Why this story?

After writing Outcrossing, I got curious about Rufus Pride. It's clear from that book that Rufus has very fond memories of his apprentice master, but also that his apprenticeship was cut short due to the War.   I was also curious how Rufus came to grips with the strength of his magic.
