"IT HAS TO BE PERFECT! THE PURGE DOESN'T TOLERATE ANYTHING LESS THAN PERFECT!"
BioLudwig was born after the Great Sky War and during the reign of the Purge over the humans. From a young age his parent pressured him to learn how to use his musical talent to gain fame for his family.
His parents were mistakenly killed during a riot after the birth of his sister Sophie, causing him to cling to her. He mastered his talents and became one of the most famous composers in The Inner Lands, but then Ludwig noticed that something was wrong with Sophie. Sophie was going deaf.
Knowing that the Purge didn't tolerate anything less than perfect, he told her they had to leave because he was going deaf...and she believed him. They left with several friends, which is how they ended up in The Outer Lands, past the great storm.
