He hadn't started out wanting to be a soldier, but that's where he had ended up.

As a boy he'd followed his father around, wanting to be just like him - an archivist, working with knowledge. The books fascinated him, and he was good enough in school. Not the best, certainly not in math, but he enjoyed reading and geography. Books had been a passion of his and he had kept a journal ever since he was a boy.

His plans changed when the King of his small, island country, created a law requiring military of all able bodied youth. At sixteen, he was drafted into the armada and began his training. It was brutal for him. He had never been very active, preferring reading to playing sports. At times he thought the training would kill him. Waking early, having to train in combat and weapons, learning survival skills and strategy... And at the end of the day falling into his cot, exhausted.

Learning about war and survival through books came easier for him. He was dedicated - if this was what he had to do with his life, he wanted to at least be enough at it not to die in his first battle. He was better with guns than with swords and daggers. Killing from a distance appealed to him more, and his aim was excellent. Though he hated canons; that loud BOOMing sound they made was hell on his sensitive ears.

He didn't die in his first battle, but it did not go as well as he hoped. The enemy attacked unexpectedly - they were still in training, and were not supposed to be involved in battle for another month. Someone had screwed up, they were not warned of the enemy approaching their ship. And they had thought they were in safe waters, being so close to their island.

It was a scramble to get to their stations in time to engage the enemy with weapons. Since their ship was only meant for training, their canons did not have a long enough range to hit the enemy yet; instead they went for the long range guns. Their enemy did not appear to be well equipped either - only one of their canon shots hit the training ship, but that damage was easily fixed and it wasn't low enough for them to take on water.

Styxx was filled with adrenaline, thinking this was a chance to prove how far he had come in his training. But while they exchanged gun fire several trainees were hit, including Styxx, who did not get behind cover quick enough. He received a shot to his left shoulder, a minor injury. None were killed, though the shots hurt.

The enemy did not seem very intent on taking out their ship - after a few minutes of gunfire, their enemy turned around and left. Seeing this as a victory, they cheered. They did not give chase, not having enough weapons or speed to do so.

Later, they learned their 'enemy' had just been another training exercise, to see how well they would do. Suffice to say many of the trainees were angry for being tested with real guns and canons. Most of them did well enough though to be graduated out of training. Styxx's injury healed quickly, and had no lasting effects besides the scar.

~ ~ ~ ~

The war didn't end soon enough for him. It went on for years, and by that time he was too good at his job to be allowed to go back to a normal life. He had moved up in the ranks to become a senior tactician, planning how to achieve his Majesty's goals, and even after the battles were done there was still work for him to do. His King still had enemies that needed to be dealt with.
