He happened upon a general store with all the supplies he needed and took to getting them. He was, however spotted by the store owner and in the ensuing commotion the store owner caught Lemik and a crowd was also drawn into the store. As was standard, jail and the cutting off of a the perpetraitor’s hand were the punishment. The store owner decided that he was going to perform the latter himself and moved to cut off his hand. As the store owner was in mid strike his hand was caught by a dwarven paladin who had been a spectator in the crowd. The dwarf convinced the store owner to hand over Lemik for three times the amount he would fetch as a slave. The dwarf ,Sorin, took Lemik back to his home where he treated him as if he was his child. They rapidly bonded and become like father and son to each other. Sorin taught Lemik the dwarven language and trained him martially and spiritually in the ways of dwarves. Sorin ,being of the order of paladins called the Trueforged,allowed Lemik to train with the paladins in this order.

Lemik ,eager to test himself and bolstered by his new found faith left for Northwall where adventure and challenge had reached his ear.
