The Niam family belonged to a ninja clan known to outsiders as the Shadow Walkers. They used their prowess for infiltration, espionage and assassination for a price or just cause. The clan followed a strict code of obedience and absolute loyalty.

The Niam family had a mother, father, elder son, younger sister and Leeson who was yet unborn. The father and mother had decided that they no longer agreed with the direction that the clan was heading and attempted to flee in the night. They were hunted and the father and eldest brother stayed behind to fend off the hunters when the mother went into labor. The sister and mother found refuge and gave birth to Leeson. Once Leeson was deemed healthy the sister slayed the mother revealing that she was loyal to the clan and planned to return with the baby in hopes of a reward for her loyalty. The father returned without the eldest son and fought his daughter to keep his baby. He rescued Leeson but was unable to slay his own daughter whom escaped into the shadows. His father stumbled upon a hermit in the woods many miles from the clan’s village. They rested for two weeks there when another attack happened. The father fought back so that the hermit could escape with the child.

The hermit called the child Narl and raised him as his own in a manner of martial arts that stove to foster peace with all. Narl stayed with the hermit until he had a vision of the world breaking and awoke with a strong urgency to stop this vision from becoming reality. He said his good byes and traveled towards Greenest.
