Kir is a powerful tanner; however, he has never bragged about his power.
He has always tried to resolve all his arguments without fists. He didn't even want to fight the Firedrake for a really long time. But, unfortunately, he had to.
After the glorious victory he happily returned to his normal life – by day he worked on tannage, by night he educated his children and admired his beautiful wife. And it seemed that nothing had changed in his life.
But after a while the Tanners had another son. Kir and his wife were by then at a rather advanced age which is why they hadn't expected yet another son. But they both were really happy about this destiny's gift.
The unhoped-for boy was called Nicky.
