- “My friends, I am Alejandro Jose Gabriel de Nacimiento Modesto!”
- — Alejandro, introducing himself
Ramiro de Cabrera was born to a poor woman. His father was rumored to be a celebrated Riojan actor, but if this is true, the man never acknowledged Ramiro as his son. In order to provide for his mother and half-brother and achieve the recognition and approval of his father, Ramiro sought to become a playwright and join The Leaf, the dominant Riojan theatrical guild. His father knew what an embarrassment it would be to acknowledge a son so late in his life, so he had The Leaf send the young man away to seek inspiration for his great work.
On traveling across the Bale Sea, Ramiro crafted a new identity for himself: Alejandro Jose Gabriel de Nacimiento Modesto. Alejandro was everything that Ramiro wanted to be: high-born, confident, and successful.
