Having no relations who are willing or suited to care for my orphaned self, it has fallen out that I shall become the ward of distant relations Rittmaster and Mrs. Peterman (nee Nadir), who are in the process of settling in the Oregon Territories. I arrived from the East only to find the Rittmaster away on campaign (fighting the Indians?), and Aunt Nabila away on a dangerous Expedition to the Core of the Earth! Luckily, I can shift for myself.
I joined the Navy.
