Metiades Orbe was born in the village of Haksworth in Altene.
Since he was just a child his family had always tried to convince Met (how
they called him) to be a warrior. At the age of 15, his parents, members
of the Altenean aristocracy, were killed in a farmers riot. Fortunately,
he scaped from Haksworth, but he had nowhere to go. Metiades wandered begging
all trough Altene to survive until he met Maritia. She was a nice, peaceful
elder woman who had passed all her long life healing the most important
Altenean celebrities. Maritia adopted Met when he was 17 and took him everywhere
she went. Metiades was fascinated with her. He was amazed of how this small,
weak woman had the ability to cure even the most dangerous and mortal illnesses.
So one day his young pupil told Maritia: ěIíve discovered how I want to
spend the rest of my life. I want to be like you. I love what you do, Ma.
I´ve discovered I don´t care money as much as helping the others.
I want to heal.î
Maritia started to teach Metiades all the healing secrets
she knew. He was a great apprentice. Everything the old woman told him,
was perfectly learned by that brilliant brain. But unfortunately, his teacher
died before Met had reached a high level in the art of healing. Nothing
at all was making him to stay in Altene, so he went to Iridine to continue
his apprenticeship about Medicine.
His first weeks in Iridine were very difficult. He knew
nobody at all, and he had no idea about how Iridine was. So he spent those
first days in going over the streets of Iridine. But the few money he had
brought from Altene was running out, so he had to look for his patient.
He didnít know where to go, until someone told him the dumps were a good
place when looking for patients. There was where his job as a healer started.
Since then, lots of people have asked them to use his knowledgements in
Medicine with them.
