Bio:

Throughout history, the Baldrick family has been at the bottom of the class ladder, spending its days serving the rest of humanity in all its basic needs. Baldricks have served everyone, from mighty kings to the lowest of society that can still afford servants. This Baldrick began no different than any before. S. Baldrick began his career apprenticed to a dung shoveler named Percy in his village of Melchit, with no greater hopes than to one day be a dung shoveler in the great city of Deventer.

Then, one day something strange happened. As Baldrick was shoveling a particularly enormous pile of dung, he thought, “I wish this pile would move on its own.” And it did. The pile squelched its way over to the side of the street. Baldrick stared at it for awhile, wondering why it had never done that before. Puzzled, Baldrick began to walk home, when he suddenly got a craving for some vegetables. He went to the nearest vegetable stall and thought to himself, “I want that turnip in the top row, but I don’t have the money.” The merchant got a strange look on his face, and handed the turnip to Baldrick, refusing any money Baldrick offered him.

Baldrick realized, very slowly, that he had a gift, and told his family about it. They agreed he had a strange gift and it must be taken advantage of, for if the power in its rawest form could get free vegetables, who knows what it could do if it was trained? The family used its relatives, strewn across the lands, to get S. Baldrick a position as dogsbody to the butler, a Mr. Slackbladder, at the Mage’s Academy in Brightwater. While there, Mr. Slackbladder included Baldrick in all of his plans to increase his position at the Academy, but somehow never managed to rise in power.

Baldrick’s only real friend at the Academy was another servant named Bob. Bob and Baldrick got along famously, and Bob helped Baldrick get near the classrooms, where he pretended to work while listening to the lectures. Bob was the only one Baldrick his secret to, as it seemed right to Baldrick, like Bob was able to keep secrets well.

This situation carried on for sometime as Baldrick developed his powers, until one day as Baldrick was “sweeping” outside a classroom, Mr. Slackbladder caught him, and dragged him by his ear to the Archancellor’s office. The Archancellor, furious at Baldrick’s, cast him out of the Academy. Baldrick sullenly gathered his things, said goodbye to Mr. Slackbladder, who merely grunted and went back to his scheming, and began to leave the Academy for good. However, Bob met him at the gate with a wrapped package. He had stolen it from the armory, as it seemed right that Baldrick should have this particular crystal orb. Baldrick took it with a tear in his eye, as no one had given him something this nice since he was given his very own shovel with which to shovel dung. This orb was not particularly spherical, and when looked at closely, appeared to strongly resemble a large turnip. It felt right in Baldrick’s hand and he turned around and headed out into the world to search for that one thing all free men wish, but are unwilling to tell anyone else for fear they may steal it.
