Slavery had been Illegal in the land of Westeros for thousands of years. If one was caught with the inhumane act, they would be executed at once. However, this did not stop others with this vile act. Whenever if it was for money or for pleasure, slavery still reeked in the shadows of the great continent.
Toris, or Taurys, as his slaveholder said, was one of the few slaves that remained in Westeros. As a prisoner of war, he was stripped apart his name and his former house that he served, House Stark into a person filled with fear and own doubt. For several years, he moved from place to place with his holder, for his holder feared the law and the dire consequences.
Today, His holder had told him of a person with high honor will take him far away and be the permanent servant. Of course, Toris did not object. If he would be taken away from his holder, then he would at least find some peace. With orders from the holder, he took off the dirty rags that hung loosely from his own body to exchange for a white tunic, fastened with leather belts and brushed his hair from a ratted, disgusting mess to smooth strands.
The holder burst into Toris’ room and grabbed him by the wrists for him to come out of the chamber. Fearing punishment, he obeyed his holder and looked away as his hands and feet were chained together, giving little movement as he shuffled obediently towards the outdoors, where he was going to be taken away.
"You will be good today, Taurys.." The holder whispered into his ear, his alcoholic and rotten breath searing into Toris’ ears. "Your new home is one of the richest in the land, and your master is nothing short of a pure warrior. So don’t try to run away like you always do." Toris nodded in agreement and his eyes tried to shift away from seeing the holder. Before the holder could react, a thunder of hooves can be heard.
Appearing to the both of them were two knights, and hooded stranger. While the knights had brown horses, the hooded stranger rode a white one, adorned with gold armor and jewels. “Good afternoon to ye!” He spoke towards the hooded one. “I got your request and given you the best worker in all of the lands, sir!” his voice echoed as the other got off his horse, his red and purple cape covering his whole body and face. Toris could only watch as the stranger came to him closer and closer.
