Fed with a silver spoon but always taught humility? How, and why by? Did his parents want him to stay humble or as it something that he picked up from his teachers and retainers? Also, was his job as an assassin widely known? If so, where did he operate? as it in court amongst other nobles or on mission? Those are a fair few jobs for one person to have.

Interesting questions, all of which I have answers, but I won't say they're all fool-proof, and I will add these in a later date, but not now.   It all started with the a usurper, a man from the bloodline who spent life in pure luxury with no discipline, before this, the high lords of the past were like smug elves, but after the usurper's reign, which was filled by massacres of independent cities who didn't obey him, and accidentally screwing over an evil cult by several decades, since all of them were murdered, was ended by a distant relative who was a upright politician who wished for reforms, the politician along with his companions, which later became lords of cities and Shadowblade along with the people protesting, reformed the empire and instilled values approved by all, surprisingly they kept a monarchy because of persuasion and evidence by previous high lord.   His parents also passed down the values of the politician turned High Lord   His job as an assassin wasn't an official one, but he was trained by his own will, and did go on missions with his future wife during skirmishes before his coronation, to surprise his enemies.   The Lords and High Lord usually have another role to fill, for example of of them is a high priestess, while another is a master tinker.
