You live on the edge of the metropolis of Resual, the jewel of the country. And yet the prosperity brought in by the capital city doesn't find it's way to you as you have racial backgrounds or abilities that few understand and even fewer accept. Because of this you must tirelessly work to eek out a living among the slums which you were born into. Each day presents it's own problems among the dirty alleyways and dreary streets where the only people are like you, the outcasts of society.
The only daily goal is survival. Either by brute force or cunning can one survive at the bottom rung of society. While social status improvement isn't impossible it is hard. Only those whom can earn it move up. If and when that happens it's completely up to you.
