My name is Shin Purpleton. That’s how I am called that for convenience’s sake.
I didn’t have a parent to raise me in the slums. The number of orphanages in this kingdom is very few, and because of their awful circumstances, numerous orphans chose to escape from them towards the slum. The same goes for me, who had to live off shoplifting and stealing from others in order to survive. Of course, there were times where I slipped up and got beaten half-dead in result.
At some point, I was picked up by now, my mistress, Chloe Sereknight. Her father, the prime minister to the right, Duke Blackia Sereknight, had taken her towards the slum to let her observe the slum’s circumstances. At that time, I felt the noble must gotten mad to bring his daughter to such a filthy place. But in truth, Chloe was taken there at such a young age, to familiarize herself with the situation of the entire country, both as the prospective Saintess, and the Queen Candidate.
Utterly ignorant of their circumstances, I tagged along with my slum friends to attack the carriage of rich nobles whom we thought, went to the slum for their amusement. Sure enough, we ended up gotten done in by their escorts easily instead.
Chloe had gotten fond of me as I was being taken away along with my comrades. Much of the reason was that she found the color of my hair and eyes to her liking. Apparently, in other countries, amethyst-colored hair and eyes were a sign of royal blood.
The hell was that? That doesn’t concern me anyway,I thought.
After all, there’s no way a royalty would go all the way to the slum of a neighboring country to abandon their child. I was certain that it was just some sort of coincidence. Nevertheless, Chloe’s fondness was not the first time either. I had been taken in by countless aristocrats to their manor, as their plaything.
After being on the receiving end of their extremely disgusting treatments, I had escaped towards the slum numerous times too.
All of the aristocrats in this country are trash.
With that belief, I was initially against the idea of being taken to the ducal manor. But what we had raided on that day was the duke’s carriage, and I was aware that I could have been executed on the spot instead. That’s why in order to survive, I had to become Chloe’s dog abandoning my comrades in the process.
Chloe was the one to give me the name Shin. It seems like that was the name of her pet that had previously died. She told me that it was a clever bird, capable of learning words, and had beautiful purple wings.
In the manor, I was given high-quality clothing, taught how to read and write, and drilled with manners as well as escorting skills.
The “Purpleton” last name came from the head butler of the house, who was also my teacher. However, I have never thought of him as a parent. He was nothing but a person who blindly follows the House Sereknight, who never batted an eye to Chloe’s selfishne
