Nosani, that was the youth’s clan name born weak and frail it was rather miraculous that he survived. It was a short number of months before the plains tribe shaman noticed odd activity within the young baby’s eye.
As if they were following something, it did not take long the shaman to attribute it to a blessing of the ruhk. The ability to see the will of the spirits that moved through the world. As such it would only lend to youngster being trained as a shaman of the Pelatani to follow in the shaman’s path after they passed on. Such trails would be rigorous once the child came of age

As he aged Nosani continued to be a frail youngster much smaller and lighter than his fellows in the tribe. Though it was not a shame for his parent’s after all, their child was blessed by god and would rise to be a shaman within a clan.
In a sense, it was a great blessing and rather very few divine interventions could be greater. He would gain experience and knowledge as all youngsters did of the normal activities of the tribe before moving into the training of a shaman and connecting to the spirits… the ruhk, able to guide the clan into its future.

This life would not come to be around the young Nosani’s 8th cycle. While out on a hunting trip alongside a small number of the tribe’s menfolk and a few other youngsters, they would be set upon by brigands. These robbers sought to capture or kill them if necessary.
With overwhelming odds, they had not a hope of coming out victorious at all. A number died at their hands and the rest captured.
That morning before was the last time Nosani saw his clan during his youth, the last reminded the tattoo that clan adorned him with across his right arm.

The youth would be kept within the slave pens. Most died their and rather he was fortunate that the Slave Masters had the ability to detect value in their slaves. Money gave them assets and magicians or other experts of their own.
Detecting the beginnings of a magician within a captive, it was a great reward. It easily changed the value of a young slave significantly. While a female would be more optimal, a young male still easy to mold would be easy. Even better he appeared fairly effeminate with his long hair and fair face, they might even be able to make more profit.

The slavers set about their deals and plans. Obviously, the young Nosani was oblivious to on goings of his fellows keep segregated. However, he was treated significantly better than previously.
It would be at least one season before he would be brought before a man of Kou, his hair left down and brushed neatly by the slavers as they showed the thin and frail youngster off to the buyer.
While they had kept his skin unblemished for the most part, they had at least beat silence into the youth. It was not long before it seemed the man seemed happy with evidence provided of Nosani’s potential and proclaimed, “I will buy her”

It was of course to the man’s disappointment that they spent their clan’s money on a boy rather than the intended female target. Though he had no response to the ironclad contract of the slavers. They had not lied just played on the string of their buyer.
Nosani suffered under frustration and even further received castration after all the clan’s intended plans could not allow a strong willed male at the minimum a Eunuch would be needed they could not afford to waste their haung on such an error, they had to break this new slave in by any means… they needed a loyal pet.

It had been several years, at least Mal could roughly tell how long he had been in his servitude. He had been able tell roughly enough through the simple change of seasons. From spring to summer, from summer to autumn and final into winter and the return of spring. However, slowly and surely such reason just became the slow tracking of time. The will for any freedom broken and decayed by time.

He after all was a Eunuch of the Wan-xi Clan, a small clan of the nation of Kou. He was a simple servant slave for life. His mistress to serve a young lady of the family by the name of Sai Yin.

His early internment here had been brutal and rough but slowly any will of rebellion had been replaced by the wish of servitude. Maybe it could be linked to Mal’s becoming as a Eunuch and the name of Mal that they had granted upon him at that time.
Turning a man or a young male into a Eunuch reduced their will in at least a few ways. Though the people couldn’t really understand how it worked. It proved effective at denying a male any power as well as giving the family security of the chastity of young lady that he would serve.

Mal’s value to the family was that he was a slave that they had purchased with latent magical potential. This was shown by his ability to produce a borg, the minimum to guarantee access to the rising city of mages that went by the name of Magnostadt.
Mal would be the young madam’s servant there to assist her with her needs and guarantee the family security in a place that they could not go. It was no wonder in a sense why they were so brutal and forceful in looking for certainty that their young slave would not be hostile.

While his youth had been torturous and the fears of the implement of torture had been ingrained into Mal’s mind, It placed him under their control after all.
He had at least been granted the knowledge of writing and reading. Which could be said to be more significant after all most slaves would be doomed to die in the mines, often starving or diseased.
To the Wan-xi, Mal was their investment and having that haung be thrown away would be incredibly costly. They had after all intentionally focused Mal to develop into a very weak and powerless magician of purple.

The reason’s behind this was that it would be incredibly useful to them even after the madam had completed several the Kodor’s. Once Sai Yin returned as an experienced mage she would become an incredibly useful asset not just in battle but in terms of marriage material.
It would become a great political weapon for the family among the minor clans and even if they had to marry her away to a more powerful family. It would raise their status within Kou and they would still at the end of it have a loyal servant magician of purple that would have hopefully at least slightly improved.

A mage that could at least fit into general servant society, trained in action and both expectation. Able to blend into that environment would suit the elders greatly. At a feast of risk of poison, your server could even guarantee that you didn’t even have to trust your food tester.
After all this was why they had outfitted him with a wand rather than a stave, a wand was more concealable beneath a servants’ robes and would allow them to act more discreetly.
Though they could have wished for him to become effective in combat or at least assassination, It was not worth the risk of having Sai Yin instructed in pushing Mal into those arts after all it carried risk… significant risk.

It was a shame for the family to see them go after all several the family’s men and boys had enjoyed the opportunities to test techniques on the mage servant. After all they could use the excuse that the young servant could always cleanse and heal his own wounds as long as they didn’t go to deep.
Though they treaded carefully, they could allow strikes to go beyond regions of the body that would be left uncovered by clothing, it could be seen as unsightly to their guests to see a disfigured servant at their feet after all and the Wan-xi had no intention of making fools of themselves.

The time slowly came for their long trip to the city of Magnostaht. The middle yeared teenager that was Mal would accompany Sai Yin whom was of similar age in a carriage with a small retinue of guards and a single female servant to travel with a trade caravan heading in the direction of Magnostaht.
The family had no intention of hiring mercenaries after all that carried its own security risk and it was after all, far safer to pay a merchant’s caravan to allow another armed force and a carriage travel with them. After all, they provided for themselves and gave them added security alongside their own bodyguards against brigands and beasts.

Mal sat within the carriage opposite his mistress, he was them to attend to her every need along her trip. She was an incredibly prideful being after all most of the nobility were as such. Power brought such body language, she was a slightly overweight individual many due to the family focusing on overfeeding her to help deal with her frailty as a young child. It was one of the reasons she could be argued to be a glutton.
She had a stunning black and silky hair after all she would likely have been a rather beautiful individual if she had not been so engrossed on food by her clan.

Mal sat alert and awake, he had over the years came to be able to tell the whims of his mistress by just her simple body language. Owing the close involvement that he had with her, it saved him from any beating for the most part other than those to ensure her own position of power above him.
He did not need to make any observations of the lady servant that also accompanied them while he had little contact with her and many of the other servants, she went by the name of Tai-rei. She had a stronger position that him due to her not being a slave but rather a member of a minor branch family of the main clan.

She would attend to the mistress’s more finer needs where a male servant really should not be assisting even if they were a Eunuch. As well as being the main attender to lady Sai Yin’s pet hawk. That joined them on this trip and would be the only other asset of the clan other than Mal to join her within the city.
It was hoped by the clan that the bird would be used as messenger bird to allow messages to be sent back by Sai Yin to the clan and for them to be able to respond back to the young lady.

They would travel for several hours a day, mainly covering from the time of just after dawn to dusk. During this time Mal would see to the reading of texts that the family had provided to for the mistress’s he read them after all to allow her not to expend the energy of her eye’s considering the text, by her own words
“A good eunuch”
serving his mistress so willingly.
Or aiding with her meditation or providing her with her food that made up her numerous meals of the day, sometimes even being required to feed her himself. Which in truth was rather uncommon but showed her nature of sloth.

The carriage rocked and bounced over the rough roads. It was not unexpected with such rough terrain when a cry came from the mistress after a loud bang as her left ankle struck the back of her carriage seat. The mistress showed obvious frustration allowing it to blow out on her Eunuch.
She proclaimed aloud
“Fix it EUNUCH!!”
as she sobbed with her pain. A pain that Mal personally would believe was something rather feeble and just an extremely minor irritation than anything to sob about but after all he was trained to deal with her every desire, he lived to serve.

Mal immediately moved off his seat opposite her and to his knees to treat the injury. Removing his wand from his inner robe as he prepared to use the limited and weak purple magic that he possessed. However, that was quickly prevented as the mistress using her left foot kicked the wand from his hand.
She proclaimed
“Not with your magic… you will lick it better and prostrate yourself before me… like a good Eunuch”.
As she continued her sobbing and wiggled her shoed foot at Mal’s Kneeling form. Most would imagine this would cause disgust in a normal individual. However, Mal was an experienced slave and servant.

Mal lowered his body into prostration as he removed the mistress’s shoe from her foot by removing their buckles and incredibly delicately removing the mistress’s shoe, while he observed any sounds she made in a serious attempt to avoid dissatisfying her. After which he would begin to remove her hose, a long fabric garment similar to a long pair of sock that sat beneath the clothing.
Mal carefully removed it by slightly stretching it to avoid clasping any skin and flesh and widening it to allow air to move between it and the skin, after which he could remove it avoiding displeasure to the mistress.

The hose was somewhat sweaty after all it would be expected with the ambient temperature and the garb that a lady was expected to wear to show off her status. He began servicing his mistress’s foot as she had demanded licking across the toes and the foot. The mistress let out a little giggle as if she had been tickled before swinging her left foot up cracking it into Mal’s face though she let out no sound of pain as Mal’s head kicked back slightly from the impact as he returned to prostration as blood began to well in his mouth and from his nose.

The lady took notice rather quicker, maybe she had sought this to happen. She clapped her hands proclaiming
“Out, Out don’t get blood in my carriage. Tai-rei can attend to me until later”.
Mal had little option to quickly remove himself from the carriage, he would have to walk alongside the caravan at its pace. He didn’t have time to even retrieve his wand and would have to let this wound heal by itself.
He emerged into the full light of the world as he hit the ground, tumbling over as he left the momentum of the carriage before as quickly as he could return to the pace of the carriage alongside it.

Of course, this emerger took the notice of the guards. However, not a single one questioned it as they saw the Eunuch quickly get to his feet and matching pace with the carriage.
Even if he had blood running from his face, they would not act on anything that minor. It likely wasn’t even a problem for them to witness such a thing. It was rather an expectation for them to witness such things dealt to a slave, the families Eunuch.
Even if any of them had any sympathy for the youngster they would not show it on their experienced faces, Mal did not expect anything as well.

It was not until that evening, that Mal would be able to truly clean himself up and return to his mistress’s side. It was his first time really encounter a few of the guardsmen and other caravan staff that his mistress’s caravan had joined up with.
For the most part most of the turned the other way. It seemed at least some of them knew to ignore him, while some did take notice the others were quickly to point out that it was of no worry and that the servant should expect as much for any possible inaction, they would at least become aware of his place.
