♬BGM: The adventure
Hoober became Krane’s first pupil and
grew up to become one of the best magic
engineers himself, not suspecting anything could ruin
his guaranteed future as a magic engineer.
Hoober was born to a blacksmith family,
the Smiths, as a normal second child.
Hoober would have remained as
a normal town blacksmith,
if he had not met the best magic engineer, ‘Krane’.
That changed his whole life.
First pupil of Krane,
a magic engineer
The judge was about to sentence Hoober to death penalty,
Krane came up and appealed for the last time.
This plea was accepted,
and thus Hoober was exiled from the guild,
only with his life.
One day, a trial was called upon Hoober for
siphoning magic equipments off to enemies,
which was a false accusation.
Hoober pleaded not guilty,
but all the judges were swayed by other pupils’ scheme,
and there was no one who were willing to listen to Hoober.
Hoober, as a competent and hard-working pupil,
earned Krane’s trust, but envy and jealousy of
other pupils followed.
Hoober first turned that offer down,
but Glados was very persistent,
and Hoober finally gave up to Glados,
and started the second chapter of his life as a miner.
Hoober’s skill shined even in mines,
and the equipment he developed has helped increasing
the mine’s production output tremendously.
Glados thought highly of Hoober’s understanding
of magic skill and minerals and offered him to
become a miner.
Hoober, having never imagined a life outside of
equipment developing, was wasting his life on alcohol.
Then ‘Glados’, a miner captain, came along to save his life.
Hoober became a household name in
all the continent for his skills.
In turn, his exile from the blacksmith guild
also drew attention again.
Eventually the truth came to light that
he was falsely accused, and Hoober’s name was cleared.
Krane expelled all those pupils who were responsible.
Krane offered Hoober to come back to the guild and
work together again, but Hoober turned this down,
because he wanted to stay loyal to Glados,
rather than the guild who exiled him.
Now Hoober is an undeniably proud miner,
looking for better veins in mines.
