The Power of Knowledge
Mischeivous street urchin turned archaeologist's apprentice.
Bruno Flanton was one of two brothers orphaned ten years ago when his mother finally died of an incurable mallady that she had suffered from all her adult life. His older brother left Daunton after only a short time.
After six years on the street, Bruno was caught by the Professor whilst attempting to steal valuables from Scruppsworth Manor. The Professor agreed not to inform the town guard about the offence if Bruno would be his apprentice; a job that would entail much hard work and labour, but that would also train his mind and raise him above his current station.
