Thizzlegig grew up playing in a band with his parents. His mom played the lyre and his dad played the drums. They encouraged him from a very young age to play the flute to complement the band. Thizzlegig practiced hard every day and played at every local faire with his mom and dad. By the time he was a teen, he decided that there had to be more to this than just playing at the local faire. Were were his crowds of adoring fans? Where was his fame and fortune? He wanted it all! So, at 15, he decided to leave home and travel the world playing to audiences anywhere he could find them. He played a few small gigs solo, but his stories were all old country stories that just didn’t resonate with the crowds. Even in the face of failure, Thizzlegig didn’t give up. But, his name and reputation got around, and he couldn’t book any inns or faires. He was relegated to a lowly street performer. Down on his luck, and down to his last copper, he realized that this was it. He would play his heart out in one more performance and then head home to his mom and dad. He poured his heart and soul into this last performance, and played a spectacular show. After the performance, as he was packing his gear for the long trek home, a stranger dressed in fine courtly garb approached him and told him how impressed he was with Thizzlegig’s performance today. At this point, Thizzlegig broke down in tears and told the stranger his story and how he was just now packing up to head home. But, the stranger would have none of it. With talent like that, he couldn’t let Thizzlegig disappear into the unknown. He offered to put Thizlegig through Bard school. Thizzlegig couldn’t believe his ears. He didn’t even know this man, but his heart leapt for joy. Thizzlegig fell his knees and thanked the man profusely. The stranger lead Thizzlegig through town to the bard school and enrolled him. As Thizzlegig was being lead away to his new dorm room, he realized he didn’t even know the man’s name. He ran back to the front room only to find that the man had already gone. Thizzlegig asked everyone around if they knew who that man was, but no one knew. He left enough money to pay for all of Thizzlegig’s tuition and a small stipend, but he didn’t leave a name or an address or anything else behind. Thizzlegig made it his goal to someday find out who the man was and to pay him back for his generosity.
