Sniper Background Story
Sniper was born to the valley folk, deep in the mountains of Knollen. Since time immemorial, the valley folk have survived by hunting the strange, cliff-dwelling steepstalkers above their village–killing them from a distance and collecting their carcasses where they fell. Sniper was among the best of these shootists from the valley, these strange folk for whom projectile weapons are but another appendage, and to shoot is as natural as to touch. On his day of summoning, when he was to gain full standing in his village, Sniper took the ancient test: a single shot from the valley floor to strike a beast down from the cliffs. To miss was was to be dishonored. With his entire village standing vigil, Sniper took his shot. A steepstalker fell; the crowd cheered. But when the carcass was collected, the village grew silent, for the elders found that its central eye had been shot out. This was an ominous sign, the answer to a dark prophesy, and Sniper was sent into exile, condemned to make his way apart from his people. Only when he proves his greatness, can he return to his village home.
