Artix von Krieger was born on April 20, 1325 to two farmers; Wilhelm von Kreiger, and Aimil Jones. He was born in the rural outskirts of the small town Willow Creek. He has one older brother, Adhamh, and one younger sister, Kaley. His older brother was born on February 12, 1319, and died from a skin disease on March 14, 1332. This made Artix and Kaley's lives a lot more harder as they grew up. Wilhelm and Aimil became very abusive and strict to both Artix and Kaley after the death of Adhamh, and rarely showed parental love. When Artix was 8 years old, his parents sent him to the Paladin Order, the home base of the Paladins to study rather than do physical labour at the farm.
On May 24, 1333 Artix was sent to the Paladin Order to study. His parents thought he had no purpose in working on the farm as he was physically weak. His parents thought he would have been better to become a priest for the Paladins. However, the idea of making Artix a scholar did not work out that well. Artix was a very energetic and hasty kid who was extremely impatient. He was never in the mood to learn, and never bothered to learn. Artix was considered to be a deliquent among many priests.
