One night, weeks after Luca's father left for the Wall of Men, Luca woke with the knowledge that his father had died. Filled with anger, and a lust for vengence, Luca prepaired himself for the journey and stole away into the night, while his mother slept. He walked for hours in the dark, but he quickly tired and he stopped to rest under an apple tree. Soon he was fast asleep and in his dream, Alrik the Sun God apeared to him. He told Luca that he was destined to become a great paladin for the Order, and by following his path, he would be allowed to avenge his father. Luca woke from his dream with an absolute sense of purpose and an inner calm. He picked up his pack and walked back to his house and slipped back into bed, unseen. He would only share his vision with his best friends, Kalec and Desmond.
