Born to a poor fishing family, Lecarte’s exaltation was quite a surprise when it happened. As a Water Aspect he drew the attention of house Peleps and was quickly adopted into their ranks. His new family swiftly enrolled him in Pasiap’s Stair to prepare him for his future in the Imperial Navy. His years at the Stair were filled with successes and accolades, but before the end of his final semester something changed. He was disowned from House Peleps for a reason that was never revealed to anyone outside the Stair or The Deliberative. Without support from the Imperial City, he was now responsible for his own tuition. Having no other choice, he bought a ship with a stipend he was granted and took up a job with the Trade Bureaus hoping to gain enough money to pay it off.
