Backstory Shin grew up on an island north northwest of the Great Sea owned by a family of mages that claim to be surviving lower nobility of the Old Hyrule. He and his girlfriend Katsumi Chan were raised on legends of heroes from the old world and they had long dreamed of setting out to sea together to live out adventures of their own. Shin’s father had long been a detractor of the children’s dreams, dismissing the stories has half truths that confidently ignore the harsh suffering suffered by people who live those lives. It’s only with his final breath does the old man have a change of heart giving his now adult son his blessing to set out into the world at large.
