sniperKardel Sharpeye was born deep in the mountains of Knollen where, since time immemorial, Keen Folk have endured by hunting the weird, cliff dwelling steeps talkers above their community, shooting them from a distance and gathering the remains where they fell. Sharpeye was among the best of these bizarre mountain devotees for whom projectile armaments are but another accessory, and to shoot is as natural as to touch.

On his day of calling, when he was to gain complete position in his village, Sharpeye took the very old test: a solitary shot from the valley level to strike a beast down from the cliffs. To fail to spot was to be dishonoured. With his whole village standing vigil, Sharpeye took his shot. A steep stalker fell; the crowd cheered. However, when the carcass was collected, the village was hushed, for the elders found that the bullet had penetrated its gleaming central eye then fallen to be clenched in the steep stalker’s mandibles. This portentous sign was the exact opening of a dark prophecy, predicting both greatness and banishment for the gunman who made such a shot. Sharpeye the Sniper was thus, by his own skill, condemned to make his way distant from his people-and unwanted until he has fulfilled the rest of the prophecy by accomplishing legendary status on a field of battle.
