At birth, He was given the name Gold Lionheart. He was the child of a Noble couple, and he was rather fortunate (at least in his mind.) in that he wasn’t the first born, or even second. Having no higher aspirations he allows his elder siblings squabble over whatever worth they found in the family name. He was always more interested in finding what his special talent was, and many young do he tried his hoofs at everything he could imagine, even a brief stint where he tried, and failed to apply for a magic school. Unlike most children however, He never found his talent.
As such he has gotten into all kinds of mischief growing up. Well enough anyway that his family hired someone to look after him. He takes every opportunity he can to slip away from his “adviser”.
He was on one these such excursions when the invasion began.
