago he joined up with the "Golden Lions" a small mercenary group that at the time operated out of Talking Island who passed through Gludin recruiting. Along with several other thugs, down on their luck adventurers, and disgruntled sailors he spent the next 3 years in their small band's company. Shortly thereafter the young runaway, Allana, was recruited into the Golden Lions. After rescuing her from an attack by other members of the Lions they both fled from the band as fugitives. He has accompanied her ever since acting at times as a father, adviser, business partner, and informer though he typically downplays his roles referring to her as his superior.
Failure to Report Ale makes a brief appearance and assists Allana with preparing a letter bound for a Dwarven Guildsman.
