Hello, mind if I sit here?
I used to be a thief, you know. A great thief, yes, a skilled runner?
I do not trust my legs when it comes to horrible situations. I always end up using my wits, and I always make it through... well, eighty percent at a time.
I used to be quite a con, back then.
Problem after problem, wit after wit, I've been through it all, from stealing neopoints by convincing some tourist that I am a guide(which is not really true) to persuading others that I work for charity (yes, it was low, but it was hard back then.)
I lie, I've lied a lot, but there was something I never lied, history. Yep, quite the lamest thing you've heard but I don't lie when it comes to history. Neighbors in the slums used to plug their ears once I started yappin' about old wars, great ruins, ancient cultures, and all that jazz. I never shut my trap when it comes to that.
One day, I tried to steal from a very corrupt noble near an alleyway, I didn't know he was corrupt back then so it didn't matter to me, but then I saw what he was holding, a very old book. Not just any book, this book was something I've never seen, it seems to be very ancient... full of... history.
I've read, a lot of books, and I mean a lot! But I've never seen or read a book THAT historic. And this guy is just going to sell it off to some smuggler.
History is to never be kept away from the public. History is told, not sold. I tried to steal it. But as you can see from my left eye, it didn't end well...
I'm glad someone saved me, though. I regret not being able to remember his name, but this guy's a historian. He took care of me after that "incident". It's a shame I never got my left eye back, but thanks to him I became a historian.
I stopped stealing, I studied and worked hard because he convinced me. "If it's something you love, you just go for it!" he says. And he left me this hat, quite old and dusty, but this here hat has saved my hide multiple times.
So now here I am, with my office in Altador. With some small projects from time to time, it's not that much compared to how much I get during my thieving days, but it helps get me by and I love what I do. I search hidden ruins and the like and learn from them their history. I have a great assistant of an Ogrin, quite an earful when I don't do my work properly as her boss...
OH! I forgot to introduce myself, so sorry about that.....
My name is Cimarona.
