“Dragonslayer, eh? And yet, I can still out-drink him.”
Korin was the son of a local guardsman, and often stole away to the monastery to study (which he didn’t like) and train in combat (which he very much did like). Although their relationship was antagonistic at first, Korin’s good nature and natural ebullience soon made them fast friends. Although Ruff’s abilities now surpass Korin’s by a vast gulf, the two remain constant companions, with Korin serving as the anchor when Ruff falters and a cheerful counterpoint when Ruff falls into fits of despair.
