I first met Daemon when we both attended the Scholar's Guild in Helldon. we both met through the regular classes in Alchemy we were assigned, He however was quite simply a shy and reserved boy as barely 3yrs before his close family was hunted for sport by the Elven Lords.
I tried my best to break his protective wall to befriend him and i did somewhat, although even through his later life when he joined the King's Council he remained the same quiet boy. Back when we were in the Guild Daemon took a fancy to the more theoretical side of Alchemic Science whereas i chose Book Lore instead. aside from the different subjects and aims me and Daemon remained close contact and met as much as we could. We spent many hours in the library discussing and reviewing each others work as Daemon being quiet was not fond of befriending others.
For the many years we were in the Scholar's Guild once we left we were immediately shipped off to the various Alchemy Sites across the Land, sadly me and Daemon were split as i was sent to Goldenhold Alchemy Institute and Daemon was sent to Emmalas Alchemy Institute. For over 10yrs we did not see one another and from what my ears hear is that Daemon became the discoverer of the Cure to Vomite and the creator of the "Alchemy: Writings of the Alchemist" which of course have been used and read through the World to date.
Daemon refused to comment on many occasions on what motivated him to find the cure other than he "felt the time was right" comment he made in an issue of the Golden Post. He was always a mystic Man even as a boy. despite my attempts Daemon did not speak of his Family or Life before the Guild, despite being a Ricard there is no official record of his birth nor his relation to the Family, some may theorize he merely took the name but my personal theory is that he is a Bastard only he refused to accept his illegitimacy and using his Father or Mother's name.
