Alortan: Even less English than Tal is French ( but he tries harder. ) Backstory on him is that he's from a family at the low end of high society, trying to increase his family's prestige by working for the most powerful family in the country. The Ukariels torment them in their genteel Veran way by making him do all the jobs that require going to other planets and dealing with ( shudder and fear ) non-Verans. But he has an ascot, so life isn't all
So Tal's from the continent of Near North East, country of Wachiru. I'll tell you the city if he ever admits the name of it. ( Not, however, the same city as Alortan and his employers. ) Linkback to the main page.
