My name is Jonas Callahan and I am a man. At the age of twelve I became an apprentice to my father as a blacksmith. In the summers I would leave my home in Britain to work in the mines that supplied the forges with ore. I learned the qualities of the ores and how to mix them to create new metal alloys. When I was fourteen years old I moved out and joined a shipping company. I started out loading the ships and keeping an inventory of the parcels being readied for transport. I made sure every order was filled, processed, and delivered correctly by following up with the customers. If there ever was a discrepancy in an order I would personally see to it that it was completed to the satisfaction of the customer. My business was so successful that at the age of sixteen I was promoted to chief of operations and customer relations. I would buy, maintain, and operate a fleet of one hundred and twenty ships. I took a company that had been passed down for generations as a local business and built it into a transcontinental processing plant for big industries operating out of Britain. I made sure that my fleet was always in optimal condition by restlessly taking out of service and refurbishing or replacing damaged or aging ships. All my crews took pride in their work because it was I that gave them the tools to do it. When I turned twenty-four years old I returned home to take over my father's smithy. My father had a few loyal customers who had stuck with him through thick and thin, but the majority of business in Britain was going to contractors working for The Lord's Arms. Those interested in low prices found a Mecca of craftsmen buying from The Hammer and Anvil. I wanted both of these markets so I went to work testing new combinations of ores to create stronger, lighter, and more durable metal alloys. My craftsmanship soon gained popularity throughout Britain for excellence, and business boomed. It was not long before I began receiving orders from outside Britain on the account of my growing reputation. There was so much work coming in that it was impossible to meet the demand. I had a waiting list for my customers that was growing. I decided that I must expand my operation to meet the growing demand for my business. I found able men who took pride in their work and put them in charge of my operations in Britain then packed my bags. I traveled from place to place where my reputation preceded me and I set up shop in each of those places. I taught the locals my craft. Wherever I was in demand, that is where I would go and build. When business was good and my operation was in place I would move on again. Every place I set up shop became a boom town. I had more wealth than I knew what to do with, but the only motivating factor within me was pressing the limits of my capability and reaching my full potential. So, when I heard the promise of the new frontier of Umbra, there was no doubt in me that anything is possible in what I could accomplish there.
