"I was trained to fight and bend the beast to mankind's service; not skills in great demand here. We've never needed to fight- thanks to Akara's protection- and Alder refuses to allow beasts in the village."
Cillian Keen is a Beast Master who was taught to tame animals for use in combat. However, while residing in Cape Solace, his skills went unused on account of their being protected by Akara. Cillian Keen was prohibited by Alder from keeping beasts within Cape Solace and as a result was never truly happy there.
