Write a paragraph or so about your character so we can get a gist of him/her. Include anything of note in relevance to the character:
Cooking beside his mum and half sister, he often cleaned after the two. Billie worked as a servant for one of the more well to do families. And Hannelore rarely acted her age. They never stayed in a single place for long. It could’ve been because the wind spoke to Billie or more likely –Hannelore did something scandalous. Regardless, they left in the night.
His relatively peaceful life was interrupted with the war. Each village was required to come up with a certain amount of men. Clover’s village, at the time, had ten families –none of them too eager to give up their boys. As such, Clove took to arms at thirteen against his mother’s protests and his half-sister’s pleas.
He never looked back. Once the war came to an abrupt and unsatisfactory truce, the boy began to travel. Clover acquired a few skills here and there. It wasn't uncommon for him to rough it out in the woods. Until someone in a nearby town took him in and he began working as a farmhand or sold/bartered his wild game.
His mother refuses to forgive him for leaving, but Hannelore sends letters his way once he settles down in a location. Now older and with a few children of her own, Hannelore has taken up residence in England with a stout merchant.
