Birch's father of the same name headed a small herd directly outside of Prim'sylvia. The general unification of the lignea, and the species' peaceful ways, were a foreign concept to his family, who were all fiercely proud Arboruns. While his parents were skilled in battle and had the capacity to kill, however, they chose to maintain peace- something he never found himself agreeing with. When Birch was born, he was expected to take over the family duty of leading the herd, and his entire young life was spent preparing for the day when the throne would be his.

When outside invasion struck merely months after a drought that had left the herd weak, the herd was left decimated and they were forced to surrender. In a fit of rebellion, only days prior Birch had decided to leave the herd, but had failed to return to warn them of the invasion's approach. When the battle ended, Birch sneaked back to the border of what was once his herd-land and found his father in a state of disrepair, close to death.

His father's last words to Birch had been to return to the herd and save them- to take his rightful place as the leader of the herd and rebel against the invaders. Birch watched his father die in silence; watched as the look in the senior Birch's eyes had turned to desperation and despair as it became clear that his son had no intention of carrying out his final wish.

Birch remained at his father's side until the next morning when he at last ceased to breathe, and then ran from his herdland. He lived briefly in the area beyond the steppe before one day finally stepping forth into Helovia.
Born to Birch (s-d) and Ivy (m-a)
