My Bard Griffin Marco Weaver...
"At thirteen, Griff had become a Master Bard, but he was far too young to be left to his own devices so he began teaching at the school. He learned many difficult lessons about authority as he taught. Incoming students, many of which had years on Griff, had difficulty taking direction from a scrawny teenager, thus, Griff learned to be masterful befitting his station. He earned respect of newcomers through his own self assuredness and poise, in spite of his size and youth. He concentrated on making his students see their strengths without focusing on their weaknesses, he made them comfortable with his youth by showing them the possibilities at their fingertips if they were open to his teachings.
Griff left the school on his eighteenth birthday and set out to fill the world with his music. He spent ten years traveling, ending his journeys in SwanStone where he took the position of Master Bard, a position that had been offered at every stop along his trek. He did not, however, hold court each day or live in the traditional lodging of the Master Bard, instead he purchased a tavern in the center of town and did all his work there. It was an unusual choice of venue, but the fathers of SwanStone considered it a great feat to have Griff at all and adjusted their notion of Master Bard until it was synonymous with Griff."
