Clyde never knew his father. He died while fighting in the Illusion Wars just prior to Clyde’s birth and the Illithid retreat. His father was a master class blacksmith that was able to create weapons made of a material that would never break or dull. Clyde’s goal is to recreate his father’s steel and to continue on with his legacy. After reaching out to the school for admittance he was surprised to hear them offer him a full scholarship.
