      The people had gathered Lan there to give him an introduction to what he would be learning. Taking the lead was old man Hiroshi now wearing a large imperial looking robe. "Alright everyone please tell the boy what you will be teaching him'. Everyone in the room began shouting out their topic, and the topics stated were very varied, From Math; English; and Science to Cooking; Acting; and how to win in gambling matches. Hiroshi amazingly was able to record every single topic on a piece of paper; he then entered them into his computer and projected a spread chart with every mentioned topic onto the screen. "Now I know we were supposed to finish the scheduling last night' he said with a frown, "But thanks to a certain someone sitting in the middle of the front row, I was knocked out with a shovel and we weren't able to get anything one!' A man wearing a gardener's clothing looked down, embarrassed. "Now then, when will you be able to teach him?' The group members began shouting out their available hours, Hiroshi quickly inputting them onto the digital spreadsheet. After a few more minutes, everything was set, Lan would be learning from 6 different people every day for different periods of time. They had also decided to aside four hours a day just for Lan, the first with Lan staying in the library to read whatever he felt like (with the help of Librarian Donavan of course, a wiry old man with large spectacles), and the last three for free time. Once they had everything set, the first person scheduled to teach Lan that day brought him to his home and began to teach him his trade. Lan went through each of his lessons with ease, enjoying learning about the new subjects, and soaking in all the information like a sponge, an ability only a young a pure child possesses. That day he learned basic arithmetic, cooking, farming, music, reading and writing, and painting. Afterwards, he was sent to the library where he headed to the fairy tale section and began reading a menagerie of books, completely enchanted by the magical worlds filled with adventure. He even spent his 3 hours free time in there, loving every page of the wondrous tales. Once his last hour of free time was over, Donavan came to get him for supper at Anna's, where Byakko was already waiting for him.

      "So' Byakko said smiling "how was your first day?' "It was great' Lan said, his eyes sparkling "I learned so much fun stuff, and read lots of exciting stories'. "Well your day is about to get even better' Byakko said reaching into his jacket, "Behold!' he said pulling out a strange looking mushroom. "Wow' Lan said, then quickly realizing he didn't know what it was asked "What is it?'. "It is a rare nigrum truffle' Byakko said drooling "they are rare delicacies, and I found this baby while I was tackling a warthog this afternoon and I thought I'd share it with you'. "Aww' Lan said genuinely touched "Is it really that good?' "Yeah!' Byakko said loudly "they absolutely explode with flavor! But if you don't prepare them correctly they'll make you explode with'”-"he paused, and then looked up, noticing the frying pan inches from his head. "Right' Byakko said calmly "I guess I'll just leave it at that'. Anna nodded then took the mushroom from Byakko's hand, and headed to the kitchen to prepare the meal. Lan and Byakko were now waiting for the food to be prepared, and taking that time Lan decided to think about things. "I don't really remember what happened before I got here' he thought sadly "but things are going great so far, I have a great family now, I'm learning so much about the world, and I'm going to get stronger every day.' He turned towards Byakko and smiled, thinking about what amazing things he'll see and learn about in this town, "I'm going to grow up to be someone they can all be proud of, someone they won't be ashamed to call their grandson' Lan decided "I'm going to become just like one of the heroes in the stories I read, maybe even better.' "What is there something on my face?' Byakko said, noticing Lan's stare. "No' Lan said still smiling "I was just spacing out while thinking of the future'. Soon after, the food arrived. After they finished the initial coursesthe truffle dish was brought out and was truly delicious. Lan would remember that taste all his life, a taste that would always remind him of a new beginning. After the two of them had finished their meal, they headed back home. They then headed upstairs, where Byakko tucked Lan into bed, patted him on the head, and then gave reading a bed time story a shot. He chose an excellent story about an ancient journey, but completely failed when it came to voicing the characters properly and got many of the words wrong. After finishing it, he switched of the lights, went to his own bedroom, and quickly fell asleep, his snores audible even through the thick walls.

      Lan lay in bed, his mind buzzing with excitement, "I wonder what tomorrow will be like' he thought "There are so many things left to do, and so many things left to see', his active mind kept him awake for a period of time, but a boy as young as he was can't stay awake too long, and soon he was fast asleep. His dreams filled with visions of his exciting future, and the hope that tomorrow may bring.

      Lan picked up the little puppy that was chewing his pants and brought the little guy up to eye level. The pup yipped then licked Lan's nose. "You're my first animal friend' Lan said bringing the wolf pup into a hug "I think I'll give you a name'. Lan thought for a few moments and quickly formulated a list of names, he then ran down the list in his mind and picked out a good one. "I'll name you Ignis, it's the name of one of the fire spirits from a book grandma Anna read to me last night'. The puppy looked very much like all the others, but the hair on the sides of its body had flame like patterns, which allowed Lan to distinguish it from the rest. The little dog yipped apparently pleased with the new name. After that Lan spent the next hour playing with the rest of the puppies in the pack, during which many of his clothes were removed and chewed up, and once Byakko returned with the other adult wolves Lan was chasing all the puppies in his underwear, trying to get his clothes back. "How the heck did that happen?' Byakko said dropping the fresh kill he and the wolves had made. "I don't know' Lan responded desperately "We started playing on the ground and before I knew it they'd taken my clothes off' Lan pointed to the puppies, who were beginning to shred the clothes. "Well show some dominance!' Byakko said slamming his fist into his palm "You've got to show them who's boss!' "I've been asking them nicely, but they don't listen!' Lan said, beginning to panic. Byakko sighed, he made a mental note to teach Lan how to be more assertive later, but for now he had to get those clothes back, Anna would be furious if they were damaged too much. Byakko took a deep breath, and then let out an ear-splitting shout. The puppies were startled amddropped the clothes then turned to look in his direction. "Bring them here' Byakko said pointing at his feet. The puppies seeming to understand quickly picked up the clothes and brought them over Byakko's feet, not wanting to incite his wrath. Byakko and Lan then brought the clothes to a nearby stream and washed them. Once they were hung to dry they continued with training "Alright Lan' Byakko said "time for the technical part'. Byakko then began teaching Lan basic martial arts movements, which included punches; kicks; and foot techniques from a variety of different styles, Lan failed rather often, but was picking up them up much faster than a normal boy. What Byakko taught was very different from his own combat style, which was a formless brawling technique that he had developed many years ago. He did so because his fighting style relied heavily on his natural wildness, instincts, and overwhelming destructive power, so it may not have been the best style to teach Lan. "Every one's got one fighting style their best' he thought, while fixing one of Lan's kicking positions "I'll just see where the kid's talents lie, then go from there'. Byakko was using the most basic knowledge of the many martial arts he knew to try and figure out what style would be most suitable for Lan, after which he would research in it in depth by visiting some of his old constituents. However, at Lan's current age, it may take a year or two before he could discern what it was, so what was important right now was to teach him the basics and build up Lan's physical foundation so he would be ready when it was time. There was also unlocking his aura to consider. After thinking for a bit, Byakko decided not to unlock the boy's aura at present time for two reasons. One, the sudden influx of power may destabilize the boy and throw his mentality off balance, two he may not be ready to handle the aura yet and may hurt himself. "Once the boy kills his first Grimm, I'll unlock his aura' Byakko decided, "That may not be for a few years though', after finishing that thought, he returned his full attention to fixing Lan's bad posture.

      The basic training continued for another hour, after which it was then time for the two to return to the village. Lan put his clothes back on now that they were done drying then turned back to the tree cave "Bye guys' Lan said waving at the wolves, sweat dripping down his face "I'll come see you guys again later'. In response the wolves began howling in unison, a tribute to their new friend. Lan and Byakko then turned around and walked back along the path to the village.
      .
      .
      .
      When they arrived back at the village, almost the entire village was waiting in the square, many of the denizens eager to teach their new young ward. "Well' Byakko said, patting Lan on the back, "it's their turn now. See you in a few hours.' And with that Byakko dashed out of the village and back into the forest to get food for the village. After he left, the force field generator was quickly switched on, and Lan was quickly ushered into a large meeting hall where he took a seat in the middle of a circle of chairs. The meeting hall was an old building with a high ceiling and a screen and projector at one end of the hall. The building was made from painted wood, and generally had the look of an old style town hall.

      After walking for around 15 minutes they arrived at a clearing. "Alright boy' Byakko said folding his arms "We'll start with strengthening your body, then after you've built up a good foundation, I'll start teaching you fighting techniques.' "I'm ready' Lan shouted with a determined look on his face. "Alright then' Byakko said with a smile "we'll start with something simple since it's your first day training. Let's see, what should I have you do? hmmmm.' Byakko pondered for a few moments and then turned back to Lan "Give me 100 push-ups, 100 squats, and 100 sit-ups, after that we'll do some stretching exercises and a 10km run'. "Okay' Lan shouted, not realizing the magnitude of his training regime. He then dropped down and began his pushups, and after completing 30 he paused to rest. "upupupup' Byakko tutted "I never said you could rest, between reps, now get back too it before I wallop you!' A normal child would have begun complaining at this point, but Lan simply looked up, nodded, then continued. Byakko knew the child wasn't normal, in fact that's why he imposed a training regime that would normally be too much for a normal young boy, there was no way a normal child could have survived drifting through the sea and arriving on a beach shore without being eaten by the Grimm that roamed the waters. "Let's see how special this boy really is' Byakko thought. They then continued the training regime, Byakko whacking Lan with his tail every time Lan stopped to rest. After an hour or so, they finished the muscle training, and Lan began eating his lunch. "Alright Lan' Byakko said, stealing pieces of food from the lunch box, Lan protesting all the while "Since we're going to be running anyway, I may as well show you a few nice places, and introduce you to a few friends, you'll love them. After finishing the lunchbox, most of it winding up in Byakko's gut, the two of them got up, finished a few simple stretches, and then began running through the forest with Byakko leading and Lan struggling to keep up. They passed many beautiful places while they were running, crystal clear streams with animals drinking at the edge, breathtaking waterfalls falling into grottos beneath the earth, and wide open meadows bursting with wildflowers, just to name a few. Eventually they made their way to an enormous tree, far from the village, that must have been at least ten stories high. The area around the tree was mostly barren, with grass poking out here and there, there was a path leading up to a hole in the tree that looked like a cave opening, and strewn all over the area were bones of many different animals . Lan looked around nervously, wondering what his grandpa had brought him here to see. Suddenly a growling sound filled the area and glowing eyes lit up within the confines of the tree. "Grandpa must have brought me here to fight Grimm' Lan thought, clenching his fists "I won't betray his expectations.' Slowly, the beasts began to exit their cave, but instead of the Grimm Lan had been expecting, what emerged from the cave was a pack of large blood red wolves. Lan, put up his fists ready for a brawl "Calm down, kid' Byakko said, chuckling "they're friends'. With that Byakko brought his fingers to his lips and let out a loud whistle. The wolves stopped growling, looked in Byakko's direction, and then began wagging their tails apparently happy to see him. "Come on Lan' Byakko said confidently "Let's go meet the pack'. The two of them began walking in the direction of the wolves, and at the same time other wolves began coming out of the cave, the families of the larger wolves. The wolves began growling again once they caught sight of Lan, but Byakko slammed his hands together in a thundering clap and fixed them with a criticizing eye. "He's a friend boys and girls, treat him well'. The wolves, completely understanding Byakko, plodded over to Lan and began sniffing him, then after the whole group had gotten his sent, they began to lick him. "Hey!' Lan said laughing "that tickles.' "Nice pack don't you think' Byakko said with a smile " I became friends with them a few years back when I saved them from a bunch of Grimm, and now they treat me like the Alpha wolf, and since your my pup, they'll be treating you well.' Byakko whistled, and the older wolves dispatched themselves from the group to go meet him. Lan then felt a pull on the hem of his pants, and looked down to see a little pup chewing on his pants. "Pretty ironic that they like me so much huh kid' Byakko said patting one of the wolves on the head, "Why?' Lan responded, "You know' Byakko said "that thing with cats and dogs and how they...Oh never mind you'll get it eventually.' Byakko then started conversing with the older wolves that strangely seemed able to understand him. After a few moments Byakko nodded and turned back to Lan "Well, have fun playing kids', he said cracking his knuckles "Us adults are going to go on a little hunting trip to help the pack stock up on food rations.' Byakko and most of the older wolves then dashed into the forest, and quickly disappeared from sight.

      Ch 3 The Daily things
      Lan lay asleep on the bed, his dreams filled with magic and adventure. It was early morning now, the sun beams trickling through the open window, and birdsong filling the room. His consciousness was just beginning to surface at this point, slowly being drawn out by the promise of a new day. Something was wrong though; there was something amiss in the room right now, but his consciousness wasn't alert enough to tell what it was. The strange feeling slowly roused his from his slumber, enough to awaken some of his senses. He suddenly became aware of a burning smell, along with swishing sound. Opening his eyes, he turned his head and stared towards the center of the room and sitting there was Byakko, who was fanning a large fish over a portable wood fire stove. "Good morning sleepy head' Byakko said with a smile "bout time you woke up, it's almost breakfast time!' "Why are you roasting a fish in my room?' Lan inquired. "Because I felt like it' Byakko responded nonchalantly, "Hurry up and head to the bathroom and brush your teeth, we'll be having breakfast soon' he then paused and looked up at Lan curiously "You do remember how to brush teeth, right?'. After taking a few moments to get over the strangeness of the situation, Lan began thinking a little bit and realized he did know how, "Looks like the amnesia isn't too bad' Lan thought while stretching. He then hopped out of bed and ran down the hall to the nearest restroom.

      After finishing up in the bathroom (with a shower, toilet use, and then tooth brushing), Lan put on some new clothes Anna had left for him and then examined himself in the mirror, to see what he looked like, the amnesia had taken the memory of his appearance from his mind, and he hadn't encountered any reflective surfaces all day yesterday. He had messy black hair with blue highlights, black eyes, was quite lean, and would probably be considered the cute little boy type. He was currently wearing a loose fitting brown jacket with a white trim, a pair of black shorts, and was barefoot (Byakko was against shoes, because he believed that a boy should toughen up his feet by walking bare foot). After confirming his appearance he walked back to his bedroom to have breakfast. When he entered the room Byakko was sitting there waiting for him... holding the bones of the tuna fish. "Hey!' Lan said slightly miffed, "I thought you said we were going to have breakfast?' "Yep' Byakko said, munching down the fish bones "We'll be eating at Anna's, I was just having a little appetizer while I was waiting for you to get ready.' With that he got up, walked out of the room, and headed for the front door, Lan following close behind him. "Ah, what a perfect day!' said Byakko once they were outside, and it truly was. The morning air was crisp and clear, the sun was shining with only a few clouds were passing by here and there. They walked down from the house, and headed towards Anna's restaurant, greeting anybody they happened to come across. Once they arrived at Anna's home, a small brick building with a restaurant sign hanging from the door, they found Anna was already waiting for them. "About time you two arrived' she said smiling, "I've prepared a buffet for the two of you'. Inside, one of the tables was strewn with delicacies of all sorts. It included roasted meats, assorted eggs, a variety of different baked goods, and a menagerie of juices. Lan and Byakko plopped down on the table and began digging into the meal, Lan eating at the normal rate a young boy would and Byakko finishing multiple plates in a matter of seconds. While they were eating they began to discuss their schedule for today, and all the normal days in a year. "First thing in the morning' Byakko said through a mouthful of eggs "is training with me, we'll probably do around four hours worth of it, maybe more depending on the situation that day, and then you will go receive lessons from the other villagers. Who will be teaching you that day, and what exactly you'll be learning I have no idea. I'll be gone during that time to go hunting, someone's got to keep this village's meat supply properly stocked'. "Aren't you the one that eats the most of it' Anna said, chuckling to herself. "Hey, I'm just taking my honest share' Byakko said with mock hurt. After a few more minutes Lan and Byakko had finished their meal and were getting ready to leave. "Alright Lan' Byakko said stretching "We'll be training outside the village in the forest, before you woke up this morning I went out and cleared out all the Grimm within a 100 mile radius, so you should be pretty safe.' "What about the village?' Lan asked looking up "Don't you need to protect them?' "Don't worry' Byakko responded "they have one of the best dust force fields in existence, and if things become complicated they can fire one of the signal flares, which will send us running back to the village.' Satisfied with the response Lan got up and headed for the door. "Wait one moment Lan' Anna yelled, she pulled out a small lunch box and handed it to him. "Here's a little something in case you get hungry, our little warrior must keep up his strength if he is going to train well' she said, pinching his cheeks. Lan thanked her, then followed Byakko out of her home, then they headed out of the village, and walked into the forest.

      "Alright then' Hiroshi said clapping his hands together "back to business. What were we discussing again?' "I think we were going to discuss how to raise him' said a well-groomed man with a long mustache "The boy needs to be educated while he's living here, can't have him going out into the world without any knowledge.' "I could teach him engineering' Rowan yelled, "and I could teach him musical skills' shouted another old man, "and there's also that library' an old women yelled out "he could learn a lot there! After all, we've gathered books from all over the world there.' All of the people in the room had lost the ones close to them a long time ago, and never had the chance to raise a child, and when they began discussing what they would teach the boy, all of them felt a glimmer in their hearts, something they all believed they had lost a long time ago. This discussion continued for several minutes, and at the end they compiled a long list of what they were going to teach the boy, and at what times. "Alright, everyone' Anna said smiling "it's time to discuss a name for the child. How about...' "Hold it right there' Byakko, burst through the front door and stood there smiling "I knew you were going to start that without me. It's a good thing my instincts told me to come back here quickly.' All the people in the room turned to look at Byakko, who stood there dripping water and wearing nothing but a bath towel wrapped around his waist. "Oh, put some pants on' a women yelled from the crowd. Ignoring the comment Byakko sat down on a chair "first of all he has to train everyday with me, right boy?' he said pointing at the boy "Yeah!' the boy said with a big smile. "Hurry up and mark that down then' Byakko said waiving his hands. The changes were made to the schedule, although many grumbled about giving so much time with the boy to Byakko. Most of them, however, recognized the value of being able to protect yourself in a world full of Grimm though, so they acquiesced to Byakko's demands.

      "Alright then' Byakko said smiling "time to discuss the name'. Byakko opened his mouth, and then paused, staring at the clock. "Say, why don't we get the boy to bed? It's getting pretty late and I don't think he wants to be part of this crazy debate' "I'm not tired' the boy said jumping up "I want to be part of this too'. Anna smiled then picked the child up in her arms, him struggling and trying to be put back down. "Now, now young one, it's not good to sleep too late. Come on I'll take you to your room and read you a bedtime story.' She said with a smile, the boy stopped struggling "What kind of story?' he inquired. "A wonderful fairy tale full of charm' Anna answered, and with that brought him out of her home and walked up the road towards Byakko's home. As she held him in her arms, she felt warmth spreading in her breast, the same warmth that everyone else in the town was feeling; it was glow of familial love. Just a few hours ago almost all of them were just living every day in a daze, slowly waiting for the flame of their lives to die, only living on to be helpful to one another. But now they had a new reason to continue living, a hope in the future manifested in the beating heart of this young boy. They would raise him to be a strong, kind, and intelligent young man, one who could accomplish things they had only dreamed of.
      They had now arrived at Byakko's home at the center of the village, it was a worn down, yet cozy place that Byakko had slapped together when he had first arrived at the village, and had placed near the generator because "you'll have your two best lines of defense in one place'. It was two stories tall, had a kitchen, a family room, and a storage room on the first floor, and 2 bathrooms, and 2 bedrooms on the second floor. Anna walked inside, and then headed up the stairs to the unoccupied bedroom. Inside there was a simple bed, a nightstand, and a chair. Tucking the boy into the bed, Anna pulled a book from inside her dress and lit a candle. The boy stared at her expectantly, wondering what kind of fable would be spun here tonight. The story was a special one, about a man and his dragon on a mission to save the world. Anna recounted the tale with great vigor, personifying each event with the perfect voice; the boy listened with wide eyes, his mind filling with magic and adventure.
      After half an hour, they boy was starting to nod off. Anna closed the book, then gave the boy a quick peck on the cheek, "Sweet dreams dear.' She said with a smile. At that moment a booming sound came from downstairs as the door was opened, and within moments Byakko had entered the room. "We've finally decided on the name' he said with a smile "there was a huge argument, and I think someone got hit with shovel, but we got through it ok.' "Well then, please tell me the name you all decided on' Anna said her eyes gleaming. Byakko leaned in close and whispered into her ear; she smiled then turned back to the boy. "What's my name?' the boy said sleepily, feeling the last slivers of his consciousness slipping. "Lan' Anna said warmly "your name is Lan', and that was the last thing Lan remembered before falling into a deep sleep, his mind whisked away to the depths of dreamland.

      Byakko and the boy were currently eating in Anna's home, which was also one of the main restaurants in the village. Anna was a small old woman with gray hair wrapped into a bun, and was wearing a dark green dress and a messy apron; she was also one of the top chefs in village, and at one point in her life she had owned a 5-star restaurant. "Hey grandpa' the boy asked "Does that mean you don't have any friends outside this village?' Byakko burst out laughing, then patted the boy on the head "No, I've got plenty of friends still alive and kicking in this world, I'm just staying here right now to protect the village, after all I've got to do something in return for all the meals I've eaten.' He then motioned to the monumental pile of dishes piled next to him to emphasize his point. "It's not like I'm going to spend my life here though, I'll leave as soon as they don't need me anymore, and since I've got at least a hundred years left in me' Byakko said flexing his right arm "I might as well spend a little of my long life helping them out.' The boy had a feeling his grandpa's logic was quite unsound, but not having a counterargument, he decided to leave the conversation at that.

      "Right after we finish eating, we will begin some training' Byakko said through a mouthful of spinach and tuna stir-fry "My grandson isn't going to be called a weakling, so we're gonna buckle down hard. I'm going to make sure every inch of you becomes strong, from the tip of your head to the bottom of your foot and even up the shaft of your'”" with a clanging sound Anna hit Byakko over the head with a frying pan. "What vulgar language were you about to use in the presence of this young boy?' she said sternly. "Ow!' Byakko said rubbing the back of his bruised cranium "take it easy old lady. We're just discussing his training regime, and I really do mean to make sure he gets a big..' "Clang' the frying pan once again made contact with Byakko's skull. "Alright, Alright already' Byakko said holding up his hands to defend against the blows "I'll drop the subject'. With that Anna nodded and turned to the young boy "How is the food dear?' she said smiling "It's really good, thank you grandma' the boy said still digging in "Do you think you could teach me to make food like this?' "Why not?' Anna said chuckling, "but, we'll have to do it when you're not training with your grandpa here'. "Yeah' Byakko said after downing a large flagon of cider "You can learn from her at night after training, but to make up for the extra time' he said with a mischievous grin "I'll have to make the training a little tougher'. "Okay' the boy said pumping his fist in the air, not understanding the hidden meaning behind his Grandpa's voice, "let's do it'. Suddenly the front door burst open and many old people streamed into the room. "There really is a little boy here' someone said through the din, "Aw what a cute little one'. The boy looked around at all the old people that had streamed in; they were wearing many different types of clothing, most likely from many different cultures, and were all crowding around him asking him questions, many of which he couldn't answer. "Say boy', said an old man in an engineer's getup "What's your name, mine's Rowan'. "I don't know' the boy said with a shrug "Grandpa said he'd think of one when we got back to the village.' "You haven't given him a name yet?' an old women from the crowd yelled "What kind of Grandpa are you'. "Hey' Byakko said, starting his desert "I thought I'd give everyone a hand in picking the boy a name, seeing as we're all going to be raising him.' "Why are you pushing the responsibility on us?' a man from the crowd cried. Byakko turned to him with a raised eyebrow "You really trust me to properly bring up a kid all by myself?' the old man opened his mouth, closed it then thought for a second "You got a point there Byakko' he said submissively "Leave him with you and he'll probably be eaten within the week'. "I'm going to have lots of grandparents?' the boy said with a huge smile "Yahoo' he cried jumping up onto the table, but was quickly put back in his seat by Anna. "Well' said an old man wearing a yukata "We'd better give him a name first, how about...' he paused and sniffed the air "Byakko!' he yelled "When was the last time you took a shower!'. All the other people in the room began sniffing the air, many of them wrinkling their noses in disgust. "Why the heck are you saying I'm the source of the smell?' Byakko yelled. "Because you're the only one in the village who doesn't bathe every day, get to the bath houses and wash yourself off!' the man in the yukata yelled back. "That's cause I don't need to bath too often' Byakko said lifting his arm up and taking a big whiff of his pits "See, lemony fresh, what do you say to that Hiroshi?'. All the towns people in the room were staring at something next to Byakko, Hiroshi had his arms folded and had a look of smug satisfaction on his face. Byakko turned and saw that the plant next to his pits, that was strong and healthy just a few seconds ago, had now wilted from the stench. "Fine' Byakko grumbled getting up, "I'll go take the damn bath.' And with that he stomped out of the house, and headed up the road to one of the bathhouses.
