Nothing else will be done with this story, it has evolved into Amathis. Altruis is an unusual dwarf who spends too much time in the library for his father's liking, who just happens to be the king. Altruis is an outcast who doesn't resemble the rest of the royal family in both his appearance and his demeanor. He is supposed to act like a member of the royal family, but he is much happier to read the old legends and tales of past warriors and heroes, rather than learn to become king or some other dignitary. His life changes dramatically when an old friend returns to Altruis' life, and when mysterious events start to affect Altruis' life.
