Legends of the Dreaming Sea
Kyros was born in Arqad to a family who have lived there for centuries and were a wealthy powerful family. This all changed when Ys invaded when much of that was taken away. Like many of the peoples of Arqad resorted to raiding the local ruins for items which could be sold to make a living. He found that he had a knack for this and soon became interested in finding out more about the items that he found. This eventually turned into him becoming an expert in the local area and ended up teaching in the local school.
Kyros exalted when he was out on a savaging run to some ruins. In one of the rooms he found an bow made of oricalcum. Thinking that he had hit the jackpot he picked it up, but it activated a Gollum which had been set to guard it. As he dodged out of the way, he realised that with his knowledge he knew a weak spot and how to deactivate it. With this revelation he felt a massive amount of power well up inside his, and drawing back on the bow he conjured an arrow out of thin area, fired, and rebounding it off the walls it slipped between some armoured sheets into the innards of the Gollum which causes it to stop.
